Several websites offer diminished value calculators that profess to provide an accurate estimate of the loss in the value of your Alabama car.

Total Loss Calculator
In some cases, your insurance company may advise that your vehicle is a total loss. In this situation, they have determined that the cost of repair exceeds the value of the car. Insurance companies could be using this tactic to avoid costly repairs, and an online calculator may not provide an accurate assessment on your behalf. Seek the opinion of a professional, independent third-party appraiser.
