Job Description for Estimator, Automobile Damage

An automobile damage estimator estimates how much it will cost to repair the damages to a vehicle. Estimators often work for collision shops, and they may complete work in a combination of an office, outdoors, inside the shop, or (in some cases) house visits. The automobile damage estimator uses their knowledge of automobiles and automobile repair to estimate the cost of damages and communicate them to the customer. They must address any questions or concerns that the customer has about the process to ensure they are satisfied with the estimates. After developing an estimate, the automobile damage estimator notifies the mechanic so that the damages can be repaired immediately, if the client chooses to proceed. Before the car is given back to the customer, the estimator needs to make sure that the work is complete and satisfactory. All bills must be reviewed for accuracy.
