Insurers And OEMs Discuss Vehicle Diagnostic Scans In Collision Repair

Mike Anderson, Collision Advice leads a panel discussion around the needs and requirements of pre and post repair scans in Collision Repair. Insurers: State Farm and Farmers OEMs: Audi, Honda, Toyota, Fiat Chrysler, Nissan, GM Vendor: Collision Diagnostic Services . "There is a lot of talk in the industry about whether or not it is necessary to scan every vehicle, pre- and post-repair. Do we really need to perform a calibration on vehicles such as Toyota or Honda? And what if it is not even occupied? Are there parameters to these items?" stated Mike Anderson, president/owner of Collision Advice. "Quite often the OEM's tell us in their repair information that we need to do these things, however insurers do not always pay for this work, and shops sometimes wonder if it is really necessary. This panel discussion is intended to educate all parties in the collision repair industry - insurers, shops, and technicians."
