Trevose, PA, June24, 2013 — CEI’s in-house team of licensed physical damage appraisers saved fleets $9 million in accident repairs last year.  That’s one of the points the team’s leader, Greg Neuman, makes in a featured video at Fleet Management Weekly, the online-magazine published by Automotive Digest.

Mr. Neuman is the supervisor of the 13-man department that reviews every body repair estimate CEI receives from its network of some 4,000 auto and truck body repair shops.  The team scrubs every estimate for accuracy, potential hidden damage and ways to cut repair costs through the use of aftermarket and used parts and paintless dent repair.

“I have 12 gentlemen that look at every single claim, and we’re looking for savings,” Mr. Neuman says.  “We’re spending [our client fleets’] money, but we’re spending it like it’s our own.”

The video was recorded at the 2013 NAFA Institute & Expo in Atlantic City.  CEI’s booth featured an actual fleet vehicle that had been declared a total loss.  Mr. Neuman showed visitors the hidden damage in the vehicle that can lead to repair estimate supplements when not anticipated by shop estimators.
