What is OEM Certification?
Automobile manufacturers have created a network of qualified collision repair shops to properly repair vehicles. These manufacturers have set standards that a shop must meet and maintain in order to remain in the network. Some of these requirements involve customer service, documentation of repair process, advanced training of new technologies, and specific equipment.
What is I-Car?
I-Car stands for Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair. It is an international, not-for-profit training organization dedicated to improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of auto collision repair for the ultimate benefit of the consumer. This is a continuing education program which is constantly evolving inline with new vehicle construction, designs, and materials. We have been an I-Car Gold Class Shop since 1997, longer than any collision repair shop in the tri-state area. What does that mean to you? It means Bates Collision has the training, equipment, and skills needed to repair every vehicle. You don’t have to look for a specialist for your vehicle because we have done that for you!
