Where to go
After an Auto Accident
“Is everyone okay?” In the aftermath of an accident, that’s a typical first response. From there, the attention can then shift to the vehicle. “Is everything okay?” At which point you’re left wondering, “Okay, where do I go from here.”
When it comes to getting a vehicle put back together, you’re best served to have the repairs performed by a reputable shop whose work you can trust, a shop that will use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts for the repair. When the vehicle in question is a Ford, the Ford Certified Collision Network (FCCN) provides you with collision centers dedicated to doing just that.
Certified makes all the difference
Certified shops like those you’ll find through the FCCN are proven experts in Ford vehicles and repair procedures. They’re focused on preserving the integrity of the vehicle and providing the safest possible repairs – with the credentials to back that up. After all, no one knows Ford better than Ford.
To provide you with the right repair, a shop should know the distinct differences between OEM parts and substitute aftermarket, salvage or counterfeit parts for your repairs. Beyond fit issues, these can result in a fix that ultimately compromises the safety and operation of your “repaired” vehicle.
The right tools and procedures matter
The complexity of today’s vehicles makes it more important than ever to find a repair shop that’s up to the task of getting your vehicle back to pre-accident condition.
FCCN shops have the latest training, equipment and repair procedures to handle the intricate vehicle systems, sheet metal and even things like the aluminum-alloy panels on Ford trucks and SUVs. Plus, they can give you a lifetime limited warranty* on all repairs.
Remember, even if your insurance company wants to steer you in another direction, you have the right to choose where you take your vehicle after an accident. It’s your call. And with a network of more than 1,200 collision centers across the country, the FCCN ensures the right call is easy to make.
