Client testimonials

We are very proud of the service we provide and stand by every product we carry. Read our testimonials from our happy customers.

My partner and i have had the pleasure of working with Lance and first mate restoration on many occasions

from Residential to large scale commercial hurricane claims extending from the Florida keys to the panhandle. We are very careful about when we make a referral to one of our clients and have always received amazing feedback from our clients when Lance did work for them, to say nothing of the support and expertise he provides us in our efforts to get our clients claims paid. Lance is professional, conscientious, thoughtful, fast and genuinely cares about our clients and making sure they they are happy and that the job is done 100% properly.

Prior to starting to work with Lance, we had occasion to work with a good number of mitigation companies and since working with Lance and now knowing the difference, we always try to make sure our clients have the opportunity to benefit from his expertise. This is our personal experience but we also happen to know that many of our counterparts at Five Star Claims also worked with Lance and their experience has the been the same. We have complete confidence when referring Lance to our clients that they will be treated with the same level of conscientious professionalism that they have come to expect from working with us and FiveStar claims.
