Why accredited workshops are the way to go

A few reasons – from compliance to ongoing training – why accreditation is highly valued by customers.

With consumers watching every penny, many may be tempted to go what they perceive as the ‘cheaper route’ of an unaccredited workshop. We recently released communication in the press about why this is not, in fact, the wise choice. We pointed out factors such as the lack of recourse available to customers who make use of unaccredited workshops, as well as the fact that they cannot be sure that the workshop is compliant with all relevant legislation, including COVID-19 regulations. We also pointed out that our accredited workshops are backed by the RMI, and that with more than 2 500 workshops across the country, customers are certain to find one in their area – plus, they can be assured that all staff members at these workshops receive regular training and upskilling so that their knowledge is at the cutting edge. Finally, we reminded customers that our MIWA accredited workshops undergo regular audits, so they are guaranteed the very best service and parts.
