Mercedes-Benz lives by a motto of "Das Beste oder nichts" which in English translates to "The Best or Nothing" and at V&J Auto Body we work very hard to live up to that motto. We have obtained the highest level of Mercedes Certification that exists, Mercedes-Benz Elite Aluminum Structural Shop. We are authorized to repair any vehicle ever built by Mercedes-Benz, not only cosmetic repairs, but when it is deemed necessary also structural repairs. V&J Auto Body is one of about 400 shops across the United States that are trained and authorized by Mercedes-Benz to perform Aluminum Repairs on there Vehicles. That means we hold a certification that less than 1% of shops in the United States have.
We take our Elite Aluminum Structural Certification very seriously, when you bring your vehicle in after an accident we work with your insurance company to make sure they understand what it takes to bring this vehicle back to Mercedes-Benz's standards. Educating your insurance company as is crucial because Mercedes designed their vehicles with safety being the most important thing, and they also designed the repairs to there vehicles in that same way. Some insurance companies like to cut corners to save a few dollars. At V&J Auto Body we go by the book, if Mercedes's Engineers designed a procedure there is a very good reason they designed it. We are not the engineers we are the professionals following the directions of the engineers.
We work with our partnering dealership to procure the parts for your repair, and then begin work on your Mercedes. Everytime we repair a Mercedes we design a repair plan for that vehicle, no two repairs are alike. We make sure to use the latest technology, tools, and training exclusive to Mercedes-Benz, during your repair we document every step of the way, so that in the event of a problem we can look back to make sure that all the proper steps and procedures were followed.
