The most important benefit you can get is knowing you are among the select few automotive repair shops in the state of California who put the customer first and are willing to fly the ASCCA flag to prove it. You've put your badge on the table and promised to provide first class service in an honest and straightforward manner.

We all know the characterizations you labor under and we work daily to change that perception both in the minds of the public and in the minds of the legislators who govern your every move. Let's work together to establish new standards for every member to hit and make our shops examples for the nation. Join Now!
