Here's a link to our web page with Insurance Company Claim Departments' contact email and phone numbers.
At Cronin Insurance Agency, we will be open as long as its safe for our employees. Friday and Monday we may have shortened hours or even close depending on where Irma is located at that time.
For those of us who have been through a number of these great storms we can all agree; RESPECT THE STORM! Prepare ahead of time and hunker down until after the storm is past you. Remember that during the Eye of the Storm you are only half way through the danger- no matter what it looks like outside.
Be safe, stay dry, and reach out to us if you need help.
