A full report is sent to insurers on uplift with pictures.
When appointed on Goods in Transit losses, timing is of the essences as looting does occur. We as such endeavor to dispatch a team to the accident site where goods will be repacked and delivered as instructed (at a reasonable fee).
We can also uplift, warehouse and secure salvage until agreement has been reached on claims, this is particularly useful where salvage value may reduce is left exposed to the effects of a large loss, such as a fire or water damage. This again generates a better rate of recovery for Insurers.
Should we be unsuccessful in our bid on any stored goods, the goods can be delivered to any site and a nominal cost for transport and storage will be charged.
