The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) is once again partnering with the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) to provide the highest quality industry-focused education available.

Auto Appraisal and Diminished Value Tampa, Florida

As part of this series of seminars, David Smith of Auto Damage Experts has been asked to address the ever-increasing importance of Post Repair Inspections (PRI), and why body shop owners should embrace their role in the industry.

Smith will educate shop owners and technicians on the rapidly evolving changes in technology and subsequent liabilities that affect the industry. He will train on what to look for in a PRI, and how to make sure that your shop receives an A+ rating every time.

Industry statistics suggest that more than 60% of all repairs performed in America are found to have inadequate or unsafe work being delivered to the customer. At best, this clearly affects the value to the consumer… and could very well affect the safety of them and their loved-ones.

“We are living in a period of time where the quality of repair is under greater scrutiny than ever”, says Smith. Shops, owners and even technicians are being named in lawsuits where proper repair procedures have taken a back seat to speed and cost-cutting activities.

SCRS offers Smith’s seminar, “Why you should embrace post-repair inspections” as a vital element of providing the highest quality care for your customer, and at the same time, providing the utmost in protection for shop owners and technicians. Consider this session a must-attend.

SRCS is well known as the largest national trade association solely dedicated to representing and supporting collision repair facilities and their technicians in North America.
