Are you getting underpaid for body labor?

How often are you repairing a six-hour dent and only being paid four hours of labor? What if you could provide precise damage documentation measuring the damage down to the fraction of a centimeter?

How much money could you add to your bottom line with this technology?

When deciding to invest in your business, it is essential to determine the possible return on that investment. Luckily, when investing in a new piece of software that will help you add sales dollars to each repair, the calculation can be pretty straightforward.

How does $84,540 a year sound? Let’s walk through this example…

Officer worker using a calculator.

Let's consider a shop that does 75 repairs per month with an average Body Labor sales rate of $58/hour. If they were to increase their labor hours sold by only 2 hours per RO, they would add $139,200 to the shop's annual top-line sales.

More hours sold means more dollars paid to the technician, and this is great news because all shops want to do what they can to take great care of their technicians. For example, this shop's average flagged hour rate for their technicians is $22/hour. So adding just 2 hours using the Dents.co app would add $52,800 in additional annual compensation for the technician staff.

Our software isn't free, but at $155/month, there is still plenty of room to add significantly to your bottom line. Let's assume the same shop's average severity is $3,700, and their average profit margin is 12%. Adding $84,540 using the Dents.co app is a more than 21% increase to their bottom line!

Additional Top Line Sales = $139,200

Cost of Labor = $52,800

Software Cost = $1,860

Total Additional Profit = $84,540 / Year

Find Your ROI

How does this work?

The Dents.co app can add consistency and profitability to your estimates by enabling you to price the repair based on the size of the damage instead of just a guess of how many hours it should be. Gone are the days of comparing a dent to the size of your hand or a credit card to determine the repair cost.

Estimating damage repair times based on size allows you to capture additional repair hours by enabling you to:

  1. Standardize the repair hours based on the scale of the repair
  2. Negotiate confidently with evidence-based pricing.
  3. Eliminate lost estimate dollars caused by new estimators that haven't learned how to capture repair times effectively.
