Each claim is different and as a result, may require different documents. However, almost all claims require proof of loss and documentation reflecting the value of the loss, such as an invoice or bill of sale. In addition, the following items may also be requested: freight invoice, packing list, replacement invoice, repair estimate, photos of the goods and packaging and, if lost, a police report or statement of non-receipt by the receiver. Your adjuster will be happy to identify which documents are needed for your claim.
If you experience a loss or damage, you must file a claim as soon as possible. This will provide the adjuster time to identify any needed steps or documentation so you can be paid in a timely fashion.
If the shipment was transported by a carrier other than UPS, you should notify the carrier immediately.
You will receive acknowledgment of claim receipt promptly by email. If you do not hear anything within 5 business days of submitting your claim, email Crawford and Company, the adjuster, at email@example.com to confirm if your claim has been received.
