What does it mean to be “Manufacturer Certified” and why is it important to you?
Today’s vehicles are built with highly advanced materials and sophisticated processes. Car makers know that a body shop can’t properly and safely repair their vehicles without specific manufacturer training and equipment. Crash-safety is engineered into today’s vehicles and they must be correctly repaired to retain their original safety standards. That’s why more and more auto makers are recognizing the importance of certifying select shops to ensure that their procedures are followed and that quality parts are used in the repair process.
Capitol Body Shop is certified by more auto manufacturers than any other body shop in Mississippi.
