CARE AND RESPONSIBILITY

separador.png

As Marine Surveyors, we are often involved with marine insurance claims, damage and salvage, accident and fraud investigation.

 

Our surveyors are ready to assist in conducting the necessary inspections, surveys and/or examinations to assess, monitor and report on the found condition. We also provide effective and responsive claims management and adjusting services.

 

Unlike larger surveying companies, we at Picolo & Associados, Ltda. have a duty for care and responsibility to our selves and most importantly to our clients. By having a compact but large enough operation, we are able to provide exceptional service while at the same time maitain the quality and standard we hold ourselves to.

 

We like to say that "our employees wear the (company) shirt" and at the same time we empower them in order to make the right decisions and take the necessary responsibility.
