    I will go ahead and make an early prediction since this one has been so hard to track.

     

    Charleston, S.C

    Cat 2

    A bit early with the Hurricane tag, still 18 to 48 hours if it makes it. That said this might be the long awaited Georgia storm. But what of TD09 (Ike 2b) and 99l which looks like a sure bet to form.
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    I am also thinking Savannah but, since Steve already picked it, I'll go a little south and say Brunswick.

    As of 5 PM, according to NHC, yes, Hanna is now a hurricane. I will not hazard a guess as to eventual landfall

    Which Hurricane should we work? With Hanna and now Ike on top of everything else. I bet Citizens of Fl should be in full panic mode with the rest of the insurance industry. Should adjusting fee bills spike with supply and demand just as the price of gas has? I am now taking bids for my services as everyone else should be doing. Let the market set the price. Don't laugh or smirk at this post. Give it some thought. How many offers have you received in the last 48 hours? Thats demand!!

    Makem pay to play!!!!

    I am holding hands with Alan and humming some where over the rainbow A little history lesson on the HO-3. After Hugo hit Charleston SC and CHARLOTTE, NC in 1989. The very next year tree debris limit was changed to $500.00 for any one or ALL. Think it  is now up to $1,000.

    "How many offers have you received in the last 48 hours?"

    unless you have rec'd claims you don't have an offer. Stand by isn't a offer!

    Hi everyone. A newbie here. I hope you all can help me. I have a small junk/debris removal service based in Asheville, NC and I'd like to get some Insurance company contracts for hurricane and ice storm cleanup in the southeast (ie. a big crescent shape from louisana to the NC coast, and everything south.) I saw some of my neighbors being price gouged in FL in 2004 and I don't want to be associated iwth "contractors" who do that. I really believe that I can charge a fair price, help the victims, and still make a good living. Can any of you give me some help and/or suggestions on winning Insurance companies' business?

    Any help is very much appreciated and I thank you for it in advance

    Thanks,

    Jesse

    PS. I forgot to mention that by "cleanup" I mean removal of fallen trees, general debris, etc....not water mitigation or anything like that....I AM insured for demolition as well, but I just prefer to do that close to home due to all the variables.

    Thanks Again For Your Help,

    Jesse

    AS Jim Flynt use to say "Know before you go". I hope everyone has a copy of any and all fee schedules they will be working under along with something on a piece of paper which clearly outlines when you get PAID!!!

    I only work for companies which I already have a prior relationship with. I know their checks always clear the bank and I always get paid propmptly.

    Joe:

    It's nice to be noticed. This economy killed the ole small town law business. Everyone needs a lawyer they just don't have the money to pay one right now. I have been climbing roofs all summer in Atlanta and became just another "lurker" on CADO. Thought it might be a good time to jump back into the CADO fray again.


    LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP!!

    Jesse, I believe those cleanup crews are contrcted through FEMA. My brother has a small construction company, and he put out a couple crews under his bond. And I believe he said they contract with FEMA. You might call FEMA and see if they can direct you.  I can tell you that the bond and insurance  is substantial, and just like with adjusting, no promise of work.

    Welcome back Alan, your contribution has been missed except for the sparce few notes in the last 8-10 months or so. As things look, it is a good time for one with experience to get back to the adjusting field. looks like some of this may be pretty close to your turf too.
