Ex-Cyclone Debbie

FMG’s received around 100 claims to date and expects that number to increase significantly in the next several weeks once clients have a chance to assess their properties for damage.

Most claims to date have been for flood damage to buildings and contents. There are also claims for wind damage to farm buildings.

Before assessing property for damage we encourage clients to make sure it’s first safe to do so.

We’ve also begun calling clients in some of the hardest hit regions to ensure they’re ok and to offer any advice to help them through this difficult time.

In addition we support advice from the Insurance Council of New Zealand which includes:

  • Avoid entering flood waters
  • Do all you can to make buildings safe and weatherproof – but only if it’s safe for you to do so
  • Check with your insurer before carrying out non-essential repairs, and;
  • Take photos of damage to support your claim.

If your property has suffered damage let us know as soon as possible. Call 0800 366 466 or get your claim started online

Whatever you do to minimise the loss, the most important thing is to keep yourself safe.
