Estimating Service Overview

Our Xactimate estimating service will help you improve estimate “turnaround” times and reduce costly omissions. In addition, you will improve your cash flow by reducing average collection times.

1. Send us the job information through our order form. We will review each damage scope carefully for costly omissions to help you create more accurate, more consistent, and more profitable Xactimate estimates.  You can choose your desired turnaround option before you checkout (Expedited 1-Day or Standard 1-2 Day). When you place an order, you will put a deposit down that will count toward your estimate.

2. One of our Estimators will write the Xactimate estimate. If there is a need to discuss the Xactimate estimating project, our estimator will reach out via email or phone to discuss. We are available at all times to answer your questions and we’ll work with you to get your Xactimate estimate exactly how you want it (including any revisions).

3. You “approve” the estimate and we invoice you for the balance (if applicable). Once the estimate is approved, we will provide you with the ESX file. Payment for invoices is due “upon receipt.” We may require at our discretion “in-progress” payment for larger estimating projects.

What’s needed to get started:

  • The Scope of Work, Measurements, and Diagram
  • Digital Photos (Optional)
  • Other Relevant Documention (Optional)

Supplement Service (Full-Service Only)

This service will help you improve supplement “turnaround” times and reduce costly omissions. In addition, you will improve your cash flow by reducing average approval and collection times.

1. We write the Xactimate estimate supplement. We will review each damage scope carefully for costly omissions to help you create more accurate, more consistent, and more profitable Xactimate estimate supplements.  All Supplement service orders are “expedited” which means that you will receive our supplement estimate draft within 1-business day. Once you “approve” the supplement, we will proceed to the next step.

2. We submit the supplement to the insurance company. Once you approve the estimate, we submit the supplement to the insurance company and follow-up with the adjuster on your behalf to get the supplement “approved” so you can get paid faster. Most supplements are approved within 7-10 business days.

If additional negotiation is needed, our estimator will get your approval before settling with the adjuster on any other amount than specified in step 1.

What’s needed to get started:

  • Original Scope of Work
  • Scope Supplements
  • Roof Dimensions (A complementary Roof Report with Sketch is included if needed)
  • Other Relevant Documentation
  • Digital Photos (Optional)

“I purchased an estimate from them that came in several thousand over the adjuster report and is in the process of approval. The adjuster said that only one item is in question and is a code verification issue. I am amazed at the speed at which EE processed my estimate and have started my second claim with them. Thank you for being a great asset to our company!!”

The Gold Standard for Restoration Estimating

0
% of Property Claims

Xactimate estimates are the gold-standard in estimate writing for property insurance claims in the U.S. and Canada. In fact, 80% of all property claims are estimated in Xactimate.

Despite their market dominance, Xactimate has a steep learning curve. It requires a lot of time, training, and expertise to write an Xactimate estimate effectively. If you are not using an estimator familiar with the nuances of the Xactimate estimating program, you are likely leaving a ton of money on the table.
