Trend Tracker launches survey

Trend Tracker has reported the launch of the 2018 Trend Tracker UK Body Repair Survey.

The survey invitation has been sent to approximately 2,000 bodyshop email contacts via a bespoke secure survey software system, Inquisium.

UK bodyshop owners/managers can return to the survey any time before the closing date – 5 October 2018 – upon which time analysis on this section of the forthcoming Trend Tracker The Future of the UK Vehicle Body Repair Market 2019 To 2024 report will commence. The report is scheduled to be published in Winter 2018.

The primary research outputs will be analysed on an aggregated basis and will include charge-out labour rates; labour, parts and paint turnover; bodyshop investment strategies; staffing levels and staff training investment; operational standards and information relating to the body repair supply chain.

Other aspects of the report will provide detailed analysis on the key market drivers, the UK economy, market size and trends, accident repair frequency and cost, repairs by vehicle make, motor insurance trends, new vehicle and repair technologies, the supply structure and will take into account strategic outlook and forecasts, as the report has covered in previous years.
