Collision Repairers Association (CRA) was registered in late 2013 and in relation to our young age have provided real benefits with regard to procurement practices. Major achievements relate to transparent relationship with fair trade terms and conditions with in most instances guaranteed labour rates at sustainable levels. Our industry first achievement is based on the auto escalation of rates effective in September each year at the same rate agreed to by MIBCO in relation to salary increases automatically without the need to apply.
We pride ourselves in assuring potential clients of capability, credibility and qualification based on annual grading and publish an internet based online research database to confirm full history of compliance from SARS through MIBCO and health and safety compliance to work providers. To this end Mazda have confirmed our members capability and provide CRA members of standards compliance recommended repairer approval.
