I agree Michael but the standards are being set and I have yet to see a company who likes to increase work for the same amount of money. But that company as with all companies have a choice, either comply with the new standard or be left behind.
It is like the chicked and egg comment, which came first? So did inspectors just do this or were demands made of them to comply. I am sure after a client has to call the inspector back a few times to get the correct information needed to obtain insurance there are three unhappy people. One is the agent who has to keep calling, the owner thinks your incompetent for need to keep returning and the inspector is upset that he has to keep returning.
So to defeat these three items, the present indepth form were developed. Its not about getting the client the cheapest price, its about stating the facts. It is what it is, plain and simple.
As I have stated earlier, some saw the writing on the wall as to what is going to be needed in the future and started implementing those needs now, so that they would be ahead of the game and leaders in insurance inspections. Guess what, they are leaders in the insurance inspection industry.
Stop looking at where it’s at, try and determine where it going and be the first to get there. Playing catch up leads to destruction of a company.
