Where Does it End?


I recently wrote a blog about insurance companies requiring shops to cut corners to lower the auto repair costs. This really happens; however, I like to give my students as many opinions and point-of-views that I can. There is a lot going on out there in the automotive/insurance industries, which makes it hard to determine what is right and what is wrong. It feels like we’ve turned into a gray society, which can become confusing and give us mixed emotions.


Here are a few more twists to consider when forming your opinions. 

It seems like there is a scam every time we turn around.  Auto accidents are no exception, as there are reports of individuals staging auto accidents to collect insurance money.  If insurance companies do not fight against this type of fraud, this will result in higher premiums for everyone.  However, there are also reports of insurance negligence.  Insurance companies are denying claims, which is resulting in many innocent individuals paying the consequences.  Both insurance negligence and accident fraud are reality and is something you will need to consider in the collision repair business.  As an auto appraiser for an insurance company or an estimator for a body shop, you will have to deal with insurance companies and vehicle owners.  It may be a good idea to research and form some beliefs to know where you stand.

Accident Fraud

Insurance Negligence

This is a deep subject for my current students to think about over the summer. They will have to form their own opinions about the industries.

If you would like to learn more about working on cars that have been involved in an accident; frame repair, automotive welding, body repair, plastic repair, panel replacement, prep and painting, and estimating, then you may consider enrolling into our collision repair program. You too can start forming your opinions and decide what angle and industry is a fit for you.

If you're interested in enrolling our collision repair program at Butler, feel free to contact me.
