Things Consumers Should Know About How Temporary Housing Works With Their Insurance
The first step when dealing with your insurance company is to contact them asap. You may be surprised as to how much they really want to help you through this rough time. Most insurance companies are ready and willing to help. I find where most problems come in is when the details start to come out. Knowing all the details to your insurance policy is not easy to do and it can even make experienced agents eyes cross. This is where we can help. When it comes to temporary housing we know how it works and we advocate for you so that you are able to not have to worry about your housing needs while your permanent residence is rebuilt.
Get to know your adjuster they are paid by the insurance company to limit the amount of money that the claim pays out but at the same time you will find that most adjusters are not out to stick it to you. They understand the trials you are going through and they know the ins and outs more than most anyone. If for some reason you have an adjuster that you just can’t work with ask for a different one. They may resist but most of the time you will be able to get a different adjuster.
Remember through all this keep up good relations with your agent they are your best friend during this. They want you treated well and they do hold lots of sway. The insurance companies realize that agents are their bread and butter and the agents realize that you are their bread and butter. Use this to your advantage and treat your agent nice and they will move heaven and earth for you.
