Collision King of Lubbock, Texas, Earns Farmers Insurance ‘Body Shop of the Year’ Award

Body shop has also been named "Best Auto Body Repair Center in Lubbock" for nine consecutive years and "Best Body Repair Center" in KCBD Channel 11's "Best of the West" campaign since 2010.

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes has announced that Farmers Insurance has granted Collision King Auto Body Repair Center in Lubbock, Texas, the Body Shop of the Year award.

This latest award is one of many accolades for Collision King, including being named “Best Auto Body Repair Center in Lubbock” for nine straight years and “Best Body Repair Center” in KCBD Channel 11’s “Best of the West” campaign since 2010.

“We feel a great sense of pride,” said owner Steven Tisdale, “and it’s humbling to be recognized this way. We are in a smaller market compared to areas like Dallas, Houston and Austin. We often fly under the radar getting overlooked by the larger markets in Texas. But we have a great team, we utilize teamwork and empower our people to make good decisions and think on their feet.”

Established in 1998 by Tisdale, Collision King’s management staff brings more than 100 years of combined experience to their work, utilizing the latest technology, including Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes’ primer and topcoat systems to ensure precision work.

“Sherwin-Williams products have been great for our shop,” said Tisdale. “But more important than the products is the ongoing support we get from them. In addition, our local jobber, West Texas Auto Colors, is top-notch and the manager, Antony Palomo, has helped us implement lean process and goes the extra mile any time we need him.”

“At Sherwin-Williams, we truly value our long-term relationship with Collision King and are committed to continue to support them in their pursuit of excellence,” said Glenn Lane, director of sales – Southwest, for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes.

The latest "Who Pays for What?" survey from Collision Advice and CRASH Network indicates that more than three in five shops (61%) say they're researching automaker repair procedures on “all” or “most” of the vehicles they repair, a nine percentage point gain since 2020.

“It’s still not a high enough percentage, because this must be done every time, but at least awareness of this vital step is increasing,” said Mike Anderson of Collision Advice, who conducts the quarterly surveys with CRASH Network. “OEM information is complex, and can change. I recently wrote an estimate on three of the same year and model of vehicles, but the alignment procedures and battery disconnect procedures were different based on trim levels and engine types.”
