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.

Four Las Vegas Families Receive NABC Recycled Rides

Four Las Vegas families facing difficult times were selected to receive keys to newly refurbished vehicles at the National Auto Body Council’s annual Recycled Rides giveaway at the SEMA Show.

Participants in this year’s multi-car gifting at SEMA include Enterprise Rent-A-Car, State Farm Insurance, Allstate Insurance Company, Esurance and Hertz, which donated vehicles refurbished by Gerber Collision, Caliber Collision, Sterling Auto Body Centers and Collision Authority.

The families were selected by Family Promise of Las Vegas which helps homeless and low-income families transition from homelessness to stability and independence.

In addition, Family Promise received a 15-passenger van donated by Enterprise Rent-a-Car and repaired by Gerber Collision in a surprise presentation.

“Family Promise of Las Vegas does a wonderful job of helping so many families regain stability. We recognize that owning a car they can count on could be the key to regaining both their financial well-being and their self-respect,” said Chuck Sulkala, Executive Director of the National Auto Body Council. “Recycled Rides is a wonderful program that enables so many of us in the collision repair industry to partner with our colleagues and make a positive impact in peoples’ lives.”
