CERTIFIED MERCEDES BENZ AUTO COLLISION FACILITY
Caruso’s Auto-Motive is proud to announce that we have been CERTIFIED by Mercedes Benz USA to repair all Mercedes Benz vehicles because we have all of the required equipment approved by Mercedes Benz USA.
CELETTE frame equipment is the only straightening equipment approved by Mercedes Benz.
CELETTE equipment offers ZERO tolerance.
With CELETTE, we are able to determine damages not normally determined by other equipment.
Our technicians continually receive training in the latest technology to provide the highest quality of repairs.
When performing any repairs on Mercedes Benz vehicles, the correct procedures must be followed along with correct materials, tools, and equipment.
Celette works closely with Mercedes Benz in designing and building dedicated fixture sets which not only provide for accurate component locations, but also provide a safe proper anchoring of the vehicle during the pulling operations.
The fixture sets for the repair of Mercedes Benz vehicles are Model specific.
STANDARD PROCEDURES USED IN OUR SHOP TO OBTAIN HIGH QUALITY REPAIRS:
PROTECTION COVER: A water-soluble substance is sprayed on your vehicle. When it dries, it forms a cellophane film. This protects your vehicle from overspray.
COLOR MATCH: The proper tinting of paint for a blendable match. Your vehicle has a “paint code.”
COLOR BLEND: “FEATHERING” the color into the adjacent panel and then applying clear coat (paint with no color). This ensures the blend will not scale or peel away.
COLOR SAND AND RUB: “Wet Sanding” your finish with ultra-fine sand paper, compounding to a luster, pressure-washing to get rid of excess residue and hand polishing.
R & I ACCESSORIES: Removal and Installation of all trim (moldings, door handles, emblems, etc.) before the car is painted. This procedure yields better results than taping around these areas.
UNIBODY REPAIR EQUIPMENT: Choose a shop that has I-CAR and ASE certification systems.
OEM REPLACEMENT PARTS: We use genuine manufacturer replacement parts. We do NOT use “Aftermarket” parts.
