What we offer

How does it work?

From the very first moment, our customers are represented by a Marine specialist who attends to their interests on the spot, at the point of the accident or fault origin.

Upon receipt of an expertise requirement, a brief analysis of the information available is carried out in order to activate the most specialised inspector closest to the point of survey.

The expert arranges contacts on the spot to coordinate the visit and informs about the agreed inspection time (in the event of joint survey) or confirms they are on his way (in the case of urgent inspection). If applicable, the surveyor will handle (legal) protest (LOP) onto the liable party involved, safeguarding the customer’s interests.

In a very short time, the scope of the incident is reported (with photographs), by means of a preliminary report stating the most probable cause of the damage and its extension, as well as a first assessment of the quantum of the incident. If necessary, the client is consulted on the need to deepen investigations, with additional actions involved, including if advisable, the complementary assistance of other experts or technologies (laboratories, verification or quality test centres, private investigators and so on. 

In that way, the expert will proceed with subsequent checks and investigations, as well as completing pending documents that allows them to assess and prove data and values related to the case. The completion of these steps will allow the issue of the final damage report, stating the extension, cause and assessment of the damage that occurred.
