Hurricane season is fast approaching. The time to get ready is Now!
Hurricanes are major catastrophic events. The demand for adjusters is always overwhelming. New adjusters that have had a difficult time in the past getting hired are now aggressively sought after. Hurricanes are unique opportunities and the widow of opportunity closes quickly. The trick is to be ready in advance.
Here is your “Game Plan:”
1.) Get licensed in your home state
The coastal states will offer Emergency Licenses. These are temporary licenses. You do not apply for these licenses, the Adjuster Firm you are working for takes care of that. To work for an Adjuster Firm, you must first get your adjuster license (All Lines or Property & Casualty).
2.) Get your Xactimate Certificate
Nothing is more important than mastering this software program. Xactimate is truly an amazing tool that calculates the claim for you, you just plug in all the required info and you are given an accurate claim amount. Get this certification, then PRACTICE!
3.) Get on the roster of several Adjuster Firms.
Click on State Requirements to see if you need a license from your state, or if you can go right for your Texas license (reciprocity in over 30 states). Once you have your adjuster license and are certified in Xactimate, get on the roster of several Adjuster Firms closest to you. Click on Contractors (Adjuster Firms)
