What is Dealer Ready?
Here's a free tip that could save you hundreds.
Dealer ready is a term used by CCC, ADP, and other appraisal companies to deduct value from a total loss vehicle.
What they are saying is that your car was not in dealer ready condition the day of the accident. This is a very easy deduction to get reimbursed. All it usually takes is to bring it up. Just tell the adjuster that your vehicle was not owned by a dealership and was not for sale the day of the accident so there is no reason for that deduction to appear on the appraisal.
The adjuster's only rebuttal would be to say that they are pricing your vehicle as if it were for sale the day of the car accident and it is therefore eligible for the deduction because you would have to spend that money to make your vehicle presentable for sale. All you have to say is that the number they are using for their dealer ready figure is purely conjecture. I've never failed to reverse this deduction.
