Smart Repair Quote From a Digital Photo
In the old days the only way to get a quote for your cars body work damage would have been to take the vehicle to a body shop or an accident repair centre, where a technician would have gone over the possible solutions and costs to solve the issue. Nowadays times have changed both in the repair methods that can be used and the visual quoting techniques employed to generate the costing’s.
Since the rise of the smart repair service the ability of the technician to come to you to give a quote saved many a customer from getting a headache going from one garage to another. This was seen as the first real change in quoting methods, this was then quickly followed by the email quote with the rise of the Internet, and then texting became cheaper so images began being sent for an even quicker response time.
Quoting from a digital photo is a quick and easy way for us to view the damage, assess the possible repair methods and costing’s in a matter of minutes. This quoting method is now the most popular type of quoting procedure we use.
From just one photo we can identify the damaged area of the car see the type of paint required and best possible repair method to use. We can also see by using specific filters if the car has had previous paint jobs that might cause us problems when carrying out the work. All this is carried out in just minutes and depending on how busy we are we aim to reply to quotes sent by text within 1 hour.
Above are some good examples of photos we have been sent by phone texting.
As you can seee from this we can easily identify the colour type, area to be painted and rough time for work to be completed
This advance in quoting techniques has not only help the customer but also us. We now don’t travel all over the county giving quotes we just travel all over doing the jobs instead, making our service a lot more efficient and reducing our lead times by 50%
There’s a lot of pressure at the moment for small business to reduce there carbon foot print, and I cant see a more economic way for us to do that then by this quoting method, On average we have probably reduce our van fuel costs by 25% so more money saved by us and less pollutants in the atmosphere.
So if you need a quote and can take a good photo try our texting system for a quick return within an hour. Send photos to 07966 799721
