Vandalism & Theft
Property crimes can happen at any given moment. They usually tend to occur at residences where it is either not occupied during times throughout the day, or throughout a given time frame. Someone may have a home in Florida, but leave for 6 months to Canada during the hot season in Florida. These are the times that criminals take advantage. You may walk into your home and find that you suffered at the hands of a thief.
Having a coverage for vandalism and theft is very important if you are ever hardly home. These cases require a great amount of attention and professional advice. Insurance companies will want you to settle for less and may not give you what you are due. We are your best ally during this process because we work against insurance companies, not with them! We work to get you everything that is owed to you in regards to your losses.

A group of over a dozen teens broke into a property, threw a party, and caused more than $1 million in damages in Los Angeles, California. They called it a “ghost party” because no one was home. Many of those who attended the party starting looting property from the home. The home owner was able to recover all damages done to him, and some of those teens caught are now paying the price. Not harm ever goes undone.
Questions Normally Asked by Insurance Companies
Was there actually a case of theft/vandalism? Were the items claimed actually owned by the policy holder, and how can it be proven? How much is the item worth? Did your home suffer any property damages such as, broken doors, windows, walls, or other home damages due to the theft/vandalism?
A public adjuster can help you answer of these questions truthfully, but at the same time without saying too much that will cause them to deny your claim. And if denied, the public adjuster can help prove each question because most of it is supported by police reports whom document the real event. You may also have proof with pictures of your home, and even receipts of the items stolen or vandalized.
