Pete Solis Collision Center is proud to be an I-Car Gold Certified auto body shop. It is a standard of excellence and quality we work hard to achieve and to keep. If a shop is I-Car certified, it means you can count on that shop to bring you trustworthy service and dedication to you as a customer. What is I-Car and what are some other benefits of bringing your car to an I-Car Certified auto body shop?

To start off, I-CAR is a national organization that specializes in improving business performance, enhancing employee development, contributing to proper repairs, and maintaining professional business standards for auto body shops in the United States. The I-CAR Vision is that EVERY person in the collision repair industry has the information, knowledge and skills required to perform complete, safe and quality repairs for the ultimate benefit of the consumer. Every technician participating in the I-CAR certification program goes through a thorough training to ensure that they are up to date on the latest technologies and stay current with collision repair techniques. For an auto body shop and its technicians to receive certification is hard work and commitment.

What are the tangible benefits you receive as a customer of an I-Car Gold Certified shop? Well, first of these is seeing a well-run shop. As part of I-Car’s training program, auto body shop owners are helped through the lowering of overhead costs. This in turn, helps you as the customer get a fair and affordable car repair price. It is also a requirement for a business to have ongoing training, even after achieving an I-Car Gold Certification. The auto body shop owner must employ Platinum™ level individuals in each of these four required roles:

  • Estimator
  • Non-Structural Technician
  • Steel Structural Technician
  • Refinish Technician

The shop that is I-Car Gold Certified, also will be in much better condition compared to non-I-Car shops and have better equipment. We previously mentioned the rigorous technician training on the most current repair techniques. Everything from initial assessment, insurance report filing, to the actual repair work. I-Car has it covered. Customer service is something that not every auto body shop has or even values. However, with an I-Car Gold Certified shop, the customer is a priority. As a result, repair cycle times are relatively quicker and quality emphasized. Your overall satisfaction as a customer is extremely important. A final benefit of dealing with an I-Car Gold Certified shop is that car dealerships and insurance companies prefer to work with such a shop certification. This is because they too understand the importance of high quality standards of repair. In fact, many insurance companies and Original Equipment Manufacturers WON’T work with a body shop that isn’t I-CAR Gold Certified.
