New technologies have made today’s vehicles safer than ever. Still – things happen! Even the best drivers can wind up in an accident. 

While being in an accident is stressful enough, dealing with what comes next can be its own kind of nightmare. That’s why you should know your rights when it comes to choosing the right collision repair center.

  1. You have the right to choose your repair shop.
    Insurance companies may recommend a shop that they have a relationship with – but the choice is yours alone. Once you’ve informed your insurance representative that you’ve selected a repair facility, they should not try to influence you to take it somewhere else.
  2. You have the right to have your vehicle repaired to its pre-accident condition.
    Your insurance company is required to assume all costs necessary to repair your vehicle to its pre-accident condition, no matter which repair facility you choose.

At Loyalty Collision Center, we’ll repair your vehicle the right way.

When you choose Loyalty, we put your needs and priorities first. Our expert technicians will see that it’s done right. And our mission is to make your entire post-accident experience fast, easy and hassle-free.

If you’re ever in an accident, don’t be afraid to insist on going with Loyalty Collision. It’s your right. And we’ll take care of both you and your vehicle – and do it right!

It’s smart to have your car checked out after a small accident or curb bump, even if your fender looks fine. There could be hidden damage to your vehicle!

  • Today’s vehicles are loaded with sensors, cameras and radar that monitor your car and your surroundings. Any kind of impact can easily disrupt these systems.
  • If your blind spot monitor, backup camera and automatic emergency braking tech isn’t working properly, that puts you and your passengers at risk.
  • Even if no warning light comes on, that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. Some trouble codes can only be accessed through a diagnostic scan.
  • Don’t dismiss any sort of weird noises. Your car’s frame, steering and suspension components could be out of whack and should be checked out.
  • Check your seat belts are working properly.

If you’re in an accident – even a small one – Loyalty Collision is here to help. We’ll give your vehicle a thorough inspection, and a free estimate, to make sure everything really is fine.

At Loyalty, the forecast calls for safety!

Can you believe it? Fall is right around the corner! Here at Loyalty, we want to make sure our customers stay safe no matter what Mother Nature brings.

And if you’ve lived around Virginia long enough, you know that means big afternoon thunderstorms, drenching tropical storms, and all the slick roads, falling limbs and flooded roadways that follow.

To keep safe, many of our loyal customers bring their cars into one of our convenient collision centers for a quick rainy season safety check – just  to make sure their cars are functioning safely, smoothly and properly before the storms hit.

Luckily, our convenient locations in Chester, Petersburg, West End and Williamsburg make driving safe easy. Because let’s face it, the last thing you want to do is find yourself driving in a big storm and find out that your vehicle’s safety features aren’t working properly. Failing wipers? Lights out? No thanks! 

Simply make an appointment and we’ll check your tires, brakes, wipers, and lights – then let you know if anything needs repair or replacement.

We’ll check your tires! Your vehicle’s tires help you to maintain traction, and changes in temperature can cause changes in your tire pressure. We’ll check everything and make sure that your tires have been properly balanced and rotated.

We’ll check your brakes!  Stopping in rainy weather takes longer. We’ll  make sure your brakes meet all vehicle manufacturer specifications. Do your brakes squeak? It could mean your brake pads need to be changed. Grinding noises? That needs immediate attention.

We’ll check your wipers! The last thing you want to do is be caught in a downpour with poorly working wiper blades. We’ll check the condition of your windshield wipers for signs of brittleness. Notice any streaking? It’s probably time for new wipers.

We’ll check your lights! In bad weather, your lights not only help you see, they help others see you. We’ll check your headlights, tail lights and directions to keep you safe an divisible. Remember, the law requires drivers to turn on headlights when using their windshield wipers.

Of course, no matter how prepared you are, accidents still happen. Remember that the Loyalty Collision Center is always here for you with free estimates, expert collision repair and convenient locations in Chester, Petersburg, West End, and Williamsburg.

Got a New Driver In the House?

If you’re teaching your teen to drive, safety should be a priority, of course. Here are a few tips to help make it a safe of rewarding experience for everyone:

  • Stress the importance of always wearing seat belts
  • Don’t allow texting or other distracted driving practices
  • Obey the speed limit. Having more time to react is especially important when learning.
  • Keep yourself up to date with traffic laws to be a good teacher & influence

Remember, you can set a good example by following these tips when you’re driving, too!

Or course, things can happen, even if you and your new driver are being safe and responsible. If you or your teen are involved in an accident, trust Loyalty Collision to get your vehicle back in good-as-new condition quickly and with minimal hassle.

Driving is a big responsibility. Good thing your teen has such a great teacher!

Warmer weather means road trips, beach days, and more! Everyone spending more time out and about means more people on the road, and higher risk of accidents. Keep these summer driving tips in mind to stay safe on the road!

  • Keep your car fluids full to avoid overheating
  • Prep for sun exposure, wear sunglasses to avoid visibility issues
  • Drive cautiously and courteously! Just because the weather is heating up, doesn’t mean you have to
  • As always, avoid anything that takes your eyes off the road, hands off the wheel or focus off of driving

Road rage is statistically worse in the summers

When the weather gets hotter, people tend to be more fatigued and aggressive, leading to more road rage incidents. Make sure you keep your cool, and avoid drivers who seem agitated!

What to do in the event of an accident

After making sure all parties are safe and exchanging insurance info, you may need to find a repair shop. At Loyalty, we work directly with your insurance to make sure your vehicle is repaired quickly by our expert technicians, with as little hassle as possible.


We’re here for you when you need us!

Hopefully you’re never in an accident, but just in case, you should know the basics of what to do.

  1. Check yourself and your passengers for injuries. Call 911 if anyone requires medical care.
  2. Call the police to report the accident.
  3. Move your car out of traffic to a safer spot if possible and appropriate. At the least, turn on your hazard lights. 
  4. Take pictures to document the accident scene and vehicle damage.
  5. Exchange information with other driver(s) involved, including name, phone number, insurance company & policy number.
  6. Call your auto insurance company to file an accident report.

What to do right now.

Make sure you have a copy of your auto insurance card – keep it in your wallet and make a copy and put it in the glove box along with your vehicle’s registration. 

What to know about collision repair.

Your insurance company may recommend a certain collision repair center, but the decision is yours. When you choose Loyalty Collision, we work directly with your insurance company to make sure your vehicle is repaired quickly and expertly with as little hassle as possible. 

We’re here for you when you need us!

Spring is when nature wakes up and starts to hum with activity, and the same is true for humans. More people out and about. More people driving, biking, jogging and walking. Which is great – but one downside is that the number of accidents increases, too. 

Here are some of the things that contribute to an increase in accidents during the spring:

  1. More pedestrians & bicyclists 
  2. More celebrations – drunk drivers 
  3. Wet pavement from April showers
  4. Increases in wildlife crossings

It’s always important to be vigilant on the roads, but keep these things in mind while you’re driving this spring. And should an accident occur, know that Loyalty Collision stands ready to help you with the best expertise and service for your vehicle.

Our technicians are highly qualified and committed to making the process stress-free and easy to understand, from the smallest scratch to major accident damage. Should you need us, we’re here for you.

Car accidents happen. But which repair shop you choose can make a huge difference in what comes next – whether it’s one hassle after another, or a surprisingly smooth experience. 

You want a repair shop that will treat you well, provide the best service and do great work. One that’s transparent, certified and puts YOU first every step of the way. 

We might be a little biased, but that’s exactly how we do business at Loyalty Collision. But whichever shop you choose, just make sure that – like Loyalty Collision – they check these boxes:

In this part of Virginia, snowy, icy driving conditions aren’t something we have to deal with very often. But that can make driving in snow, ice and freezing rain even trickier – we’re not used to it! Here are some tips to keep in mind the next time you find yourself driving in a winter wonderland:

  • ❄️ Give yourself more time to get places – then slow down to a speed you’re comfortable with.

  • ❄️ Go easy when speeding up and slowing down. Otherwise you could lose traction if you hit an icy patch.

  • ❄️ Don’t use cruise control. It’s better to be in full control and paying full attention when you’re not sure about the conditions.

  • ❄️ Always wear a seatbelt! Then if there is an accident, you and your passengers are much less likely to be seriously injured.

Remember, if you are in an accident, Loyalty Collision is here for you! We have convenient locations in Chester, Petersburg, West End and Williamsburg.


Is your vehicle ready for the cold winter months ahead? November is the perfect time to prepare. When temperatures plummet, or that first winter storm hits, you’ll be glad you did!

  • Put Together an Emergency Kit
    Include jumper cables, a flashlight, gloves, a warm coat & a car phone charger, just in case!
  • Preserve Your View/Visibility
    Being able to see, even in snow or freezing rain, is critical. Take these steps now:
    • Switch to winter wiper blades
    • Repair any cracks or chips in your windshield
    • Clean & restore your headlights
  • Have Your Battery Tested
    Cold temperatures put extreme stress on car batteries, so make sure yours is up to the challenge.

Don’t wait till bad weather hits. Prepare for a winter of safe driving now. Letting our experts assess and repair any windshield chips and cracks, and restore your headlights if needed, is a great first step. Schedule an appointment today!

You’ve probably heard the term “totaled” about a car that’s been in an accident. But what does that really mean?

Simply put, it means the cost of repairs compared to the car’s pre-accident value would make it not worth repairing. In Virginia, the threshold is set at 75%. 

So if you’re in an accident, after you file a claim, your insurance company will work with an appraiser to determine whether it’s a total loss (totaled).

What happens if my car is totaled?

If it’s determined that your vehicle is totaled, your insurance company will typically pay you an amount equal to its pre-accident value, minus the deductible on your comprehensive or collision coverage.

You should know that Virginia is NOT a no-fault state, meaning that the person at fault for an accident may be responsible for any resulting harm or damages.

On the bright side, if your car is totaled, Loyalty offers a $200 discount at any Loyalty dealership!

And if it’s not totaled?

Choose Loyalty Collision to repair your vehicle. (It’s your decision, not your insurance company’s!) Loyalty collision techs are trained and qualified to give the best recommendations. You can depend on us to get your car looking and driving like the accident never happened, and we make the entire process as stress-free as possible.

Tired of driving around with that dent or ding in your car? Fixing it may cost less than you think! Paintless dent repair (PDR) is faster and less expensive than traditional repair methods, and will have your car looking like new again.

What is it?

PDR uses special tools to pull out the dent – no sandpaper, body filler or paint required! The result? Nearly like new. It will look like the dent was never there.

When is it an option?

Dents can be repaired using PDR over 80% of the time. Not always, though. If there are paint scratches, sharp edges or torn metal, or if its location makes it hard to access with the specialized tool required, it’s likely not a candidate for paintless dent repair.

How can I find out for sure?

Bring your vehicle to your nearby Loyalty Collision location for a free assessment and estimate. We’ll let you know whether PDR is an option, and how much a repair will cost either way.
We make dent repair as painless as possible, and that means paintless when possible!

Extreme heat isn’t just hard on us. It’s hard on our vehicles, too! Here are a few tips for keeping your car healthy in the heat.


Have your tires checked

Overheated tires are blowouts waiting to happen. To prevent this, check your tire pressure regularly and replace worn or damaged tires – something Loyalty Collision specializes in.

Kick-start your battery 

At Loyalty, we’re experts on batteries, no matter the shape or size. We test batteries regularly, which is an especially important thing to do during a heatwave, when they’re under heavy strain.


Change your oil often

During the dog days of summer, it’s more important than ever to keep your engine properly lubricated using the proper oil viscosity. Trust Loyalty Collision to change your oil so your engine operates efficiently and keeps its cool.


TLC for your AC

It’s imperative to remember that A/C care is a yearlong commitment! We’ll make sure your vehicle has enough refrigerant to help prevent leaks and keep you nice and cool all summer long.


Staying chill with a cool engine

When it’s really hot, your vehicle works overtime to make sure the engine stays nice and cool. Bring your car to us and we’ll test, flush and service your coolant system to ensure that it’s working properly.


Tune up before the temps go up

Bring your car to Loyalty Collision during a heatwave – or, even better, before. We’ll inspect it thoroughly so that any issues can be addressed before it becomes a bigger problem. 


At Loyalty Collision, we do collision repair right. But we also provide services like oil changes and tire repair and replacement to keep your car running smoothly – even during a heatwave. 

Is This a Certified Collision Repair Shop?

It’s important that you’re able to trust the capabilities of your mechanic after an accident. At Loyalty Collision, our techs are I-CAR Gold Class & Toyota Collision Certified to make safe, quality repairs and get you and your car back on the road in no time!

Will You Provide a Free Estimate?

You’ll definitely want an estimate of what repairs are needed, parts and labor required and total cost. Be aware that some shops charge a fee for your estimate. Loyalty Collision provides fast, free and easy estimates so you know exactly what to expect from the beginning.

Do You Provide a Rental Car During the Repairs?

Being in an accident is bad enough, let alone being without a car afterward. That’s why it’s important to confirm that the auto repair shop provides rental car service. At Loyalty Collision we have on-site car rental companies and a local shuttle service, too—so you can get to work, or anywhere else you need to go.

Do Repairs and Replacement Parts Come with a Warranty or Guarantee?

Warranties can vary from shop to shop, so it’s important to know what will and won’t be covered. At Loyalty Collision, we provide a Lifetime Warranty Guarantee.

Loyalty Collision does collision repair right. Period. We fix everything from minor dents, dings and scratches to major accident damage. No other body shop will work harder to restore your car to good-as-new condition or be as committed to making the entire repair process as stress-free as possible.



*Limited Lifetime Guarantee is subject to terms and conditions. See dealer for details.

Get your car winter ready.

As winter settles in, it’s a great time to prepare for adverse driving conditions, and to get any ongoing problems with your car fixed. Here are a few issues – some more urgent than others – that we can help with:

Restore Your Headlights

It’s easy to see why dim, cloudy headlights are a safety issue. If left untreated, they can develop small cracks, a condition called crazing. Our headlight restoration service will have your headlights shining bright and looking good!

Repair Your Cracked Windshield

A cracked windshield should be addressed right away. Small cracks can easily spread. And any crack can affect the structural integrity, and therefore the safety, of the vehicle. We’ll help assess, then fix or replace your windshield. 

Refinish Your Wheels

Your wheels take a lot of abuse. We can help restore their luster with a thorough cleaning, rust removal, priming, painting and clear coating application. They’ll not only look great but will be protected against future damage.

Take Advantage of Our Paintless Dent Repair

Paintless dent repair can be a painless way to get your car back in shape. We’ll assess your car’s damage to see if it’s a candidate for utilizing our paintless dent repair technology, which can be a simpler and less expensive way to go.

Rainy Day drives can seem pleasant … and risky. Whether a light sprinkle or torrential downpour, wet roads can make driving conditions less than ideal. Steer clear and drive safe, with these rainy day driving tips from Loyalty Collision Center. 

Tip #1: Wait for Clearer Conditions

If you feel at all uncomfortable driving in rainy conditions, wait until the weather improves. No journey is worth risking your safety! As the skies clear up and the roads dry, you can travel in confidence. 

Tip #2: Check Car Condition

All the parts of your car work together to get you where you need to go. It is even more important, on rainy days, to ensure that all equipment is functioning properly. Check headlights, tail lights, windshield wipers, and tire tread before leaving on a rainy day.

Tip #3: Go Slowly 

Take your time when driving in the rain. Your brakes may not be as effective on wet roads. Reduce your speed to help you avoid a collision on a rainy drive. 

Tip #4: Headlights On

Bright lights can increase your visibility drastically—and other drivers’ ability to see you! Always check to be sure your headlights are on during rainy drives. 

Tip #5: Windshield Wipers On 

Even in a light misty rain, visibility can be tricky. Switch on the wipers just to be safe. 

Tip #6: Vehicle Distancing 

Stay a few car lengths’ behind other vehicles so that a sudden stop on wet roads won’t send you slipping and sliding into the bumper in front of you. 

Tip #7: Brake Gently 

Avoid using cruise control during rain, as it increases the time it takes to come to a complete stop. When you need to slow down or stop, remove your foot from the gas and apply the brake gingerly. 

Tip #8: Keep an Eye on Puddles

Drive around puddles when possible, to keep from skidding atop the surface and hydroplaning. 

Tip #9: Stay Calm if Hydroplaning 

Hydroplaning is very common in rain. Remove your foot from the accelerator and maintain your direction. Sudden turns or quick braking can make things worse!

Tip #10: Use the Defrost Setting 

Rainy drives often lead to foggy windows. Keep your view clear with the defrost setting in your car. Cold air on the windshield should clear up the fog, allowing you to reach your destination safely. 

Stay Safe!

After you’ve been in an accident, you don’t need any more headaches. You’ve been through enough. Let Loyalty Collison take some of the burden. 

Loyalty Collision has developed a 3-step process for removing the pain from your claim. Follow these simple steps to streamline your experience after a car crash.

  1. Choose Loyalty as your official Collision Center. Remember, you have the right to select your own mechanic. You’re entitled to this choice, so don’t let an insurance representative persuade you to choose another company just to save them a few bucks.

    Call the nearest Loyalty Collision Center for an estimate. We’re pre-authorized by all major insurance carriers, meaning that you don’t have to go through them for your estimate.

  2. Consult with your Loyalty Collision Center to determine a repair plan that suits your vehicle and situation. Our experts will provide you with clear explanations and documentation for the damage and respective repairs. This will enable you to make sure you receive what you are entitled to, from your insurance company.

    We’ll provide a detailed estimate including detailed description of all repairs, breakdown of cost, and documentation for all the damage.

  3. Confirm that your insurance provider is paying what you deserve and what you need. They are required to pay the cost to restore your vehicle to pre-collision condition. Review your insurance policy to determine what is covered, what you may owe, and whether a rental car is included.

    There is typically some back and forth discussion with the insurer during the repair phase. Loyalty will liaise with the insurance company, keeping you abreast of the latest, most major developments and takeaways. 

Remember: Choose, Consult, and Confirm. Loyalty will take care of the rest. Contact Loyalty Collision Centers in Chester, Petersburg, West End, and Williamsburg for all your auto collision needs. 

When bugs hit your vehicle’s front bumper, grill and the backs of the mirrors — the most common landing areas — make sure to clean the bugs off as soon as possible. Acidic bug splatter can lead to paint damage. On top of that, bacteria grows on the dead bugs, and this, too, eats away at your car.

Amplifying the bug issues is spring and summer heat, which causes a baked-on effect. Dark vehicles are the most susceptible because they generate more surface heat, leading to blistering and imperfections that can appear as white spots.

Already Have Pesky Paint Damage?

Whether you need a small touch-up or a complete coating, our expert and detailed automotive paint technicians will ensure your vehicle looks good as new. Our high-tech, computerized paint mixing system will match your exact factory color. We’ll finish with a clear coat and polish so your vehicle has the same gleam it did when you first drove it off the lot.

Loyalty Collision, here when you need us.

Winter weather — along with pollution and car wash chemicals — can leave headlights yellowed and clouded. It’s way more than a cosmetic issue but also a safety concern!

Clean, clear headlights are just as important as a clean windshield. You will be able to see the road better, and importantly, other drivers will be able to see you too.

Loyalty Collision can help by restoring your headlights for only $99. They will look and perform better. You won’t believe the difference clean headlights make.

When You Hit the Road, You May Hit a Roadblock

Breakdowns, accidents, weather, traffic and other occurrences impact travel. While you can’t be 100% prepared, we have suggested items to keep in your car that can help. You may not need all of these items. Assess your situation and personalize your preparedness package.

  1. Sturdy ice scraper and snow brush
    Cold weather can arrive early! Have an ice scraper and snow brush in tow to clear your vehicle of snow and ice.
  2. Shovel
    Buy a small or collapsible shovel to keep in your trunk. It will be useful if your car is stuck in snow or if you have to clear a path to drive.
  3. Gloves and other winter clothing
    Need to scrape or shovel? You’ll want to bundle up!
  4. Blanket
    Stranded or in an accident? It can get cold fast if your car won’t turn on. Cover up!
  5. Emergency flares or reflectors
    Snow storms reduce visibility. Reflectors help cars and emergency vehicles see you.
  6. Rock salt, sand, or kitty litter
    Spread these coarse materials near your tires and path to get out of a slippery situation.
  7. First aid kit
    Essential year-round, a first aid kit is really important during winter because emergency response time may slow if it’s snowing.
  8. Extra windshield washer fluid
    For visibility, ensure your windshield washer fluid has antifreeze components to prevent it from freezing.
  9. Flashlight
    A flashlight can facilitate vehicle examination, especially when dark, which happens earlier in the winter. It also makes you more visible.
  10. Rope or chain
    A tow chain is a great tool to get your car out of snow.
  11. Jumper cables
    Cold weather can affect a car’s battery. You can’t start your car if the battery’s dead, so keep jumper cables at the ready.
  12. Small tool kit
    You can fix minor vehicle problems with basic tools and simple instruction, learned ahead of time or via mobile device.
  13. Sunglasses
    The sun’s reflection on snow is bright. Wear sunglasses while driving to reduce glare.
  14. Mobile device charger
    Charge your mobile device before driving and keep a charger in your vehicle, so you can call for assistance if you need to.
  15. Water and non-perishable snacks
    When stranded, assistance could be delayed. Store water and non-perishable snacks in your vehicle. Have kids? Consider having extra on hand.

Be careful out there! At Loyalty Collision, we’re here when you need us.

After an accident, getting life back to normal means getting back on the road as quickly as possible. Make sure you receive what you’re entitled to from your insurance company. Know your rights. You are in the driver’s seat.

You have the right to:

  • ✅ Choose a repair shop to fix your vehicleOnce you’ve informed your insurance representative that you’ve selected a repair facility, they should not try to influence you to take it somewhere else.
  • ✅ Have your vehicle repaired to its pre-accident conditionYour insurance company is required to assume all costs necessary to repair your vehicle to pre-damage state.
  • ✅ Consult with a collision repair professional to determine an appropriate repair plan for your vehicle.Collision repair professionals have the knowledge and technical expertise to know which parts, materials and repair procedures are necessary for the proper and safe repair of your vehicle.

When an accident happens, Loyalty Collision is here for you.

Safety Tips from Loyalty Collision

When the temperature dips below freezing, black ice — a thin layer of ice that forms on surfaces in cold weather — can form from melting snow, lawn runoff or other liquids, and is often present under bridges and in other shady spots.

Black ice isn’t actually black; it’s clear, but takes on a dark coloring from the pavement below it. Because black ice is so thin, it is often invisible to the human eye. This invisibility is what makes black ice such a dangerous driving surface.

Here are Winter Driving Tips to help keep you and your vehicle safe:

  • Be cautious in areas where black ice commonly forms – bridges, overpasses, shaded areas and roads infrequently traveled.
  • Turn, brake and drive slowly.
  • Keep a safe distance between you and other vehicles.
  • Avoid stopping if possible, as it can be difficult to start moving again.
  • Don’t pump the brakes if you have antilock brakes.

Bundle up, stay alert and be prepared! Loyalty Collision is here for you if you need us.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration “National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey,” over 97% of all motor vehicle crashes are caused by driver error. Collisions happen. But many can be avoided.

Consider the following Collision Prevention Tips and apply them to your driving to help steer clear of a fender bender or worse:

Keep your eyes on the road

  • 89% percent of rear-end crashes occur because the driver was distracted.
  • Deter distracted driving by ignoring your phone
  • Set your music before placing your vehicle in drive.
  • Also, skip the tailgating.

Be on high alert in a parking lot

  • When reversing, don’t rely solely on your rearview mirror or back-up camera.
  • Turn around and check your blind spots to ensure the coast is clear.
  • Consider parking farther away from high-traffic areas.

Fend off hydroplane in the rain

  • When a vehicle hydroplanes, stop accelerating and don’t stomp your foot on the brakes.
  • Instead, apply steady pressure and allow the car to arrive at a lower speed.
  • To avoid hydroplaning, make sure you have good tire tread and drive slowly through puddles.

Prepare for wildlife to enter the highway too

  • In the United States, an estimated 1.23 million deer-related accidents occur per year!
  • Take animal crossing signs seriously. Use your high beams and keep the speed limit.
  • If you drive through forest areas often, consider getting a deer whistle. The noise wards off animals and attaches to a vehicle’s bumper.

Side step side-impact collisions

  • Help stave off side impacts by paying attention to stop signs, red lights and who has the right away.
  • Don’t try to make the light before it turns red, rather drive the speed limit and slow down on yellow.
  • Invest in a vehicle with side airbags to protect your precious cargo.

Get ahead of front-impact collisions

  • Front-impact collisions comprise 54% of all the auto accidents.
  • Adjust your driving to the weather; if it is raining or snowing, slow down and be more cautious.
  • Focus your eyes on the road and just say no to texting while driving.

Good morning


In a world where there is so much negativity no one wants to point out the good.  Well this is the opposite of that.


I came in the week of July 6th to have my 2007 Wrangler Jeep looked at because of an accident.  I was assigned Darcy (sorry I don’t have her last name at the moment). Darcy came out and greeted me with a smile and we talked about what happened with my Tammy (yes I named my Jeep).  After looking it over she assured me that you all will do the best to get her back on the road.


See I have a vacation planned for Aug. 13th through the 17th in the mountains and Tammy has to go as part of it includes some off roading.


I dropped of my jeep on Tuesday July 21st, Darcy was at the front counter again greeted me with a smile.  She had everything ready for me including a rental car that was needed.  She made the phone calls to the insurance company to secure the proper authorization.  I did nothing but signed some papers and off I went.


Yesterday I received a text from Darcy stating that my Jeep was being worked on and that she will let me know more later on this week.



Now here is what I really wanted to say:


Darcy has been amazing through this whole process.  She has been nothing but professional but yet caring.  She has a positive attitude even though she had her own accident to deal with.


Darcy is an asset to the company.  She is one of the reasons I would recommend you all to anybody that would need such service.


I would hope you give her the kudos she deserves. I know I am only one customer but it takes on person to start the ball rolling.


With service like Darcy has given me I will be back if I ever need this type of work again.


Thank you for your time.
