VRS Labor Rate Survey Launches in Arkansas
Jan. 27, 2016—On Wednesday, National AutoBody Research (NABR) announced the launch of its Arkansas VRS Labor Rate Survey. The online survey is free for all Arkansas collision repair shops.
The VRS Labor Rate Survey provides collision repairers with statewide labor rate data.
"There is a significant problem with labor rates in the state of Arkansas," said the anonymous collision repairer survey sponsor. "The rates insurers pay are not only below the market price but also not sufficiently profitable for shops, who must continually invest in training, tools, equipment, and certifications to repair today's increasingly advanced vehicles. Finally, we have a solution in the VRS, an independent survey and complete technology to help shops price their labor profitably and prove through documentation what the real market labor rate is for any area in our state."
