SEATTLE, Wash. (Nov. 6, 2012) – In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Safeco Insurance has deployed additional resources to help customers recover from the storm that ravaged a 1,000-mile region of the Eastern United States.
Catastrophe claims specialists are available to assist by telephone and hundreds more, including property experts, have been dispatched to the hardest-hit areas. In addition, special mobile units designed to handle claims for Safeco® home customers are now operating in Freehold, N.J., and Garden City, Long Island, N.Y.
The company also says it will not apply hurricane deductibles to customers’ losses from Sandy. Other home and auto policy deductibles will apply.
When safe to do so, Safeco Insurance® customers should reach out to us with their claims or questions.
