Awards & Accreditations
At Cougar we work with independent industry experts. Their job is to check that our repairs meet the highest level of technical expertise and professional standards.
BSI Kitemark Accredited
Cougar is licensed and regulated by the Quality Assured British Standard BSI Kitemark BS10125+A1 accreditation for Vehicle Body Repair, including category 3 structural aluminium, in Luton Bedfordshire.
The BSI Kitemark is a quality mark to reassure you that the highest standards of repair have been applied to your vehicle. This means that the actual repair has been carried out safely, using the right materials and by skilled technicians, so your vehicle offers you the same protection as it did before your accident.
It also establishes that we have auditing systems in place, to make sure that our people are fully trained, and the techniques used are correct to industry standards.
