Are you taking advantage of the discounts your insurance provider offers? Here's how to go about making sure you're getting the savings you deserve.
Water everywhere ... are you covered? Water damage is the most common homeowner's insurance claim. It can go beyond flooding to include backups and pipe damage.
A high deductible homeowners insurance policy will save you money on your annual premium, but review these pros and cons of such a policy before you sign.
First, call your insurance company and tell them you do not want any proceeds paid to the contractor under your policy as you are not going with them. This way they can not collect money on your behalf. Insurance will typically have you sign a form for release of funds anyway but this is a good extra step to make sure your signature isn't forged. Second, call the contractor and tell them you will not be needing their services afterall. Did your husband pay a deposit? If so it may be non-refundable. Then follow up with a certified letter.
An email as well doesn't hurt but some states don't yet recognize email as a form of communication for legally binding documentation. This may have changed and I'm sure more states do recognize them as I haven't followed that topic elsewhere as much as I used to. The contractor's office should be local. A sure fire way to ensure they got the message is to deliver the letter to the office of the contractor and have someone at the office sign a duplicate stating it has been recieved and read. There's no arguing whether they received it or not by doing that.
Hopefully you've learned your lesson about high pressure sales techniques and storm chasers looking for a quick buck. Some people find out a much harder way. While these guys may be legitimate you should always do your homework on a contractor before signing the contract. Unless you have water running out of the house and the work has to be done on the spot it's not so much of an emergency that it can't wait until the next day.

Knowing I was stranded in an exposed and vulnerable location
on a busy street,
1) They should have been more accurate in their
initial projection of the time it would take to get service. Had I known
at 6pm that it might take 7 hours for them to show up, I would certainly have
chosen to find someone else to tow me home.
2) They should have contacted me directly as the
delays piled up. Instead, I had to call them to find out.
3) They desperately need to increase the number of
available tow trucks in the winter. Their repeated excuse that the

sunny and in the mid-30's all day. If that was the cause for such
ridiculous miscalculations and delays, I wonder if perhaps they have someone

I got a note from Herb a week or so ago following up as he hadn't yet heard from my closer and he wanted to make sure he met my deadlines. Greatly appreciated! I passed on the contact info, Herb took care of everything from there.
I've got great coverage, at a lower price than I was paying before and from an agent who knows how to follow through.
