1. Visiting and inspecting damage

The process will start with an appointment for our supervisor to visit and inspect your property. We will then prepare a quote for your insurance company. The quote will based on the damage listed on the scope of works provided to Dankav by your insurance company or assessor.

 

2. Make safe

Dankav can be appointed to undertake ‘make safe’ repairs to eliminate or reduce further resultant damage to your property. This could be putting a tarpaulin on a roof or disconnecting electricity to the property.

 

3. Providing the quote

We will provide our quote to your insurance company usually within seven days of our initial visit.

 

4. The next steps – assessing the quote

Your claim will be assessed based on quotes or inspection reports from Dankav and possibly engineering or other technical reports.

If the claim is accepted, the insurance company will authorise Dankav or an alternative repairer to proceed with your repair.

 

5. Planning the work

Once your insurer has given Dankav the authority to proceed we will discuss the work program with you and how repairs can be carried out as quickly as possible with minimal disruption.

Depending on the scale of the rectification work and state legislation we will provide you with a building contract for signing prior to commencement.

Insurance policies differ in terms of what is covered. We strongly recommend that you read your policy disclosure statement issued by your insurance company. Your insurance broker or insurer can provide more information.
An excess may be payable on claims – please refer to your policy. If an excess applies insurance companies may require that Dankav collect this excess. Should this apply the excess will need to be paid to Dankav before we start work. Dankav will discuss any policy excess that applies.
The area of fencing can be complex – generally if yours is a dividing fence, your insurer will only cover half the cost of fence repairs as it may be considered that you own half the fence. If the fence is between your property and government or council land the insurance company may cover all the cost of repair. Your insurer may choose to give you a cash settlement for the half portion, less any excess that may apply.
Dankav often gets asked to complete work outside the scope of what is covered by an insurance claim. We are happy to discuss this with you and it can be more economical to undertake home improvements when tradesmen are on site. An authority to proceed or a contract specifying the work will be drawn up and a deposit is required.
You will have a supervisor assigned to your job and this person will be your primary contact. Our claims department will also be in contact and would be glad to assist with any queries you may have.
