About Damage Appraisal
DEKRA is Europe’s #1 for damage appraisals of today’s increasingly high-tech vehicles. When damage occurs, our customers rely on the specialist knowledge of DEKRA’s neutral and knowledgeable experts to assess the extent and pinpoint the cause of damage.
DEKRA’s skilled specialists can address the toughest technical challenges, gathering all the information and evidence required for an insurance claim. The damage appraisals for automotive claims done by our experts are mainly related to insurance companies.
Whether it is a car damage or a harvester damage claim, DEKRA’s range of vehicle damage appraisals services are comprehensive, marketable and process suited. They contain comprehensive pictorial documentation and a detailed description of the damage; inform about any pre-existing damages, plausibility, the actual loss and overall condition of the vehicle.
Our damage appraisals are a standard product for all types of vehicle damage. They are prepared for both liability and comprehensive insurance damage. DEKRA’s experts amass all the data required for the preservation of evidence and the establishment of a basis for the settlement of damage, founded on the respective private liability, liability or comprehensive insurance conditions or policies.
In cases of clearly recognizable total loss, cost-effective “lump sum” appraisals are prepared. These contain the estimated cost of spare parts, wages and paint, or only the total repair costs. This applies to instruction to our experts by both private individuals and insurance companies.
