2016 Collision Repair Industry Snapshot Survey Now Open

The collected data will be compared to previous benchmarks. Trends over the years will be analyzed, with results published and shared with the industry.

The Collision Repair Industry Snapshot Survey, co-sponsored by the Collision Repair Education Foundation and I-CAR, has launched and is now open for responses from collision shop owners and managers. The collected data will be compared to previous benchmarks. Trends over the years will be analyzed, with results published and shared with the industry.

In order to touch the entire industry both within the Foundation and I-CAR customer base as well as externally, the electronic survey, which is intended only for shop owners or managers, will be distributed via various vehicles including:

  • Industry publications
  • Information providers
  • I-CAR Industry Alliance partners newsletters
  • Industry co-ops and buying groups
  • Associations’ newsletters
  • Large paint distributors and others

It is estimated that this survey will be distributed electronically to over 20,000 shop managers and owners (one from each location.) Survey respondents can enter to be eligible to win one of three American Express Gift Cards valued at $300, $200 and $100 respectively.

All responses will be kept confidential and results will be reported in aggregate; respondents will not be contacted; and the list will not be sold or shared.

Collision shop owners or managers (one per location) are invited to take the survey at this link: http://www.cvent.com/d/8vqmtp?refid=7445.

Any specific questions regarding the survey can be directed to the Collision Repair Education Foundation at [email protected].
