What is VeriFacts VQ?

How do I achieve VQ (Verified Quality) Shop Status?
To become VQ, a coach will first give a shop a Quality Calibration. Then they will return for unannounced monthly visits. After each monthly visit, a report of the coach’s feedback will be delivered to management. Once a shop has demonstrated that they perform the proper repairs based on that feedback, a shop will be invited to become a Verified Quality (VQ) shop. VQ shops commit to performing the correct repair each and every time.
How long does it take to become VQ after I sign up?
After you sign up, your local VeriFacts coach will arrange a time to do a Quality Calibration. Since the Quality Calibration takes people away from their duties for an hour to an hour-and-a-half, we must arrange a time that works for you. After the Quality Calibration, it will take a minimum of 2 additional monthly visits to achieve VQ status.
How does the monthly coaching work?
VeriFacts coaches are experts in collision repair, chosen from only the best and most experienced in the industry. A coach will go into a shop unannounced, at least once a month and verify inputs and outputs. If coaching is required, the coach works directly with the technician.

What are the requirements to become VQ?
