  Yes i have experience with them. I got SCREWED everytime! However I've
heard that there are people that you can hire that specialize in dealing
with insurance companies. I strongly suggest hiring one of them BEFORE you
talk to the insurnace company. If you say ONE wrong word, your claim will
be worthless. I lost a claim for $6000 or $7000 of machine equipment after
a neighbors tree fell on my shed and I said "yes" when the adjustor asked
if the equipment COULD be used for commercail use. (It could but I wasn't.)
