Very Satisfied With Experience
Posted by on
Like many people, I carry insurance for the obvious reasons and never have a real reason to utilize it. I've had Nationwide as my home owners carrier for a few years now and chose them initially because of an outstanding rate. To make a long story short, we had a pipe in the wall leading to a shower on the upper floor develop a crack in an elbow. The damage was significant, about 30k. I hired a Public adjuster and Nationwide's rep work very close and very expeditiously with him. The company sent us a check within a week for the entire amount we felt was fair and needed to repair all damages to original condition. This also included replacement of some items with no hassle from them.

I also want to stress my recommendation to anyone of bringing in a Public Adjuster in high end claims cases. I'm not saying Nationwide wouldn't have handled it the same without him, but in cases like this with so much on the line, I was glad I did not try and handle this myself without expert representation.

Thanks for the info slim. It's good to know this info for those of us, like you, who rarely have to utilize our insurance.

So what your really saying is Nationwide is on your side. It's good to know that there are some out there that stand behind their word. Glad it all worked out for you, how much money you got left over and when is the party? (VH)

Good review

Slim we were told to do the same thing in the event of a high priced amount of damage. VH

Good to hear it all went your way. Have never used Nationwide Insurance but if things ever change I'll give them a call. Thanks.

I'm sure people have had problems too with claims with NW out there, but I have to say in my case, they deserve to get a thumbs up. I really even more, want to convey how I think getting an adjuster on your side is vital. I had a Viper a few years ago an older lady took out. (BTW, she was born before the Titanic). I lost on that car and this guy, come to find out, could very well have made a difference there too. Got a big claim, get an adjuster. Odds are he/she will even make up their fee back.

Since they are pulling out of Florida

FLORIDA -- Since they are just up and leaving, I feel everyone, especially those in Florida, should boycott all their golfing events in which they are a sponsor.

Either by parents or I have been making insurance payments since 1952. Since 1969, there was two houses.

We have never even claimed a hurricane damage claim, and only one claim when a house water pipe broke (of course we were not home).

So now they say, the heck with ya and leave. So we should all do the same to their golf events. And find another insurance for your cars.

They probably didn't expect to actually pay back any of that money they'd been collecting for years. Now with another season of hurricanes on the way, they are out the door while their pockets are still full.

Nationwide sucks period. I wouldn't let them insure my bicycle!
Doc J on 05/24/2006:
Sparticus is probably right. Look at the news coming out of New Orleans about how the insurance companies are dodging claims there, despite record profits. The insurance industry is one of the heavies in lobbying...don't look for legislative help. Dealing with insurance companies is akin to playing blackjack at a table where the dealer stacks the deck, and continually expecting to win.
