SPRINGFIELD, MO (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
American National Property And Casualty Company (ANPAC®) has claims teams ready to assist policyholders where Hurricane Sandy is expected to create widespread power outages, extensive flooding, heavy snowfall and high winds.
Policyholders who have evacuated may have coverage for temporary living expenses. Evacuees are encouraged to call the ANPAC 24-hour claims hotline at 1.800.333.2860, or their local agent, for specific details about individual policy coverages. All expense receipts should be retained so that they can be included in claim reports.
ANPAC encourages those who incur property damage from Hurricane Sandy to take the necessary steps to prevent further damage only if it is safe to do so. Unless immediate action is needed to prevent further damage, it is requested that policyholders wait to complete repairs until an inspection of the property can be completed. If emergency repairs are made, the damage should be documented prior to the repair. All receipts related to repairs should be saved so they can be included in claim reports.
For vehicle damage claims, appraisers will be available to assist with vehicle inspections. For those policyholders who need repairs, ANPAC offers a directory of recommended Car Care Repair (CCR) facilities. ANPAC claims representatives are able to help policyholders find a nearby Car Care Repair facility and then notify the shop to be expecting the damaged vehicle. All work at participating repair facilities is guaranteed by ANPAC’s Lifetime Service Guarantee. Further information, including local shop locations, can be found at http://www.anpac.com in the “Claims” section.
Policyholders who need to report a damage claim can contact the ANPAC 24-hour claims hotline at 1.800.333.2860. Claims can also be reported from a computer or mobile device at http://www.anpac.com.
