National AutoBody Research (NABR) announced the launch of its VRS Labor Rate Survey in the state of Massachusetts, sponsored by AASP-Massachusetts.
The online survey is free for all Massachusetts collision repair centers and can be found on NABR’s survey website.
Through the VRS Standardized Labor Rate Survey, NABR provides Massachusetts body shops with an independent, third party, survey they can trust to survey labor rates properly and transparently.
“We are very enthusiastic to bring the innovative and proven VRS survey to Massachusetts,” said Lucky Papageorg, Executive Director of AASP-Massachusetts. “Together, the VRS survey and system specifically address and eliminate the significant obstacles and problems this industry has faced with labor rate surveys and properly measuring market-based labor rates for far too many years, in fact decades.”
“NABR is delighted to conduct its independent survey in Massachusetts and encouraged to see that the association leadership recognizes the value and power the VRS system brings to the marketplace,” said Richard Valenzuela, CEO of NABR. “We expect strong participation in the survey and look forward to reporting an accurate picture of what market rates really are in the state.”
