Certain key performance indicators, like total loss values, along with repair and labor costs are returning to pre-recession levels. Several factors including cheaper gas and stronger employment have led to this. Severe weather patterns have contributed to more accidents.
With new car sales up, that means that the average cost of repair has increased. Vehicles are built with lightweight materials and more complex construction techniques, as well as newer technology which means new equipment, tools and training are required for repair.
“We are seeing rapid changes in our industry,” said David Byers, CEO of CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts. “For us to continue to deliver the best possible service to our customers and insurance partners, we have to not only keep up, we have to try and stay ahead of the curve.”
