The auto body repair industry is an industry of change. Auto body shops everywhere are continuously investing time and resources training its technicians, estimators, and support staff on the evolving automotive industry. It is important for collision repair shops to maintain a high level of advanced training to properly repair vehicles and ensure consumer safety. Safety is a top priority at Artistic Auto Body. Success in safety also provides our customers with top quality that can only be achieved by continuous education. Recently our team at Artistic Auto Body completed a workshop put on by VeriFacts on High Strength Steels or HSS, which is the primary force behind consumer safety.
HSS are transforming the collision repair industry. Vehicles used to be made of mild strength steels that auto body shop technicians were able to heat, bend, and reshape. Fast forward to the present, late model vehicles have various forms of metals located in very specific points on the car to firmly protect the passengers from energy absorption. Cars are designed to transfer energy through the vehicle. If an auto body shop is not knowledgeable about this process, then poor repairs result and consumer safety is at risk. HSS cannot be “work hardened” via heat or repair impact. Proper equipment is needed to test the metals to determine proper collision repair methodology. In collaboration with VeriFacts, a company dedicated to consumer safety and proper repair methods, Artistic Auto Body is redefining the automotive collision repair industry with its dedication to safety. It is important as a consumer to know what auto body shops are trained and knowledgeable and therefore capable of truly putting your vehicle back to pre-loss condition.
