James Hargreaves (Plumbers Merchants)
A heavy and very localised cloud burst occurred in early August 14 over a specific area in Halifax. Two units owned by the James Hargreaves Group were affected. The company have over 45 units in the north of the UK specialising in plumbing and heating trade counters, bathroom showrooms and Renewable Energy
Harris Balcombe were instructed immediately by the insured and Nick Balcombe who was in the West Yorkshire area dealing with another major loss attended and headed the claim out of our Leeds office. The most important factor was to keep both units trading and this was achieved with temporary works, wonderful staff assistance and a determination by our clients that they simply would not close.
The damaged stocks were isolated very quickly and with the assistance of insurers and the loss adjuster’s removed from site. Early last month settlement was reached with Axa insurance Company with GAB Robins being the loss adjusters. Gerard McCann client services Director of Blufin said “that seems to me to represent a really good outcome.”
I would like to thank you for your help and advice.
Having your knowledge & experience proved invaluable in dealing with our claim and resulted a very satisfactory outcome.
