SCRS Members,

Car Cover in CCC - During the repair process it may be necessary to cover the vehicle to prevent overspray. This operation may be performed multiple times and each time you cover the vehicle, then remove the cover, a labor value of 0.2 can be added. CCC/Motor state in DEG inquiry number 8533,"Since the operation may be performed multiple times during any given repair process, an on-the-spot evaluation is required to determine how many times this operation should be utilized, and who should perform this operation." Furthermore, the inquiry states the material costs are not included in any labor time and that material costs and cost categories must be determined by the repair facility.

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY - it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
