Should you require urgent assistance outside of our office hours, we have arranged for a specialist marine loss adjusting company, C Claims to provide an emergency claims helpline. The C Claims helpline will provide help and guidance in order to assist you at the initial stage of a claim.  Thereafter, all advice should be taken from and reference made to us or those parties that we may appoint to assist you.

Understanding the process

  • It’s important you tell us about any events that may lead to a claim under your policy, even if you decide not to go ahead with your claim.
  • As soon as we are told about an incident, we will ask you to provide full details over the phone or complete a claim form. If you haven’t already submitted a form (online or offline), we will send one out to you.
  • As part of the claims process, we will ask for estimates or quotations. These should be sent to us without delay to avoid slowing the process down.
  • We may instruct a surveyor to inspect and/or investigate your claim.
  • Repair instructions should not be given without our prior agreement.
  • When you are satisfied with the repairs, any invoices should be paid by you and the receipts should then be forwarded onto us so that we can reimburse you.
