Hurricane Resources

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.

Due to the natural disasters that occurred in 2011, and the unprecedented amount of claims that were paid, we are beginning to see rates increases from our insurance carriers.  We understand no one enjoys rate increases.  However, for the insurance companies to provide their services, and payout when claims occur, the rates need to be adequate.
