“Following a bad fire in Ballymaloe Foods we were advised to engage Alan FitzGerald to assist us with the management of the insurance process. Alan gave us peace of mind from the day we met him, with his wealth of knowledge while we faced our disaster with no prior experience in dealing with such. Alan was always nearby, easy to contact, very responsive and kept us regularly updated on progress with our claim. He ensured we got the best possible result demonstrating an exemplary negotiation ability. We very much trusted Alan and have no hesitation in recommending FitzGeralds Chartered Loss Adjusters to other concerns who find themselves in a similar unfortunate predicament."

“Northside Community Enterprises Ltd., suffered extensive fire damage in September 2003. We engaged Alan FitzGerald to deal with our material damage and business interruption claims and we were delighted with the level of service and expertise provided by him"
Fr. John O'Donovan, Chairman, Northside Community Enterprises Ltd., Blackpool, Cork
“In October 2004 we discovered that our “Stanley” oil burner stove was leaking Kerosene directly into our kitchen area. Our insurance broker recommended that we retain a Loss Adjuster for our needs and in this case they advised us to retain Alan FitzGerald of FitzGeralds Chartered Loss Adjusters/ Property Assess to handle our claim. As Alan was experienced in diesel leakage from past claims, and in insurance parlance as this type of claim can be very tricky as diesel soaks everywhere and to gauge this type of claim, it demands professionalism that can only be got from past claims. In hindsight, this was the best decision we made as without his input and professionalism we would not have returned to our house in a set period and having everything replaced without hassle of agreeing figures which we in fairness would only be guessing at, whereas Alan knew the value of reinstatement and only settled for realistic sums. This is one claim I would not ever like to experience again. However, with Property Assess on board, they made the difference from remedying a problem rather than coping with a disaster."

KC’s Chipper, Douglas, Cork – Flood damage 28/6/12
“ Hi Alan, I am happy to add my voice to doubtless many others in order to confirm our positive experience in dealing with Property Assess. I had dealt personally with claims with relative success in the past but I had no idea how the insurance landscape had changed, and not for the best, when dealing as a claimant now. Being able to leave the difficult negotiations with the Insurers for a major disaster such as ours (when wiped out totally by the Douglas flooding) to professionals allowed us to focus on the all-consuming task of rebuilding and sourcing equipment without distraction. We were delighted to be able to open again after five weeks (as were our customers). Thanks again."
