Eustis Body Shop in Grand Island has been officially certified by Assured Performance, a nonprofit consumer advocacy organization, for maintaining the right tools, equipment, training, and facility necessary to repair the participating automaker brand vehicles according to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Certification means that Eustis Body Shop is now an integral part of the most advanced repair capable and efficient auto body repair network in the world. The shop is officially recognized by Assured Performance, GM, FCA, Ford, Nissan and Hyundai.

Less than 5% of body shops across the nation are able to meet the stringent requirements to become officially certified and recognized. The certified network is made up exclusively of best-in-class collision repair businesses that have met or exceeded the stringent requirements of the certification program.

The certification criteria are based upon auto manufacturer requirements. These are critical to ensure the vehicle fit, finish, durability, value and safety following an accident.

“This certification supports our reputation for superior customer service serving our community,” said Doug Keller, the body shop’s owner. “It is important to provide our customers with the peace of mind that their vehicles are being repaired correctly by highly trained professionals that care about them.”
