  • What is an auto damage appraiser? Do I need that license?

    There are two components to handling an auto claim; appraising the damage to the vehicle and settling the claim itself. Appraisers play a key role in this process, since motor vehicle claims require specialized knowledge of auto repair that most adjusters simply don’t have. That’s where auto damage appraisers come in: these insurance professionals inspect vehicle damage, calculate the worth of the vehicle, and write an estimate for repair. Then the adjuster settles the claim based on the appraisal. Many states require adjusters to hold both licenses if they want to work on both parts of the claim — the appraisal and the settlement. Two states, Connecticut and South Carolina, require adjusters to hold both licenses to work on any part of an auto claim.
