BodyShopBids Launches New Insurance Partner Program

New program is available to insurance companies across the United States with or without a direct repair network.

BodyShopBids, a website and mobile application that lets consumers receive custom auto repair estimates by photo, announced today the public launch of its Insurance Partner Program. BodyShopBids currently has five insurance carriers participating in pilot programs across several states.
Accessible for free via iPhone, Android and the web, BodyShopBids connects consumers in need of car repair with body shops with available capacity. After uploading a few photos of their damaged vehicle, consumers receive a selection of nearby body shops to choose from within 24 hours. Consumers select a body shop based on location, price, reviews and other factors, all from a computer, tablet or smartphone.
For insurance providers with a DRP network, BodyShopBids says it will work exclusively within that network. For insurance providers without their own DRP network, BodyShopBids says it will provide its own verified network of body shops.
BodyShopBids claims that every shop in its network has been “personally vetted by company staff to ensure high quality and exceptional service.” Each shop also has its own profile page, where users can see customer reviews, photos and videos of the shop, an interview with the shop owner and all industry certifications.
“The insurance industry is hungry for innovative ways to use technology to increase customer retention,” said Brad Weisberg, founder and CEO of BodyShopBids. “The BodyShopBids system answers this need by shortening the claims processing cycle and providing an unrivaled customer experience.”
The BodyShopBids mobile app is available for download on both Android and iPhone and devices.
