I highly recommend David Montanaro
I highly recommend David Montanaro. Thanks to his work, I was able to receive a fair diminished value settlement from GEICO. Although he may cost slightly more than other independent adjusters on the market, he was extremely professional, easy to work with, and extremely flexible with my schedule. Additionally, he provided me with the information I needed to make my own empowered decision.
He inspected my car in person at my place of residence at my convenience. The inspection involved careful inspection of the repaired area. He also brought several tools to aid him with the process. (Magnets and a “rag” or “towel” to lay down on to look under the car).
Details: Corolla was initially estimated to cost $1,000 to repair and I initially received a $300 check for diminished value. After taking the car to my dealer, the car cost over $5,000 to fix but my original GEICO adjuster continued to argue that the diminished value should stay $300 based on severity of the damage, and other factors. I hired David Montanaro to provide me with an independent adjuster report which I submitted to GEICO in order to get a fair diminished value from the insurer. At the time of the service, the cost of $375 ($275 for the report and $100 to handle additional communications with the insurance company). The result was a diminished value settlement of $3,000.
David is outstanding
My daughrer was in an accident and her car was totalled, two weeks after she purchased her car from a reputable dealer. The insurance company wanted us to settle for $3000 less than what she paid even though the accident was mother fault. After arguing for three weeks I called David and ended up settling for what she paid for the car. It was the best $375 we ever spent.
David is #1 in the diminished value field!
I hired David to help me with the painstaking process of fighting a diminished value claim on my brand new truck. I hired a tree company to clear trees from my home. Unfortunately, a large tree fell directly on top of my truck that had less than 6K miles on it! After getting nowhere with the tree companies insurance, I contacted David to help me with the damages. It was money well spent. He was the strong arm at dealing with the insurance company. He has cutting edge knowledge in regards to diminished value, as well as how the insurance companies work throughout the process. He turned a $900.00 offer from the insurance company into $4,100.00. I would highly advise anyone to use David’s services. No one has the experience he does in this field!
David Montanaro Wow This person Knows what he’s doing. A REAL PROFSSSIONAL
Back on May 1, 2018 my 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK 280 convertible roadster was
involved in an accident in a parking lot. The car was towed to a collision center recommended by the insurance company the original bill was $7100 which was paid in full by the insurance company I contacted David after getting the car out of the shop and he had it inspected at the Mercedes dealership. He found another $4446 in damages to the car. The insurance company agreed to pay it. In addition to that I collected $2500 for the-diminished value.
Thank you David
His fee was under $300.00
Great work, David!
My son’s Honda Civic was totaled after being rear ended by a drunk driver. The insurance company offered less than 1/2 of what we paid for the car l.5 years ago. I contacted David and he helped me through the entire process with the vehicle and the claim and was able to get the insurance company to increase the amount initially offered by several thousand dollars netting us close to what we paid for the car 1.5 years ago. I highly recommend David – his knowledge of insurance and collisions is extensive, he’s professional, kind and knows his stuff! Thank you for your assistance, David, now I know that the “little guy” can win against the “big bad insurance company” – I never knew any of this before talking to David.
David will fight for you
I had no idea how to get compensated for diminished value when my parked car was wrecked by a drunk driver. David prepared the reports and helped me go after a big repair shop that made my car worse and an insurance company that recommended them! He was aggressive and he knows exactly what it takes to get the insurance companies to do the right thing. He has been in the collision repair industry for years and he knows all the ways insurance and repair shops will take advantage of YOU. David will fight for you! Don’t settle for being ripped off, give him a call.
David triumphs over Goliath
My wife was involved in an accident that left her 2014 Toyota looking totaled. The insurance company sent a check for less than $300 for the Diminished Value settlement. This was not only an insult but, in my opinion, a down right dishonest way to conduct business.
I had heard of David through a friend who was very pleased with what David had done for him. Having gone through this ordeal with David’s expertise and professional savvy, I know beyond a doubt that he made the insurance company stand up and treat us fairly.
The new check, for the diminished value, is almost 14 time greater than their first offer. Not to mention the fact that he also found several items the body shop had not fixed correctly and we got that remedied for free.
I highly recommend David and Southern Automotive Consultants to anyone needing a win against Goliath.
Thank you, David. It was a memorable experience and one that will not be forgotten.
Introduced to David through the Porsche dealership and I am so glad I did. He made all the difference. Worth every penny. The insurance company tried to take me for a ride!
Insurance company original diminished value was low. David helped got me a $1200 higher value. I could not have gotten the additional value without his expert help.
I had a very troubled claim and David and his Team navigated a pathway to success. Thank you for your experience, knowledge and professionalism!
