Working For Insurance Companies/Becoming A Vendor


I am a disabled veteran business owner of the Caring Painters; we are a full service painting company located in San Diego, CA. How does one become a Vendor for insurance companies. Some references are as follow: San Diego Regional Airport, City of San Diego, State Parks, La Quinta Inns, and many homes throughout Southern California.

WE would like to be on call and can respond within 24hours. How do we get on Vendors list for this type of work?

Thanks for your anticipated professionalism.

all you need to is call on them in person. Get your foot in with one, do a great job and they will refer you all over town.

I have tried that, shaking hands yesterday with an insurance adjuster, and he stated, "well, you have to be on our preferred vendor list".

Re: Working For Insurance Companies/Becoming A Vendor


I was an adjuster for 15 years and I very rarely recommended a particular painting contractor. In fact, I'm not sure that I ever did. Adjusters are becoming more and more hesitant to recommend contractors, because they don't want to catch hell if the job goes bad. I'm not saying that painters never get recommended, but I suspect you will find it extremely difficult to get those sorts of referrals.
However, they do still recommend contractors that deal in emergency services, such as fire and water restoration. If you want to do insurance work, contact these types of contractors, and offer to sub for them.

Most of these companies have paperwork to fill out and submit along with your insurance information. Just contact them and request their new vendor packet. Good luck.

The thing is, painting alone isn't an insurable item, usually part of a bigger problem fixed by a general contractor.
If you like to spray pigmented shellac on burnt out houses call on generals who specialize in insurance work not the insurance companies.
