NARD by Urban Valet, a textile restoration vendor for fire & water claims, is rebranding to Renewal Claim Solutions of Upstate New York & Greater New England. The shift comes after 20+ years in the restoration industry and is in response to the growing need for specialty restoration services.
Renewal’s President, Eric Pyne, thinks the new name is a much better representation of the business overall. “We’re really pleased with the Renewal Claim Solutions rebrand. The look is fresh and clean and we’re in the business of renewing – so it’s perfect,” says Pyne.
Originally the textile restoration department started as a division of Urban Valet Cleaners, Inc. Years later, Urban joined the North American Restoration Dry Cleaners (NARD) franchise, serving WNY and Northern PA. Now, as Renewal Claim Solutions of Upstate NY & Greater New England, they’ve added additional services and more than doubled their coverage area.
The newest service to be added is electronics restoration. Renewal’s staff completed an extensive training course and received certification in order to restore computers, TV’s, appliances and more. “Our specialty will continue to be textiles but our offering has expanded to include electronics and art restoration as well,” states Pyne. “These are contents that our mitigation company partners generally don’t handle themselves, but that families and insurance carriers need restored after a smoke or water event.”
While changing to a new name and logo is a large undertaking, Pyne plans to be completely transitioned soon. “We expect to have the rebranding of all of our material – print, digital, signage and van rewraps – complete within the next 14 days,” notes Pyne.
