Or perhaps you are attending an event and need some added warmth, you’ll have this blanket in your car. You will be especially be thankful you are prepared for a car emergency if it occurs in a more a remote area or during inclement weather.
A recent article about a man that was found alive after snow buried him in his car for two months made me wonder how prepared the average driver is for accidents that leave them stranded. If your car had the majority of the items listed, you would be prepared not only to survive the conditions, but also have the tools to help get found. Two more good reasons to consider a collision repair career are that you can get grant money to help with the education costs and you have many more education options and career paths than you may realize. Some reports are stating that these developments are going to be in vehicles by next year but others are stating that for this technology (especially the car-to-car communication) will only reach its full potential once the majority of cars have it, and that could take another 30 years. Now is the time to begin looking for ways to clean up shop operations and investing in tools that help you do it.
Years later, I am now in my fourth year of university at the University of Victoria studying Commerce, and thoughts of that terrifying man made me doubt my survival in this intern position.
When I first came to work for AutoHouse Technologies, I was unsure of how I was going to communicate with people in the collision repair industry through e-Marketing. Lately I’ve been having more conversations with repairers about productivity because some believe they have made gigantic leaps forward in making their businesses more productive.
As discussed in a prior article, I believe this is one of the KPI’s a shop should track for its own business.

Relief agencies recommend that homeowners keep three days' worth of food and water as well as a kit of medical supplies and other essentials in the house at all times. I chose cans with a pull-top lid so we wouldn’t need a can opener in our car emergency kits.
If a dead-battery, mechanical problem, or flat tire occur when you are driving, a car emergency kit will help you manage the problem until help arrives.
The new testing system makes it more difficult for vehicles to earn a high star rating and therefore encourages car makers to continue making incremental changes to improve safety. In addition, studies show that fewer crash forces are tolerated by people with smaller body size.
Considering that the star safety rating is a large contributing factor in purchasing decisions, especially for women, consumers should be aware of exactly what the rating means. Perhaps as trusted industry experts, collision repair shops should inform customers what they should store in their car in case of an emergency and why. When left with your vehicle in a remote area, in poor weather or health conditions, most survival reports will tell you that you should not wander off from your vehicle.
Over the past year we’ve been trying to answer this question for completely self-serving reasons.
The payoff is worth it though- not only is it safer for the environment and your employees, many of the green initiatives will save you money in the long-run.
The ultimate goal for this of course is to improve the safety of vehicles and reduce collisions. Whether it takes one year or 30 years, the overall effect for collision repairers will be the same: reduced business.
The shop class teacher could be heard from down the hall, screaming at students for any reason.
I figured that people in this industry would be busy getting their hands dirty by fixing cars rather than being inside on their computer.
A lot of shops and people from the industry have joined these sites, and built their profiles for the sole purpose of getting their names out there.

You can search using the name of your loved one, or any family name for current or past services entrusted to our firm.
Water Bottles – Good to have a pack of 24 or so just sitting in your car for needed hydration in case you get stranded.
If you decide to implement it, be forewarned, it will require discipline and may not stick on the first attempt. To illustrate, Angel investors (early stage investors) look for a potential return of 30:1 at exit before they will invest money. For those repairers who are not willing to make the effort to focus on performance to improve profitability or to meet insurance partners’ targets, it is a lot easier to discount price. Shops will have to compete even more for decreasing ROs by gaining competitive advantages and increasing its efficiencies even further. Flashlight with extra batteries – If your car breaks down in the middle of the night.
Well, if you’re considering a career in the collision repair industry, whether as a body or paint tradesperson or another part of the industry, below are 5 good reasons to have confidence in that choice.
Contributing ideas and opinions through Twitter feeds, discussion and comment forums, direct messages, etc., are so important.
So today my daughter drove off in one of our cars, and I showed her our kits and the list before she left.
Not only does it increase brand awareness for your business even more, it adds personality to your business and shows that you are interested and involved in what is happening to the industry that affects you directly.
