It was wonderful because of my membership I didn't have to worry about coming up with my deductible. Deductible Shield was able to help me with that and take care of everything for me.
Atlanta, GA (Vocus) October 5, 2010
Deductible Shield, Inc. announced today how an Atlanta, GA family member saved $1,000 on her insurance deductible through her deductible membership when the sewer backed up into her home causing extensive damage. The deductible program is a revolutionary new service program that protects homeowners and renters from paying their homeowner’s insurance deductible.
During the relentless rains, Monique Dwyer encountered a horrible experience when the sewer drain backed up causing extensive water damage and sewage damage to her lower level in her home in Atlanta, GA. The backed-up drain pipe caused more than 3 ½ feet of sewage to come up into her home. The nanny’s quarters, the home gym, and the complete home theatre were drenched (and ruined) in the mess. Even though Ms. Dwyer had a disaster on her hands that required immediate help because of the stench and the extent of the damage, she was comforted by the thought that she didn’t have to pay her deductible. Monique Dwyer explains, “It was wonderful because of my membership I didn’t have to worry about coming up with my deductible. Deductible Shield was able to help me with that and take care of everything for me.” Not only that but “it took a lot of the stress off me that obviously I already had with trying to get my basement back together,” adds Ms. Dwyer. The sewer drain back-up was indeed a catastrophe within her home, but knowing she didn’t have to spend $1,000 on her deductible helped ease the pain.
This unparalleled new program provides protection for homeowners and renters when an unplanned event occurs to their property. Deductible Shield provides financial relief by covering their deductible when a member needs to file an insurance claim against their insurance policy. With this unique program, members are able to save several hundreds of dollars up to $1,000. “A crisis to the home should not create a financial crisis for the owner or renter, that’s why we created Deductible Shield”, explains Company spokesperson Jena Taylor. Deductible Shield also provides stress relief through a network of prescreened reputable contractors to help them repair and restore their property.
Never before has a program existed that protects consumers from paying their property insurance deductibles. “Deductible Shield is the first company to offer this type of service and we’re excited to provide financial relief to members in addition to comfort and peace of mind during emergency situations,” adds Jena Taylor. “With Deductible Shield, I had no worries. The membership with them helped me concentrate on what I needed to concentrate on, which was getting my basement back and trying to get everything ready for the kids. But now my basement’s wonderful and the kids are downstairs playing again,” adds Ms. Dwyer.
Deductible Shield is not insurance. Rather the Deductible Shield program offers protection to members from the most common incidents or losses insurance company policies cover. Some of the services Deductible Shield covers include water damage, smoke damage, fire damage, wind damage, damage to structures caused by falling trees among others. When members incur a loss to their property, they won’t have to pay their deductible so long as their insurance company considers the loss a valid claim and the loss falls within the covered services Deductible Shield offers. The exclusive low-cost membership program also provides a network of prescreened, reputable experts to repair and restore their property after a loss occurs. Deductible Shield offers this one-of-a-kind protection across the nation excluding Hawaii, Alaska, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida.
With the Deductible Shield program, a member pays a nominal annual fee for a fraction of their deductible amount. “When an incident occurs, the member doesn’t have to fret over how to pay the deductible,” states the founder of the company. Deductible Shield takes it a step further by aligning with a network of reliable experts that restore the member’s property. This way, the member doesn’t have to worry about finding a reputable contractor. This new service program offers a way for homeowners and renters to save money, reduce stress and panic in times of distress and crisis, and provide peace of mind knowing that Deductible Shield has them covered.
