How to get insurance companies to pay for your totaled car

If you're tired of haggling with the insurance company to get paid for your car, motorcycle, RV, or boat claim, you need to invoke your right to an appraisal. 

All insurance companies in Michigan, like most states, are required by law to have a policy clause called "The Right to an Appraisal." This provision allows an insured to protest a settlement offer by hiring an unbiased independent appraiser to represent them during their total loss claim. 

You can't dispute the insurance company's offer after you settle so it's important to contact Motor City Appraisers before you get underpaid

My name is Marty Ruth, owner of Motor City Auto Appraisal, fueled by Auto Appraisal Network. I have over thirty years in the collision repair and auto appraisal business. I’ve increased my clients settlements by more than $400,000 in little over two years alone.

Motor City Auto Appraisers is the only independent appraisal company in Michigan that solely represents the insureds and not the insurance companies. We work for you! Our competitors get the bulk of their business from big insurance companies. If you hire anyone else, your hiring the insurance company's appraiser.

Contact us to discuss your specific situation and settlement.
