Why is choosing a ‘Certified’ Collision Centre a good thing?

You get higher quality repairs with Certified Collision Centres, but why?

At AutoCanada Collision Centres, we believe that the small details matter. A lot of customers have the misconception that being Certified is a small ordinary designation that every repair shop obtains. While others might not even know or consider bringing their vehicle into a Certified Centre.

In actuality, being Certified makes an enormous difference in the terms of the function, longevity, value, and overall safety of your vehicle. Using a Certified Collision Centre ensures the same factory safety and quality ratings are matched when your vehicle is repaired by our Certified Technicians.

What does Certification mean for me?

When a Collision Centre has Manufacturer Certification that means they then have access to better equipment, knowledge, and tools to better service the customer with higher quality repairs. By using OEM or original manufacturer parts we want to guarantee our customers receive the proper products and procedures to ensure the same factory safety and quality ratings are matched.

Manufacturer technician training

After a technician reaches at least 2 years of auto body repair experience, he or she can then be certified under the program of their choice. Our technicians undergo extensive training to ensure that every repair complies with manufacturer specifications. The same considerations are taken when it comes to our luxury vehicles, ensuring that our technicians stay up to date with the current manufacturer training and specifications.

Long lasting repairs

Understanding the different types of certifications in the auto repair industry can be overwhelming. When consulting repair facilities near you, look for a centre that has technicians trained by your vehicle’s manufacturer.

Generally after an accident your insurance company will provide you with a list of collision repair shops. Remember, it is ultimately your decision where you decide to have your vehicle repaired. We want you to feel 100% confident in the place you choose to go to and the exceptional quality of service you will receive. So make sure the next time you happen to get into an accident choose a recognized Collision Centre!
