The Stan Miller Story –
Stan Miller’s decision to come “above ground” came some 30 years ago… after being buried for the third time while installing under sewer lines! Once you lay under a pile of dirt, now knowing if anyone can dig you out, you quickly learn to evaluate profit versus the risk of losing your future. I said, “it’s time to find a new line of work”. And that’s what got me into the construction game.
As the years passed I built homes, shopping centers, steel buildings and did a ton of remodeling and repair work. Out of this grew the hands-on experience of seeing how in the dark most people were when it came to dealing with and recovering from an insurance loss.
I first worked with insurance adjuster’s as a building contractor, asking questions such as “How in the world can I do this job with the small amount of money in insurance company is paying?” and “Why aren’t you paying for the whole roof, instead of just a patch job?”
As the years went by, I soon learned the insurance company would pay what it actually costs to get the job done; and that yes, you can have a whole roof if you know how to go about the process of properly substantiating your claim. All it takes is the proper documentation and the knowledge to deal with the insurance adjuster. With all this information under my belt I went to chase hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes.
I spent two years in South Carolina after Hugo struck, doing hurricane insurance recovery and rebuilding all sorts of things, from courtrooms for nine judges to three historical homes that were barely saved from the bulldozer.
One of the experiences I gathered from the storm became my idea to write informative books for the insured. Three years later I have twelve books in print that are giving people the information they need to recover from an insured loss. I have also gone one step further and how hold seminars that end with question and answer sessions to give the insured the information they need “secrets the insurance company didn’t tell you!”
After the 1994 tornado in Lancaster, Texas I was invited to conduct a seminar for the Historical Preservation Society. When I was introduced, a lady to whom I had sent one of my books stood up and said, “I received one of Stan Miller’s books on Wednesday, I met my insurance adjuster on Thursday and was paid $30,000 more due to my first reading his book.
