3 Replies and 2200 Views Daily Claims  2200  3 Started by  JimGary Since in my opinion, I think the year may be over, I went to digging up some daily work. Started getting some pretty good assignments. Got a response from a vendor to an inquiry about handling some claims. This is a good lesson for those who will work anyone just for the experience. This vendor offered $50 a file, not good but not a deal breaker as long as I have others at a good rate. I recd the contract, the vendor does not pay if they do not get payed by the carrier.&160; The adjuster is out...

21 Replies and 5854 Views Too Many Adjusters???  5854  21 Started by  JimGary
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
There have been numerous posts regarding the number of adjusters entering the property field. Believe or not, there seems to be a shortage of experienced auto adjusters. For those property guys with auto experience sitting on the sidelines, you might let your vendor know of your experience and get deployed on an auto assignment. Not as long or profitable as a property assignment, but pays the bills. Just a thought. JWG
