Auto Damage Appraiser Jobs

Auto Damage Appraiser Overview


An Appraiser is a person appointed to determine the true value of property. An Auto Damage Appraiser assesses passenger and commercial vehicles that have been damaged in an accident. During such an appraisal, the Appraiser ascertains the true value of the vehicle immediately prior to the accident, the current value of the vehicle and any potential costs associated with returning the vehicle to its previous condition. Auto Damage Appraisers often work directly for insurance companies, but many of them work for fleet managers, law firms and consulting firms, or independent contractors.

Auto Damage Appraiser Education Requirements


Many colleges and technical schools offer programs specifically for auto damage appraisal. According to statistics, 83.1 percent of all Auto Damage Appraisers have at least some college, and 39.3 percent possess a bachelor’s degree. Most states require Appraisers to possess specific licenses and certifications, and those requirements vary from state to state. An Appraiser curriculum will generally prepare the student for employment in the state where it is located, but most states have programs in place that allow Appraisers to transfer their licenses and certifications. Core skills required by Appraisers include mathematics, oral comprehension and expression, written comprehension and expression, and customer service.

An Auto Damage Appraiser can also fill a wide range of Insurance jobs, including Insurance Adjuster.
