Fire Damage Claim | A traumatic event like fire or any other large loss to your property, frequently impairs your ability to make important decisions. Policy owners in their attempt to get their life back on track as quickly as possible, settle for a quick loss assessment and settlement, often to their detriment.

The full extend of suffered losses often surfaces long after their insurance claim is paid out and they have to finance the remaining repairs out of their own pocket. It is therefore prudent in times like this to employ a professional loss assessor who is not driven by emotions and can fight for the best settlement on your behalf.

Fire damage devastates joinery business in North Dublin

Fire damage claim - Joinery in Dublin North | Insurance Claim SolutionsJoinery Fire 3Joinery Fire 4Joinery Fire 1ICS received a call from a distressed business owner, his joinery works had suffered extensive damage following a fire.

Our client is a leading manufacturer of bespoke joinery for the specialist construction market, they manufacture doors, windows, stairs gates etc.

The fire was discovered when a passer by noticed smoke bellowing from the roof and notified our client.  The fire service were called and attended with 4 units. They used water extensively to help extinguish the fire.

The business owner attended the site and found a scene of devastation, he had built up his business for over 30 years and now feared that this event would ruin it. His high end valuable specialist wood working machinery and raw materials were extensively damaged by fire. They also suffered secondary smoke and water damage.

 

ICS Loss Assessor appointed to manage the claim

ICS loss assessor conducted a full on site survey within 1 hr of receiving a call. We photographed the site extensively, measured up the unit and compiled a detailed inventory of damaged stock and equipment. We then liaised with engineering experts and specialist suppliers and found that the majority the machinery and stock had been either fire damaged, water damaged or both.

ICS met with the insurance companies loss adjusters the next afternoon and we discussed the loss in detail. The damage to the equipment effectively meant that our client was now out of business temporarily until he could purchase new equipment and find new premises , the duration of reinstatement and claim administration had to be kept to a minimum as our client had a number of large projects on the books for delivery. 

ICS put in place an extensive claims management plan within 24 hours  and assisted our client in appointing specialist engineers and professionals to assess and quantify the loss to the specialist wood working equipment. ICS compiled, presented and negotiated the loss with the loss adjusters and worked very hard to secure a settlement that was acceptable to our clients within the tight time frame.

ICS Claim management outcome

Fire claims of this magnitude usually take a long time to assess and settle. This frequently causes the business to close down as the clients go elsewhere. The business owner found out that by using ICS, they had less production downtime, less stress, and received a much quicker and more favourable settlement.

By handing the claim proactively and efficiently, ICS saved the insured’s livelihood and prevented their business from closing down.

Trevor was recommended to us only 4 weeks ago. We had a leak in kitchen which we thought would need just a new floor. Trevor came in and from that moment onwards we were in safe hands, far more damage than we ever thought thanks to Trevor, he did all the work with our insurance company, no hassles at all. If you have something happen at home and are thinking of using your insurance look no further than Trevor. His knowledge his second to none, best decision we have made in years. 5 stars isn't enough.ThanksNigel and Mags

I am delighted to recommend Insurance Claim Solutions to anyone facing a need to submit a home insurance claim. We had a significant escape of water from our attic tank while we were away, and came home to quite a smelly mess and water damage. We contacted Insurance Claim Solutions and really appreciated Trevor Kelly's attention to detail, and his professionalism. Trevor is a really good communicator and he is friendly, he took away all of the hassle and bureacracy for us; and as an industry expert he was thorough in preparing our claim and negotiating on our behalf. We handed everything over to Trevor and had no regrets; now that the claim has been settled, we could not be more satisfied. Thank you Trevor.

I recently worked with Trevor on a housing claim that required experienced support from a top quality professional. Trevor certainly is a high quality professional who provided great support. Trevor is a great communicator and was extremely good at keeping me up to date on how the process was progressing. He kept me reassured that the issue had his focus and commitment at all times. I would highly recommend Trevor.
