I heard new cars today are made from a variety of metal to increase MPG. Are you qualified to work on these cars?
That’s a great question. Newer cars are made of a variety of metals to make them lighter. This requires specialized shop equipment and training. We are trained at the highest industry certification, I-Car Gold, to meet the manufacturer’s repair requirements.
Will you use factory parts in the repair?
We prefer to use factory parts and if you are going through your insurance company, we will work with them to insure they cover your OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts. If your insurance policy states that you are not covered for OEM parts, then we use our OEM certifications for promotional pricing to get OEM parts for the same price as used or aftermarket parts.
