Ford Canada joins Fiat Chrysler Automobiles on the Certified Collision Care Program

Ford Motor Company of Canada and FCA are now both partners with Certified Collision Care to manage their OEM Certification programs.  Collision Repairers that meet the aluminum-specific Ford requirements can now add OEM Certification by Ford to their business.  Certified shops will receive signage, distinction on the Autobody locator and the ability to use special FCA and Ford badges on their marketing material and website.  Our OEM brochures and certification requirements can be downloaded on our website at this link: http://certifiedcollisioncare.ca/canada/affiliates

If you are already FCA Certified, and would like to add the Ford OEM Certification to your business please contact one of our Account Managers:

Marketing Tips

Did you know consumers are 3 times more likely to pick a Certified choice over any other?  This is why becoming an OEM Certified Repair Facility will significantly benefit your collision business – especially when you use your credentials in your marketing and sales efforts.
To maximize the impact:
  1. EDUCATE YOUR STAFF:  Less than 1 in 10 shops qualify as a Certified Collision Care providers.   Celebrate your achievement with your staff!  Ask them for ideas on how to let the community know that your facility is an OEM Certified Collision Care Provider.
  2. CERTIFICATION SIGNAGE:  Hang your Certified Collision Care, Mopar Certified Collision Repair Facility, and Ford National Body Shop Network Certified signs in your high-traffic reception area, and explain the importance of OEM Certification in your sales process.
  3. DISPLAY OEM LOGOS:  Download your approved OEM logo credentials and add to your website and social media sites.  Let consumers know you are Certified to safely repair their car by their auto manufacturer!
  4. PERSONALIZE YOUR MICRO-SITE:  The Certified Collision Care online shop locator is launching.  Make a great first impression with consumers by updating your business hours, contact information and shop photos.  Show off your beautiful facility and friendly staff!
