Unfortunately, industry training and certifications are not required for operation of an auto body shop in Alberta or Saskatchewan. At City Center Auto Body, we feel it is important to maintain our equipment, skills, technician training and customer service levels to ensure we meet and exceed the criteria for industry accreditations and certifications. Both of our auto body shop locations in Lloydminster, AB and Lloydminster, SK are also approved by the CAA® and Canada’s most respected auto insurance providers. This requires investment of time and money, but we feel the quality control is well deserved by our clients, and it helps new customers feel comfortable that they are working with a quality repair center. With our certifications and available nationwide transferable lifetime warranty, we're prepared to repair your ride and ensure you're happy with our service for the lifetime of your vehicle.
