General Summary

The Body Shop Estimator will inspect vehicles that are brought into the dealership for body work, typically as a result of an accident, incident, or owner's desire to change the look of their vehicles. The Estimator will then calculate the costs for any needed repairs and other improvements, which includes assessing physical damage, running tests, and obtaining information from customers.


  • Providing every customer with an estimate of repair costs including parts and labor, or identification of warranty coverage after a complete assessment of concern is completed at the vehicle
  • Getting the customer and insurance companys authorization in a timely fashion, for additional repairs that may be needed before the repairs are attempted
  • Establishing a realistic and specific time promise for each customer
  • Maintaining an accurate job tracking sheet, which provides a proper load based on daily calculations of group capability. Workload should not create carryovers, nor should the production group run out of work on most days
  • Properly document R/O upon completion of work including a complete description of all work performed based on the information provided by the technician. This documentation must provide the value for the price charged
  • Maintain an effective appointment schedule that does not over or under load the production group, and allows time for complete job analysis so that customers can be satisfied
  • Maintain a positive attitude in dealing with customers, peers, and all management
  • Maintain technical knowledge to be able to present competent explanations to customers and technicians
  • Be knowledgeable of the most current owners manual information for all serviced products
  • Consistently achieve department revenue goals and meet or exceeds productivity and service standards
  • Show consistently high levels of documented employee and customer satisfaction as measured by manufacturer and dealership sponsored surveys


  • Extensive automotive estimating experience or a four-year college degree
  • Must have CCC ONE software experience
  • Demonstrated excellent communication skills
