Industry Specific Services Manufacturing

...After everything that has happened and with a lot of hard work and endless days, we are back up and running. As fast as we moved rebuilding, it never seemed fast enough in my eyes but in reality it was a miracle we were able to save the business. My employees, family, friends, friends of friends worked countless hours to help us rebuild. In particular, I want to acknowledge and express my sincere gratitude for the fine work done by the Adjusters International team. My claim was very complex and I know I would not have done as well without your help. Craig, your expertise and negotiating skills were heaven-sent! You guided the claim process effectively, and you pushed for things in the settlement that have made a very positive impact. You and your people did a wonderful job, and I wholeheartedly recommend Adjusters International to anyone who has a large claim. ...Thank You!”

Insurance Claim Services For Manufacturers

When you’ve worked hard to grow your manufacturing business, suffering insured property damage shouldn’t threaten your future. Your commercial property insurance claim is supposed to make you whole — and our public insurance adjusters make sure no one stands in the way of your maximum financial recovery.

If you’ve suffered commercial property damage from fire, water, wind or another disastrous event, you do NOT have to deal with commercial insurance claim delays, denials, or low-ball offers.

Call in the public adjusters at Globe Midwest Adjusters International. We have a 94-year track record of successfully helping policyholders collect every dollar they’re entitled to under the terms of their commercial property insurance.

Trusting your insurance company to pay you everything you’re entitled to for your commercial property insurance claim is like trusting the IRS to do your taxes. It’s not a risk you have to take.

Much like you’d consult a CPA for complex tax matters, or an attorney for complex legal matters, our public insurance adjusters are licensed professionals who work exclusively for you when you need the highest payout for your insurance claim settlement.

If you’re being treated unfairly settling your commercial property insurance claim, Globe Midwest Adjusters International tips the scale back in your favor.

Your insurance company has its own claims adjuster, who represents the insurance company’s interest in your claim. When you need someone to represent your interests in a manufacturing-related property insurance claim, never settle for less than Globe Midwest.
