The National Alliance of PDR Technicians and PDR Nation Have United in Renouncing Farmers Insurance Policy Regarding Hail Catastrophe Claims.
The President of the NAPDRT Tommy Clayton was quoted today as saying “ The NAPDRT strongly objects to the new policies issued by Farmers Insurance regarding hail claims. This new approach to hail claims will most definitely have a negative impact on both Farmers Insurance Policy Holders and the PDR Industry alike. To encourage “Short Cuts” by the Hail Repairer to save a few dollars using a repair technique that is already saving the Insurer 40 % or more on hail repairs is moving both industries in the wrong directions.
Farmers Policy holders deserve the same high quality and attention to detail on hail repairs as the rest of the Insurance Industry. For Farmers Insurance to implement these kinds of changes without expecting a reduction in repair quality for their Insured show a shockingly naive understanding of the hail catastrophe repair industry. Encouraging cutting corners to save a few bucks is never a good policy for the insured.”
PDR Nation Chairman Gene Fetty was quoted as saying “PDR Nation and its members stand with NAPDRT against any attempt to set standards in the PDR industry without input from NAPDRT or PDR Nation. We believe any standards which are set should have direct input from these organizations which were formed and maintained by active PDR technicians.”
The NAPDRT is a non-profit national organization of paintless dent repair technicians formed in 2006. PDR Nation is also a national non-profit PDR organization. Paintless Dent Repair or PDR is the repair technique used on well over 50% of all hail claims in the USA. PDR is a proven technique that saves the hail claimants both time and the Factory Finish on their vehicle.
