SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2013) - RepairPal, the number one destination for auto repair and maintenance information online, today announced it more than doubled the number of certified, trusted repair shops in its RepairPal Certified shop network in 2013, surpassing 430 qualified automotive repair shops in 43 states. In an industry marked by uncertainty and mistrust by consumers, the growth of the Top Shop network is a testament to increasing consumer demand for transparency in auto repair and verified, high quality repair shops.
RepairPal Certified Top Shops Undeniably Best in Industry
To qualify as a RepairPal Certified shop, auto repair facilities must pass a rigorous screening and be graded by RepairPal's team of ASE-certified master mechanics. All RepairPal Certified shops must also agree to charge prices for repairs within the range of RepairPal's RepairPrice Estimator™. In addition, these shops must consistently deliver world-class service as measured through comprehensive interviews with verified customers and they must guarantee the quality of their work with a minimum 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.
"RepairPal is helping consumers find a simple answer to an age-old problem: where to find a trusted place to fix their cars. With our Certified Shop network, finding quality repairs at fair prices has never been easier," said Art Shaw, CEO of RepairPal. "This simple solution has clearly resonated with consumers and auto shops alike, as inquiries to our RepairPal Certified shops have grown almost 400 percent over the past year, driving more than $10 million a year in car repairs to shops within our network. In the end, everybody wins, plain and simple."
