No one wants to have an accident in their automobile. But the facts say that the average person will need the services of an automotive body repair shop about once every seven years. The collision repair professionals of the GCIA, Georgia Collision Industry Association, hope you never need our services. But when you do, we want you to be able to say you were treated fairly and received your repaired vehicle back in pre-loss condition by one of our member shops.
Nationwide, automotive body repairers and painters held about 200,000 jobs in 2007. Many of these jobs are held by the professionals of the GCIA. From dealership body shops to the independent operations to all the associated manufacturers and suppliers of our industry’s needs; the GCIA brings them all together for one common cause:
“To Promote Professionalism and Consumer Awareness of the Automotive Collision Repair Industry in the State of Georgia.”
This site is intended to address the needs of the GCIA members as well as the consumer. It is our belief that open and honest communications with our members and customers will benefit all parties involved and we encourage everyone to let us hear your thoughts, comments and suggestions. Email the Executive Director, Howard Batchelor at Howard@GCIA.org. The members of the GCIA have a thirst for knowledge and new ideas and we always try to “Better Our Best”.
Welcome to our site and thanks for visiting. Do come again!
