Travelers Insurance Company Complaint - Unbelievable - Hail Damage
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- We had a hail storm this past year that was bad enough to prompt repairs in the area. After several roofs went up in the neighborhood we called a contractor. He said He saw damage that needed repaired. Our adjuster came out and said our roof was too steep to walk. He was offered all the necessary safety equipment needed to inspect my roof. He said no and that He would have an answer no latter than 3 days. No call from anyone until we called. Apparently an engineer was hired and we were not notified. Travelers will not call you until you call them. They should be called Voice Mail Ins. We even called customer service and they could not get a hold of the adjuster or the supervisor. We finally heard an answer 1 month and 2 weeks later. They seem confused when you ask them what the issue is. There was over a dozen homes inspected, approved, and new roofs installed in my neighborhood in the same time it took them to get an answer. Their whole back bone is that engineer report. They feel that answers everything, yet the report says in our opinion. They decided that we should replace each shingle that was damaged, approx. 10. Minor, but it is damage. There was other damage on screens, caps, and down spouts that was minor and overlooked when discussing fixing all damage. Travelers is well trained in avoiding the issue and avoiding responsibiltiy. Customer service is definitely non existent. My broker tried to get a hold of them and he was bounced around and ended up in a mess of voice mails. I have heard similar things from customers in my neighborhood. One neighbor said it had been over a month as well and that he was going to have to re-measure because he used pencil and it got wet and he could not read his writing. Really! I'm better off switching Insurance co. and waiting for the next storm and get another opinion and inspection. Must be nice to be an adjuster and not inspect damage and make your own conclusion. By the way, the engineer is about $1500 a pop. What do you think he is going to say. Like the contractor said, engineers get paid to say no. UNBELIEVABLE!
