    Choosing Your Collision Repair Facility

    about-ser-pic1

    Having an accident is certainly not on your to-do list but when it happens you want the most professional auto body shop to repair your vehicle. If you’re going through an insurance company for your repairs they may offer suggestions of where to have your repair work done. At the end of the day you ultimately have the right to choose the auto repair facility that meets your standards and expectations.  The collision repair experts at Auto Body Specialists, Inc. located in Rockford, Illinois have the experience, skill, facilities and the certifications to return your vehicle back to it’s pre-accident condition.

     

    Here at Auto Body Specialists, Inc. our Estimators and Technicians work continuously and tirelessly to stay up to date with today’s rapidly advancing technology through proper training, certifications and the proper equiptment. We do this through a program that many vehicle manufacturers are now starting to offer called a Certified Collision Repair Program. They began offering these programs in order to set a standard of quality that meets the manufacturers expectations for the repairs to their vehicles and their warranties.  In some cases if you decide to take your vehicle to a non-certified shop it can unfortunately void some of the manufacturers warranty on the vehicle. The reason for this is no secret. Some repair facilities cut corners. How do you know if a facility may be using an aftermarket or used part on your brand new dream car instead of an O.E.M. part? How can you be sure they are not using incorrect tools compromising the safety of your repairs without physically inspecting the facility and knowing the right questions to ask? When is the last time you took your vehicle into a shop for repairs and made sure the estimators and technicians were not only familiar with the type of vehicle you have but also equipped with the proper training and equipment to get the job done as effectively and efficiently as possible? Chances are a you have not and will not do that. Many people assume the repair shop they choose to trust with their vehicle will do the job the way it is supposed to be done without ever having the advantage of knowing for sure.  Auto Body Specialists, Inc. is certified for Honda, Acura, Mercedes-Benz, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, Ford, Nissan, Infiniti, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Ram, MOPAR, SRT, and Hyundai. We are an I-Car Gold Class shop as well as certified through Assured Performance and ProFirst as a Certified Collision Repair Facility.

    You may be wondering what I-Car Gold Class, Assured Performance and ProFirst means. Well in order to be I-Car Gold Class shop at Auto Body Specialists, Inc. our employees must consistently meet a uniform standard of training throughout the shop. This ensures that all of our staff is as knowledgeable and as proactive as they can be about the advancements and proper procedures for the repairs to your vehicle.  Assured Performance and ProFirst are both agencies that monitor repair shops that are apart of the certification programs. Their purpose is to ensure standards and quality are both consistently being met and corners are not being cut in an attempt to cut cost by sacrificing their standard of quality. So here at ABS you do have the advantage of knowing 100% that we are here for you. We do not cut corners and we do things the right way, not the easy way. Our Estimator’s and Technician’s are certified because we care about all of our customers. We are always looking for new ways to make your Collision Repair experience a postive one.
