There are very few companies that can handle this amount of increase in business. No one can handle this without a plan. Every hail chaser has probably had their eye on your city 3-5 days before it happened. By the next morning, your town will have $60,000 trucking driving around trying to steal every account they can. Dent Wizard, Dent Concepts and Hi-Tech will be calling their insurance contacts to put pressure on your body shop owners to use these selected companies that they have backdoor deals with. As you drive to your accounts, you notice that these companies already have technicians in your accounts. The owner will say State Farm is making me use Dent Wizard and USAA wants us to use Hi-Tech. You soon will figure out that three PDR companies are now working in your best body shop, but you get to fix all Progressive vehicles until Qwikway calls their insurance contacts. Then you realize you don’t even have time to stop at the dealerships you service. You decide to let other hail chasers have those accounts because the manager has seen 17 companies by noon. As you see, you are losing this battle. Most managers and owners panic and hire other companies after wondering if the small guy can service them. Every time you turn around, you are losing potential income because you didn’t have a contingency plan.
