CARBODYBIDS is totally FREE for registered bodyshops and customers alike. This is a significant benefit compared to rival websites who typically charge a commission or a fee for membership. The service, which is operated by AAH DIRECT, is promoted online to generate significantly more sales opportunities for registered garages.
Customers submit jobs on CARBODYBIDS in 3 easy steps. The job is instantly emailed out for repairers to “bid on” and it appears in their online portal alongside other local jobs.
An advantage of the service for repairers is that the system uses VRN data to identify the customer’s exact car. Customers are encouraged to include photos of their damaged vehicle, making it easier for repairers to return an accurate bid.
Bids are instantly returned to consumers who will then choose where to get their vehicle repaired. Customers may consider the services that the repairer can provide such as courtesy cars, vehicle recovery and special offers along with the cost of a bid.
It can take as little as 60 seconds for garages and bodyshops to register for CARBODYBIDS. Once registered, users can instantly bid on repair jobs in their area, they will also receive new jobs to bid on when they are submitted.
