Storm Claims - Hints

After the Storm comes the Claim - What to do now.

Day-after tips

Here are some day-after tips from CPR Insurance Services when you need to claim on Insurance following a Storm.
 

Take photos.
Document all of the damage, especially of thing you need to dispose of quickly, like wet carpeting or spoiled food.

Make small repairs now.
If you have broken windows or other minor damage, repair it now to prevent further damage to your property.
Major repairs should wait until insurance adjusters have visited your property.
If possible, get a range of quotes before undertaking major repairs. However remember your insurance company may have specific steps it wants you to follow.

Check out your contractor.
In areas with widespread damage, it may not be possible to find a local contractor. If you hire someone from another city or state, ask to see a business license and evidence of liability insurance and record that information.
It is also a good idea to make a note of the contractor's license plate number.
Be very wary of contractors who demand payment upfront or pressure you to make a decision right away.

Lodge your insurance claim as soon as possible. After a large disaster, it can take longer than normal for your claim to be processed. Starting early helps ensure timely payment as insurers very much deal with claims in chronological order first and then ease of the claim next. So if you provide all the information the insurers need including properly completed claim forms, quotes for repairs, photos of damage and accounts or invoices for partial emergency repairs, it is likely your claim will be paid sooner rather than later.
