Mitchell Honors Top-Performing Collision Repair Facilities with AutocheX Premier Achiever Awards

The 2016 AutocheX Premier Achiever Awards honors top-performing collision repair facilities throughout the United States for their superior customer service and support.

Mitchell International recently announced the winners of the 2016 AutocheX Premier Achiever Awards, honoring top-performing collision repair facilities throughout the United States for their superior customer service and support.

“The AutocheX Premier Achiever Awards recipients demonstrate the impeccable customer satisfaction and support all repair facilities should strive for,” said Jack Rozint, vice president of sales and service at San Diego-based Mitchell International. “Customers entrust repair facilities with their damaged vehicles, and those honored this year truly embody all that the AutocheX Premier Achiever Awards represent. We congratulate the winners for their ongoing commitment to meeting and exceeding customer expectations and their efforts in making the customer experience a priority for their businesses.”

Recipients of the 15th annual AutocheX Premier Achiever Awards include collision repair facilities of all sizes. The winners are being honored for consistently receiving high customer satisfaction scores as measured by Mitchell’s AutocheX customer satisfaction solution, either independently or as part of an insurance-sponsored repair program.

“Customer service is the differentiating factor between us and our competitors,” said Sam Arvizu of Mike’s Auto Body in Walnut Creek, Calif. “AutocheX enables us to understand our downsides and delivers to us opportunity to improve. We use AutocheX as a learning tool to provide us continuous focus on customer service.”

The Mitchell AutocheX program surveys customers from the 7,500 repair facilities actively participating in the program. Customers are asked to rate their overall experience in terms of customer service and satisfaction, among other detailed experience-related questions.

Since the award program was launched in 2002, Mitchell has presented more than 4,000 AutocheX Premier Achiever Awards to industry-leading collision repair facilities.

Survey Finds More Body Shops Researching OEM Repair Procedures

The latest “Who Pays for What?” survey indicates that 61% of shops say they’re researching OE procedures on “all” or “most” vehicles.

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.”
