WILLIS COLLISION CENTER BECOMES 1ST TESLA APPROVED BODY SHOP NETWORK FACILITY IN IOWA4/2/2019
Willis Automotive is pleased to announce today that it is the first certified Tesla Approved Body Shop Network facility in the state of Iowa. Along with a team of expert technicians that understand the complex process and the latest in automobile technology, Willis Collision Center is now equipped with a dedicated set of tools solely for the repair of aluminum vehicles.
The Tesla vehicle body structure incorporates advanced aluminum and steel casting, as well as extrusion and stamped panel technology. Aluminum body panels are lighter than typical steel panels, therefore, delicate to repair. After months of training, the team at Willis Collision Center is now certified to rebuild Tesla vehicles to the original specifications, for structural integrity and quality of finish. In addition to Tesla vehicles, the collision center has the capability to repair most other aluminum vehicles such as those from Ford, BMW and Cadillac.
“Repairing aluminum vehicles is very labor-intensive requiring careful monitoring and specialized equipment. The skills our technicians have gained to work on aluminum vehicles will further diversify our Willis Collision Center capabilities,” said Jason Willis, fixed operations director, Willis Automotive. “At Willis Collision Center we strive to remain number one in service throughout the state of Iowa. Until now, Tesla vehicle owners had to go out of state for any vehicle repairs and with over 600 Tesla vehicles in the state we are proud to be the first and only Tesla certified repair center.”
Willis Collision Center maintains a reputation of excellent service and quality work that is guaranteed for as long as the customer owns the vehicle. They provide pick-up and delivery anywhere in the state of Iowa for customer vehicle repairs. Willis Collision works with all auto insurance companies and always provides the ultimate guest experience. Staying true to the Willis Automotive Core Values, they hope the collision center can fulfill any guest’s expectations. For more information visit, www.williscollision.com
