The presentation of a theft claim to your insurers can be time consuming and complex. Not only is the emotional impact difficult to deal with, but a theft claim can reveal inadequacies of your contents cover after you have presented the claim to your insurer.
There may also be endorsements or clauses which invalidate your insurance if not complied with. Consulting with a loss assessor will help you avoid these pitfalls and make a successful claim.
Why should you ask for help with a theft claim?
It is not always easy to claim back the full value of what is owed to you after a theft. Many insurers want full proof of ownership of the stolen items and will often compare your initial Police list to the one given to them, querying any additions.
It is now common practice for insurance companies to replace items via their suppliers even if it is not where you bought the item. They will also apply discounts they might obtain through volume purchasing with their suppliers should you want to go to a local shop or outlet.
It is important to make sure your claim is correct from the outset. Consulting with a loss assessor will help you understand where your claim may fall through, and how to best submit a claim that will enable you to receive your full entitlement.
