Commercial & Consumer

Miscellaneous Equipment Damage/Repair Assessment :

Our professional staff has been involved with claims dealing with a variety of equipment that is unique and can be found in all areas of the commercial business environment. We are prepared to investigate difficult & problem claims at any time.

In many situations after our investigation was completed, the claim for total loss was dropped and the equipment has been repaired at a reasonable cost.

  • Detailed examination & damage assessment
  • Local on-site repair is our first consideration
  • If repair is feasible, a cost estimate is prepared
  • When possible, we determine the cause and probable time/location of loss
  • Reports are prepared realizing that our findings may be presented in a court of law
