Freak Nor’easter Brings Bounty of Work to Connecticut Body Shops

Bad weather is sometimes a best friend to body shops, as
was the case when a freak snowstorm hit the Northeastern U.S. on Oct. 29.
According to a report from the Hartford Courant, Connecticut collision repair
facilities have received an avalanche of work since the Nor’easter blew in.

One shop owner is so overwhelmed that he posted the need
for additional help from technicians on Craigslist. Another reported
20 damaged vehicles on his lot, and others on a waiting list. Still another
counted 40 damaged vehicles coming in over three days, and an additional 30 on
the way.

"In 28 years, I’ve never seen anything like this.
It’s overwhelming," Tony Cavallaro, owner of Airport Road Auto Body in
Hartford, told the Hartford Courant
