When it comes to filing an insurance claim for property damage, having a licensed public adjuster on your side can make all the difference. The National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) has an online directory of public appraisers, although membership does not guarantee that someone is qualified or licensed. It's important to do your research and find a reputable public adjuster who can help you navigate the claims process. At AllCity, we only use the industry's leading estimation software and our certified public appraisers are experienced in managing claims.
We understand that many people have been affected by a major tragedy and are looking for an “Illinois public appraiser” near them. That's why we take the time to photograph and record each room to ensure a full review of the evidence. We also help you determine the limits of your policy, analyze your endorsements, and understand the limits on the value of repairs and replacement costs. When searching for a public adjuster, it's important to avoid anyone who tries to rush you into making a decision. You should also talk to previous clients to get an understanding of how easy it will be to work with the public appraiser and how successful they have been in managing previous claims.
Additionally, you can check local public adjustment associations for online directories that can confirm membership.
