Insurance Agent Offers Post-Storm Tips for Property Owners

Storm DamageA line of severe storms that ripped through the WKVI listening area Monday night left a path of destruction in their wake. Significant property damage has been reported in several areas. Jim Collins with Collins Insurance Agency in Knox urges owners to document everything and take necessary steps to protect property from further damage. 

He says most insurance agents understand the need to make temporary repairs until contractors are available for more permanent fixes. Patching a leaky roof with a tarp will protect your belongings and save your insurance company money on further damage claims. Collins adds you should also get all estimates for repairs in writing so you can turn them in to your insurance company.
