Schaefer Autobody Centers Earns Member Preferred Recognition from AAA Missouri

Published Sept. 11, 2023

Schaefer Autobody Centers is proud to announce the Auto Club of Missouri, commonly known as AAA Missouri, has recognized Schaefer Autobody Centers’ Maplewood, MO, location as part of its prestigious Member Preferred Recognition (MPR) program. An outstanding service plaque and catered lunch were presented to the facility's team Aug. 31.

In speaking to the shop’s employees, AAA Missouri’s MPR Team Manager Nick Rohde said, “Out of 240 shops, you guys were in the top 2%. So, we just want to say thank you to all you do for us and our customers every day.” Rohde was joined by AAA Missouri’s Unit Manager Jeff McSpadden, MPR Reinspector/APD Field Appraiser Jon Cochran and Claims Operations Group Manager Sherry VanBooven, along with Schaefer Autobody Centers’ Vice President Jaime Matthews and Operations Manager Aaron Burchett.

The inaugural program from AAA Missouri identifies Schaefer Autobody Centers’ Maplewood facility as the fifth best-performing collision repair facility of 240 qualified shops by MSI (Member Service Index) and overall CCC scorecard. The St. Louis-based auto body shop was one of nine facilities selected by the MPR program for outstanding performance in the first half of 2023.

“I’m incredibly proud of our Maplewood shop,” said Burchett. “They clearly understand ensuring customer satisfaction---alongside the fit, finish and safety of each vehicle---is our ultimate goal, and AAA Missouri’s recognition speaks to the team’s commitment.”

Schaefer Autobody Centers in Maplewood opened in July 2015 and employs 18 full-time workers. The repair facility is located at 7920 Jaguar Trails in St. Louis County, and carries OEM certifications for five automakers: BMW, Acura, Honda, Subaru and VW. Certifications ensure vehicle manufacturers trust and certify a facility to perform auto body repairs to factory standards.

The shop’s General Manager Larry Crews added, “Being recognized for acts we consider part of our job says a lot about the dedication of this team. Thank you, AAA Missouri, for recognizing us.”
