Enservio to Present Webinar on Valuing Guns & Ammo

Webinar to teach insurance adjusters how to value handguns, shotguns, rifles and ammunition

NEEDHAM, Mass. – October 13, 2014Enservio, Inc., today announced an October 15 webinar to cover best practices for properly identifying and valuing common firearm types such as handguns, rifles and shotguns and their assorted ammunition types. Presented by Enservio’s resident firearms valuation expert, Chad Horlbogen, the webinar is complimentary and runs Wednesday, October 15th at 11:30 am EDT. Attendees can register by clicking here. Enservio is the leading provider of software and services across the entire value chain of contents claims processing.

Adjusters, claim reps, claim managers, claim supervisors, claim directors and anyone dealing with non-restorable contents claims will benefit from this rare opportunity to learn the key value factors for establishing the value of firearms. The webinar will also cover gun terminology, popular gun types, safety precautions, and a short briefing on valuing antique pistols.

Nearly half of all Americans are gun owners, making the U.S. the highest per capita in the world for the possession of firearms. The chances of a field adjuster or claims inventory professional finding a gun while on the job are extraordinarily high. In fact, approximately 10% of the $2 billion in claims processed annually by Enservio contains guns.  According to GunPolicy.org, the estimated rate of private gun ownership (both licit and illicit) in America is 101.05 firearms per 100 people. 

“Although firearms can be a taboo subject, they do represent a good portion of the claims we see every day,” said Chad Horlbogen, who has 26 years of advanced firearms experience and tactical weaponry training. “Being a specialty category item, firearms have unique characteristics that claim pros need to know in order to fairly reimburse or replace these items correctly. We hope this webinar will help adjusters gain a better understanding of firearms in general and how they can use that understanding to best apply to claims.”
