If you were in the claims business in 2017, you had a front row seat to a wild ride. The season was fast and furious with lots of twists and turns. In less than 30 days, the US was hit with 3 major hurricanes over thousands of miles. The insurance industry was running on all cylinders and Provencher & Company, LLC was no exception.
There were logistical challenges due to the large geographical area and staffing challenges due to the incredible demand during the intense weeks of August and September of 2017.
As the claims settled, the industry as a whole was looking at ways to avoid repeating the chaos and challenges of the 2017 Hurricane Season. At Provencher & Company, LLC we took action and made improvements to ensure a smooth 2018 Hurricane Season.
If you have any questions about our services, coverage areas or would like to discuss a Hurricane Assessment with us, please contact Kelly Cressy at email@example.com or Jim Abbott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
