Now here's how it works.
When you get called by a vendor for State Farm work, you simply visit the On The Road section of CADO and make an entry stating that you have are going to ________,(Fill in the location), for which ever vendor it is, (Pilot, Crawford, Worley, etc), for State Farm.
I saw only one entry for the Ft Wayne wind storm for SF, but not the vendor. Had I looked earlier, possibly I might be out on the road instead of swatting mosquitos in my back yard!
Please, Guys. It won't hurt you one bit to help your old pals out here with this bit of info.
Think of CADO has our own grapevine. The more we use it, the more powerful and useful it becomes.

Well, WE all appreciate your input and the last hit it on the head regrading deployment of adjusters. For those not in the top 10 please keep the information flowing as to many are living on promises.
And to those others it does take some contacts to get there

Good point Phantom,
The infamous rotation has always been a thing of mystery. I suspect that each of the vendors truly believes they are next up. Was it ever explained to the vendors how this system was to work? A recent case in point was the spring storms.
The DFW series of storms was split amongst several vendors, while the San Antonio storm was Crawfords alone. Worley was all by itself in New Orleans and Pilot got Shreveport. And the phenomenon continues. Like you allude, are there vendors more effective with their marketing than others? And vice versa, regardless of the "quality of their adjusting personnel"?
Which brings the question, which vendor is getting the lions share of the work? Are they then the better marketers?

One can only get the feel of the so called rotation by keeping tabs on each vendor's top ten adjusters. It is questionable why the BIG secret about the rotation. It is ashame that information is not out in the open for all to know. I think at this point, you can assume all may not be equal!
Anyway, State Farm is a great company no matter what some of the boys and girls that couldn't cut the mustard for them say. We know, don't we?
Good luck to you. My burgers need turning again!

It would be dastupid not to utilize this wonderful grapevine for sharing vital work information that can and does put money in our bank accounts.
Who cares? I do. As well as all the rest of the folks that don't mind doing Lil Ed's chores. Trying to decipher the which vendors turn it is, continues to perplex every soul out here. And the sooner we can find out who gets the call, the sooner each of us can call the vendor and plead our poverty stricken case.
For those folks that don't care for Lil Ed's big ol'insurance company, well, that's fine. Birds of a feather must flock together. There are certain carriers I don't care much for either.
But the sharing of pertinent information is vital to us all.

Why would anyone care??

Now that we have had some storm activity, could we use this thread to share what towns/cities that State Farm has gone NATCAT with, and, more importantly, what vendor/s has been called for troops?
Say for example; Omaha, or Lincoln, or Tulsa, or..., well you get the idea.
The sooner this information gets out here, the sooner we can prod the vendors for work.
