The Preferred Water Restoration Company
Wednesday, October 21, 2015
As it states several times in several places on our website, Joe Taylor Restoration has distinguished itself as the preferred water restoration company for over 45 insurance carriers in the South Florida market, including industry leaders such as Federated National and Frontline. (We are also the preferred fire, mold, and biohazard vendor. However, for simplicity’s sake and for the purpose of this blog, we will focus on water.) But what does this statement mean exactly?
Let’s start with the basics:
An insurance carrier is the company that issues and supports the policy that the property owner purchases. It is the “parent” company that holds the risk associated with an insurance policy.
Joe Taylor Restoration upholds preferred water restoration vendor status with over 45 of these carriers. Meaning, if a property owner has a water leak, flood, or the like and they call their insurance carrier, the carrier will send out Joe Taylor Restoration to take care of the situation if it is in one of our coverage areas. (We provide unmatched service on Florida’s East and West Coasts in the following counties: St. Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Hendry, Glades and De Soto.)
However, there is another layer to the statement. Most likely when you, the property owner, were seeking insurance for your property, you spoke with an agent at an insurance agency.
An insurance agency is an office that has an established agreement (ie. gained appointments) with one, a few, or many insurance carriers and sells insurance policies on behalf of those carriers. And insurance agents are state-licensed professionals who sell and service policies on behalf of the carrier(s) with which they are appointed.
Joe Taylor Restoration has been tasked by the insurance carriers to let their agents know that we are their preferred water restoration company. Meaning, that if a property owner has a water leak or the like and they call their local insurance agent, the agent will refer Joe Taylor Restoration to take care of the situation if it is in one of our coverage areas. The agents trust us because the carriers do. And for good reason.
As stated in a previous blog post, Water Restoration Companies- Trustworthy vs Untrustworthy, Joe Taylor Restoration is often called upon to provide our partnering carriers with comparative estimates. In a recent comparative estimate, Joe Taylor Restoration surveyed a water job and approximated the cost to be around $2,200- a standard water loss. The water restoration company in question had charged the insurance carrier more than $14,000 for unnecessary equipment, labor, and time for the same loss!
