AAA Approved Auto Repair Long Beach WA

AAA – As Pacific County’s only AAA Approved Repair Facility, we have met strict criteria for technician certification, customer satisfaction, and up-to-date shop equipment:

“The AAA Approved Auto Repair program examines all aspects of a repair shop’s operation and awards approval to only the best shops in the business. Many motorists look to the AAA Approved Auto Repair logo as an assurance of the facility’s reliability, and AAA members get extra benefits from approved shops.”

These benefits are listed on an “AAA Member Bill of Rights” poster in our shop.  The Bill also includes free inspections when a member’s car is in the shop for any paid repair and an 18-month/18,000 mile warranty. We go beyond this with a 24-month/24,000 mile warranty.

ASE Affiliation

Finding a competent automotive technician can feel like a matter of chance. Thanks to the non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), you can enter a repair shop with confidence in the technician who will service your car.

Most automotive repair facilities employ at least one ASE certified technician. This allows them to hang an “ASE certified” sign. What you may not know is that ASE offers certification in 8 areas of automotive repair and also offers certification in Advanced Drivability for technicians highly skilled in computer diagnostics. Box K Auto Repair Technicians are certified in all 8 areas of automotive repair with 2 technicians holding Advanced Drivability credentials.

ASE tests are offered in a variety of automotive subjects twice a year. Eight different subjects are tested, and those who pass multiple tests become ASE Master Technicians. Certified technicians must undergo ongoing testing to certify that they continue to be at the top of their field as time goes on.

We are also proud affiliates of South Pacific County Technical Rescue, a local group of volunteers dedicated to dangerous water rescues in Pacific County. The entity was started by the Pacific County Sheriff in 1978. Box K's former owner Doug Knutzen was on the team from the beginning. In 1985, it became a non-governmental, non-profit entity. At that time, it expanded to include both cliff and surf rescue for local residents and visitors alike. SPCTR puts out a beach safety brochure as well as bilingual warning signs about the dangerous currents on our beautiful but no-swimming beach. Box K maintains the SPCTR equipment and Doug is still active in both training and in real-life rescues. To donate to SPCTR, contact Box K or give us a call.
