This is a residential (Class 3 | Cat 1) water loss. The scope of what this Insight Sheet seeks to explore is limited, thus a detailed back story is not required in this case.

Hauling activities occur on almost every job imaginable. As this is a universal activity in the restoration industry, the Board of Actionable Insights Forum sought to highlight the details associated with this line item. Although we have chosen to present it as a Mitigation Insight Sheet, this could also be categorized among the Repair Insight Sheets as well.

By design, the Insight Sheet Database does not dissect pricing. We are not in the business of telling contractors or Xactware what their prices should be. We are simply highlighting the instructions given in the additional item info of the DMO PU line item to make sure you are utilizing it correctly.

This Insight Sheet exists to clarify how one might invoice for the most basic hauling activities on any mitigation or repair job. This does not seek to include or make concessions for all equipment and/or activities as it relates to a loss of this nature.

This sheet is not available?

@ChrisCole it should look something like this. If it does not, then you may not be logged in or your subscription is expired.

This was one of my suggestions, good job on this. Worst line in Xactimate in my opinion. Carriers love the partial load options LOL

I ran into an adjuster who required that we use a single pickup load for about 150 sq ft of 2 coat plaster over gypsum board. I found a table online that listed the approximate weights of typical building materials, and successfully argued for a tandem trailer based on the WEIGHT of the materials involved. this is great for brick, tile, plaster, and I will try it soon against the partial pickup load. Also, we are often able to argue for the same when the volume of the material being removed is larger than the vehicle they want you to use(most commonly carpet...).
