Tools for Success
EVERY COLLISION REPAIR PROFESSIONAL KNOWS that without the proper tools, doing a job right can be a challenge. In this issue of Collision Pros magazine, we give you a rundown of some of the valuable tools that Toyota offers to help you deliver superior collision repair.
The revolutionary estimating software known as Toyota Recommended Repair Procedures (TRRP) can help you change the way estimates are written in your shop. The new program provides you with a complete repair plan at the start of the estimating process, allowing you to eliminate the steps you don’t need. TRRP is a valuable tool that can help eliminate guesswork and increase efficiency in your shop.
In this issue, you’ll also have the opportunity to meet two of Toyota’s Collision Repair & Refinish trainers: Eric Mendoza and Dan Hodges. You can read about their inspiring careers and the passion and excitement they bring to the classroom. Toyota’s trainers are a reminder of the importance of education and that knowledge can be one of the most valuable tools in your toolbox.
You can also read more about what makes Genuine Toyota and Lexus Parts special and why they can be preferable to aftermarket parts. And, you can learn how independent shops can benefit from CR&R training. Finally, with winter upon us, learn about corrosion protection to help ensure the longevity of the repairs you work on.
Today, the collision repair profession is much more complicated and technologically advanced than ever before. A technician’s toolbox contains the traditional tools of collision repair, but it now also contains non-traditional tools including software programs, Toyota training and more. Toyota is committed to helping ensure that collision repair professionals have the tools they need to provide their customers with an exceptional repair experience every time.
