I had the pleasure of helping Chris work on this book and am THRILLED to see some confirmation of the fact that I thought this was an excellent guide to an industry I previously knew nothing about. I had never even heard of catastrophic hail adjusting before working with Chris and over the course of the last few months and by getting to know this book intimately, I truly believe that I could pass muster on a cat line, without ever stepping foot on one!
The advice in this book extend beyond hail adjusting - it is a lesson in how to be the best & most valuable worker you can possibly be using a simple concept: mindset. The mindset Chris teaches you will not only make you a high paid, saught-after Hail Adjuster, but will cross into all aspects of your life and improve it for the better.
Would highly recommend not only to aspiring or existing Hail Adjuster's, but to anyone in the service based industry. Personal, thoughtful, and has real world stories and examples from a decade of work in the industry.
I am just getting started researching field and stumbled across Chris Stanley's name on the internet. After a quick email inquiry asking for advice from Chris and an even faster answer, I immediately realized he is a sincere and passionate promoter of this field. This playbook is an outstanding resource and I will refer to it often. I am enrolling in a course of study on the road to licensing and am entering this field, (thanks to Chris and his valuable information), with my eyes wide open. Check out his podcasts also...Great stuff!
This is a refreshing tool for the hail business! So many mistakes made at the start of a catastrophe hail claim. This book provides both new to the game and vets a great insite to the correct way of doing things right the first time! Both insurance and repair facilities are affected by poor inspections. This book will help to create a smooth flow from the start. Can't say enough good things about it!
Catastrophe Insurance Adjusters have needed a guide like this playbook for a long time. The industry will be better for it if everyone involved would read this book. It's full of information to help guide you through the ever-changing world of a CAT Adjuster and help you succeed. I feel like Chris did a superb job on this book and I urge you strongly to pick you up a copy to read. Very informative Playbook with the "Tools & Tips" you need to be a very successful CAT adjuster.
Barry Barbee - Executive Director of AR Direct here with a review. On a recent flight to Pittsburg, I downloaded the book, couldn't put it down and found it to be very well-written, engaging, and helpful. There's no doubt this "how to" book will help both a rookie and veteran adjuster become better at what they do. Looking forward to more technical based estimating books coming from this author. Highly enjoyed this reading. Thanks, Chris. Job well done! Barry Barbee
Although I haven’t yet finished it, I have gotten both the kindle and the audio version of this book and it has explained and answered so many questions I have had in a practical and easy to understand way. Thanks Chris Stanley for making this information affordable and available!
This is a book for novice and pro alike. It's a truthful look 'behind the curtain' of the life of a hail appraiser/adjuster. I've been in this industry a little over 20 years and I still found a wealth of useful and insightful knowledge. Kudos to the author!
