NORTHEAST® 2015: Stop Leaving Money on the Table!

Post 98 of 267

“Stop Leaving Money on the Table!”, one of the most highly anticipated education sessions at AASP/NJ’s 38th annual NORTHEAST 2015 Automotive Services Show, is an exclusive look at tips and techniques on how to create a fair and accurate auto body repair estimate. Presented by John Niechwiadowicz of QLC, Inc., and co-hosted by Jerry McNee of Ultimate Collision Repair, this seminar will be available twice during the NORTHEAST 2015 Show taking place March 20, 21 and 22, 2015 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (MEC) in Secaucus, NJ.

“The quality of an auto body estimate has a far-reaching impact on not only the financial health of the collision repair company itself, but also on many other critical aspects of the process,” Niechwiadowicz says. “Company profitability, technician wages, admin staff bonuses, parts issues, vehicle cycle times, shop stress levels and much more can all be affected – positively or negatively – by the accuracy of the damage analysis.”

This very interactive and “hands-on” estimatics workshop covers the techniques that EVERYONE involved in the estimating process needs to know and employ to capture the operations needed to write a fair and accurate damage appraisal. Actual estimates are used to illustrate the vast financial and psychological benefits of incorporating the techniques discussed during the seminar.

AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell is a huge fan of Niechwiadowicz’s work. “We had John come in last year and he did a session that packed the house,” he says. “He has a very unique style that makes shops listen and enables them to bring back a minimum of one or two things to start implementing in their shop immediately.”

“Stop Leaving Money on the Table!” will be presented Saturday, March 21 at 12pm and 3pm. Seating is limited and the cost is $25. Pre-registration is required.
