Allstate Pricing Changes
A glassBYTES reader has reported that Allstate is issuing work
orders with the cost of glass parts differing from the standard pricing
agreement for Glass Claims Express participants, outlined in February
Shortly before the NAGS rebalancing of February 28, 2005, Allstate issued
a standard pricing agreement that reflected a change respective to the
rebalancing and glass part prices at 17 percent off of the NAGS numbers
for shops servicing the A and B markets (C and D markets received prices
at 4 and 27 percent more than NAGS, respectively).

pricing agreement from February 2005.)
Recently, a shop in the western United States received a fax from the
insurer indicating that a particular part would come in at cost 20 percent
off of NAGS pricing.
Receipt of the fax has the shop owner angry. He expressed his dismay at
the situation to glassBYTES, noting the increase in discount, particularly
when coupled with the 3-percent price increases recently instituted by
manufacturers and distributors.
He says these factors, along with the cost of doing business, are eating
into his business's profits.
