LKQ Corporation and Premiere Services Launch OEM Electronics Replacement Program

Mobile Electronics Quality Replacement Program (QRP) extends company's market beyond aftermarket products to OEM offerings for collision and theft.

Premiere Services, a provider of audio electronics to the insurance industry, has announced that it has partnered with LKQ Corporation to launch a new program that uses OEM electronics as a cost-effective option for mobile electronics replacement.

The Mobile Electronics Quality Replacement Program (QRP) extends the company’s market beyond aftermarket products to OEM offerings for collision and theft.

“We are seeing an increase in OEM collision damage related to the electronic components,” said Laura Puente, president of Premiere Services. “Our QRP program is designed to assist in the parts replacement for this category. The program is also the only one available to the industry that provides tested and certified product with a lifetime warranty. Our insurance partners can also emphasize their commitment to being environmentally friendly by promoting the use of these recycled parts.”

Puente points out that the QRP program helps reduce an insurer’s indemnity costs by offering warrantied parts at half the OEM price. In some cases, Puente says the program could potentially save a policyholder’s vehicle from a total loss. In addition, the QRP parts can be found in CCC ONE.

“By working with Premiere Services, the process helps decrease cycle time and is simplified for insurers and body shops,” said Terry Fortner, vice president of LKQ Corporation. “Collision repair facilities can take advantage of obtaining the warrantied part and installing it themselves or have Premiere Services handle the repair.”

The QRP program is available to any insurer or collision repair facility. Under the program, Premiere Services will ship the part directly to the collision repair facility to complete the repair or can coordinate having its installation team complete the repair. The parts also include a lifetime warranty. Insurers can also emphasize their commitment to being environmentally friendly by promoting the use of recycled parts.
