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.

From my first phone conversation with Trevor I felt very confident that I had chosen the right person to help us negotiate through the minefield that is making a claim through your home insurer. Trevor's colleague Craig visited our home and was very sympathetic to our situation after a burst mains pipe. He explained everything he was doing and then dealt with the loss adjustor from our insurance company reducing our stress. We were kept informed during the entire process and even though we were dealt a bit of a curve ball, Trevor negotiated the best result for us and we can't reccomend ICS enough. It was the best decision we could make. As an add-on we would urge anybody reading this review to look at and review your home insurance and protect yourself against underinsurance. Thank you Trevor & Craig

I can’t recommend Trevor highly enough. After a house fire in Jan 2022, we had no idea what to do next. Thankfully, Trevor was recommended to us, and despite it being a bank holiday, he called to the house and provided all the reassurance we needed at a difficult time. Trevor is exceptionally professional, took care of all the paperwork, navigated through the tricky process with the Insurance company and kept us updated every step of the way. 5* service.

Trevor came in after we'd already started the claim and realised it was a much bigger issue than we'd originally thought. He stepped in seamlessly and quickly and took over everything, which made our lives far easier. He kept open communication every step of the way and ensured that the whole process went smoothly for us. Would absolutely recommend Insurance claim solutions to anyone.

It was such a relief to hand over all details of the insurance claim to Trevor when I had a recent mains leak in my house. He more than lived up to the recommendations I had received about his work, efficient, professional, inspiring confidence that all was being dealt with correctly. Within a remarkably short time he had dealt with all details of claim and I’m very happy with what he achieved for me in terms of a settlement. Can highly recommend him!
