Default DID YOU KNOW about hurricane relocation reimbursement 2

First and foremost, we here at Gallagher Aviation hope that everyone was able to stay safe during Hurricane Harvey. With clean-up just beginning, another part of the nation is getting ready to face the same situation, We decided to put this information back out there if in the event you need to contact us or your insurance company.

Did you know that many aviation insurance policies will reimburse you to move your aircraft out of the path of a named hurricane or wind storm?

In light of Hurricane Harvey and the incoming Hurricane Irma, we wanted to remind you to check with your insurance company about a possible hurricane relocation reimbursement program. Each company is different, but several offer a reimbursement program if you have relocated your aircraft to be out of the way of an the oncoming hurricane. These companies would rather pay the reimbursement expenses (usually up to a set limit) rather than pay for a totaled aircraft. If you’re wondering if your insurance company partakes in a program like this, it will be listed in your policy. You can also contact your insurance broker for more information.

If you were unable to move your aircraft and need to turn in a claim, here are numbers for the companies we insure Vans Aircraft through:

• Global Aerospace - 913-451-9660 or 888-228-2281
• AIG - 866-463-0408 / AerospaceClaimsPhoenix@aig.com
• AIM/Aerospace – aimclaims@hallmarkgrp.com
• Starr – 404-946-1400 / aviationclaimreports@starrcompanies.com/if an emergency Jeffrey Greenawalt 214-223-0202
• U.S. Specialty Insurance Company - 801-467-8731 / claims@ussic.com
• QBE – Western USA 208-891-3275 / Eastern USA 513-833-7076 / Southern USA 470-277-0048
• SAU – 877-371-9774 / 7356ANSA@yorkrsg.com
• Old Republic – 770-590-4950 / http://www.oldrepublicaerospace.com/...t-a-claim.aspx
• USAIG - 866-789-1986 / Michael.wilhelms@usaig.com AND Carol.Turner@usaig.com

Gallagher is thinking of everyone affected in the path of Irma and hoping everyone stays safe.

Just curious, does using the hurricane relo count as a claim against the policy?

With the payout usually only being $500 to $1,000, most insurance companies will not take the relocation reimbursement into consideration when writing the policy. The insurance companies would still need to know about the event, but it would be more of an activity rather than a claim.

The point of offering the relocation reimbursement is so the insurance company does not have to pay for the full hull value of the aircraft. You are taking care of your aircraft in a time of need which helps both you and them so the insurance companies will not punish you for that.

Thanks Leah. Never wanted to make a claim for $300 of fuel if it was going to cost me with increased premiums. Back in '04 had to relocate 3 times for the storms hitting central Florida and just paid out of pocket.
