People Helping People, This Is What An Independent Agent Is All About.
Posted by Donald J. Medeiros Insurance Agency on
In the last year, Mother Nature has been pummeling the United States with the most extreme weather patterns of flooding, earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes, causing major catastrophes in her wake. Disaster sites are littered with the devastation along with emergency vehicles and emergency response vans providing assistance and comfort to the victims and their families.
Among the Red Cross vans, victims could also be seen at insurance disaster response buses as well. These mobile disaster buses are state-of-the-art customer service centers that house satellite communication equipment and computers that are equipped to process insurance claims immediately and onsite. These insurance teams are not only trained to assist the victims with their claims process, but are also there to hand out water bottles, blankets, food and toys for both customers and non-customers alike. The victims are able to use the satellite phones or the computers to go online as means to contact their family members.
These are one of the many ways that separate the good insurance companies from the rest. It’s taking the extra mile to service a customer, the neighbor and the community. It’s not about promoting a discounted price or the cheapest price for insurance, for the lives that they are covering cannot be discounted, they are valued. This is value at its best; there is no price you could find that can match it.
The staff at Donald J. Medeiros Insurance Agency would like to extend to all the family and friends of the victims of the last week’s tornado tragedy our heartfelt prayers and condolences. If you would like contribute to the tornado relief efforts for the victims, the following link to msnbc.com has numerous organizations that are involved.
