Your car says a lot about you. It is not uncommon for Mercedes Benz or Tesla owners to take great pride in the ownership of their vehicle. After all, they are less common on the road and typically are the envy of fellow drivers on the road. They breathe prestige and success; owners proudly emerge from their cars and bask in the attention they get as others crane their necks dying to know who owns that beautiful piece of machinery, that moving piece of art.
While everyone knows that beauty is not skin deep, the body of an automobile should reflect the perfection of its inner workings. In fact, superior machines like a Mercedes Benz or a Tesla look out of place when they are banged up. Everyone instinctively knows that something is not matching up. Not only does body damage make a work of art look like it’s been vandalized, the value of the car drops noticeably because of it.
This is why dedicated car owners never hesitate to invest in quality auto body repairs whenever necessary. This holds true for luxury cars and for more popular vehicles, like Nissan and Ford; pride of ownership (or lack of it) simply reflects the personality of the owner.
Not All Repair Centers Are the Same
Just like some physicians specialize in certain fields so they can provide superior service and results, not all auto body repair shops work the same. Sure, you can find plenty of body repair shops ready to give you an estimate, along with assurances that they are better than their competitors. But finding auto body repairs shops ready to show you their credentials that back those spoken claims are not as common.
Car owners who are proud of their cars and care how they look will seek out an auto body repair center that agrees with their philosophy and applies the same principles in their own business. In particular, they want a partner in repair, a company that treats their client’s cars as tenderly and lovingly as they would their own vehicle.
One of the best ways to accomplish that all-important goal is to only work with auto body repair centers committed to obtaining certification from major automotive manufacturers who will attest to their superior abilities to bring your damaged car back to new condition. Another advantage to working with certified auto body repair centers is that all parts used in repairs and replacements come from the manufacturer, which keeps the value higher; other shops that work outside of certification typically use generic parts instead of obtaining authentic replacements from the original manufacturer.
Caldwell Collision: Dedicated and Committed
At Caldwell Collision, gaining authorized certification from major automotive manufacturers was not a question of whether or not to be certified: our concern is to become authorized as certified body repair specialists as soon as realistically possible. Already, we have earned certification from four automotive giants: Mercedes Benz, Tesla, Nissan, and Ford.
We are especially proud to be one of the first auto body repair shops in America to be granted CL-Structural Certified, SLS AMG, and ELITE certification from Mercedes Benz. In particular, earning the ELITE certification sets us apart because we went through additional and exclusive training to become one of the best. We even dedicated a separate repair room for these fine machines to avoid the possibility of cross-contaminating materials.
Our Tesla certification is equally important to our business and our clients. Our employees were honored to travel to the facility in Fremont, California to perform repairs under the watchful eyes and supervision of Tesla instructors. Just as they demand the best of the cars they manufacture, they also expect the very best in repairs; earning certification is no easy task at Tesla!
Finally, our Nissan and Ford certification matter just as much to us. In each certification process, we give our all so we can absorb every key element of performing excellent and professional repairs on each car that rolls into our service center. If you need an auto body repair center that cares about both their customers and the cars they own, you want Caldwell Collision. Contact us today and learn how we can make your car look like new and recover its true worth through our certified repair center.
