About Document Check
Our document checks are a standard product for all types of vehicle damage, providing insurance companies with cost-efficient verification and electronic document checks of cost estimates, external expert appraisals or repair invoices. They are prepared for both liability and comprehensive insurance damage in the automotive sector.
DEKRA’s document check service consists of two stages. In the first stage, the document is checked digitally. Then, in the second stage, an expert makes further corrections that go beyond the computerized check. Level one can be applied separately or in combination with level two.
Documents are checked for technical compliance and, if necessary, correction proposals and recommendations for action are made. The scope of document checks includes criteria such as incidental costs, transport costs, retail price surcharges, hourly rates, replacement value, diminution in value, residual value, repair time and replacement time.
