About United Claim Service, Inc

  • We specialize in the preparation, negotiation and settlement of home and business first-party property insurance claims, which arise from perils insured against, with particular emphasis on fire insurance loss claims.
  • We have prepared and negotiated thousands of major loss claims since 1972. We are based in Bloomington, Minnesota and presently concentrate our efforts in Minnesota.
  • It is our mission to guide our client through the claim process as quickly as possible, while seeking to obtain the best results possible.
  • Our public adjusters are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Commerce. We are also licensed, bonded and insured. We also take our pledge to comply with NAPIA Rules of Professional Conduct and Ethics very seriously. (See complete rules below)
