Traditionally, if your car required specific repairs using original equipment and manufacturer parts, the answers would only come from a dealership. At times, that resulted in a questionable invoice and a feeling unsure. As technology has changes, consumers have more viable options for vehicle repair. Flower Hill Auto Body has been a trusted body shop for over sixty years and to this day we have more OEM certifications than any body shop from Montauk to Manhattan.
Repairing your vehicle with original equipment manufacturer parts ensures the best overall fit and function. Having an OEM certification also lets you know that the technicians performing the repairs are skilled and knowledgeable about the entire procedure. These high-quality repairs require extensive training to maintain the manufacturer’s guidelines, and it requires the facility to have the proper equipment as well.
Don’t be fooled by other auto repair shops when they try to convince you that OEM parts aren’t that important, because there are multiple benefits to using them in the repair process:
- Longevity – Using aftermarket parts instead of OEM can harm your vehicle through extra wear-and-tear or breaking, costing you more money in the long run.
- Guaranteed Quality and Fit – When you choose OEM parts for your vehicle repairs, you will have a better selection of parts specifically designed to fit perfectly with your vehicle. No more guessing whether or not a part with work; its perfect fit is a guarantee!
- Better Performance and Efficiency – OEM parts provide a guaranteed match for manufacturer standards, to help your vehicle’s performance instead of hindering it. Aftermarket parts can fail much sooner than OEM parts, causing poor performance and even decreased fuel efficiency.
- Warranty Coverage – Most warranties have stipulations when it comes to repairs, and using OEM parts is the best way to ensure that you won’t lose coverage when needing repairs.
