Collision repair is about people helping people

who find themselves in a difficult situation, often through no fault of their own. It’s not just about putting cars back together — it’s about making people whole again. The collision repair community — including body shops, paint, parts, equipment and insurance companies — has been doing this for a long time.

And sometimes, the collision industry goes above and beyond the call of duty to make things a little bit brighter for those less fortunate. This section honors the shops and suppliers that take that additional step.
