Shops’ Opportunity to Grade Insurers Ends This Week

Shops’ Opportunity to Grade Insurers Ends This Week

This is the final week for collision repairers to grade insurers in their state via CRASH Network’s Insurer Report Card.

This is the final week for collision repair professionals to grade the performance of the insurance companies in their state, with CRASH Network’s “Insurer Report Card” ending this Friday, Dec. 18.

“The response to this year’s Insurer Report Card has been excellent, but we’d still like to gather perspective from more shops,” said John Yoswick of CRASH Network. “In addition to national results, we will produce state-specific reports for the states in which we have enough participants. We hope this week to add to the number of states in which enough shops have graded the insurers.”

The Insurer Report Card asks collision repairers to grade each insurer based on how well each carriers’ policies and practices ensure quality repairs and customer service. It can be completed in less than three minutes, and all individual shop information will remain confidential.

Shops that complete the Insurer Report Card and provide an email address will be sent the results, at no charge, once they are compiled.

The latest "Who Pays for What?" survey from Collision Advice and CRASH Network indicates that more than three in five shops (61%) say they're researching automaker repair procedures on “all” or “most” of the vehicles they repair, a nine percentage point gain since 2020.

“It’s still not a high enough percentage, because this must be done every time, but at least awareness of this vital step is increasing,” said Mike Anderson of Collision Advice, who conducts the quarterly surveys with CRASH Network. “OEM information is complex, and can change. I recently wrote an estimate on three of the same year and model of vehicles, but the alignment procedures and battery disconnect procedures were different based on trim levels and engine types.”
