Crash Champions Earns NSF Collision Certification

NSF International announced it has certified seven Crash Champions locations throughout the Chicago area.

NSF International, an independent public health and safety organization with 75 years of independent testing, auditing and certification expertise, announced it has certified seven Crash Champions locations throughout the Chicago area. Earning NSF International certification demonstrates Crash Champions’ commitment to providing the highest level of customer satisfaction and exceptional repair services.

NSF International’s independent, third-party collision repair shop certification assesses and evaluates a shop’s ability to meet specific quality, operations, and training and technical service requirements. These requirements include following OE repair procedures, providing exemplary customer service, assessing staff competency, ensuring the proper equipment is used for the repair, documenting procedures and meeting facility requirements. If a shop meets these requirements and successfully passes its audit, NSF International certification is granted. Certification categories include refinish, steel structural and advanced material structural. Crash Champions shops earned advanced material structural certification, meaning they are certified to conduct structural repairs on non-steel parts.

“We are excited to announce that all seven of our Crash Champions locations have gone through NSF International’s extensive certification process and met all certification requirements,” said Matt Ebert, CEO of Crash Champions. “It was not easy, but thanks to our team, we passed the audit and met all requirements including the repair inspections which evaluate the entire repair process.”

In addition to the initial audit to earn certification, Crash Champions will undergo ongoing audits to ensure continued compliance with NSF International certification requirements. Crash Champions’ repairs are backed by a lifetime warranty.

“NSF International collision repair shop certification recognizes shops like Crash Champions with outstanding collision experts that go above and beyond to provide high-quality repairs and excellent customer service,” said Dave Parzen, senior technical manager, NSF International.

The latest "Who Pays for What?" survey from Collision Advice and CRASH Network indicates that more than three in five shops (61%) say they're researching automaker repair procedures on “all” or “most” of the vehicles they repair, a nine percentage point gain since 2020.

“It’s still not a high enough percentage, because this must be done every time, but at least awareness of this vital step is increasing,” said Mike Anderson of Collision Advice, who conducts the quarterly surveys with CRASH Network. “OEM information is complex, and can change. I recently wrote an estimate on three of the same year and model of vehicles, but the alignment procedures and battery disconnect procedures were different based on trim levels and engine types.”
