In this informative article, we take a look at why you should only use an accredited autobody repair shop!
If you are looking for an autobody repairer but you don’t know where to start – a good place is always accreditation!
By using a business accredited by a reputable association such as the CRASA (Collision Repair Association of South Africa), you can be assured of good workmanship and recourse in the unlikely event that the job is not completed to acceptable standards. Accredited businesses will be run by highly-skilled professionals, with excellent service levels, administrative support, and quality parts and repair equipment.
During the accreditation process, a business undergoes a thorough assessment. Various aspects are scrutinised during this process: the health and safety operating procedures; the premises, tools and equipment; administration; waste removal; staffing and so on. Even aspects of the business such as insurance of the client’s vehicle whilst on the property of the repairer, parking facilities, lighting, ventilation, and uniforms are inspected. The level of staff training, skills, and qualifications are another important aspect of the accreditation process.
It is a rigorous process that we believe is essential to ensure that our customers know they are dealing with professionals and can feel protected!
Possibly the most important benefit of using an accredited business is the knowledge that there is an association you can deal with in the event of bad service or poor workmanship experience.
Owning a motor vehicle or a fleet is a big investment. The purchase price alone is a major financial commitment and repairs don’t come cheap. It is therefore very important that you can trust the repairer to do the best job at the most affordable price.
We always say, “Don’t be afraid to ask for proof of accreditation when considering an auto body repairer. It is worth the extra admin to ensure you receive the service you deserve!”
