The most critical decision around any high severity damage claim is whether repair or replacement is the most cost-effective option for a claims organization.
A large part of that decision centers around expectations for salvage value. Salvage quotes can influence multiple aspects of claim handling. An accurate salvage value expectation can improve communication with vehicle owners, minimize storage fees at a body shop, reduce unnecessary tear-down operations, and even enable subrogating reps and arbiters to increase or justify recovery efforts.
Salvage quotes from MAST offer claims organizations an improvement over their solutions on all vehicle claims, including passenger, commercial transport, agricultural equipment, construction equipment, and recreational vehicles.
If it can move, we can quote it. All quotes include multiple comparison units, a narrow range of expectations for salvage performance at auction, and a narrative explaining the salvage projection to assist claim handling reps in conversation with vehicle owners or subrogating reps as they document salvage expectations.
Most claim organizations incur 60-90 days of processing time from decision to total to receipt of auction proceeds. All quotes from MAST are driven by recent and expected future market performance. Our quotes enable a claim organization to make repair/replace decisions today based on what an individual vehicle will sell for tomorrow.
Additionally, all quoted vehicles are tracked through the auction to ensure quote expectations are met, and accuracy variance on salvage quotes from MAST are measured and reported quarterly to maintain confidence in claim handling decisions.
