A Mass-ive Remark: Massachusetts association slams DRPs in position statement

Boston, Massachusetts — The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Massachusetts (AASP-MA) has issued a statement confirming it will represent both direct repair program (DRP) and non-DRP shops, while simultaneously calling DRP conditions a “detriment to [the] industry” in its position statement.

“AASP-MA is a pro-consumer association representing all collision repairers and mechanical repair shops, regardless of insurance affiliation,” the trade group states in its position. “However, it is our firm belief that the restrictive and suppressive insurance referral and ‘program’ contracts are a detriment to our industry and could create a liability risk for vehicle owners and collision repairers.

“We strive to advance the industry through education, regulatory enforcement, and legislation to dismantle the control and influence insurers have on consumers and our industry,” wrote AASP-MA.

According to the group, AASP-MA is comprised of independent collision repairers, dealership collision shops and mechanical repair facilities. The organization says it “strives to provide education and support to assist all shops to achieve their desired objectives.”

The group has not elaborated but has publicly posted the mission statement on its website.
