Ready for its Next Accident is a project started by Peter Sziklai. As the owner of Tsawwassen Collision Ltd., an independent collision repair shop near Vancouver, Canada he has been actively involved in the collision repair industry since 1982.
The awareness of Ready for Its Next Accident repair principles has increased significantly in the last 5 years but at this point in late 2016 this awareness is not universal and the principles are not well developed.
Everything is changing, including the cost structure of the entire repair process and those inside that process; manufacturers, repairers and insurers are scrambling to find a new equilibrium. Until this is established, perhaps by 2020, there will be a very wide range in the how cars are repaired.
The primary purpose of the RFINA project is to provide information to vehicle owners as the principles of Ready for Its Next Accident are developed and incorporated into the business models of the repair industry.
An informed vehicle owner has a much greater chance of getting the right repair.
