 Hey guys!! I just wanted to point out to our newly licensed brethren that your camera is one of the most important pieces of equipment an adjuster MUST take care of.

With that being said, that $100.00 camera / that $900.00 camera is absolutely worthless when you have dead batteries.

................................................................................................................

As adjusters, we are often the only person the insured sees from the insurance company. So how the insured sees you is how they see the insurance company. So we need to ensure that we look professional when we show up to their property. The folks at The Working Person's store understand this and offer all the best in name brand work clothes from DICKIES and CARHARTT. To sweeten the deal even more they offer FREE SHIPPING, it can't get any better than this !!

................................................................................................................

As adjusters we are all self employed and as such we go through alot of office supplies. Why patronize the big box chain stores that offer sky high prices and minimal customer service. Go through BULK OFFICE SUPPLIES.COM and have your supplies shipped right to your front door.

When we are on a risk, more often than not we are in a dwelling that has sustained significant to extreme damage whether from a hurricane/tornado/flood/etc.....

The adjusting professional takes his/her safety very seriously and your eyes are no exception. Check out the multiple styles of safety glasses/work gloves/worg boots available through DeWalt.  There is no reason that safety can't be stylish at the same time.

 

Good luck and stay safe in 2013!!
