NABC Gifts Recycled Ride to Deserving Raleigh-Area Recipient

The NABC, along with GEICO, Enterprise and CARSTAR Autobody of Cleveland, recently donated a refurbished vehicle to a Raleigh, N.C., resident.

The National Auto Body Council (NABC), along with GEICO, Enterprise and CARSTAR Autobody of Cleveland, recently donated a refurbished vehicle to a Raleigh, N.C., resident via the NABC’s Recycled Rides program.

The presentation was held at CARSTAR Autobody of Cleveland, owned by Jason Zander, Kevin Zander and Billy Clifton. GEICO donated a 2018 Ford Focus, which was refurbished by the CARSTAR team. Enterprise provided additional support for the family.

The recipient, Joshua Manning, was nominated by Tom Bets of Christian Fellowship Home. Christian Fellowship Home is dedicated to transforming and guiding the community. 

The presentation of the Ford Focus will improve the Manning family’s quality of life and will allow Manning and his wife to get their three children to school on time and help ease the challenges both parents face commuting to their jobs. 

“I appreciate everyone involved with this event,” said Manning. “I am so thankful to receive the support. My wife and daughters will be thrilled with the spaciousness of the vehicle.”

Additional partners in the presentation included 1-800 Charity Cars and NAPA Auto Part.

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.”
