Xactimate Estimating Services
Improve “cycle” times and reduce costly omissions. We will review each damage scope carefully for costly omissions to help you create more accurate, more consistent, and more profitable Xactimate estimates. Turnaround ranges from 24-48 hours.
Improve cash flow and reduce collection times. We will write your Xactimate invoice, you approve the invoice, then we submit the invoice to the insurance company and follow-up with the adjuster to help you get paid faster. Most invoices are settled within 7-10 business days.
Get approvals quickly and maximize the value of your services so you can continue rebuilding without the constant back-and-forth with adjusters. Most supplements are approved within 7-10 business days. We will write the supplement, you approve the supplement, then we submit the supplement to the insurance adjuster, and then follow-up on your behalf until it is approved.
