Lodge your claim ASAP: RACQ

RACQ has encouraged residents affected by Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie and associated rain to lodge their insurance claims.

The insurer said they had already received hundreds of claims over the past few days but expected those numbers to rise as residents returned home.

RACQ spokesperson Renee Smith said RACQ members could be at ease knowing the Club’s Home and Contents insurance covered storm, cyclone, flood and storm surge damage.

“So many people across Queensland have been affected by this weather system and we want to help get them back on their feet as quickly as possible,” Ms Smith said.

“As soon as it is safe to do so, we’d encourage our members to get in touch online or over the phone to start the claims process.”

Affected members were advised to take photographs of damage to their property and furniture, keep receipts for essential items which may have been purchased in the wake of the deluge and to keep samples of any materials removed from their home, such as damaged carpet.
