Same-Day and Next-Day Service
PDA holds the nation's industry-leading cycle time of less than two days** for auto, but if you need an estimate even faster, its Same-Day Service guarantees an estimate the same day, or it's free.
If you don't want to upgrade to Same-Day Service, but still want an estimate the next day, PDA's Next-Day service option reduces downtime, helps close claims faster and improves the customer experience.
PDA is the first independent appraiser to offer Same-Day Service for auto damage estimates. Now, available in markets across the U.S.
**Cycle time claims are based on a monthly average of estimate cycle times across all PDA offices, calculated in business days.
