It is time we take back control of our shops by breaking the control the insurance companies have had over the auto industry for many years.We need to stop seeing the body shop across town as an enemy, but as an ally in the industry.
Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
Ray Gunder, owner of a Lakeland, Florida auto repair center, has become a leader in the auto repair industry and is a guest speaker at many industry seminars and conventions throughout the United States. Gunder recently returned from Michigan and will be speaking again in April in Mississippi at the Southern Automotive Repair Conference on topics such as consumer safety and protection, insurance company steering tactics, bad repairs, insurance company collision repair shops and current law suits filed by consumers against insurance companies for failure to pay for proper repairs.
“It is time we take back control of our shops by breaking the control the insurance companies have had over the auto industry for many years. We need to stop seeing the body shop across town as an enemy, but as an ally in the industry since we are all fighting the same fight,” said owner, Ray Gunder.
In addition to his speaking engagements, Gunder and his wife, Deanie formed the non-profit, One Voice, a group of independent auto body repair shop owners, attorneys, and others connected to the auto collision repair industry in June 2013. The non-profit was formed to bring these leaders throughout the nation together throughout the year to discuss industry issues and work together to change the way insurance companies contract with auto repair centers.
Founded in 1969, the Gunder family has been serving fellow Lakeland community members and the Central Florida area for over 40 years.

With an owner who is a leader in the industry and a family operated business, the Lakeland community has quite a body shop in their backyard. The Gunder's also formed the Auto Angel's Car Give-a-Way, bringing together many other shops, vendors, and the industry to give Christmas vehicles to the needy.
