Collision Service Investigators-NC Endorses




Collision Service Investigators - NC owner, Danny Wyatt, is a past member of the North Carolina Department of Insurance External Appraiser and Repair Task Force Board 2018 - 2020. Danny knows for a FACT that current Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey and his Top Staff are allowing auto insurance adjusters to stick it to collision claimants. On total loss claims alone, auto insurers are being allowed to under-appraise total loss vehicles by at least $39 Million a year since October 2020. 

Natasha Marcus "I’m not taking insurance company money. It’s wrong to create a conflict of interest. I want to be an Insurance Commissioner who works for the people, not the insurance companies. My integrity isn’t up for sale."


"As your next Commissioner of Insurance, I promise to be an advocate for every North Carolinian, ensuring that insurance companies operate with integrity under our watch."

Vote Mike Causey OUT as Insurance Commissioner! Vote for Natasha Marcus as Insurance Commissioner!

Exceptionally knowledgeable and hardworking. Danny was well educated and understood the urgency and importance of his services. He secured well above what was initially offered by the insurance company which far exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend him for his honesty and thorough understanding of his field of work.

Danny helped me with my recent total loss value which was few thousands more than what my insurance company first offered me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and he walked through every step over the phone and was every step ahead of what would come out from the insurance company. The process was fast, he kept me updated and my insurance company finally agreed with almost what Danny quoted. I wish I had contacted him much earlier to get off the stress with my total loss car value that the insurance company first offered. Thanks again Danny and very much appreciate your work !

 I am so glad I called Danny - I had no perspective on how to calculate Diminished Value. The online formulas I found were worthless. Get Danny's help if you are new to this area. He knows the terrain and can tell you upfront how the process is likely to pan out. And he will work hard to get a reasonable offer from the insurance company - which he was able to do for me. Thanks Danny!
