If you are from an insurance company please answer these questions.
When I am at you clients home doing a 4 point inspection and I find many things wrong why do you suggest that the client calls your inspector?
Are you trying to put yourself out of business?
Is it not in your benefit to know of the problems so you do not insure something that is going to fail or would you rather close your eyes get you commission and let the company worry about the loss they took because something was insured that should not have been.
If the guy that does your 4 point inspections never reports or “finds” any problems then maybe you should call me to do them for you. Isn’t it your duty to at least try to get an accurate inspection? How can you sleep when an inspector finds problems you just send out a guy that will look the other way. Is that any way to repay a company that provides you with a job
The same goes for Wind Mitigation Inspections If one guy always seems to send you reports with the best things checked off maybe you should get a second opinion.
The questions above stem from what happened to me today. I was called by a client to do a Wind Mit, 4 Point and a Citizens Roof Condition Report.
As I was doing the 4 point inspection and the client realized it was not going well she decided to contact her agency. At one point I even suggested she just pay me for the roof condition report and the wind mit even though I had done most of the 4 point. She insisted I continue even though I told her it would not be favorable because she did not want to pay for another one later. By the time I was done and explained her roof would likely fail as well she to my surprise paid me in full and told me her agent was going to send out their own guy. Needless to say I headed straight to the bank to deposit the check and could not help wondering why would an agent screw their own company?
