Should ADAS Calibration Be Outsourced?

In the evolving landscape of auto repair, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibration has become a critical topic for body shop owners. As these systems become more common, the decision to outsource ADAS calibration or manage it in-house is significant, affecting operational efficiency, cost, and customer satisfaction.

The Case for Outsourcing ADAS Calibration

Expertise and Equipment

ADAS calibration requires specialized equipment and technical know-how. Outsourcing to specialists who are equipped and trained can ensure high-quality work, reducing the risk of errors that could lead to malfunctions or safety issues.

Cost Efficiency

Setting up an in-house ADAS calibration facility involves significant investment in both equipment and training. For many body shops, especially smaller ones, outsourcing can be more cost-effective than bearing these upfront costs.

Compliance and Liability

Professional ADAS calibrators are likely to stay updated with industry standards and regulations, reducing your liability and ensuring compliance.

The Case for In-House ADAS Calibration

Control and Convenience

Managing ADAS calibration in-house provides complete control over the scheduling and quality of the work. This can lead to faster turnaround times and higher customer satisfaction as the entire repair process is under one roof.

Revenue Opportunity

Although the initial setup is costly, offering ADAS calibration can open new revenue streams. As more vehicles incorporate ADAS, the demand for calibration services will grow, potentially making the investment worthwhile.

Integration with Other Services

In-house capability allows for seamless integration of ADAS calibration with other repair work, simplifying logistics and reducing the vehicle’s downtime.
