May 21, 2021 25 min

Episode Description

Andy Gurczak is the founder of AllCity Adjusting, a licensed public adjusting firm. His journey began in the construction industry, and he discovered his true calling in public adjusting thanks to Herb Johnson, the first African American public adjuster in Illinois. With a family motto of “do it right or don’t do it all,” Andy's unique team structure allows his firm to move claims quickly and efficiently, always resulting in maximum settlements for clients. Over the last decade, he's protected thousands of people and helped them receive more money than what their insurance initially offered.

“Make sure you have coverage for every instant and, and get it in writing when you're talking to your agent. Because if an agent told you you had coverage and then you're not covered for it, they do have an err and emission policy. So make sure you get everything in writing about what you're actually getting and what you're not getting.“ - Andy Gurczak
