Equipment Damage Consultants (EDC) provides a proven scientific approach to the assessment of actual physical damage (e.g., corrosion, electrical surge, contamination, etc.) to electronic and mechanical equipment, to determine if the reported damage symptoms are repairable, unrelated to the event, or indicative of the need for replacement. Upon this determination, EDC will provide Like Kind & Quality (LKQ) cost recommendations based on the features and specifications of the original unit and current market pricing to determine the appropriate Replacement Cost Value (“RCV”) and Actual Cost Value ("ACV") for the property. The LKQ recommendations also extend to the review of service provider invoices for reasonable and customary scope of work, materials and labor costs. These services are conducted either at the Insured’s location or through desk reviews via interviews of the Insured and their service providers.
