NABC Donates Recycled Ride to Milwaukee Veteran

The NABC, American Family Insurance and Gerber Collision & Glass recently donated a refurbished vehicle to a deserving Milwaukee-area military veteran.

The National Auto Body Council (NABC), along with American Family Insurance and Gerber Collision & Glass, recently donated a refurbished vehicle to a Milwaukee-area military veteran to provide her independence and the ability to work via the NABC’s Recycled Rides program.

The presentation was held at a Milwaukee Brewers home game. The deserving recipient was selected by University of Wisconsin Veterans Services.

The recipient was Air National Guard Senior Airman Abygail Boyle of Madison, Wis., who received a 2017 Toyota Rav 4 which will help her get to school and her military service job. Boyle serves the U.S. as a fire protection engineer and is also certified as a civilian emergency medical technician. She balances attending classes, working as an EMT and serving in the Air National Guard.

“American Family and Gerber have participated together in the NABC Recycled Rides program for more than 10 years,” said Tim Constien, chief claims officer for American Family Insurance. “We’re proud of this partnership that provides safe, reliable vehicles to deserving recipients, including those serving our country like Abby.”

Additional partners in the presentation included Advanced Remarketing Services and Cars for Charity.

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.”
