At PDA, our appraisers apply the same commitment to fast, accurate heavy equipment estimates as they do to auto estimates. What’s more, with field offices all over the country, we can estimate repairs for Over-the-Road and specialty equipment wherever it’s headed. In fact, every PDA office across the country has at least one trained and certified heavy equipment appraisal expert.
The PDA Heavy Equipment Training School is the nation’s only provider of classroom and hands-on training for heavy equipment appraisals. In order to complete our heavy equipment training, appraisers learn consistent and accurate ways to write estimates on tractor trailers, school buses and almost any kind of OTR heavy equipment – and they see firsthand at a salvage yard and a repair shop what’s required to make repairs. The week-long training helps PDA appraisers become more than just technical experts. They also learn to improve the overall experience for our clients. After completing the course, seeing vehicles mid-repair and learning directly from repair shop techs, appraisers are equipped to guide clients and insurance companies through the entire estimate process.
