Public Adjusters for Commercial Winter Storm Damage
To maximize your recovery, it’s important to properly document the various kinds of winter storm damage to your property, and to know what your commercial insurance policy covers.
Your commercial property can experience a range of winter storm damage. Heavy snow can cause a roof collapse. Pipes can freeze and burst, causing water damage and possibly mold. Even space heaters incorrectly connected and positioned in the office can spark fire damage. If the unexpected happens, your insurance company’s team will have their own interpretation about the extent of the property damage and what is covered in your commercial insurance policy. Shouldn’t you have an expert on your side representing only your interests?
Our professional public adjusters are there to lift that burden from beginning to end in your insurance claim process. We work only for you, not the insurance company. We level the playing field with our unmatched expertise and resources in evaluating, documenting, and negotiating your insurance claim for the maximum amount so you can get back to business sooner.

In the spring of 2013, the Village of Watkins Glen and Schuyler County suffered a devastating fire to its new, 15,000-square-foot Shared Services Building. This services facility was the headquarters or central location of key departments for the county’s and village’s operations. The Adjusters International Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro public adjusting team was chosen to manage the county’s and village’s property damage insurance claims while ensuring that public services continued unhindered. After initial offers from both insurance carriers at much lower levels, AI/BLC was able to negotiate and secure a total recovery amount of $3.2 million dollars.
