ICS Loss Assessor Helps Retail Outlet in Dublin with a Flood Damage Claim

flooded gun showroom

Flood Damage | Courtlough Shooting Grounds, Gun Showroom and Outdoor clothing retailers suffered severe flood damage caused by a heavy rainfall. The entire retail store and gun showroom had been severely damaged. The flooding even caused damages to the outdoor Olympic clay pigeon traps and electrical systems located on the shooting range.

We came into our business at 3.00am on the morning and our whole world crashed around us.

We have never had to cope with anything of this magnitude before and we were left paralysed. You do not plan for these things and you do not know what to do, or what not to do “ said Mr. Flynn

ICS Loss Assessor appointed to manage the flood damage claim

flooded gun showroomInsurance Claim Solutions Loss Assessor – Trevor Kelly, immediately put in place a disaster management plan. As with any business, in order to keep it afloat and to retain the customers,  it is vital to get the business trading again as soon as possible.

Insurance Claim Solutions attended the site and advised the owner to remove all of the retail clothing stock and accessories from the flood damaged showroom to the first floor store room to mitigate their loss and to prevent any further damage to stock.

We advised that controlled drying should take place of the clothing to prevent any further deterioration. This is a normal part of any flood restoration process.

Trevor came in, calmed us down and gave us clear advice and directions. He really knew the exact steps to take and immediately put plans into action. We initially didn’t know what to make of him as he seemed so calm and collected – said Mr. Flynn.

The next issue that we encountered was a vast quantity of firearms. Over 200 (rifles and shotguns) were located in the flooded gun showroom and needed immediate attention. Ideally they needed to be relocated.

We advised Trevor that it would be difficult to get permission to move these off site. He said – no problem we will apply drying and thermal control techniques in another area on-site. This avoided us seeking a permit to move the fire arms”  – explained Mr. Flynn

The immediate action of controlling the humidity of the metals saved the majority of the firearms and saved any further deterioration. We identified an area which we could dry quickly and maintain the humidity and temperature to avoid any further losses.

 

Flood Damage – Specialist Advice 

Insurance Claim Solutions employed specialist disaster management contractors. They allowed the firearms be stored in a safe locked area on-site whilst we employed specialist drying and humidity management to prevent any further damage to the firearms.

Insurance Claim Solutions met with Courtlough’s insurer representatives and agreed scope and extent of works. Insurance Claim Solutions secured an interim payment this allowed Mr. Flynn with a clear plan to initiate stripping out works immediately.

We were moving so quickly and Trevor was driving on the works. He insisted that we carry out the works immediately once he received an approval. We were glad we could employ our contractors straight away” said Mr. Flynn

Insurance Claim Solutions appointed reliable specialist contractors to carry out controlled drying. This allowed the business owners to get the rebuilding works carried out immediately and to mitigate the amount of business that they had lost.

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!
