About Property Claims Loss Assessors

Property Claims Loss Assessors (PCLA) are insurance assessors who work on behalf of the public.

We’re dedicated to helping people who have suffered accidental loss or damage to their home or business. Our goal is to ensure our clients receive the full compensation that they are entitled to from their insurance company.

We deal with the insurance company on your behalf. As soon as we understand the terms of the client’s policy, PCLA will conduct tests to find out exactly what can be claimed for. With PCLA working for you, we do all of the negotiating to ensure you get the best possible settlement. 

All of PCLA’s team members have excellent working relationships with the loss adjusters appointed by the Insurance Companies, meaning all claims are dealt with efficiently and fast.

The company was founded in June 2015 by Greg Smyth – who has over 20 years experience within the insurance industry. Greg also has a strong team working alongside him in order to make sure that every claim is dealt with quickly and effectively. 

While based in Belfast, PCLA cover all areas of Northern Ireland. Call us today to find out how we can ensure you receive your full entitlement.
