This was a residential (Class 2 | Cat 1) water loss that resulted in the washing machine being detached during the mitigation phase. The washing machine was relocated to the garage for the duration of the mitigation and repair phase. The washing machine has been installed upstairs and the existing drip pan and outlet box valves were compromised as part of the mitigation phase and that aspect required some additional concessions which we will explore.

The AIF Board has chosen to incorporate a complex and obscure scenario that called for specialty line items (e.g.. this is not a standard appliance detach and reset.)

This Insight Sheet exists to clarify how one might invoice for the detaching and resetting of a washing machine. This does not seek to include or make concessions for all equipment and/or activities as it relates to a loss of this nature.

Wrote a new estimate today. I was blown away. I write estimates for everyone, As a Third party estimator I know that Xactimate has a, "feed back for pricing" element. Today! I was amazed that 'install' of a washing machine went from $21.83 to $63.90. I had to confirm it was not a Commercial unit. NOPE! "APP, DryE" to $63.73 install only. THANK YOU! This is finally something I can hire, rather than scratch the floor myself!
