COVID-19 has impacted the collision repair industry significantly---but it also presents an opportunity for repairers to re-focus and prioritize initiatives that increase competitive advantage and gross margin.
As driving patterns start to resume and number of collisions rise again, competition for "repairable" (vs. "total loss") vehicles will increase, along with the need for advanced repair skills.
Flockhart considers the commercial benefits of embracing a "repair first" ethos, together with the practical steps to make it happen, in this informative webinar.


Key takeaways from this webinar include:


  • Apply four tests to determine if a panel or part can be repaired properly.
  • Qualify the impact a "repair first" capability can have on total gross margin.
  • Quantify the associated potential increase in gross and net profit.
  • Recognize the success factors necessary to achieve and measure results.
  • Identify and prioritize actions to deliver results.


Every month, the Elite Body Shop Academy highlights a topic to keep collision repairers and those that serve them well-informed with relevant information required to be successful in today’s challenging business environment. The webinars feature a wide range of top industry leaders in an interactive and often entertaining format.
