National AutoBody Research Releases VRS Labor Rate Survey for Pennsylvania

The free online survey, sponsored by the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Pennsylvania, is now available to all Pennsylvania collision repairers on the NABR website.

NABR-logoNABR announced the launch of the Pennsylvania VRS Labor Rate Survey, sponsored by the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Pennsylvania (AASP-PA).

The free online survey is available to all Pennsylvania collision repairers on the NABR website.

“We’re excited to bring the VRS Labor Rate Survey and system to Pennsylvania,” said Jeff Walter, executive director of AASP-PA. “The survey provides collision repairers the opportunity to report their true labor rates, not rates determined for them. And it is conducted by an independent, third-party company who are experts in collision repair labor rates. Then, shops can gain access to the VRS search tools and calculators, enabling them to find the right rate for their individual shop.”

Sam Valenzuela, president of NABR, added, “The VRS is ultimately about consumer care and safety. We see a link between consumer safety and labor rates. Collision repairers need to be paid the right rates in order to afford the training, equipment, and certifications necessary to properly and safely repair today’s vehicles, which increasingly use new technology, new manufacturing and construction techniques, and advanced materials. So it’s very important for all Pennsylvania collision repairers to know and collect the right rates for their individual shop, and the survey and Variable Rate System help tremendously with that.”

To see the Variable Rate System for themselves, any collision repair owner or general manager may request a free, no-obligation demo of the VRS to see firsthand how the system can help them charge and collect sufficiently profitable labor rates and get paid for more not-included procedures.

With the addition of Pennsylvania, the VRS Labor Rate Survey is now active in eight of the top 10 most populated states in the country. Pennsylvania becomes the 16th state to launch the survey, joining Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas and Utah.
