Insurance Assessments

As a BDMA technician, I am qualified to assess, report and recommend remedial works for water and fire insurance claims. I have worked with major loss adjusters, (Crawfords, Questgates, BCS, Sedgewick) and insurers (Axa, Zurich, Allianz, NFU, Covea and Admiral) on hundreds of claims, including major loss. For the last seven years, I have consulted with Chemdry Complete Services, working with them on claims and developing an in-house training programme.

We have permission from the CAA for commercial drone operations and carry specialised drone insurance in addition to our regular public liability coverage.

All costs will be discussed and agreed before works commence. Additional expenses such as parking and travel will be added to each invoice. The use of a drone will add a minimum of £245 to the cost.
