What Is...
What Is Diminished Value
Diminished Value (DV) is the loss in market value that occurs when a vehicle is wrecked and repaired.
A reasonable consumer will not pay the same price for a wrecked, then repaired vehicle, as they will for a vehicle with no accident history. Even if the repairs were done well, the vehicle will still lose value.

The Diminished Value Experts

David Montanaro is a licensed appraiser in the State of Georgia as well as certified South Carolina licensed Insurance Appraiser #780097. He began working in the diminished value field in 1976 as a staff vehicle material damage appraiser for Liberty Mutual Insurance Company where he worked for 18 months. He then took a position with Kemper Insurance Company.

During his 24 years with Kemper, David continued to write diminished value as well as ACV reports and is considered an expert in the vehicle appraisal field. Since then, David has owned and sold 2 successful collision repair facilities in Atlanta, GA and Charleston, SC. Because of Davids background and experience, it was only natural that he decided to continue being an advocate to customers who have been involved in an auto accident and therefore he now writes Diminished Value and Actual Cash Value (ACV) reports as a specialty.
