    Default "Total Loss" replacement vs. trade-in value?? 7536

    Apparently, insurance company repairs as well as 'total loss' claims are lowballed as a general practice. I just read an article at www.claimsreporter.com that says that you can get on average, the ~$2K difference needed to get a replacement ride (vs. trade-in)... for sure, if it was not your fault. Anyone got any experience with using a local 3rd party appraisal to get more $$ back?

    Good luck. They use their own appraisers, or an appraisal service.

    But, these guys are fair, usually. You have a deductable; go to
    NADAGUIDES.COM, look up your vehicle, and have that when you see the
    appraiser. They are usually flexible; they know you're not made of money.
