RainTree Auto Body is one of the few automotive body shops I’ve ever seen that guarantees their work, for life! Located Scottsdale Arizona, RainTree Auto Body has been serving up the highest quality Body work since 1972. It’s a rare thing these days to see repair shop issue their own warranty terms based on their confidence and quality assurance. In a world where it’s much easier to hide behind the warranty statement of a larger company and its terms, you can see how any business would have to be very confident in their work to make claims of a lifetime warranty.
With my curiosity piqued, I went to find out a little more about how exactly RainTree Auto Body is able to make good on this warranty. Turns out there are several things which allow for a rigid quality assurance, here is what I discovered.
• I-Car Gold Class Certification - I-CAR is an independent organization created to assure quality collision repair techniques and results. To be gold class certified, you need individuals trained and certified in the areas of Steel Structural, Aluminum Structural, Non-Structural and Electrical/Mechanical. This is important to everyone because who really wants someone "learning" structural repair on their Vehicle.
• BASF Vision Plus refinish warranty. - Carries a lifetime warranty against cracking, peeling, hazing, chalking and fading. Quite literally, you won’t have to pay for another refinish job until you decide you want to. Turns out this warranty is actually redeemable throughout North America.
• Cellette Certification - This certification demands that you keep pace with the constant evolution of the automotive industry. Cellette keeps their certified technicians up to date by working with vehicle manufacturers to provide information on the newest structural designs and how to repair them.
With these things in place, you can easily see that your collision repair is protected by multiple layers of training and quality assurance. Furthermore, RainTree Auto Body is factory trained by Mercedes-Benz. So if you’re looking for someone to restore your Mercedes back to the showroom level of shine and performance, these are the guys to see.
Just to let you know, if you've never had to look into collision repair before it would be prudent to familiarize yourself with state law and insurance policies. Most people aren’t aware that you as the driver have the right to choose your repair shop. It’s important to take this into account because your vehicle can represent the second largest investment of your lifetime. Choosing a shop based on the lowest quote for repair can be detrimental not only to the value of your vehicle, but also to your safety. A lowball quote for repair can mean that the technicians might cut corners, and the structural integrity of your vehicle can suffer, leaving you unprotected in the event of another collision.
