Laura Puente, President of Premiere Services said, “We are seeing an increase in OEM collision damage related to the electronic components. Our QRP program is designed to assist in the parts replacement for this category.” She added, “The program is also the only one available to the industry that provides tested and certified product with a lifetime warranty. “ Our insurance partners can also emphasize their commitment to being environmentally friendly by promoting the use of these recycled parts.”
Puente points out that the QRP program helps reduce an insurer’s indemnity costs by offering warrantied parts at half the OEM price. In some cases, the program could potentially save a policyholder’s vehicle from a total loss.
A key benefit of the program is that the QRP parts can be found in CCC ONE®, an estimating system commonly used by insurers for determining parts costs and labor rates on claims.
Terry Fortner, Vice President of LKQ Corporation, acknowledged the advantages of the partnership. “By working with Premiere Services, the process helps decrease cycle-time and is simplified for insurers and body shops. Collision repair facilities can take advantage of obtaining the warrantied part and installing it themselves or have Premiere Services’ handle the repair. ”
Puente added, “The QRP program is available to any insurer or collision repair facility, and the process for OEM parts is as simple as it is for our aftermarket parts.”
Under the program, Premiere Services will ship the part directly to the collision repair facility to complete the repair or can coordinate having its installation team complete the repair. The parts also include a lifetime warranty. Insurers can also emphasize their commitment to being environmentally friendly by promoting the use of recycled parts.
Insurers and collision repair facilities interested in the QRP program can contact Premiere Services at 800-479-9945.
