    Desktop Reports

    Desktop reports is a good alternative when say a vehicle is unavailable for inspection or for high volume repair authorisation. Our Glassmatix estimating system combined with the experts who used them can enable us to negotiate and authorise repairs very quickly. Desktop reports include a majority of the services we provide for a normal accident damage report but at a lower cost.

    Our experts examine a vehicle after it has been repaired to ensure the repairs were done in an acceptable slandered, safely and as per the instructions given to the repairers. These are carried for re-insurance purposes, diminution in value assessments, fraud investigations or for client's peace of mind.

    If you have a matter that relates to any of the services Blake Assessors provides, we are happy to give free without prejudice and impartial advice. This could be related to consistency of damage, if a vehicle is un-roadworthy or anything else. Often this reduces unwarranted costs and avoids unnecessary litigation proceedings so don't hesistate to contact us.

    Diminution in Value

    Diminution of Value is known as a measure of value lost due to a circumstance or set of circumstances that caused the loss. The circumstances often involve but are not limited to damage parts of the body-shell or chassis, and/or significant paintwork. Our experts examine the vehicle and consider the type, extent and cost of repairs, together with the vehicles market desirability, value and age and provide an opinion on the likely drop in value upon sale.
