Balcombes have been trading in Ireland since 1971. There’s a lot of expertise gained over those years that is put at the disposal of the home or business owner who has suffered damage to their property and need to make a claim.
Balcombes Claims Management represents the interests of the policyholder in the insurance claim process and negotiates on the behalf of the insured for the best possible settlement under the insurance policy. Insurance Companies appoint Loss Adjusters to represent their interests. Our role is “Protecting the Policyholder’s Position” which is our moto.
In the 40+ years in business we have helped thousands of policyholders, both residential and commercial. The most common type of claims are Fire, Flood and Water damage claims.
People contact us when, after suffering a property loss. They find themselves overwhelmed or intimidated by the insurance company’s loss adjuster and by the claim process. They may not understand their rights or responsibilities under the policy, may not agree with the settlement proposals put forth by the insurance company’s loss adjuster, or may feel shortchanged by the settlement offered. Documenting and filing a property loss claim can be a laborious and difficult process. When working with a company like Balcombes, we do all the hard work, from documenting and assessing the losses, to filing the claim and negotiating with the insurer on our client’s behalf.
Jim Flannery, Managing Director, joined Balcombes in 1999 after working in the industry and realizing the difficulty faced by policyholders when it came to submitting a claim. “They didn’t know what they were entitled to or what paperwork was needed. They were not familiar with the process or with the small print in the policy booklet. Jim realised the tremendous value and peace of mind a public loss assessor can offer to policyholders after a property loss. The industry has become more crowded since, but Balcombes Claims Management stands out from the crowd as one of the most well know and reputable public loss assessing company in Ireland.
We have successfully settled thousands of property loss claims, including multi-million Euro residential and commercial loss claims. A lot has changed during this time, but the things that continue to make us successful have stayed the same: honesty, professionalism, complete dedication to each and every customer and always delivering on our promises. Most policyholders are not even aware of the services provided by public adjusters. They end up contacting Balcombes in moments of profound crisis, when their lives have been turned upside down, or when they feel intimidated and fearful of being cheated out of a fair settlement. We make it our mission to use our industry knowledge and resources to ensure the best possible outcome for each and every property loss claim.
Balcombes Claims Management are regulated by The Central Bank of Ireland under the Insurance Mediation Directive to handle all types of Property and Business Interruption losses.
