To deal with an influx in hail damage claims following Monday’s brief storm in Winnipeg and southern parts of the province, Manitoba Public Insurance is opening up a special hail claim centre on Thursday.
Nearly 1,000 hail claims have been received so far from vehicle owners. The claim centre at 15 Barnes Street will be dedicated to handling hail damage only and is capable of seeing up to 300 customers daily.
Affected vehicle owners need to book an appointment prior to arriving at the special hail centre. To report claims, Winnipeg area customers can call (204) 985-7000. The line is open Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
