Storm Barbara – Protecting your Business

Storm Barbara – Protecting your Business

Written by Hannah Wells, Claims Handler

The impending Storm Barbara has been the forefront of the news headlines the past few days, with the worst to be over the Christmas weekend. At MIAB we understand that every claim is unique and we work hard to make sure that every claim is handled appropriately.

Notifying of a claim can be daunting whether you are a first time claimant or even if you have made a claim before. That’s why we like to make the claims process as smooth and simple as possible. From notification to the final decision of the claim we are always on hand for guidance and updates.

If you find yourself in the unfortunate position that you need to make claim for storm damage, we have compiled a few things to do to make the process easier:

  • Notify us immediately
  • Make sure the area is safe
  • If safe to do so, mitigate further loss
  • Take photographs of the damage
  • Salvage as much as possible

Most importantly, do not leave it until you have to make a claim to read through your policy wording. We highly recommend you make yourself familiar with what is covered and what isn’t to reduce the possibility of any disappointment when making a claim.

You can count on MIAB to get your claim moving in the right direction straight away. As always, the claims team are happy to answer any questions and our priority is to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. To make a claim, or to ask any questions, please find the relevant contact numbers below:

Stay safe and have a very Merry Christmas.
