The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) recognizes that there are many legitimate operations and services our technicians provide that go unrecognized in the estimate development and final billing processes. The purpose of this document is to aid repair facility personnel in formulating the most accurate repair plan in the estimate preparation process, to minimize the need or expense of a supplement. This document is intended to be used as a guide to develop and maintain processes performed in your repair facility, and serves as a reminder of steps that may be performed during the repair process. This document does not suggest, or promote, that your shop can or should charge for each item listed; and is only intended to be a reminder for repair operations that are performed in your facility. The document does not contain pricing, quantities, labor hours or any additional information as that should be determined based on your facility’s individual requirements.
The Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG) is an initiative that was developed to help improve the quality and accuracy of collision repair estimates, through proactive feedback from the collision repair industry and other “end users” to the Information Providers (IPs) about vehicle-specific errors, ommisions or inaccuracies in the database and labor times. The DEG is a free service that was created, and is equally funded and maintained by the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) and the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers (AASP).
RDN was formed to provide news and information from a vantage point that would unabashedly be catered to those in the collision repair business. The stories and focus will not be influenced by anything other than keeping the businesses that perform collision repair connected to the information that matters most to them. A well-informed industry is a more viable industry. We believe that “connecting the dots” is important, and that stories should contain more than just what is happening, but also foster an understanding of why it matters. Our vision is one where collision repair businesses are empowered by the information at their fingertips.
Our vision is to promote, support and encourage exemplary businesses committed to the future of the collision repair industry, and we’ve found that video is an exceptionally useful tool to reach broad audiences and effectively communicate that information. SCRS’ channel features a growing library of videos including SCRS Education Committee presentations, panels, technical and operational discussions, and even coverage from the SEMA Show events. Subscribe to be notified as new material is released.
SCRS is focused on finding solutions to address the skills gap we are facing in the industry. We want to help our members connect with the future generation of our industry. The collision repair industry is rich with career opportunities, and SCRS is committed to connecting individuals seeking rewarding careers with employers who are looking to add to their business. The SCRS Career Center is the best way to promote your open positions to qualified candidates for your business; and a great way to reinvest in the collision community by helping to build awareness of opportunity within the collision repair profession.
