There is also a specialist third party handler for all Property Household & Commercial Claims with their own in house loss assessors.
Finally and most importantly CRS Consultants are the first Insurance Broker and Customer in Cheshire of the UK’s only parametric stand alone Flood Insurances Cover. This cover is available for all commercial insurance risks whether in a flood area or not. All claims are guaranteed to be paid out without the need for loss adjusters or unnecessary delays and settlement cheques should be received within 7 days.
This ingenious cover involves the insured deciding what level of water damage would cause damage to their building (minimum 20cm’s in some cases maximum 40cm), choosing a sum insured (minimum £10,000), taking the cover out and having a sensor fitted to the outside of their building. The sensor sends readings several times a day to a monitored station 24 hours a day and if the water level reaches the desired trigger level the claim is triggered. The settlement can be used for anything the insured wants i.e. repairs, cleaning costs, to cover the excess on their main cover or a flood exclusion, or to cover growing crops in a field or a sports field etc.
