Depart worry-free

Let Chubb demonstrate actions to take as you plan and prepare your home before departure, so you can focus on making memories.

Real people, real stories

 

Case Study 1:

While a Chubb client was out of town, a water supply line in the second story master bathroom burst. Water ran for multiple days, creating extensive damage to almost 75% of the home's living space. Chubb paid claim of $1.6 million to cover the damages, and included the installation of an automatic water shut-off device to prevent future water damage incidents.

 

Case Study 2:

A Chubb client was traveling when a severe cold snap caused pipes to freeze and burst, flooding the entire house. While the home was being repaired, Chubb provided accomodations similar to the current home. Chubb also had no problem, when the client hired the original decorator to make sure the artwork and custom furniture was properly packed to move securely.

 

Case Study 3:

When a Chubb client was away, she received a call from the alarm company to advise that the smoke detectors had been set off. Since the air conditionming was on at the time the fire started, it contaminated the entire venting and HVAC system. Beyond Chubb waiving the deductible, we ensured the family maintained their standard of living while repairs were being made.
