Default Did you know about hurricane relocation reimbursement?

We understand that everyone has a lot more on their plates than usual this year, so we wanted to send out a reminder about the hurricane relocation programs that most insurance companies offer. I recently read an interesting article on com stating that the forcasters were thinking that 2020 was going to be an above-normal season. With everything else 2020 has brought us, maybe we should have expected this

Each company is different, but many aviation insurance policies will reimburse you to move your aircraft out of the path of a named hurricane or wind storm if possible. These companies would rather pay the reimbursement expenses (usually up to a set limit) rather than pay for a totaled aircraft. If you?re wondering if your insurance company partakes in a program like this, it will be listed in your policy. You can also contact your insurance broker for more information.

If you are unable to move your aircraft and need to turn in a claim, here are numbers for the companies we insure Vans Aircraft through:

? Global Aerospace - 913-451-9660 or 888-228-2281
? AIG - 866-463-0408 /
? AIM/Aerospace ?
? Starr ? 404-946-1400 / an emergency Jeffrey Greenawalt 214-223-0202
? U.S. Specialty Insurance Company - 801-467-8731 /
? QBE ? Western USA 208-891-3275 / Eastern USA 513-833-7076 / Southern USA 470-277-0048
? Old Republic ? 770-590-4950 /
? USAIG - 866-789-1986 / AND

I?ve also attached a link to the article I read in case you were interested.

We live in South Florida and have evacuated our RV-7A twice In 9 years. The insurance company was prompt in paying for most of the relocation costs.
