With Isaias nearing landfall, FL Best Public Adjusters would like to take a brief overview of what needs to be done to protect yourself and to protect your assets.
Have a Plan
Hurricanes are the epitome of unpredictability. Several times over have weather stations reported a level of severity of a hurricane that changes the day before landfall. You may hear people claim it is highly unlikely we will get hit or that the storm will weaken upon making landfall because that is usually what happens. What if it does? Always prepare for the worst in all regards.
- Preparing a thorough home inventory
- Documenting your property with photos inside and out
- Rounding up any receipts you possess for large items you have to validate their costs
- Stock up on appropriate supplies
- Plan an evacuation route
For more information on these necessary tasks to be done, read our Hurricane Preparation Guide!
Understand Your Insurance Policy
One of the most unfortunate things we have seen as public adjusters are people who have been affected by a storm, only to find that their coverage is not what they initially thought it was. Additionally, understanding your insurance company’s policies beforehand is crucial because it will help you gauge whether you are being shorted in the event that you do incur damage, make an insurance claim, and receive a subpar settlement. We highly recommend you contact us before speaking to your insurance agency for your best chances at receiving the highest settlement possible.
Get In Contact With a Qualified Public Adjuster
Hurricanes and storms are a fact of life in Florida. Being in touch with a public adjuster whom you can trust is important as you never know when you’ll need to make a claim. When you have suffered property damage taking the swiftest course of action is best. Our adjusters can file a claim with your insurance company within 24 hours of us being contacted. Within one week, we can schedule an inspection with the insurance company adjuster to review your loss. Naturally, one of our adjusters will be in attendance as well.
As Isaias approaches, keep our number on file so that you can beat the typical deluge of calls that both us and insurance companies receive after a storm hits. Getting your claim in as early as possible means getting your settlement and your property back to normal as quickly as possible as well should you incur damage from the storm.
Contact us at (800)-952-7693. From everyone on the Florida Best Public Adjusters team, we offer our thoughts and prayers that you and yours make it through the storm safely.
