Kitchen Fire Damage Claim in County Meath - Insurance CLaim SolutionsFire Damage Claim | ICS received a call from an extremely distressed property owner asking for help with her fire damage claim. She had her solid wood, bespoke kitchen unit destroyed by fire. The rest of the kitchen was also heavily soot stained and smoke damaged.

The insurance loss adjuster sent by her insurance company offered to pay for the replacement of the damaged section of the kitchen, and suggested that she tries to clean the rest.  The home owner was taken aback and horrified with the proposed settlement. Her kitchen was her pride and joy and the centrepiece of her home. It was expensive, bespoke and it would be therefore difficult to match the old with the new.

ICS were appointed soon after the loss adjusters visit to professionally manage her insurance claim. Her aunt, who had used the services of ICS a few years ago, gave her our name.

Fire Damage Claim – Insurance Claim Solutions negotiates full compensation

Insurance Claim Solutions Loss Assessor visited the site within 4 hrs from receiving the call. We found out that not only was the kitchen heavily smoke damaged, we also found smoke deposits in adjoining rooms that would require specialist cleaning and redecoration.

The staining and discolouration to the kitchen would be impossible to remedy by cleaning and treatment. The naked timber would be permanently stained and there was a high risk of smoke odour re-occurrence. After considerable resistance and discussions, the Loss Adjuster agreed with full kitchen replacement. ICS also argued successfully for the professional cleaning and redecoration of adjoining rooms and replacement of the furniture .

Conclusion

Had the policyholder not had a professional help in managing her claim, she may have spent years looking at a discoloured,  smelly kitchen that she would have hated spending time in.

The result was certainly worth a small commission we charged to assess the damage and deal with the claim.

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!
