Ok - all I can say is never live next door to a loss adjuster mate - there will always be a shitload of crap on the street outside on the street for him to inspect ( not sure how it gets there - teleportation? ) Live next door to Onslow if you can - the worst you can expect is a Cortina on bricks on his drive
To be fair your profession would be in the transport etc (I don't assume to know the ins and outs of every profession, and too many to list) but there has to be ways to do things better than we are now. It isn't exactly great for your quality of life or physical health (back etc) if you are doing those long journeys so often.
Somebody in the team I worked with used to do occasional long distance travel to Q&A accommodation. Essential travel, obviously, necessary for the sake of covering against liability and but if we had more joined up relationships maybe we could have relied on partner agencies' quality assurance more often.
It’s not something we can solve with top down utopianism, the solution needs to be bottom up.
But there are so many areas of current our way of life where financial factors have led to huge unnecessary waste.
