Only the Best Shops Are Certified

To be certified and recognized a collision shop must have the right tools, equipment, training and facilities to properly repair vehicles to the manufacturer’s specifications and provide a written lifetime warranty on workmanship.

In addition to making it easy for consumers to find the best auto body repair shops, certification also provides important skill and safety benchmarks for shop owners and technicians and promotes a culture of learning that is required to succeed with continously evolving technology and equipment.
