Advantages of a Dealership with a Body Shop and Service Centre

Advantages of a Dealership with a Body Shop and Service Centre


With the annual cost of car ownership estimated at $8,469 per year in 2017, it is expected that at some point,
you'll need to have your car inspected, serviced, or repaired. So, should you
take your car to a dealership, a mechanic, or a body shop for routine
maintenance and repairs?

One option that's becoming increasingly popular is to use an auto
dealership that also has a body shop and a service centre. Not only does having
all your car ownership needs under one roof save time, there are other
advantages to working with a dealership that has a body shop and service

Enhanced Customer Service 

With a fully integrated dealership, you are likely to have access
to a more personalized customer-service experience.  With experienced
service managers whose goal is to assist you through the process, and trained
mechanics and technicians available to diagnose and repair your car troubles,
you have a chance to build a long-term personal relationship with the business.
Other benefits include: 

  • Access
    to perks such as loaner or rental cars for you to use while your vehicle
    is being repaired; complementary inspections or maintenance. 
  • It
    allows for easy transition between the stages of vehicle ownership. 
  • It
    saves you the time needed to travel between businesses. 
  • Access
    to extended and lifetime warranties of parts and repairs, saving you money
    in the long run. 

More Knowledgeable and Skilled Staff

Dealership employees, including the technicians and mechanics,
have more technical training and are more knowledgeable about the specific make
and model of your vehicle than a stand-alone mechanic or body shop may have.
This is typically because: 

  • Many
    dealerships require their mechanics and technicians to participate in
    ongoing training, so they keep up with the latest manufacturing and
    technological developments. 
  • Dealerships
    are mandated to meet training, equipment, safety and quality requirements
    as stipulated by car manufacturers.
  • Specialized
    knowledge is required to maintain the structural integrity of your
  • Work
    not completed by certified technicians runs the risk of violating
    warranties or damaging the vehicle beyond repair. 

Type of Repairs and Services at an All-in-One:

Dealerships are required to sell and use certified parts from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), limiting the potential for damage. The
dealerships' access to specialized parts and materials results in faster repair
and delivery of services.

     Dealerships can handle all types of repairs
and services for your vehicle, including: 

  • Complete
    collision repair service, including the repair of car frames, chassis, and
  • Cracked
    windshield repairs, including hail damage.
  • Regular
    maintenance, including oil and filter changes, tire rotations, brake
    system maintenance, and emission service.
  • Painting
    and customizations.

for scheduled maintenance, ultimately, it is your individual needs that
determine where you get service. In Edmonton, Alberta,
