Manufacturing Standards

Manufacturer Approved Car Body Repairer
Compliant With Our Approved Manufacturing Standards

Fix Auto Blackburn are a family run car body repair business, first established as a wheelwrights and blacksmiths by the Gillibrand family in 1859. Our reputation in the motor industry has been built up over 160 years of service. We have many manufacturer approvals which include Audi, Seat, Skoda, Volkswagen, Volvo, Ford, Toyota and The VW group Paint and Body. You can be confident when picking Fix Auto Blackburn as a Manufacturer Approved Car Body Repair centre that we will repair your car to manufacturer methods and will always use genuine parts on every repair.

The repair will be second to none, from using manufacturer approved paint to using manufacturer diagnostic machines. We can access the various modern-day systems which include calibrating lane change assist, calibration of the adaptive cruise control, calibrating the reverse camera and the re programming of matrix / led headlamps.

There are many reasons why it becomes essential that that these systems are calibrated correctly including, when a geometry has been carried out, performing accident repair work on the boot lid / tailgate, carrying out mechanical work on the rear axle, front and back bumpers being removed and refitted.

These systems are restricted to authorised users only and we have access to online technical data with each system providing the latest information for most of our manufacturer approved vehicles. The nature of this work is to put owners and the vehicle back to pre-accident condition and not compromise on cost and the integrity of the repair and that we also comply with the manufacturers repair methods at all times.

We employ manufacturer trained ATA VDA estimators and who use an industry recognised Audatex system which we have yearly re certification courses on. These are in place to ensure, along with our BSi accreditation only manufacturer repair methods, parts and repair times are used to ensure cars are repaired correctly.

Every department within the business are sent to manufacturers for up to date training.

We pride ourselves in trying to be the best and keep in line with the ever-increasing vehicle technology.
