More Recycled Rides Vehicle Donations Needed by Friday

The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced that the insurance industry and other industry partners are stepping forward to provide vehicles for NABC’s Recycled Rides program. However, more vehicles are needed, and the donation deadline – Sept. 25 – is quickly approaching.

Recycled Rides is a community awareness project in which NABC members repair and donate refurbished vehicles to families and service organizations in need throughout the United States.

"We’re grateful for the vigorous support of the insurance community and rental car business," said Mike Quinn, co-founder of 911 Collision Centers and 2009 Recycled Rides chairman. "However, the 2009 version of Recycled Rides is in its eleventh hour, and we need more vehicles to meet our goal of 100 giveaways."

Insurers that have provided vehicles include Allstate, American Family, Amica, Esurance, GEICO, Progressive, Republic Insurance Group, State Farm, Travelers and USAA. Other participating industry partners include rental car companies Hertz and Enterprise.

"We’re very appreciative of the strong response we’ve received from insurers; their participation is crucial to the success of Recycled Rides," said Bill Mayer of Insurance Auto Auctions and Recycled Rides vehicle procurement chair. "Many vehicle transformations are already underway, but there remain additional opportunities for insurers and others to donate vehicles."

The Recycled Rides project drives media awareness, which promotes the NABC’s mission of enhancing the image of the collision repair industry. It also promotes unity between repairers, insurers, rental car companies, paint suppliers and material vendors, the association says.

For more information about donating a vehicle to Recycled Rides or participating in the program in any other way, call (888) 667-7433 or e-mail [email protected].
