Everybody has possessions, both small and large and these possessions often have a special meaning. For example: a house that feels like a real home, a machine that is essential for the continuity of business, a ring inherited from someone dear to you.

“At CED we understand what is valuable to people and business”

CED offers fast and clear solutions that protect, maintain or increase the value of your property. The power of CED lies in our integrated approach from advice on prevention to repair in kind. This makes us a full service provider or better still, a value specialist.

    1. Reliable and objective when it comes to value Protecting value starts with objectively determining value and risks. What is the reconstruction value of a home or commercial building? What risks of fire, burglary or water damage are there? What preventive measures would minimize these risks? CED, with the largest national network of valuers and inspectors at its disposal, guarantees an objective and reliable valuation of your property. We do this in the most cost-efficient manner: whenever possible we carry out assessment and valuation by remote control using advanced tools; in other cases, if so required, a valuer or inspector will visit you on location. Thus, your customers can make the right decisions with confidence.

What makes Connect Claims such a success is that whenever possible we work digitally and whenever necessary, we work personally.

In every field, CED has the in-house expertise to ascertain the cause, extent and circumstances of damage from buildings and their contents to travel, liability and transport issues. Our NIVRE registered experts are well-informed in their respective fields and work skillfully and with empathy. They acknowledge that some possessions have a special significance to their owners – and as such, they are invaluable. An additional investigation is required sometimes. This is where our forensic experts come in: they seek out tactical and technical evidence that can provide irrefutable clarity even if the damage investigations extend far beyond national borders.
