I-CAR Gold Class Professionals
Car accidents can befall unwary victims at any time. After taking care of any personal injuries you may have suffered, taking care of your car's injuries should be next. It is important to recognize the safety hazards associated with driving an improperly repaired vehicle.
Your car is designated to protect you in an accident, according to Barbara Cellini, who along with her husband Tom, owns Broadway Auto Body Rebuilders in South Chicago Heights, III. If after an accident your car is not repaired correctly, it may not properly protect you and your family if you are involved in another collision.
Today's unibody cars have many advancements that didn't exist only a few years ago. As auto makers have introduced new technology, the equipment and technical training needed to repair vehicles has changed as well. Keeping technicians up to date with technology through training is what I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, is all about.
I-CAR is an international not-for-profit organization that gathers information about collision repair from major auto makers like BMW, Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Nissan, Toyota and Volvo; from collision repair businesses across the country; from insurance companies; and from makers and suppliers of tools, equipment and materials used to repair cars.
The purpose of this network is to raise the quality, safety and efficiency of auto collision repair for the ultimate benefit of the consumer.
I-CAR provides the following "shopping list" of items to look for when searching for a quality collision repair shop.
