Why Choose a Certified Auto Body Shop

A car accident is always a stressful situation, even if it’s a simple fender bender. You do not want to add more stress by not knowing which body repair shop you should choose. While it may seem convenient to take it to the closest local body shop, you may want to do some further research to ensure your repair is done properly.

It’s important to choose a body shop that specializes in collision repair or dent repair. Not all shops have the equipment and skills to properly do auto body work.

The best thing about a certified body shop is that they will require their technicians to receive special training that makes them knowledgeable about specifications for certain vehicle makes and how to safely repair them.

Certifications can also indicate that the technicians have had specialized training in certain repairs or techniques or that the shop has been inspected for quality. To find out if a body shop is certified, check on their shop’s website for a logo that indicates specific certifications.

These certified technicians are certified to service manufactures like Honda, Nissan, Infinity, Acura, Chrysler, Ford, GM, and Hyundai. Each of these car manufacturers have systems and components that are specific to the models they build. Having a factory-certified body shop and technician repair your vehicle will ensure that the repair is done properly for your specific model.

Each year, vehicles become more complex, which can make it harder on a non-certified auto body shop to service your vehicle correctly. A simple improper repair can turn into major issues and more costs down the road.

Auto repair businesses can also work to become a certified I-CAR Gold Class business, like Lackey Body Works, by having at least one I-CAR Platinum Individual-certified employee in each of four certification areas. An I-CAR Gold Class certification assures customers that the body shop has the highest level of expertise in collision repair.

If you need any collision repair done, call Lackey Body Works at 417-678-4205. We are proud of our certifications and love what we do! 😊
