Technician and Estimator Staffing, Proven Marketing Strategies, and Much More!
If your area has recently experienced a hail storm, its likely already having some effects on your business, both good and bad. A hail storm can provide a well established body shop with work for a year or more, and even smaller shops will often have the opportunity to generate more revenue and profit in a month than they normally would in an entire year. For a body shop, the key to hail storm riches, as you might expect, is all centered around volume. Since the volume when Repairing hail damaged cars in high volume requires speed, effeciency, and organization, and a good PDR repair vendor should possess and readily display all three of these qualities. In most U.S. markets, hail is simply too infrequent for repair shops to justify the substantial investment required to keep a full-time PDR technician in-house. The situation only worsens when a hail storm hits. As you'd expect, PDR techs in the area, many of them seeing hail damage for the first time, quickly become swamped with work. And while you'll likely have many out-of-town PDR vendors stop by offering suspiciously generous percentages, do you really trust them? Adding to the stress, your staff will need a few weeks to become efficient at estimating hail, creating a bottleneck that sends impatient customers down the street to one of your competitors. Dramatic as it sounds, this is the reality for most repair shops following a hail storm, however, Dealer's Hail & Specialty has developed a system that fills in the void created by a hail storm for shops nationwide.

When a hail storm occurs in your shop's local market or the surrounding area, most body shop and collision center owners find themselves completely unprepared. While collision repairs are likely the foundation upon which your business has been built, and will continue to center around in the future, Mother Nature's visit means your entire business model, for the foreseeable future, has completely changed. Unless for some reason you don't like making money, in which case you needn't read any further. For those that do wish to capitalize on the financial windfall a hail storm creates for a body shop, to do so effectively, you're going to need some help. In the days immediately following a hail storm, your shop can expect to see:
Customers lined up for estimates, and expecting them on the spot
Your shop's phone ringing nonstop
A never ending barrage of aggressive PDR salesmen
Massive delays to your in shop collision work
New collision work needing to come in that can't be scheduled
Estimators not experienced with hail writing unable to keep up
Insurance adjusters coming by at random for hail supplements
Shop staff stressed out
Office staff stressed out
Massive inefficiency throughout your shop, reduced profit margins
Complete chaos in every area of your shop's daily operations
In the insurance world, these hail events are called catastrophes for a reason, and while most larger insurance companies have their own in-house "CAT Teams," most shops lack the proper training and/or personnel to effectively manage the huge influx of claims that will come in after a hail storm. From estimates to repairs, if you want to get the most out of this unique opportunity, you're going to need some help. While your local PDR vendor is probably a great technician, and can handle most of the dents that come in, maybe even a hail car once in while, as local techs are set up for daily routes servicing many different customers, your local PDR guy is not going to be your shop's best option after a significant hail event, especially from a revenue perspective. There will be many PDR company salesmen stopping by your shop promising you varying amounts of riches and wealth. We'll spare you the talk about how much more work a good PDR technician can do than one with average ability, and if you think you'll make the most money by using the company that gives the biggest percentage, we will not take up anymore your time.
