Elmira ‐ CARSTAR Elmira has been officially Certified by Certified Collision Care, a non-profit consumer advocacy organization for maintaining the right tools, equipment, training, and facilities necessary to repair the participating Automaker brand vehicles according to the manufacturer’s specifications. In achieving their Certification, CARSTAR Elmira is now an integral part of the most advanced repair capable and efficient collision repair network in the world. Adding to their credentials, CARSTAR Elmira is officially Certified by Certified Collision Care, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and Kia.
To become Certified by the various Automakers, CARSTAR Elmira 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 CARSTAR Elmira Owner, PAUL J VANDENHOVEN, “With the complexity of today’s vehicles, it is critical to select the right repairer. We are proud to receive this official certification and these automaker recognitions, illustrating our investment and commitment to our customers.”
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. CARSTAR Elmira 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.”
