Wheels, Inc., a leader in the multi-billion-dollar fleet leasing industry, announced that its Collision Management Program will be awarded the Gold Class Professionals designation by the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) for the eleventh consecutive year.

I-CAR is recognized across the automotive repair and insurance industries as the gold standard in collision repair and service certification. Its Gold Class Professionals rating, awarded to organizations that employ I-CAR Platinum Individual-certified professionals in a number of technical disciplines, is among the highest recognitions for collision training a business can earn.

On Monday I-CAR confirmed that Wheels met the requirements needed for certification this year, and would be officially recognized as a Gold Class Professionals company later this month.

“Wheels maintains this rating by providing our Collision Repair Specialists with ongoing training for Platinum-level I-CAR certification, which helps ensure that they always have the knowledge and skills necessary to best manage our clients' repairs,” said Jeff Whiteside, Director of Maintenance and Collision at Wheels. “As a result, Wheels has continued our ranking among the industry leaders in low cost-per-repair averages and fast repair turnaround times.”
