Northwest Autobody & Towing, Inc. in Ponderay, ID, has been officially certified by Assured Performance, a nonprofit consumer advocacy organization, for maintaining the right tools, equipment, training, and facility necessary to repair participating automaker brand vehicles according to the manufacturer’s specifications.

By achieving the certification, Northwest Autobody & Towing, Inc. is now an integral part of the most advanced repair-capable and efficient autobody repair network in the world. Adding to its credentials, Northwest Autobody & Towing is officially recognized by Assured Performance, FCA, GM, Ford, and Hyundai.


To become certified and officially recognized by the various automakers, Northwest Autobody & Towing, Inc. had to pass the rigorous certification process essential to helping ensure a proper and safe repair of the new generation of advanced vehicles. Less than 5 percent of body shops across the nation are able to meet the stringent requirements to become officially certified and recognized. The certified network is made up exclusively of best-in-class collision repair businesses that have met or exceeded the stringent requirements of the certification program.


“We’ve worked hard to stay ahead of the curve in the collision repair industry,” said Northwest Autobody & Towing, Inc. owners Eric and Cory Donenfeld. “This official certification demonstrates that commitment to our customers. We take pride in our highly trained technicians who use the latest tools and equipment to deliver a top quality repair and the best customer service.”


The certification criteria is based upon auto manufacturer requirements. These are critical to ensuring the vehicle fit, finish, durability, value and safety following an accident. As new model vehicles are being introduced that use lightweight, high strength materials and advanced technology, a proper repair according to manufacturer specification is even more important than ever to ensure passenger safety and proper performance of the vehicle. Auto manufacturers want to ensure that consumers have the option of certified collision repair wherever they live, work, or travel.

 

“Consumers need the confidence and peace of mind to know their vehicle is repaired by a shop that has what it takes to ensure the vehicle safety. Northwest Autobody & Towing, Inc. is officially a collision care provider,” said Scott Biggs, CEO of Assured Performance Collision Care. “They represent the standard by which all other body shops are measured.”
