Re: What should salvage value be?

Well forgive the observation,but we tend to think the insurance companys are dumb as far as value.But they can also read on the internet.It would not surprise me at all that the adjuster might have done a google search before offereing a settlement and may even be checking this thread.

Re: What should salvage value be?

That car was worth more than 10 grand before it was hit,I can't see them getting out that cheap unless you get to keep the car.
I know with a neigbors toyoda truck,they offered 4600 and take it,or 3600 and he keep it. Engine was worth more than a grand so,he will probably keep and resale.
