Attention Restoration & Mitigation Contractors:
This is just one more graphic example of how the insurance claims industry will affect your disaster restoration business. If you did business with agents and adjusters of Harleysville Insurance previously, now you will deal with the restoration procedures and claims as required by Nationwide Insurance. Relationships you had with Harleysville agents and adjusters will no longer be the same.
Just like Liberty Mutual bought SAFECO, Ohio Casualty, Indiana, and Peerless. Relationships you had with those carriers changed forever!
