$500 and $5,000. If sufficient information isn’t furnished in a customer inspection, a joint third party inspection still may be
necessary. A joint third party inspection is required for all claims over $5,000.
To arrange a joint third party inspection(over $5,000) complete and submit the top portion of this form via the email address or fax
