Farmers Mobile Claims Units Stationed in New Jersey

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/02/12 -- Two Farmers Insurance Mobile Catastrophe Claims (MCC) buses have joined Farmers Insurance Group of Companies® agents and claims teams, including subsidiaries Foremost Insurance, 21st Century Insurance and Bristol West, in continuing to help customers in those states who have suffered damage from Sandy.

"Our agents and claims personnel are assisting our customers with immediate needs and helping them file claims as quickly as possible in all areas hit hard by Sandy," explains Paul Quinn, Farmers Claims Assistant Vice President.

The Mobile Catastrophe Claims buses are equipped with state-of-the-art satellite communications equipment; claims stations; water, supplies, satellite laptops and telephones, and expert claims personnel on board.

In New Jersey, a MCC has left Bensalem, PA and will set up tomorrow morning at:

Barclay Farms Shopping Center

The second MCC is at:

This is exit 82 off of the Garden State Parkway. It's important that visitors access this via Garden State Parkway and if traveling from the west, they use I 195. Many smaller "cut thru" roads are closed.

It is also important that visitors fuel up before coming this close to the coast. Due to power outages, there are fewer stations open and some lines for gas.

"We invite our customers to come to the mobile claims units to file a claim, or they can contact their agent or call Farmers' 24-hour-7 days a week claims hotline, 800-HelpPoint (1-800-435-7764) for immediate assistance," Quinn said.
