Hurricane Resources

By: Lisa Parry Becker October 26, 2012

We spent today calling our flood customers, making arrangements with tree removal companies, clean up crews, contractors, printing client lists, and preparing to be without power next week. (We would be delighted if all of our preparations today were for naught.)

We were advised by our insurance carriers that Hurricane Sandy has the potential to cause extensive commercial power and transport disruptions through at least October 31.  Harleysville Insurance has provided the attached documentation to assist with hurricane preparedness.

Our agency is here to assist you with the claim process if you are in need of assistance.  Please call our claims cell at 267-981-4981, or call the office at 215-579-7310 and press 1 for after hours service and a call back.  Keep your cell phones charged and ready to take pictures of any damages you may experience.

During Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee last year, texting and emailing photos enabled our various claims departments to understand the damages our clients had incurred.

Cell Phones Enhance Claim Reporting

By: Lisa Parry Becker July 24, 2012

Years ago, my brother and business partner, Ryan Parry, had a vision of insurance claims being reported to us from the scene of an accident.  Last week, our client was involved in a minor fender bender.  At the scene of the accident, she used her iPhone and captured the other driver’s insurance auto identification card and driver’s license number.  She took an iPhone photo of the damage to her vehicle.  These photos were subsequently emailed to me after we spoke about the incident.  With these photos, I was able to assess her damage and get in contact with the driver of the other vehicle.  We opened an auto insurance claim with the insurance company and the insurance process is underway.  When the adjuster was assigned, we were able to email him these details and give him a head start on the adjusting process.  By far, this was the most extensive technological reporting of a claim I have had to date.

Who Needs an Umbrella?

By: Lisa Parry Becker December 22, 2011

We all do.  In the event of a fatal crash, a personal or commercial umbrella policy will help assist you with much needed asset protection. Keep in mind, an insurance companies’ duty to defend stops when you have exhausted your underlying liability limits.  Umbrella liability policies are available in one, two, three, four, five million limits and more.

According to a recent survey conducted by AAA, the average payout in a fatal automobile accident doubled between 2005 to 2009 from $3.24 million to $6 million.
