Springfield, MO (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
American National Property And Casualty Company (ANPAC®) has sent out claims teams to assist policyholders in the states affected by Superstorm Sandy.
ANPAC encourages those who incur property damage from Superstorm 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.
Cleanup efforts are already underway in many states affected by Superstorm Sandy. ANPAC wants to remind those involved with storm cleanup to exercise caution. Storm debris can create perils and hazards that may not be readily evident. Visit http://www.anpac.com/cleanup for information about safe and effective cleanup strategies.
Policyholders who need to report a 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. Policyholders are urged to report Superstorm Sandy claims immediately – no matter how minor they may appear. Eligibility for federal disaster assistance from FEMA, if available, can be affected by whether or not a claim has been submitted to an insurer.
ANPAC’s website offers several storm resources that may be useful to policyholders dealing with the effects of Superstorm Sandy. Information specifically related to hurricanes and tropical storms can be found at http://www.anpac.com/hurricanes, and resources about winter weather preparedness and recovery are available at http://www.anpac.com/winter.
