Default Wind Mit form

Just wondering what programs or options are out there to fill out the wind mit form. I use HIP, but I do not want to use the iphone app. Should I buy a pdf filler to fill out the form or buy a program like windsurance? and with an online program like that do I need to get the clients signiture online, how do I get them to fill out the form if I do it all online? thanks in advance for any tips.

Make your own. best $19.99 you will ever spend. Free tools alone worth it.

Quite a few around here have listened to my wisdom and are using it.

I have the newest acrobat and still use http://www.pdfill.com/ Easy Peasy

No way man Descriptions of photos. If they do not know what they are looking at I sure am not going to teach them their job. FOrm does not require descriptions and I have NEVER been asked for them.

WHY DO MORE THAN YOU MUST??????????????????? Fluff.....

There is none, if you choose, or as much as you feel necessary in the App.
I personally don't label anything and have never been asked to do so..

John Shishilla has a form for sale that is similar to the one I made: http://www.magnuminspections.com/PDF/2013_WM_sample.pdf


You can do as little as you like, but don't ***** about having to only charge 75 bucks!

On a side note: Do yourselves a favor and DO NOT submit your final reports in it's editable form, where fields can be altered! For Acrobat users there is an "action" that you can create that will flatten the form and lock it from further edits, w/o the need to password protect the fill-able form.

Cheers!

I may have to start charging for advise!

This is what I send to my clients:

Quote:
Here is the completed wind mitigation inspection form.

Prior to submitting this form to your agent, please fill in the name of your insurance company and policy number on page one. Then, click “Save”. Send that to your insurance agent.

Print page four only. Sign and date that, then, fax it to your agent. For whatever reason, the insurance companies do not accept a digital signature, but accept a signed version faxed.

If there are any questions, please call and Thank You for your business!

We have all forms signed on a tablet(windows, android or ipad). It makes the agent's job easier.

This is an actual signature(electronically with a pen/stylus) not a software based digital signature.

Once you save it and transmit it digitally......................................... ......

I do it the way I described above, because Citizens asked me to.

Are implying that smoke signals are not permitted? That is discrimination.
