Manufacturer Certifications

What are OEM certifications?

 
OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. As technology advances and cars become more complex with time, cars become more difficult to repair as there are many things to consider such as proximity sensors and autopilot systems. This leads to many incorrect repairs done on vehicles that can immediately or later impair the safety features or overall durability of the car. This is why manufacturers have certification programs that prove a collision center’s ability to repair a vehicle using approved equipment, repair methods, and parts. Only 10% of all body shops nationwide have an OEM certificate. As we strive to perfect our craft, we are training our technicians and staff year round to obtain more OEM certifications as a representation of our elite repair methods to all vehicles and vehicle brands. 

What are my options when choosing a repair shop?

When thinking about where to repair your car, there are usually 3 options.

The Dealership

The dealership guarantees factory repairs with OEM parts. OEM parts are genuine original parts made by a vehicle’s manufacturer. These parts are guaranteed to fit perfect and meet all of the standards that come specified with the part. However, the dealership is the most expensive option when it comes to car repairs and there are usually many additional costs and markups involved in the repair process.

Standard Collision Shop  

This is usually the cheapest option when it comes to fixing your car. However, many of these facilities will repair the car with aftermarket parts and basic equipment which can not only jeopardize the quality of your repairs, but the car’s safety standards as well. (link to a blog post about OEM vs Aftermarket).
