Communities stunned by storm and flood damage in Marlborough, Nelson

The massive cleanup operation continues, following the severe storm across the Nelson region a couple of weeks ago. More than a hundred houses in Nelson have been deemed too unsafe to live in, and hundreds more damaged by slips and flooding.

We currently have 5 adjusters on the ground in Nelson, who can undertake commercial and residential claims. More resources are available and will be deployed to the area if the claim counts continue to escalate. Though the majority ofclaims are domestic, adjusters from our Forensic Accounting Services team have attended around 30 site inspections in Nelson and Blenheim last week.

We have procured 2 water taxis to allow access into remote areas in the Marlborough Sounds where a dedicated team of Loss Adjusters and Mode Consultants will be attending site inspections this week by boat. We still have available capacity in the Sounds, if required.

Our ModeConnect team, has been mobilised with multiple make safe and emergency works completed and remaining capacity to complete further works, including strip outs. Mode Building Consultancy, Quantity Surveying and Architecture and Design services are all available for instruction and to assist with reinstatement works.

The storm has created an unprecedented amount of land claims, involving significant land slips and silt damage, and nearly half of claims received having a land element attached to it. Our specialist Land Assessment team has been active in the affected areas for the past 2 weeks and they are continuing to work through these losses. We have team of 7 adjusters in Nelson and 1 in the Marlborough Sounds assisting with landslip claims, as well as 2 additional adjusters supporting the Wellington team with over 550 landslips in the region.

We’re prepared and ready to assist, whatever the situation.
