Car Body Work – A Collaborative Effort

Since collision repair if part of a much larger automotive landscape, we know collision repair professionals rely on us for a window into the entire automotive industry. The journey begins at the dealership level, where consumers take delivery of their new vehicles. Those that don’t stay new, and need the attention of a collision repair professional will either end up at the dealer’s in-house auto body facility, or with a certified collision repair facility. Fleets also need auto body care when bad things happen to their vehicles. That’s why collision repair professionals rely on us to keep them abreast of trends in the fleet side of the business. As new cars and trucks hit the road, chances are they’ll end up in one of the many auto body repair facilities across our country for repairs. Since vehicles that end up at a body shop will often need new tires, we make sure our collision repair audience is exposed to the latest news about tires and tire technologies. And once the sheet metal is replaced and the paint dries, we know the collision repair process is only half finished. Besides car body work, all the mechanical elements have to be put back into place, fixed or completely replaced in order to make the vehicle road-worthy, and good as new. Here again, our coverage of the entire automotive industry, including the aftermarket and the mechanical repair side of the business, equip our readers with the information and insight needed to get the job done right.
