As the Beast from the East collides with Storm Emma and takes a firm and chilly grip of Britain, weather weary staff from Adrian Flux Insurance have proved that snow business doesn’t have to mean slow business.
General Manager Gerry Bucke was delighted with his team’s response to the white-out and rapid deterioration of transport services kicked off when the Beast from the East began to roll in on Monday..
Despite the snow warnings and the havoc caused by the weather, the Adrian Flux 24 hour claims service will remain open for customers who need to phone accident hotlines.
24-hour help if you need to make a Beast from the East claim
If you need to make a claim on your Adrian Flux policy, call 0344 381 4420, any time, day or night, no matter what the weather conditions.
Gerry added: “We’re receiving calls about the usual claims for such weather conditions, particularly slow moving and low-impact road traffic collisions.”
There was approximately a 10% increase in the usual number of claims on Tuesday, but on Wednesday there were 30% fewer claims suggesting many motorists decided to heed weather warnings, follow the sound advice and refrain from driving in the snow and ice caused by the confluence of the Beast from the East and Storm Emma.
Beat the Beast from the East and stay indoors
The best advice for motorists is not to chance a trip on the road, but if you really have to make a journey, check with the Met Office before setting out.
The current weather warning concerning the Beast from the East and Storm Emma is: “A spell of heavy snow and blizzard conditions is expected. The snow will be accompanied by very strong easterly winds leading to severe drifting.
“Some places could also see significant ice build up due to freezing rain from later on Thursday evening, most likely in the south of the area. Long delays and cancellations of public transport seem highly likely.
“Some roads are likely to become blocked by deep snow, stranding vehicles and passengers.
“Long interruptions to power supplies and other utilities are very likely to occur, along with damage to trees and other structures due to heavy snow or ice.”
