Fix Auto USA Is First Franchise to Commit to VeriFacts VQ Repair Process Certification

VeriFacts Automotive announced that Fix Auto USA has committed to VeriFacts VQ certification across its franchise facilities. The performance-based collision repair organization is the first franchise MSO to fully adopt the third-party verification program, according to VeriFacts.

The VeriFacts VQ Program assists shops with identifying and inspecting all shop equipment related to a structural repair. Information and materials used for that repair are reviewed, and the shop’s standard operating procedures (SOPs) are evaluated, as well. The program gives shops a way to verify they are in compliance with acceptable structural repair processes through a qualified, objective third party.

“By executing a franchise-wide verification program, Fix Auto is setting the bar high for quality verification among owner-operated MSOs,” said VeriFacts CEO and Co-Founder Farzam Afshar. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Fix Auto USA and are confident the VQ program will prove a great resource for them.”

“Our members’ decision to implement the program is a great testament to the organization’s commitment to continuous improvement and transparency,” said Fix Auto President and COO Paul Gange. “Adding third-party verification to the reporting tools and programs Fix Auto already has in place positions our company to provide the best possible quality to our insurance and consumer customers.”

California-based Fix Auto has 188 network locations, including 43 franchised locations.
