The impact of the Townsville floods – five weeks on
Five weeks since the devastating downpours hit the north Queensland city of Townsville which was classified a catastrophe, the damage has reached $1.02 billion in loss to date.
Claim Central’s Catastrophe team led by Wade Eilersen, swiftly mobilised to the affected regions the day after the floods hit and assessed claims immediately. This was due to their robust plans for managing sizeable events and catastrophes enabling them to act promptly, and leveraging their long-standing relationships with local trade partners.
With the team receiving a large influx of claims in a short period, they managed the claims end-to-end through Claim Central’s digital claims technology and digital repair fulfilment process, as well as the more traditional loss adjusting services.
Some of the feedback the team received from customers who were affected by the catastrophe has been positive, speaking of the simplicity of the technology they used during the claim process, and empathy of our staff.
One of our customer’s said:
“I was able to look after my baby and sign the contracts through my phone – if I didn’t have this I would have had to run to a printer, printed the documents, signed and sent them back. It would have taken me a while to get these back. This is a great idea.”
Another customer who commented on our service said:
“Claim Central have been so kind – you have no idea what it means to us.”
