Published 24/11/2016 00:00:00 in Press Releases
‘Protecting and enhancing relationships with accident repair centres’ is the topic Jason Moseley, Director of RMI Bodyshops (NAB & VBRA), the UK’s trade association for vehicle repairers, will be presenting on at today’s annual Credit Hire Organisation (CHO) conference.
The CHO is the UK’s leading trade body for the credit hire industry, and was established in May 2010 from a merger of the Accident Management Association (AMA) and the National Association of Credit Hire Operators.
RMI Bodyshops will be discussing issues at the conference including:
Payment cycles in line with contract
The need to keep repairers funds separate from business operating funds
Setting up trustee committees for repairer fund accounts
Publishing annual reports of audited repairer funds account
Transparent invoicing practices to be engaged
Jason Moseley comments, “The relationship between accident management companies and bodyshops fulfilling consumer needs for quality repairs is vital for the industry.
“It is important to ensure that payments to bodyshops by accident management companies are protected in the case of these companies going into liquidation. A recent case saw many RMI Bodyshop (NAB/VBRA) members left with average owed debt of £46K.”
