      Can anyone tell me if there is a good source for  Auto body/ Insurance  estimator training?
      Quality is more important than price, but of course price is a consideration. 
      We just tragically lost our person who did 100% of this for our shop. 
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Guest host business coach Chris Cotton from Auto Fix - Auto Shop Coaching speaks to increasing shop productivity Virtual shop tour with Tiffany Scherado from Lifetime Transmissions, Broken Arrow, OK The trivia question:  If you own a Ford Pick-Up or a Honda Civic, what statistic are you part of? Dorman gives people greater freedom to fix vehicles by constantly developing new repair solutions that put owners and technicians first. By always innovating, Dorman has led the way in growing the aftermarket. Here you will see a few examples of a Dorman OE Fix. An OE FIX is a Dorman repair solution you can’t get from the original equipment manufacturer. It means they found a situation where they believe the OEM wasn’t giving repair professionals what they wanted, so we fixed it. Everything Dorman does is centered around providing customer value, both in the quality of products, and the creativity of solutions. Our engineers and designers go out of their way to save repair technicians time and save vehicle owners money. Want to really go under the hood?

After 16 years working in the diamond industry, Gilda began her automotive career with Edelbrock in Torrance CA in their purchasing department. From there she joined in my husband's family business and have been there for 25 years.  Russell Crosby is the owner of Russ’s Wrench Auto Repair located in Clinton, NJ. Listen to Russell's previous episodes HERE Key Talking Points
      Technicians- you must be constantly growing technicians, hire out of local high schools/colleges and grow them. Apprenticeships are key.  Shift mindset of the youth- open different pathways besides college education  Don’t wait until you lose a technician to hire a technician- being heavy on technicians leads to other opportunities (satellite location, more efficient). It’s not a risk, it’s an investment. No one complains they have too many techs. Don’t be afraid to have conversations with other technicians- build trust, if it doesn’t work out they will find another job within a day Fear prevents you to go into a new world of greatness- changing positions isn’t comfortable but necessary to grow Emerging technology- the future is here, training for new EV vehicles, start a marketing campaign for new clientele and technicians. Educating customers that hybrids need repairs. Look into charging ports. This is your opportunity to gain lifetime clientele.  Total lifetime spent- customer personal ARO. Motivation isn’t the bill today but the whole driving career. This is a service industry, not a repair business. What is your mission of the business? Investing in their car invests, in their community. Let them know what you do behind the scenes (helping the community). Put the plaques and newspaper clippings in the shop, Be proud and let your customers know. Be the inspiration. Change mindset- we are financial advisors to customer’s investments. Ask customers what their plan is for their vehicle, keeping it forever? Spare car? Are they looking for a new car and need advice?
