Hurricane Irma: Important Information

Now that Hurricane Irma has moved passed our immediate area, we want to remind you that Atlas is ready to serve you. The following will be helpful as you take inventory of any damage due to the hurricane.

  • * Most importantly, remain safe and do not take any unnecessary risks.
  • * Review Coverage limits and deductibles.
  • * Have policy number(s) available.
  • * Make note of time & date of incident and assess damages.
  • * Make temporary repairs as necessary to protect your property from additional loss and keep detailed receipts.
  • * Take photos of any damage before any temporary repairs are undertaken and later provide them to the claims adjuster.
  • * Report claims as soon as safely possible using one of the methods listed below.
  • * Obtain written estimates from only licensed and insured contractors for permanent repairs which include details of the scope and cost of the work. Provide the estimates to the claims adjuster.
  • * Do not sign any contracts or documents for any permanent repairs or begin work without first communicating with the claims adjuster. Be especially wary of “Assignment of Benefits” forms that many contractors and restoration companies use. 

Atlas Insurance will be staffed and working immediately once the storm passes and the authorities have deemed it safe to return.
