Mark Shehadie, Head of Claims
Mark explains what you can expect when you call the Claims team
When you contact the claims department you will be speaking with a claims examiner, either someone who’s managing your claim or likely to be. The examiner will be more than happy to assist you with any query.
If you have a query regarding an existing claim, please have the Claims Reference number we quote on all of our correspondence, this will allow us to quickly identify the status of your claim so that we can assist to the best of our ability.
If you’re query relates to a new claim, then please have the claim submission details with you so that we can confirm receipt of your claim. We will be happy to discuss our claims process and documentation required for us to finalise our assessment of your claim.
Trade credit claims can sometimes seem overly complicated. Please be rest assured that our goal is to make the claims assessment process as straight forward as possible, assessing liability quickly and efficiently, and ensuring you receive compensation for the loss you have suffered as soon as possible.
