People’s Trust Insurance Claims – Our Rapid Response Team is Ready

RRTClaimsAre you confident that your home will be properly cared for in the event of a loss? 

People’s Trust Insurance policyholders have peace of mind knowing that the Rapid Response Team will be there when they need to get their homes back to normal fast in the event of a covered claim.

What are the most common claims filed by Florida homeowners, and what makes the Rapid Response Team better prepared than any other general contracting company?

Water Damage

Whether caused by clogs, undue water pressure, water pressure spikes or frozen water, burst pipes are one of the leading claims filed by Florida homeowners. Excessive water force may cause pipes to swell and eventually break, sending gushing water everywhere and damaging floors, carpeting, drywall and insulation.

Fire Damage

From cooking equipment left unattended to faulty electrical appliances, a small ember or spark can quickly ignite into a raging fire, putting your family and your home in harm’s way. According to the National Fire Protection Association, home fires cause an average of 13,000 injuries and $7.2 billion in direct property damage every year. 

Wind and Hail Damage

Despite being known as the Sunshine State, Florida experiences its fair share of stormy weather. Unfortunately, these everyday storms sometimes produce more than just heavy rain. Heavy winds, flying debris and hail can cause significant damage to homes, especially windows and roofs.

Our Rapid Response Team is Ready

A Florida homeowner’s insurance policy from People's Trust Insurance helps to protect homeowners against these common types of accidental loss.

With just one phone call, our affiliated general contracting company, the *Rapid Response Team, is ready to deploy 24/7 to mitigate damage to prevent further loss and make emergency repairs in the event of a covered claim. This service is already included as a part of the People’s Trust policy and why we ask all policyholders to “Call Us First!” to report a claim. 

If a pipe bursts in your home, the Rapid Response Team will mitigate water damage with high-end commercial water vacuums and keep the air moving with large blowers.

If your home suffers a fire, the Rapid Response Team will board up any breaches in the walls, windows or roof, and mitigate water damage with high-end commercial water vacuums and blowers.

If your home is damaged by wind or hail, the Rapid Response Team will board up broken windows and tarp the roof until further remediation can occur.

Once the home is stable, the Rapid Response Team will then work to coordinate the process of repairing the damage and restoring your home to its pre-loss condition so you can get your life back to normal fast and with the highest standards. Not only does the Rapid Response Team use quality materials, but they also offer a 3-year, 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. This ethic of preparedness and upfront investment by the Rapid Response Team saves our policyholders time, money and stress.
