It’s now official: Ric’s Body & Paint in Scottsdale is part of the world’s most advanced network of collision repair facilities. Ric’s was officially certified by Assured Performance, a prestigious, nonprofit consumer advocacy organization that evaluates shops, using a rigorous set of standards to ensure they have the proper tools, equipment, training, and facilities to repair vehicles to manufacturer specifications. Assured Performance is the world’s largest Certified Business Network in the automotive industry, dedicated to making sure the next generation of vehicles are properly repaired and to ensure their fit, finish, durability, value, and safety.
Assured Performance partners with some of the world’s top auto manufacturers (like Nissan, Infiniti, Fiat/Chrysler, Hyundai, and Kia) to certify collision repair shops, and only one-in-ten makes the cut. In order to become and remain certified, collision repair shops must meet requirements established by the auto manufacturers and pass an annual on-site inspection-audit.
Ric’s Body & Paint doesn’t take this prestigious designation lightly. “Our business has been built on a foundation of excellence and ethical business practices. We strive to provide the highest- quality repair for our customers. Our state-of-the-art facility and certified technicians give us the ability to achieve this Certified status,” says owner Dean Slaughter. Because certification criteria are based on auto manufacturer requirements, he recognizes the value to consumers of this best-of-the-best designation. “Consumers need the confidence and peace of mind to know their vehicle is being repaired by a shop that has what it takes to ensure the vehicle safety. Ric’s Body & Paint is officially a Collision Care Provider™,” said Scott Biggs, CEO of Assured Performance Collision Care™,” adding, “they represent the standard by which all other body shops are measured.”
