Wilmington is the largest city in the state of Delaware, United States, and is located at the confluence of the Christina River and Brandywine Creek, near where the Christina flows into the Delaware River. It is the county seat of New Castle County and one of the major cities in the Delaware Valley metropolitan area. Wilmington was named by Proprietor Thomas Penn after his friend Spencer Compton, Earl of Wilmington, who was prime minister in the reign of George II of Great Britain. Interstate 95, which splits Wilmington roughly into eastern and western halves, provides access to major markets in the Northeast and nationwide. Interstate 495 is a bypass just east of the city, and Interstate 295 is south of the city, crossing the Delaware River into New Jersey.
"If you have ever have the chance to visit Delaware during the summer time, it is by far the most beautiful state in the lower 48. Yes it does have cold winters but the summer time makes it all worth it. As some of you may already know one of the leading causes of automobile accidents in Wilmington is wildlife. Majority of wildlife related accidents are caused by Deer. One day while driving down the road and an deer out of no where came walking across the freeway. With no room to turn or sway my vehicle, I hit the deer head on with my new Ford Pickup. I just purchased it a few months ago and I was so upset. I called the police to report the accident and in return that dispatched a tow truck driver to the scene. The damage was very bad, I remember the hood being bent so far up I couldn't see out my own windshield. After talking with the tow truck driver, I realized my new truck was totaled.
I asked him, what would I need to do to get my claim handled correctly. The driver happened to have a business card for these guys. He said "here call Pinnacle. I have referred numerous customers to them and they have all been very pleased with their work." So I took Pinnacle Auto Appraisers business card and held on to it. After a week, I finally heard back from the insurance company and they made me an offer on my truck. During the last few days I decided to do my own research to compare with the appraisal the insurance company provided. I was not happy with their offer. It was almost $5,000 less than what I saw my book value to be and also what is was selling for. I told the insurance company I wasn't going to accept and called Pinnacle. After speaking with the appraiser, I felt much better. He explained to me how the process works and that they would handle the negotiations for me. After just a few days I received the appraisal and it looked very professional. After not hearing from Pinnacle Auto Appraisers for a few days, I finally got a call from my Certified Auto Appraiser. Not only did he get more money out of them but he got almost $4,200 just like I expected. These guys know their stuff and if you want a company that will handle it for you, hire these guys. Great Job! ~ Christian C. - Wilmington, DE
