CERTIFIED COLLISION REPAIR FOR OVER 20 MANUFACTURERS

FACTORY CERTIFIED COLLISION REPAIR

Collision repair for modern vehicles is much more than making your car look good on the surface. The modern engineering of cars requires an experienced technician and state of the art equipment to ensure your car will not only look good again, but will be safe again.

We are proud to offer factory certified collision repair for over 20 manufacturers. In addition, we are the only Audi-certified auto body repair shop in Oregon.

Audi Certified Auto Body Repair

Whatever you drive, you can rely on Jerry’s Custom Paint & Collision Center to repair your vehicle with careful attention to quality. You can be confident in the integrity of our work…from beautiful, long-lasting paint finishes to frame repairs that restore the structural soundness of the vehicle to the same as when it rolled off the assembly line.

WHY ARE CERTIFICATIONS IMPORTANT?

Jerry’s Custom Paint & Collision Center with Precision Body & Paint are certified by over 20 vehicle manufacturers, and that number is growing steadily. What does that mean for you, the vehicle owner?

That means our technicians follow manufacturer procedures to restore your vehicle to pre-accident condition so you can be feel safe on the road again. We have the technology, tools and training necessary to return the complex safety system of your vehicle to it’s original integrity.

Currently, there is no requirement for body shops to have manufacturer certifications, or to use the latest safety techniques. So, why do we spend the extra time, money and resources to train our technicians on the latest aluminum welding techniques, or train them to be experts in vehicle manufactures as complex as Audi, Tesla, Porsche or Mercedes- Benz?

It’s because we believe that our customers deserve to be as safe in a subsequent accident as they were during the first. This is achieved by ensuring your vehicle is fully restored the way the manufacturer intended when they first built it at the factory.

FACTORY CERTIFIED VS. INSURANCE BASED

There are still very few state or federal regulations governing the way body shops repair cars. This is the reason you’ll discover they fall into one of two categories: Factory certified body shops, like Precision and insurance-based DRP shops.

 

Which is Better?

It depends on your perspective – are you an insurance company, an auto manufacturer, or the driver of a collision-damaged vehicle? If you’re an insurance company, you’re footing the bill for the repair, so it makes sense that controlling costs would be of substantial – in some cases primary – concern.

Meanwhile, auto manufacturers and drivers are chiefly concerned with repairing a vehicle to specific quality & safety standards. And while a factory certified repair doesn’t always mean a more expensive repair, sometimes it can: for instance, genuine OEM parts may work more reliably than cheaper after-market parts. A factory-trained welding technician qualified to work with today’s lighter metals may command a higher hourly wage than a traditional auto body repairer.

 

More About Factory Certified

You’ll find that factory certified shops are not as common as insurance-based or DRP shops. That’s because becoming factory certified is not easy. First, the body shop must get a local auto dealership to sponsor them to become factory certified. Next, the shop must complete extensive specialized training and purchase special equipment. Even the waiting & restroom facilities must be up to par with factory guidelines! The certification process can take over a year…that’s for a single factory certification. Now consider the fact Precision Body & Paint has 20 factory certifications, and counting!
