dealerships vs insurance companies

Have you ever totaled a car? Being in an accident, violent enough to “total” out your car, can be a scary ordeal. Not only is the car crash itself traumatic, but now you have to deal with the insurance company. The insurance company will evaluate your car and how much they are going to write you a check for.

More times than not consumers are left to fend for themselves. It’s like throwing a sheep into a pack of wolves. When you’re dealing with a totaled vehicle and fighting the insurance companies, it can feel like there is no one there to help.

Heck, it may even feel like you don’t need help! After all, you’re just wanting to get a check so you can purchase a new vehicle and get on the road as soon as possible. Did you know that the insurance company is probably “shorting” you on the amount of money you can get?

I know, it’s crazy to think that right? But they are. Most of the time you are left out high and dry. Unless you can find a car dealership that will go to bat for you with the insurance companies! There is one such used car dealership in Wilmington, NC that will go to bat for it’s customers.

Routinely haggling with insurance companies to get an extra $2,000-$4,000 per case! In one such case they even got someone an extra $6,700! With out the advocacy of Bruce Cavenaugh, his customers would have settled for much much less than what the car was actually worth!

So, the next time you’re dealing with a “totaled” out wrecked vehicle, go to your local dealership and see if your dealership will be an advocate for you with your insurance company. It can be a win-win.

You get more money for your insurance claim to buy a new car, and you can just spend that money at the dealership fighting on your behalf!
