I have used 1-800 Board Up for all of our board ups since they started in Ft Wayne. Before we had 1-800 we had no one to call that was ready to do this. It is very comforting to know that when we have a fire we can call 1-800 and within a half hour to an hour they will be there ready to secure any scene. It’s not just a job for these people, they really care about those in need of their services and protecting whatever is left and preventing any further damage.

Not only has 1-800 Board Up been very quick to respond to our incidents. They have gone beyond just boarding up and securing the property they have worked with the victims to recover from their tragedy.

The presence of your technician was very beneficial to us. He provided flashlights, Red Cross bag of supplies, use of a cell phone, and assisted us in contacting Walgreen’s for refills on prescriptions. He provided constant attention and caring concern for our immediate needs at the time of the fire. Also, we appreciated the basket of goodies delivered to the desk of our lodging on the day after the fire. The ceramic mugs were great!
