Tips for choosing a public adjuster
A public adjuster is required to be licensed by the State of Florida. Request their license information and double-check it on the state website or contact the Office of Florida’s Chief Financial Officer via email form with your request. Do not hesitate to pose questions about the public adjuster’s background:
- How long have you been in this line of work?
- How many insurance claims have you helped process?
Here at Altieri Transco American Claims members of our public adjuster team have upward of thirty years of experience that allow us to bring expertise and unique skills to the table.
References from former clients
It is in your best interest to request references and follow up by reaching out to verify their satisfaction with all services provided in their claim. Review social media testimonials on the public adjuster as well.
Membership in professional organizations
Verify the adjuster and office are members of a professional organization like the National Associate of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) and the Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (FAPIA).
Questions you should ask a public adjuster
- Have you handled this type of insurance claim before?
- Has your office previously worked with my insurance provider?
- Will you handle my insurance claim or will a team handle the process?
- Do I still need to communicate with the adjuster assigned by the insurance company?
Take time to find the right public adjuster
Make sure you feel comfortable with your choice in public adjuster and their company. Are your personalities a good match? Will your insurance claim status requests receive a quick response?
Read everything you can find
