Body Repair Shop in WA Earns Top Automaker Recognition

No. 1 Automotive Body Repair in Bellingham, WA, has been officially certified by Assured Performance, a nonprofit consumer advocacy organization for maintaining the right tools, equipment, training and facilities necessary to repair the participating automaker brand vehicles according to the manufacturers’ specifications.

In achieving its certification, No. 1 Automotive Body Repair is now an integral part of the most advanced repair-capable and efficient auto body repair network in the world. Adding to its credentials, No. 1 Automotive Body Repair is officially recognized by Assured Performance, FCA, Nissan, Hyundai and Kia.

To become certified and officially recognized by the various automakers, No. 1 Automotive Body Repair passed the rigorous certification process essential to help ensure a proper and safe repair of the new generation of advanced vehicles. Less than 5 percent of body shops across the nation are able to meet the stringent requirements to become officially certified and recognized. The certified network is made up exclusively of best-in-class collision repair businesses that have met or exceeded the strict requirements of the certification program.

According to No. 1 Automotive Body Repair Executive Vice President Jason Cooper, "We've worked hard to stay ahead of the curve in the collision repair industry. This official certification demonstrates that commitment to our customers. We take pride in our highly trained technicians who use the latest tools and equipment to deliver a top-quality repair and the best customer service."

The certification criteria are based upon auto manufacturer requirements. These are critical to ensure the vehicle fit, finish, durability, value and safety following an accident. As new model vehicles are being introduced that use light weight high-strength materials and advanced technology, a proper repair according to manufacturer specification is even more important than ever to ensure the passenger safety and proper performance of the vehicle. Auto manufacturers want to ensure that consumers have the option of certified collision repair wherever they live, work or travel.

"Consumers need the confidence and peace of mind to know their vehicle is being repaired by a shop that has what it takes to ensure the vehicle safety. No. 1 Automotive Body Repair is officially a collision care provider™," said Scott Biggs, CEO of Assured Performance Collision Care™. "They represent the standard by which all other body shops are measured."
