An insurance field inspector is responsible for conducting residential and commercial property inspections for the purpose of processing insurance claims. They schedule appointments for visual inspections, home inspections, occupancy inspections, and more and document their findings in detailed reports. They are required to collect measurements, take photographs, transcribe interviews, and request supporting documents, when needed, as part of their inspection services. Adjusters may provide valuations, property assessments, and investigations on behalf of insurance companies, mortgage companies, financial institutions, or other corporate entities. Insurance field inspectors work in the field and often are hired as independent contractors.
