Wait to throw things out
While it may be tempting to throw away damaged items, be sure to photograph them before you do. Also, confirm with your adjuster that the items will not be needed at any point during the claims investigation process. If the items have special model numbers, or contain specific parts, document this information for your replacement records before trashing.
See what services are available
Depending on the extent of the damage to your business, you may need to use emergency services. Your Amerisure agency can recommend these services like roof covers, door and window boarding, or even a data warehouse provider.
