Hurricane Dean – Info on Adjusting firms working in Mexico, Misc adjuster needs in Mexico

We’ve done a bit of research for those of you asking for information on working losses in Mexico due to Hurricane Dean making landfall in Mexico. While we are not yet staffing for a firm planning to work there, we have done some initial research for adjusters on firms that do work there.

We also include links on visas, work permits, auto insurance needs, internet services you will need and cell phone coverage information. We’ll do additional checking tomorrow should the need arise for additional information and will post it in reply to this topic. Should you have additional information for adjusters wishing to work in Mexico on Hurricane Dean claims, please provide reply comments below we’ll post to aid in their search for work on Hurricane Dean losses. For example, I was not able to locate information on estimatic software used while adjusting claims, book value guides for Mexico which might be helpful to auto adjusters, and a few major other items such as Errors and Omissions coverage for adjusters going over, workers comp coverage issues while working there, and Mexico insurance adjuster license requirements. We’d appreciate any details our readers can provide. Here are the links you may wish to view if your considering assignments:
