(BUSINESS WIRE)--GEICO urges policyholders whose vehicles have been damaged in the recent Atlanta area flooding to report their claims as early as possible. To reach GEICO’s claims team at anytime, 24 hours a day, call 1-800-841-3000 or report the claim on www.geico.com.
“Our adjusters have been in Atlanta and the local areas all week assisting policyholders with damaged or flooded vehicles,” said Gary Musolf, head of GEICO claims in the region. “If you notice damage to your vehicle, contact GEICO right away so we can make arrangements to take care of your claim and get you back on the road.”
GEICO advises residents to heed all weather warnings and road closures. However, if driving is necessary, GEICO recommends these rain and flood driving tips to keep you safe:
* Heavy rain can make it difficult for other drivers to see you. Keep your headlights on and drive slowly, keeping your eyes out for on-coming traffic.
* If you see a large puddle or standing water, go around it or choose a different route. That puddle could be hiding a deep hole.
* Give yourself plenty of time to brake and do so gently in order to avoid hydroplaning.
“The safety of our policyholders and the quick and quality repair of their vehicles is our first priority during stressful times like these,” said Musolf.
