Have you been involved in an accident? If so, it is important to take your vehicle into a collision center employing ASE certified professionals. These individuals can mean the difference between a complete and safe restoration and leaving you potentially exposed to further accidents and inferior repairs. At Brown’s Collision Center, we have ASE certified professionals on staff who are ready and waiting to service your vehicle. However, before you bring your vehicle in, here is why you should choose a collision center with ASE certified professionals.
What Exactly Is ASE Certification?
Before bringing your vehicle into our shop at Brown’s Collision Center, it’s important to know what such a certification even is. Short for Automotive Service Excellence, this is a certification given by the National Institute for Automotive Excellence (NIAE). This is an organization designed to help car owners such as yourself know who is a qualified mechanic with the demonstrated skills and knowledge to repair your vehicle.
There are different kinds of ASE certifications provided by the NIAE. These include engine repairs, electrical work, brakes, suspension, transmission, axles and nearly all other areas of your vehicle. Due to this, when you are in need of engine work, you need an ASE certified engine mechanic. This way, you know without a doubt that such an individual knows exactly what they are doing. The last thing you should ever do is hand your vehicle over to someone who doesn’t know how to work on an engine.
How a Certification Is Obtained
This is just as important to you as a driver since you need to find an ASE mechanic. In order to even begin the application process of becoming certified, a mechanic needs to have at least two years of working on the job (or one year working on the job and a degree in automotive repair). Once they qualify, they must then take an ASE exam, which is vigorous, in-depth and difficult to pass. This way, when you bring your vehicle into a garage, such as Brown’s Collision Center, you know that the person taking your keys has the kind of education, work experience, and knowledge to handle your vehicle. Plus, as a nonprofit organization, the NIAE does not play favorites. ASE certifications are only handed out on the basis of merit.
The Latest Knowledge
These professionals are up-to-date on the latest technology. In order to maintain their certification, this is a requirement. Over time, repair technology changes. New ways of identifying problems and correcting issues come about. These ASE certified mechanics are up-to-date on these changes, which improves the finished product while also helping you save money on quality repairs. All of this is designed to improve your peace of mind and let you know you’re receiving nothing but the very best from your mechanic.
Quality of Repair
The quality of your repair is critical. Inferior repairs lead to additional problems that may put you in harm’s way. An ASE certified mechanic will provide you with a quality repair job.
When it comes to vehicle repairs, there is a big difference in the final product you receive. ASE certified professionals have demonstrated their knowledge and are able to work on your vehicle in ways that other mechanics are not. So, if you have been in an accident, have been looking for a garage capable of working on your damaged vehicle or want to know more about the importance of an ASE certified mechanic, feel free to give our team at Brown’s Collision Center a call at your earliest convenience.
