Consolidators: Auto Glass Now Opens Two New Locations
The National Auto Body Council (NABC) says the response from those willing to donate vehicles and related services to its Recycled Rides initiative this year has reached unprecedented levels.
Companies donating vehicles include insurance companies like Allstate, American Family, AMICA, Esurance, GEICO, Progressive, Republic Insurance Group, State Farm, Travelers, USAA and AAA. Industry partners including 1-800-Charity Cars, Hertz and Enterprise have also donated vehicles. NABC the donations are much-needed, as the group is on target to reach its goal of donating 150 cars to needy families and charities.
"We are very appreciative of the strong response we have received from insurers. Their participation is crucial to the success of Recycled Rides," said Nick Notte, Recycled Rides chairman and Sterling Auto Body president. "Many vehicle transformations are already underway, but there remain additional opportunities for insurers and others to donate vehicles."
The growth of the program in 2010 is thanks in part to the positive exposure given last year thanks to the 78 families and charities who received Recycled Rides vehicles, NABC says.
Any industry member wishing to participate in Recycled Rides should contact the NABC office as soon as possible by calling (888) 667,7433 or e-mailing [email protected].
