Over the last few years the technology in car manufacturing has improved significantly, with the use of stronger materials, among other advancements. Cars are now manufactured to be stronger and faster. With this evolvement in the materials that are now used and the manufacturing process, panel beaters also need to be evolved, educated and qualified in order to repair these new, high standard vehicles. The kinds of materials used, like steel and aluminium, need to be repaired correctly; a bad repair could compromise the safety of your vehicle in a possible collision and most importantly, the safety of yourself and your entire family.
The Collision Repairers Association (CRA) is an organisation that promotes panel beaters and repair shops to maintain and deliver a high standard and world class service to all their clients, ensuring that the risks involved in a possible future collision is minimal. If a panel beater or repair shop is a member of the CRA, they will have the CRA logo placed in their shop and/or on their website, proving to potential clients that their safety is a priority.
