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 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.
