“Some of the most useful information that trade associations---in any industry---can offer is data on labor rates,” said Cathi Webb, executive director of NATA.
The association is asking Oregon body shops---whether a member of NATA or not---to complete the survey by Nov. 15. For those familiar with their shop's labor rates and mark-up practices, the survey should take less than five minutes to complete.
Individual shop information will be kept confidential; only aggregate data will be released to those who participate and provide a valid email address.
Shops can take the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NATAcollision
