Licensed inspector ad campaign.

This is a joke, right?

OK, the ad got edited as I was writing this to say that licensed state’s requirements don’t come close to meeting INACHI’s entrance requirements. That’s gonna be debatable.

How do you figure that from this ad?

I hope so to…some of the questions asked on this MB the bike should have three tires----:smiley:

Inspectors attacking inspectors. How clever!

Assuming you’re referring to me, how do I figure what?

I don’t see anything in the ad that compares InterNACHI’s entrance requirements to licensing requirements.

Good one Dale!

Licensing commoditizes inspectors and causes consumers to price shop between equally licensed inspectors. The ad is designed to remind consumers that not all inspectors are equal just because they carry the exact same state license. Some inspectors fulfill requirements above and beyond the bare minimum that is required by law.

If your talking to me John it was a joke----:smiley:

If your talking to Nick, report him to a moderator----:stuck_out_tongue:

No, I guess I really don’t see any comparison either:

The way I interpret the ad, when you “Certify” an inspector today, and put him on the “Find an Inspector” websites today, you’re kind of eating your own words about “Licensing”—:smiley:

I posted the following in another thread earlier today regarding a recent quote that stuck in my craw at the time it was made & it still does:

I see no need to attack other inspectors of any kind.

The Marines have a lable for this:

blue falcon — negligent or malicious disregard for another servicemember’s career, comfort, or time; often for personal gain

Correct. In licensed states… all inspectors carry the same minimum standard license. But that doesn’t mean that all inspectors are equal. Some go above and beyond the bare minimum required by law.

I agree with Nick.

This campaign forces you to ask the question as to how the public…on the first day of licensing in (God forbid) Missouri…a consumer is to be able to look at the brand new bicycle (license) and be able to tell the difference between a 20+ year Dan Bowers and Wendy with her new flashlight.

It does dramatize the “dumbing down” effect that licensing has. Not every licensing law has had the decades to mature as Texas (while still lacking in many regards, itself).

…and “Blue Falcon” is being kind and non-pornographic.

Fine…then don’t run that ad anywhere it can be seen in Texas and I’m good to go with it.

Excellent point. Texas is probably the most striking example of commoditization. Highest requirements (roughly 6 times the average licensed state), yet one of the lowest average fee structures. Do Texas inspectors charge 6 times everyone else? Nope.
