Car Estimator Jobs

Car Estimator Overview


Car crashes happen every day, prompting owners to turn to body shops for estimates. Car Estimators are the main liaison between the customer and technician. Once a vehicle is received, the estimator works with the technicians to evaluate all damage, from electrical to body paneling. A list of parts and labor is finally created, allowing the estimator to go over specifics with the customer. Car Estimators need a calm demeanor to deal with frustrated customers. Almost all car repairs are expensive, especially if insurance is not part of the equation. Good communication skills are key when speaking to customers and deciding on a final repair price.

Car Estimator Education Requirements


For most industries, Car Estimators must have a bachelor's degree. Estimators need to analyze several aspects of the car, requiring abstract thinking nurtured in college. Classes in automotive or computer technology are helpful in understanding and explaining technical information to the customer. Employers appreciate honest, intelligent and detail-oriented people as Estimators.

Car Estimator Job Market


The job market is trending upward, according to recent statistics. Between 2012 and 2022, available positions for Car Estimators are expected to increase by 26 percent. With more cars on the road, accidents will happen, requiring body work for any model. Auto dealers and body shops constantly need accurate quotes for their customers to remain viable in the market. They may even move up into similar positions such as a Body Shop Estimate Manager or Auto Claims Adjuster.

Car Estimator Salary


Salaries range between $50,000 and $62,000 a year, according to recent studies. Precise math coupled with good people skills are two critical features that employers want to retain in their employees for the long-run. Newly-hired Estimators remain on the low end of the pay scale, but slowly rise up with experience.
