This time of year can be erratic with storms of all types: rain, sleet, hail, ice, snow – blowing in and out of town at random, as well as “out of town storm chasers” that go door-to-door claiming to help you with storm damage! By following these simple steps, you can avoid falling for a scam or ending up with an outrageous bill.
Step One – Contact your Insurance Company!
Remember: in the event of storm damage to your property, contact your insurance company first. They typically have a list of preferred companies they recommend that you use for service.
Step Two – Ask for a Missouri State Business License Number.
Asking the service provider for their Missouri State Business License Number ensures that you are speaking with a valid Missouri company. You can also visit www.sos.mo.gov to see if the company is active in Missouri.
