This certainly sets them apart in what is becoming a very crowded field. Seems like every day I read an article about a new camera for the DIY folks. So any little thing to stand out from the field will help IMHO.

Probably will have to fight to even see the payout like you do insurance companies

Probably will have to fight to even see the payout like you do insurance companies

And with this being a new service, there is no customer data to show how they live up to their promises.

After reading the headline, I thought, "That which is rewarded, thrives." I wondered how they would manage this challenge.

It turns out they've done it brilliantly! Insurance companies run interference for them!
