Do they have the right tools for the job?

Back in the day, “collision repair” meant having a hammer on hand to knock out dents and a welding torch in the garage to do spot repairs on a frame, but it’s the twenty-first century. Modern cars use complex alloys, customized plastics, proprietary materials, and other bits and pieces to put together your car. A shop that’s gone through a manufacturer’s certification process will have the necessary tools to fix your car on hand. When it comes to your family’s safety, you shouldn’t skimp on the tools any more than you would the materials. Pfaff Autoworks has all the same tools as the dealerships. We are prepared and ready to take on your vehicle’s collision repairs.

Modern vehicles call for modern repair measures

The construction and design of cars are changing at an unprecedented pace. As a result, repairing cars has become a more complicated and involved endeavor. Your average repair shop has to be versed in materials science, electronics repair, metallurgy, and a host of other disciplines just to fix cars. A shop that works with the manufacturer doesn’t rest on its laurels; part of the certification process is constantly upgrading and improving. At Pfaff Autoworks, we are certified to work on some high-end brand vehicles under the Pfaff umbrella. Audi, BMW, McLaren, Volkswagen, Porsche, and Tesla are some of the brands that we specialize in. 

The right team to do the job 

Just like there’s a big difference between you and everyone else your doctor sees, there’s an enormous difference in the technology and construction of cars between different makes and models. A certified collision shop does away with these issues by only hiring trained, experienced technicians to handle the job. They know how your car was built and thus how to fix it.

There are many ways to choose the right collision repair shop. However, if you own a high-end vehicle of a brand under our certification umbrella, Pfaff Autoworks can do the repairs. Click here to find our contact information, schedule a test drive, or to speak with a representative.
