Auto Repair Certification

Auto Repair Facility Certification-The most recognized source for Communication and Service Repair Standards in the Automotive Service Industry.

Communication

Strategic Alliance Group (SAG) and the Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association/Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) have essentially provided the standards the auto repair industry has long needed. The industry recognized that need, and came together to develop a series of Uniform Inspection and Communication Standards. The guidelines give consumers the information they need to make an educated decision on repairs for their vehicle. The customer and shop technician together use the guidelines to agree on the work the shop will do on his or her vehicle, thus eliminating confusion or mistrust.

Uniformity

Repair shops who participate in the Motorist Assurance Program display a decal. They agree to adhere to the MAP Pledge of Assurance to Customers, and the Standards of Service. Consumers benefit from:

  • Better understanding of the vehicle's problem(s) and what repairs are "Required" v. "Suggested"
  • A minimum warranty of 90 days or 4,000 miles; and Uniformity of recommendations from one shop to another when the customer seeks a second opinion from another participating facility

MAP Qualified Program

Every MAP Participating Facility is required to have at least one (1) associate that is MAP Qualified. In order to become MAP Qualified a person must demonstrate their ability to use the MAP Process to communicate more effectively and consistently with your consumers and prospects.

Auto Repair Facility Certification - AMRA/MAP

Strategic Alliance Group and the Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association/Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) have essentially provided the standards the auto repair industry has long needed. The industry recognized that need, and came together to develop a series of Uniform Inspection and Communication Standards. The guidelines give consumers the information they need to make an educated decision on repairs for their vehicle. The customer and shop technician together use the guidelines to agree on the work the shop will do on his or her vehicle, thus eliminating confusion or mistrust.

Reputation Management through Social Media

The Automotive Marketing Foundation (AMF) is comprised of a group of business executives who have combined their expertise in the automotive aftermarket with proficiency in the latest marketing strategies made possible by the expanding online technologies available. Effectively reaching an audience in need of automotive services has historically been an expensive, inexact process. Today’s buying public is all too willing to share their opinions, friends, interests, buying habits and locations in a never-ending quest for communication. This allows the savvy business owner to step into that flow of communication and snag the attention, interest and loyalty of a wide range of consumers.


The AMF is committed to sharing with owners of automotive aftermarket businesses how this process works and provide tools that reduce the effort required to execute this strategy to a few minutes per week. As with all new technology, there will be many members of the automotive aftermarket who will remain totally unaware of these strategies and will continue down a legacy path of print ads, radio and billboards. However, those who adapt to key online strategies early on will, at least for the next few years, enjoy a significant advantage over those who may not be paying attention to this major shift in marketing strategy.
