I have two coastal properties and have been through my share of hassles dealing with insurance companies. The last time I finally was so fed up with the whole game I hired an attorney right out of the gate to handle the whole matter. I never thought that was a good idea because I would be paying them and cutting into my rebuilding fund, however, they fight like hell for you (and themselves because most work off of a percentage of the total claim) and because of this most of the time you probably come out ahead even after their cut. Not really applicable for a claim on a car only but if there is significant property and damage at stake it might be worth checking in to.
Been there before and will be there again. Take one day at a time and things will be better than they were before the storm one day.

Thread: my car.. buried in at sea

i'm curious as to how the Ventnor and AC beachfronts held up - those dunes were added some years ago (not sure when - the 90's, i think) and a lot of people have been fighting against the building of the dunes since day 1 - blocks the view from the boardwalk etc etc. be interesting to see how it worked out when the real deal came along.

I used Matson to ship my car from Kauai to Oakland ( was born and raised in Kauai). The first time I drove my car throughout the entire United States. The car was a Honda Element with a camping kit, so I saved a lot of money by not going to stay in hotels.
The next time I did the same after my parents moved on the east coast. Ended up on an epic surfing adventure.
The car ended up getting hit by a surge that knocked it right out of my driveway. I chased it for a bit, but said, whatever. I tried to Kayak to find the car today, but no luck. The car is buried at sea.
State Farm is moving slowly on this claim due to all the loss.
