PPG AdjustRite Commercial
Estimating System
An intuitive interface, efficient operation, and a polished
final product make this system the reviewer's top choice
when it comes to collision repair estimates.
by David Brierley

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
The PPG AdjustRite Commercial Estimating
System is a web-based, fully mobile application
driven by a comprehensive database of parts and
real-time fleet repair data from commercial vehicles
and equipment including: trucks, tractors, trailers,
boxes, motor coaches, RVs, and buses. The PPG
AdjustRite system also factors in the repair process
in addition to associated parts and labor.

THE REVIEW:

C

alculating larger collision
repair estimates used to
take about three hours, says
Matt Berg, estimator for Transteck.
Since the truck dealership group
started using PPG's AdjustRite
Commercial Estimating System,
however, that time has been cut
by about two-thirds.

" It has everything categorized by
truck system, " Berg explains. " Your
hood is in one spot, your radiator
cooling pack is in one spot, and so on
and so forth. You don't have to jump
around back and forth and look up
your own paint times, look up your
own blend times, [et cetera]. "

THE REVIEW:

T

erry Weipert is the owner of
Jack's Brake & Alignment in
Davenport, Iowa. Weipert
recently added Rotary's R544 Pro
Truck 2D Wheel Balancer to the
shop - an excellent addition to the
business, he says.
Jack's Brake & Alignment serves a
varied clientele, with vehicles ranging
from passenger cars to trucks. This was

a major consideration when Weipert
was purchasing a new balancer, and
ultimately a deciding factor when it
came down to selecting the R544.

" With this particular balancer,
it has the lift that helps you put [the
wheel] on the spindle, " Weipert says. " It
saves time, just for the pure fact that a
guy is not straining his back and putting [the wheel] up on the spindle. "
Having a machine that can serve
any vehicle that rolls into the bay is a
time saver.
Weipert stresses that the machine's
versatility is his favorite feature.
