As a professional restoration contractor, you know how hard it is to work around contents. Shifting from room to room is time consuming and not the best way to handle the insured's contents. With the contents out of the way, you can be a more effective and professional contractor. We make it easier for you to remove the odor, dry the structure, repair fire damage, and perform the construction work required.

We know you get push back from some adjusters on removing contents because they don’t like the potential issues that can come up. You can assure the adjusters that your company has an expert in the field of contents handling and that we are a key strategic partner of yours. Below are just a few of the situations we have come across where an adjuster should have authorized the contents pack out and cleaning.
Fire & Smoke Loss
There have been several fire and smoke projects we have been called in on when the Insurance Adjuster has paid for cleaning and remediation. However, it was all done in the home. You know the story: The insured enters the structure after the work was done and smells smoke! If the contents had been removed and cleaned by Carton Contents, this would not have happened. With the contents gone, the home could have been properly treated and sealed so there would be no soot or lingering odor. As a contractor, it should be done correctly the first time - the way a professional job should be.
Another frequent example is when the insurance adjuster says no to a pack out and cleaning after a water loss. As a contractor, you do your best to manipulate contents in a house and get the wall to wall carpet out, but there is just too much in the way. You accidentally break something or ding furniture and can't do your job properly. It's only when the insured starts to get upset that the adjuster give you the green light to hire Carton Contents. In this case, you have lost days of remediation time, performed double the work, and the insured is out of their home for a longer time.
Taking the contents out is a more cost effective way to handle the remediation and helps you to do a professional job. It will also help create the most positive experience for the insured as they work their way through the loss by reducing the days that they will be out of their place.
