    Does your workshop qualify ?

    Does your workshop qualify to become a MIWA Graded Workshop?

    Being a MIWA Accredited Workshop is already very prestigious, as it ensures clients of the quality service and workmanship they can expect. Yet your workshop may even be on the standard of a MIWA Graded Workshop, which is a notch higher, without you knowing it.
    It’s to a workshop’s benefit to be Graded, as MIWA’s long term vision is for all Graded Workshops to become Master Technician Workshops that will be qualified to handle all repairs once the Right to Repair campaign has been legalised.
    In order to become a Graded Workshop, a workshop must meet the accreditation requirements, as well as the graded criteria above and beyond those requirements. These additional requirements are:

    • Floors – work bays must be demarcated with yellow lines
    • Having a customer satisfaction follow-up system in place that must be able to be audited
    • Vehicles must be washed, dried and vacuumed before delivery
    • Free delivery and collection service has to be available
