Sometimes your transferee or assured is not sure of the value; or perhaps there’s a discrepancy as to the value of a damaged or missing item. Perhaps your claimant has included a claim for loss in value to an item. We can help by writing an appraisal report to help determine:
- Diminution of Value
- Potential Salvage Value
- …and more!
Appraisals are handled through our sister company: Franco & Associates, Inc. Victor Franco, Jr. is an accredited member with the International Society of Appraisers (ISA) and reports are written to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) standards
Inland Marine Surveyors
You have surveyed the loss, identified the vessel and route, and those involved; confirmed and documented the damage; Now, let us help you help your insurers and underwriters by supplying estimates and restoration advice to help determine when and where restoration is practical. Often this can be accomplished from good photographs at a reasonable cost
Writing a Damage/Loss appraisal for an Insurance Adjustor? Always a good idea to include a paragraph on restoration potential (or lack of) from a qualified restorer. Supply your client with “Broad Evidence” and give them the tools and options to properly evaluate and adjust their claims. This also can usually be accomplished from good photographs at a reasonable cost
Protecting the rights of the policyholder is only half the job. It’s also about the desire of the homeowner and helping them “make whole” those items that they can’t simply replace. We can help by providing estimates and accomplishing these restorations
Fire & Water Mitigation Companies
Whether you have a small company or a national franchise driving the big green trucks; you probably do most of your own clean-ups which is fine for 90% of the items. However for those Antiques, fragile, or fine furniture pieces that require a restorer’s touch, please give us a call. We can work with you as a sub-contractor or bill the insurer directly.
Have a transferee requesting additional Insurance or Valuation coverage? We can write a pre-move, pre-storage condition report for those items scheduled on a high value inventory, as well as photo documentation. This will help the insurer protect their interests as well as protect the assured in case of a major loss.
