21 Replies and 5745 Views 4 wheel drive, needed in your opinion? ...Help buying new truck.  5745  21 Started by  NoleAdjuster
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I was curious if any adjusters with many years of experience with catastrophe deployment and independent work have found themselves in situations where they actually NEEDED the 4 wheel drive on their truck/vehicle.  Some I have talked with say you never know what kind of road you might have to drive down to get to a claim, especially after a storm and rain.  Others do all their work from a 2 wheel drive van I work mostly in the southeast US, I just wanted to hear if real experi...

9 Replies and 3567 Views Hello, need some advice please.  3567  9 Started by  MikeyB Hello all. I was licensed last year in Texas and went thru the AMCAT training program.

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Thanks in advance for taking the time to read my thread.  I have been a storm chasing salesmen/estimator for 8 years now. This past summer I decided that I would get my Texas All Lines License this winter. I still love being a salesmen, but storming gets more shady by the year, and finding a decent company to work for is getting harder and harder. I understand that you guys have to be 10 times more detailed and accurate when scoping a home. I understand that you guys cannot just take a wee...

5 Replies and 3118 Views Do I fit into any part of this industry?  3118  5 Started by  Kevin My first inclination about insurance adjusting is that it might fit me perfectly to become an independant agent, even though I have no experience in insurance or construction. I feel that I would need to be develop a niche segment, I just wonder if this niche exists. Let me explain: I already have a successful business (not like millionaire successful, but pays a good wage), but I want to get out more and deal with people. I have been self employed successfully for more than 20 years in ...

4 Replies and 3497 Views Transferring to field property  3497  4 Started by  WJV I'm a property adjuster with four years of experience. This experience has been inside the office rather than in the field. I know that some of the adjusters on this site would not consider people like myself to be real adjusters. I will briefly attempt to preclude the waste of time (theirs and mine) spent on negativity by clarifying that I have been with Pilot for four years without being laid off, up until recently, and without having any connections in the office prior to being employed. I be...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
One nice and sunny day in Oklahoma, I awoke still sleepy from a few hours sleep as I scoped and wrote estimates for repairs from recent Tornados. Partial towns, and neighborhoods literal wiped off the maps. Pure Catastrophe. I had chance to meet & greet several adjusters, of the 6 or so I met 100 stated they had excess of 10 years Adjusting each. Impressive talk, so I decided to treat this as a study. I asked them all if they wanted more work on the daily side, and asked them to ...

Not sure if its because you don’t want the market to get flooded or what. So from what I have read since I have no experience in this I’m reading that the best r...
