  • 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.

  • What does reciprocity look like for South Carolina Auto Appraisers?

    South Carolina grants reciprocal licensing privileges to any non-resident applicant who holds an appraiser license in his home state. If the applicant’s license status cannot be verified, he must provide a legible certification from his home state’s Department of Insurance. This certification must prove the applicant is a licensed appraiser who has passed the state exam.

    If the applicant’s home state does not require an appraiser exam, then he may submit a certification from another state’s Department of Insurance where he is licensed and has passed an appraiser exam.
