Insurance Adjusters Ultimate Gear Checklist
As claims adjusters, we often spend extended amounts of time out on jobs. That’s why being prepared and equipping ourselves with the gear we need is so important.
“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”
– Alexander Graham Bell
Working adjusting jobs requires preparation. There are many things we need to have in order to successfully fulfill our responsibility. We need the appropriate work clothing, we need a vehicle to get us to the job (see our post on transportation) and we need the right tools to help us complete the task at hand.
This is a list of some of the most important things we need to carry with us to adjusting jobs. Though a list like this cannot ever be truly comprehensive, this is a great start.
For work on a two-story steep, we recommend a 24-foot extension or telescoping ladder.
Sometimes the 35-foot measure for smaller jobs, and 100-foot measure for large jobs.
Having your hands free to climb a ladder and maneuver around the roof (or just walking through a job site) is essential. We can’t rave enough about BullyBag pouches. They’re just awesome.
Our Pick: BULLYBAG Ultra Pouch (Get 10% off with your AdjusterZone Gold Member discount!)
Having gloves will save your hands from being burned and any other wear-and-tear from daily work. We recommend using a pair that has grip to help with ladder climbing.
If you are an AdjusterZone Gold Member remember to take advantage of the member discounts (listed on the Gold Member page) from BullyBag, SteepGear, The Goat, HippLock and more.
Pro tip: if you own or manage an adjusting firm, we recommend checking out BullyBag’s New Hire Onboarding Program – they’ll customize a new hire pack for you and mail everything to you at a discount.
