Gold Class Advantage

When you see the Gold Class logo, you know a shop is trained in how to make the proper repairs that can retain the safety and structural integrity of your vehicle. Research confirms that choosing a Gold Class business can also mean a better repair experience for you. A May 2013 analysis of more than 18,000 collision repair shops by automotive information provider CynCast found that Gold Class-rated businesses outperformed other body shops by 47% in CynCast’s Shop Performance Value Rating. The rating measures shop performance using important metrics such as how long it takes for customers to get their cars back, the accuracy of the initial estimate, and customer satisfaction.

Many insurers, vehicle makers and repair networks require or recommend training for repair shops in their networks, including Gold Class status. Ask your insurance company or car dealer what training their program requires, or review the following list of Gold Class-supporting organizations:
