Welcome to the South African Auto Repairer and Salvage Association

The South African Auto Repairer and Salvage Association (SAARSA) was established as an NPO in 2005 with the view of driving Transformation in the Motor Body Repair (MBR) industry.

The Association was formed by a few concerned Panel Beating Entrepreneurs in the Western Cape in an attempt to drive transformation and eradicate all the barriers that prevent the Previously Excluded and Disadvantaged small business to freely participate in the mainstream economy by supporting and developing small and medium enterprises in the Motor Body Repairer Industry (i.e. Panel Beating and Spray-painting and Towing Industry)
