Testimonials from Bundy-McNear Customers

In November of 1995, we experienced an extensive fire in our rental property on Oak Street, West Lafayette. Within hours after the early morning fire, not only our agent, Bob Watson and the adjuster from Indiana Insurance Company, Dean Criss were on the scene but also Serv-Pro restoration services as well as Neal's Contracting who ultimately, totally refurbished the apartment so that occupancy in the Purdue Fall semester was possible.

Throughout this ordeal, the above referenced individuals and their respective companies proceeded on a professional basis and provided us with exemplary service. We would recommend them highly as insurance agent, company, and restoration services.

-Eric C & Germaine Oesterle

Both Edie and I were greatly surprised by finding a check for our insurance claim in our mailbox the very same day we started this process. While I haven't had any experience making claims in the 25 years I have been driving, I'm under the impression that things don't generally move this quickly. We certainly appreciate this high level of service and feel at ease that our needs would be met if we have future misfortunes.
