Free Independent Loss Adjusters
We work with a an independent loss adjusting company that work on behalf of the public instead of your insurance provider. The main advantage of this is an independent loss adjuster can act on YOUR behalf instead of your insurance company. This way they can negotiate directly with your insurance provider to ensure that you receive the full amount you are entitled to.
One of the main advantages of using the loss adjusters that we recommend is that they mainly specialise in assessing this kind of damage so they are able to discover all primary and secondary damage in the first instance. Any secondary damage that is not initially identified could have a unfavourable impact on your insurance pay out as it could be discovered too late, you may not be able to make a second claim once the insurance company has already settled. We offer free loss adjusting to all our insured clients as standard.

Flood Damage Repair
In recent years flooding in the UK has become more frequent. With more homes damaged by floods, Independent Contractor Network have had to increase the number of flood restoration contractors in order to cover demand. We can help regardless of whether your home or business has been damaged by a water leak or flooding.
Before any reinstatement work can be carried out our Sussex flood restoration specialists will ensure that any remaining water within the structure of your building will be removed first. Secondary damage must be identified because water might find its way into concealed parts of your property such as wall cavities and floorboards.
If secondary water damage is not identified and dealt with in the first instance it can cause problems at a later date after the visible damage has been repaired. Whilst there is water or moisture within the structure of your home, bacteria and dampness can spread. This has the potential to become a health risk to any occupants of the property so it must be treated immediately. We use the latest drying equipment and infra-red water detection equipment to ensure that your building is completely dried out prior to starting the process of restoring your property.
