    Hello All,
     
    I would like some advise on how to secure more scope and estimating projects.  I am a senior building consultant with an engineer on staff (2 man crew) We have all the tools and knowledge to complete all types of P&C consulting projects to 50 million dollar loss (we are not building contractors), but our typical assignment is in the 500,000. - 1 Million range. We travel throughout the country to perform our work.
    I would like to know how to reach out to Adjusters to make them aware of our services? Our problem is we have all the knowledge and tools, but do not know how to get more work to stay busy.
     
    Thanks
    Tom

    Tom, its kinda a one on one situation with local adjusters working in a town. These adjusters have to be careful about "steering" to contractors. The traveling catastrophe adjusters do the appraisal of the damage with the insureds concurrence and recommend a check to the insured and mortgagee. I don't know of any adjuster in the cat. business that would recommend his own brother. Too many land mines and too many bad things happen.
     
    Now we have another side a darker side, hang out down at the local pup on Friday night and you will spot a prospect or two and make your move

    Chuck I hope you never lose your check book, cause if so, posting your signature all over the internets is probably a bad idea.
    I do it because I want to provide a better life for my family than my parents could provide for me.

    Thanks, I appreciate your concern, but I don't have a personal check book and have never written a personal check. A copy of my signature, on any financial instrument, is absolutely worthless.
