National General Adjuster, Heavy Equipment Specialist

Jeffrey T Allen

National General Adjuster, Heavy Equipment Specialist


Jeffrey grew up in Central California. He is the grandson of a farmer and a rancher and a heavy equipment mechanic. He plowed potatoes and picked plums, cut peaches and shaken almond trees before he was in high school. He understands the real value in wiping his hands on his shirt before a handshake.

With a life in claims, he has handled claims from the North Slope of Alaska to Southern Florida, Southern California to Rhode Island and in Mexico and Canada. He has spent the last 23 years criss-crossing America managing farm and heavy equipment claims and writing appraisals as a field adjuster. He has also spent 10 years on a large loss agriculture mobile equipment team and 10 years in litigation support on agriculture teams.

Jeffrey is determined to see that that our farms, ranches and dairies get their losses resolved quickly and fairly and get back to work.
