Why Choose a Repair Shop that is Factory Certified?
Factory Certification Means a Lot
After you have been involved in a collision, you have the right to take your vehicle to any auto body repair shop that you want. While your insurance company can make suggestions, you get the final say in the matter. So if you are in need of auto body work, why not go to the collision center with the most factory certifications in a multi-state area?
You may be thinking, “Why do I need factory certification? Isn’t a repair a repair?” The difference in repairs between shops may not be noticeable at first, but when you use a shop that isn’t certified, it means you may not be getting the repair that you expected.
Certified Replacement Parts
If you have ever had to replace something on your vehicle, even something simple, you may have looked up parts online. You likely noticed there were parts labeled OEM, replacement, used, or genuine. The pieces looked identical, yet the prices fluctuated wildly. The reason is that not all parts are created equal, and sometimes when you opt for the cheaper part, you get a much lower quality. To understand the difference, read about OEM parts and why they make a difference.
When you take your vehicle to be repaired at a shop that has a certification to work on that particular manufacturer, then you know that you are only going to get the best parts available. These replacement parts are often the same as those that originally came with your vehicle, and they have been put through the quality control tests that manufacturers specify.
Technicians that Understand Your Vehicle
The quality of the parts may fluctuate, but even more importantly is the understanding of how to do the repairs. In order to be certified, Big Sky Collision Center has had to prove that we understand each manufacturer, and understand how each vehicle is supposed to be repaired. That means two things for you when you come in to have your vehicle fixed.
First, it means that you have a technician working on your vehicle that thoroughly understands the nuances of your vehicle. No guesswork, no Googling answers in the middle of a repair job. Just quality work from a highly trained tech.
It also means an understanding of why particular practices are put in place. Some shops know that you, the consumer, will see that your vehicle went from wrecked, to restored. Unless you’re fully inspecting the rig, you basically never see most of the repair work. That makes it tempting to cut corners, especially when there is no factory certification on the line. That’s not how we do it at Big Sky Collision Center; it’s quality work, done right every time.
Full Factory Safety Standards
One of the ways we separate ourselves and are working toward becoming the best auto body repair shop in Billings, Montana, is by making sure we restore each vehicle to full factory safety standards.
What’s that mean? It means your vehicle meets all of the safety specifications that it did when it rolled off the assembly line. For instance, if you remove a seat in a Toyota, that affects the entire SRS (supplemental restraint system), and the seatbelts and airbags need to be inspected and ensured to be in proper working order.
Only when your vehicle passes every safety standard is it ready to go home with you.
