Effective Collision Repair Negotiation Starts with Education, Training
Featuring John Shoemaker
Automotive repair industry veteran John Shoemaker writes in a recent Aftermarket Business World™ article that, “ … we need to rethink the way we discuss repairs with insurers. We need to step away from negotiating a repair based on opinion and desire, to educating how a repair should be accomplished using OEM processes.” He goes on to cite examples of how using OEM-specified repair procedures helped to turn the tables and easily convince an insurance adjuster to accept the shop’s recommendations, which were based on OEM-direct information. We couldn’t agree more.
That’s why we’re proud to offer the most up-to-date, unedited OEM automotive repair information in the industry, trusted by more than 400,000 technicians worldwide.
And with our enhanced Estimate Integration, you’ll never miss a required OEM repair again. When Estimate Integration is activated, it analyzes your collision estimate line-by-line in seconds, and boldly displays corresponding OEM Procedures, OEM Alerts, and Vital Repairs, all on a single screen – enabling you to add the required parts, procedures, and labor up front, resulting in fewer supplements to the insurance adjuster. Plus it works with the three major estimating systems – CCC One®, Mitchell Estimating, and Audatex Estimating – to ensure OEM accuracy and compliance.
