Bradan is proud to announce we have been sponsored for BMW collision repair training. This will give us direct access to BMW's collision repair training centers and programs. Our frame jig bench, measuring system, welders and paint are already OEM approved by BMW. BMW is a brand we have always been enthusiasts and long term customers of, making it a natural choice for us in addition to a few other OEM programs we will announce when finalized. This means accident damaged BMWs will be brought back to pre accident condition using strictly OEM parts and procedures that directly comply and follow BMW's engineer's strict standards. You have a choice to which collision repair facility you allow to fix your vehicle; don’t let insurance companies steer you to one of their direct repair shops, or tell you how it should be fixed. The adjuster's job is to minimize the claim payout, which often means pushing to use recycled or aftermarket parts. This leaves your car worse off then it was originally and possibly a diminished value claim. We guarentee our repairs as long as you own or lease your vehicle and will even cover your rental car if it exceeds your policy limit.
Our first day of training was held at BMW of North Americas Woodcliff Lake, NJ which is home of not only their headquarters; but also their repair and collision center. The building is divided into smaller workshops that teach everything from the BMW step apprentice program, motorcycle repair, Rolls Royce, paint, and structural repairs. BMW uses their own brand of paint manufactured by Axalta in water based form. Notice the additional fans for air movement in the corners of their Global spray booths. Their mixing room is similar to ours in that it's directly linked to the side of the spray booth; allowing paint to be mixed and then move into the spray booth without passing through the workshop (avoiding contamination). For structural repairs they use a combination of Cellete, Car-o-liner, and Carbench which is the same frame jig bench we use.
The first training class I attended and was certified in is “High Voltage Vehicle Body Repair." This applies to their hybrid vehicles that show how to correctly disarm the electrical system. This avoids a possible fatal shock in an accident, or damaging the vehicle's electronic systems during repair. We look forward to continuing our education and training.
