collective knowledge which I use in my company’s daily activities in consulting and coaching collision repairers across the country.
My company, Auto Damage Experts (ADE), provides a myriad of services such as pre-repair inspections/assessments, in-process repair monitoring, post-repair
inspections, diminished value assessments and pre-purchase inspections. ADE clients include insurers, collision repairers, legal professionals and the individual consumer, which enables ADE representatives to be recognized as truly independent and qualified to act as appraisers, umpires and expert witnesses throughout the country.
