Ratchet+Wrench Launches 2024 Industry Survey

Feb. 1, 2024
Auto repair shop owners are invited to participate in the annual questionnaire that provides data about the business aspect of shop ownership.

Ratchet+Wrench has launched its 2024 Industry Survey. Shop owners can participate in the leading survey covering management strategies, KPIs, and ownership practices in the collision repair/vehicle repair business.  

“In order to get a clear snapshot of our industry leaders, we need shop owners to share these key insights,” said Matt Hudson, content director at Ratchet+Wrench. “After we compile the survey reports, they will be made available to everyone for free on our website.”

Participants can expect to take around 15 minutes to answer questions about their shops, some business metrics, staff, tooling and much more. Answers about specific shops will not be publicized without permission. 

In the fall, you can read a full report of the survey findings in print and online.
