A whole new market lies ahead of you. So if you're interested in expanding your business and increasing your sales, make sure you read this article!
What is Smart Repair?
Smart Repair stands for 'Small and Medium Area Repair Techniques'. This is a collective term for various repair techniques. With these repair techniques, small damages can be repaired locally, without having to disassemble, sand and paint a whole part of the car. Also, more of the original paintwork is maintained. This saves time & money and is more environmentally friendly.
An opportunity to tap into a new market
The number of structural damages is decreasing, as the automotive industry is rapidly introducing technology that helps prevent accidents. As a result, many damages today are not as large or cosmetic in nature. Think about faded headlights, weathered leather seats or when you hit the door of another car.
Thanks to Smart Repair, damage can be repaired quickly, at a lower price for a higher profit margin. This is because less material and labour are required. In addition, a part only needs to be partially treated (sanded and sprayed). So Smart Repair is cheaper, faster and better for the environment! This makes the Smart Repair market a super interesting market to enter.
