Mitchell Releases Next Generation Collision Estimating and Reference Guides

Mitchell International’s newly released Next Generation Collision Estimating and Reference Guides now contain Paint and Materials and Air Bag information for new model vehicles, providing technicians and estimators with a comprehensive supplement or stand-alone reference that gives them the tools and information they need for a more efficient repair process.

One of the new resources included in the Guides is the Air Bag Quick Reference information. According to Mitchell, this information will help technicians and estimators quickly access critical airbag procedures like disabling, activating and system operation check instructions, which helps shops work safely on new model vehicles.

Similarly, the Quick Reference Paint and Materials information refines shop repair processes by improving the workflow for new vehicle refinish estimates, even if the shop is not using an electronic estimating system, Mitchell says. Along with increased workflow efficiency, access to this information in the Guide will help to minimize costly and time-wasting supplements.

Mitchell’s Collision Estimating and Reference Guides are available for purchase through or by calling (800) 238-9111, ext. 8508.
