What makes what you do special to customers? 

“We get the pleasure of taking a horrible situation and turning it into something easy and carefree,” Owner Matt Lachowitzer said. “There are a lot of misconceptions when working with insurance companies and body repair. We love taking time to educate them on what their choices and options are. It can be very overwhelming, especially if this is their first accident.”

What do you love most about this community?

“We love that we have been given an opportunity to thrive and grow in this community. The only way this has been possible is by providing exceptional service and for our guests continuing to come back to us,” Lachowtizer said. “One of the big charities we support in this community is the Ronald McDonald House. On average we repair about six people’s vehicles staying there at no charge to them.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
