On Nov. 10th, more than 80 industry professionals gathered at the Radisson Hotel in Roseville, Minn., to hear industry expert Mike Anderson of Collision Advice present “Write it Right: Estimating Best Practices.” The seminar, a joint endeavor of the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Minnesota (AASP-MN) and Axalta Coating Systems, was a huge success with the sold-out crowd.

The seminar provided attendees with information and resources to support and justify their position on what it takes to restore a vehicle back to pre-accident condition. Highlights of the seminar included:
