Damage inspection is one of the key areas that Riverside Marine Service focuses on when performing a pre-purchase boat inspection. Finding a damaged component on a boat can make or break a purchase. The resulting report may be used for claim indemnification or protestation. Normally, damage inspection is required to assist in the insurance claims settlement process and could include recommended repairs, estimated repair costs, and if requested, possible cause.
Insurance Marine Surveys
This service is performed to assist the insurance carrier in the determination of risk involved for a particular vessel. Their interests include structural integrity, safety, as well as its intended use. Many insurance companies require a survey on a particular boat or yacht before coverage is offered. They will also have a vested interest in the boats fair market and replacement values. Most marine insurance companies require a SAMS or NAMS surveyor for acceptance of reports.
Riverside Marine Services will assist in this time consuming and complicated process, leaving you to sit back and relax during a time that is usually very stressful to the potential buyer. Contact Riverside Marine Services today to schedule your pre-purchase inspection!
