Claim regarding a cracked toilet cistern

A customer contacted us regarding a cracked toilet cistern which had leaked all over the bathroom floor, damaging her flooring and ruining the carpets in her bathroom and hallway.  As soon as the leak was discovered, the customer quickly turned off her main water supply at the stop cock, emptied her toilet system and mopped up the excess water in both the bathroom and hallway. The quick actions of the customer probably saved even more damage to her flooring and more importantly stopped the damage from spreading. When the loss adjuster visited the property, he first assumed that all the flooring would need to be replaced, however due to the customers quick actions, this substantially reduced the amount of damage to the flooring in the bathroom with only a small portion needing replacing. The toilet cistern was also replaced with new carpets in the bathroom and the hallway.

When things like this happen, we make weekly calls to the customer to ensure everything is progressing as it should and on this occasion the customer was delighted with this action.

As soon as we got the final invoice for the work that had been completed everything was paid promptly and the customer was absolutely delighted which is highlighted on the comments below:

“My heartfelt thanks to you for your very efficient and helpful manner in dealing with my recent insurance claim, minimising the stress of the situation. I would like to thank all of the team for their weekly supportive phone calls, the ladies are all so charmingly personable.  Together you are a winning team.  Wishing you all of the continued success in the future.”

Accidental Damage of a TV

A policyholder’s wife, who has dementia, accidentally knocked over a TV whilst moving around in the home.  This took place on a Saturday, and needing a TV straight away, the policyholder went straight out and purchased a new TV.  On the Monday morning the policyholder called to advise us of the claim. We requested receipts and photos from the policyholder of the TV, it was clear from the photos that the TV was beyond economical repair as the screen was cracked and damaged. As the policyholder had not only the receipt for the new TV but also his original receipt for the damaged TV, once these where received the claim was settled immediately, with the money in the policyholders account on the Thursday of the same week the claim was reported, only 4 days from start to finish.

The policyholder was delighted with not only the service but the speed of the claim and commented,

“Superb, Superb, outstanding, thanks you very much. Your customer services is outstanding.”

Claim raised after completed works.

A claim was raised after works had already been completed. The policyholder was relocating the bathroom within the home.  During the renovations the contractor noticed that there was a water leak in the bathroom.  It was coming from the shower seal which looked like it had been leaking for some time.  As the contractors had already started work on the relocation of the bathroom, whilst this was all being done the repairs were completed at the same time.  The policyholder was able to provide photos of the damage and a report from the contractor who carried out the work along with an invoice for the completed work, including a breakdown of the additional costs involved in repairing the damage caused by the leak  The claim came in on the 11th June 2019, with the policyholder providing all the relevant documents 17 days later. The additional costs where quickly approved and the payment was sent the same day to the policyholder who made the following comment:

“Quite honestly the way I’ve been treated over this unfortunate claim couldn’t have been dealt with any better with the lady associate that has dealt with it so I think you’re doing an excellent job I really do thank you. “

Resolving your Claim as Quickly as Possible

Although you probably hope that you will never need to make a claim, your park home insurance is there in case you do. Experiencing a loss and having to deal with a claim can be quite distressing, so we do everything we can to resolve any claims or disputes in a timely and professional way. We try to minimise the inconvenience to you, so when things do go wrong, however big or small, our priority is to resolve your claim as quickly as possible.

At Park Home Assist, we have two dedicated Claims Co-ordinators, Tina Brown and Valerie Kearney, who ensure that your claim is managed throughout and progresses as efficiently as possible. This includes helping you to compile the information and evidence needed for the claim, liaising with loss adjusters and contractors, and keeping you informed.  Tina and Valerie will always go the extra mile to ensure that our customers are satisfied with our service.  This is evident in the feedback we receive from customers who have had to make a claim.  Below are just a few short examples of recent claims made by our customers along with their feedback.

Park Home Insurance Claim due to a Leak in the Roof

A policy holder returned from a three-week holiday to discover a leak in their roof.  Water had leaked through into their lounge area, causing damage not only to the ceiling, walls and floors, but also their carpets and curtains.  Whilst the leak in the roof was not covered, the policy holder had a contractor out to repair the roof straight away.  Because the policy holder had taken out the Accidental Damage cover on their property, the internal damage was covered by their park home insurance.  The contents of the home were removed to safe storage, the policy holder stayed in alternative accommodation while a contractor visited the home and repaired all the damage.  Everything was returned with no issues and we received the following feedback.

“We wish to say a big thank you to everyone involved with the situation.  The work done and the service that everyone gave was brilliant.  Thank you to all.”

Park Home Insurance Claim due to Escape of Water

The policyholder experienced escape of water in the shower room of their park home, causing damage to the floor and walls. Water also leaked out into the hallway causing a lot of additional damage.  All the repair and refurbishment work was completed for the policyholder and he scored the service 10 out of 10. He also confirmed he would recommend Park Home Assist to friends and family.  He stated:

“There is nothing you could have done to make the service any better as it was very efficient right from the moment I made the phone call about the problem.  The loss adjuster came out, the payment was made, the job was done, you were absolutely brilliant.  There is nothing you could do to improve the service as it was all very good.”

Park Home Insurance Claim due to a Burst Pipe

A pipe burst at 5.30 in the morning, causing water to gush everywhere.  The loss adjuster visited the next day and discovered extensive damage to the flooring throughout the home.  We appointed contractors immediately and instructed them to start repairs.  We arranged alternative accommodation at a local hotel, so the policyholder could be comfortable during the eight days it took to repair the home.  The policy holders stated:

“They acted very quickly and made sure everything that had to be done, was done, and I thank everyone sincerely.”

Customer service is at the heart of what we do.  It’s important to our customers, and to us, especially when you need to make a claim. Our award-winning claims service demonstrates our commitment to delivering excellent service when you need us most.
