What We Do
Why Join Key Choice?
Our history: Key Choice was created by a group of collision repair specialists who recognized the need for very specific training that members of their industry could otherwise not find. Since our beginning, we have focused on developing our own systems and creating product pricing systems for every geographic area we represent. Our “Request for Proposal” process addresses material costs and offers industry leading training (i.e. lean, SOPs, etc.), while our members have all excelled financially, with every shop experiencing large efficiency increases due to our self-directed training efforts.

Why Choose Key Choice: Key Choice Collision Centers are a group of member-operated, top-operating collision shops looking to help our member shops constantly improve and raise the bar when it comes to performance and profitability. As an independent organization, we don’t follow anyone’s agenda, and we create our own direction based on the needs of our members at any given time. We have a highly trained and experienced group of paint technicians, metal technicians, office personnel, and management trainers to assist our member institutions. We strive to be associated with other high-performing shops in order to share ideas and best practices and to create a group that can experience rising sales, lower product and equipment costs, and continuing learning opportunities, including the best speakers and training available. Our national account status has given us the ability to create opportunities not possible with smaller groups or individual shops.
We expect our members to be proactive, willing to accept change on a daily basis and be patient during the process of transformation for their shops. Members must also prepare their staff for the inevitable change to their production processes by educating them on the benefits of Key Choice membership.
Key Choice is your support group when you become a member. We want your auto body shop to succeed and enjoy the tangible results our other members have experienced and continue to experience, including:
- Savings in product usage
- Increased profits
- Increased sales production
