srsly? this much work just to estimate? i swear most shops just look at the damage, and see which damaged parts needs to be replaced or can be reused.


lets talk about fraud iinsurance companies own every estimating company lets see 3 hrs to change ft bumper add .3 for fogs 3.2 to paint bumper add 1.1 hr to clear all labor based on 50 an hr wow big profit there .all parts that shops buy are marked up 25% over cost do the math and you will see real quick autobody trade is waste criminal mafia insurance companies leave no profit to even hire people .insurance appraisers guy looks at your car is a moron and is instructed to miss parts by his boss hoping shop just puts cars together and don't feel like calling insurance company to fight over every labor time and paint.all appraisers are instructed to get shop to bondo bumper if they don't agree then write junkyard if they cant find then china imitation part if that's not available then they have to call there freemason supervisor that's away from his desk pounding down some brews at the masonic lodge laughing with his buddies how dumb policy holders are and shops not even realizing how they get bullshitted everyday and don't know
