All 3 of these carriers offer coverage specifically designed to cover preservation activities. Howard Property Preservation, LLC has to be added as an additional insured on the policy.

York-Jersey (Request Quote), 800.392.6958

Why would my invoice get adjusted or cut?
The most common reasons for final invoice adjustments are for contractors completing work that was not approved on the work order, completing a work order after the due date without an approved extension and reporting a debris count without trailer measurement photos to support the cubic yardage.
Howard Preservation will only adjust an invoice down to protect itself from a negative client invoice adjustment. Howard Preservation does not cut invoices to make more money, it only makes adjustments where it is necessary to protect the company from non-payment from its clients. If the risk is too high, the order will be sent to follow up for correction but in cases where the condition can’t be recreated, caution is always exercised when it comes to invoice calculation.
Where does Howard Preservation get its work from?
Howard Preservation contracts with banks, private real estate firms and preservation companies to secure high volumes of work. Howard Preservation obtains its work from a diverse portfolio of clients. This diversification helps ensure Howard Preservation can maintain a consistent and more predictable workload..
With over 10 years of experience, Howard Preservation has earned the reputation as a trusted source to quickly prepare a property for sale, rent, or safe, habitual condition. Our end-goal is to help you optimize the value of your assets quickly and professionally.
