Drones In Insurance

The Growth of Drones/UAV’s in the Insurance Industry

The insurance industry is always one of the first to adapt to changes in technology. Firms constantly striving to speed up processes and reduce costs, as any good business should. That is why the growth of drones in Insurance, is one of the fastest growing sectors.

oof-inspection-with-annotations-dublin-irelandDrones can quickly and safely access areas of structures that are locked in or inaccessible without expensive scaffolding or hoists. This also reduces the working at height risk, taking inspectors down from dangerous positions until essential. 

By using licensed operators, jobs are properly planned and executed when safe to do so. The rapid development of technology in the drone sector, brings new drones and sensors to market at a rapid rate. We recently completed an environmental survey from 1/2 a kilometre from the location, and still obtained the required results. This shows how we can use the same technology to access even the most difficult location. 

Ways where Drone assist in insurance:
  • Pre-cover assessment, providing 4K video or high-resolution images

  • Claims assessors’ safety is improved
  • For significant events, drones can show the extent of damage, even allowing the insurance company decide the level of resourcing required to manage the claims.
  • Speed of claims improvement
  • Significant reduction in cost of claim, due to efficiencies in data capture and analysis

In the case of older houses or period ones, ladders are not an option. In built-up areas, this can be even less of an option. From terraced houses and commercial properties that are locked in on both sides, this makes inspection time consuming, costly and sometimes hazardous.
