Collision Estimator Resume Samples

A Collision Estimator will evaluate and check the automobile and estimate the cost of repairing it. Job duties that can be seen on a Collision Estimator Resume are – inspecting the vehicle to assess the amount of damage, effecting minor repairs such as battery cable replacement, brake adjustment and hinge lubrications; estimating and list the repairs to be done and the labor costs, estimating and delivering the overall customer payment, collecting insurance estimates, entering the work order into work management systems, recording and maintaining a detailed record of work done, and making an intrinsic check of the vehicle before making the final bills.

As writing estimate is a very intrinsic and precise work, the employers want their employees to have sufficient training in automotive repairs and assessing damages. Additionally, these skills are as well expected – the ability to estimate damages and damage cost, using estimating manuals and guides; knowledge of safety and vehicle identification, a good knowledge of estimating terminologies and computer estimations. A postsecondary training with work experience in auto repair is the minimum qualification expected from Collision Estimators.
