Bumper to Bumper Radio Shop I17 Collision is featured in the August issue of FenderBender Magazine in the article "Thriving as an Independent". Kevin Rowe, who didn't start in the auto industry, has owned the auto body shop for the past fifteen years. Rather than being just a "car guy, Rowe professes that his strengths are his people skills and attributes much of their success to their customer focused approach. The article goes on to say:
"At I-17, a value-added service can mean mobile estimating, providing one of the two loaner cars the shop has, coordinating rentals with insurance companies, vehicle pickup and delivery, and anything in between. Thanks to those services, Rowe has had customers who have never set foot in his shop, which he sees as a major strength for his business."
Thank you Bumper to Bumper Radio Preferred Auto Care Network Members!
The participating Bumper to Bumper Radio preferred Shop members teamed up again in a record breaking effort by raising over $10,300 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital this year. Last week, the team was invited by PCH to a special thank you breakfast and tour of the hospital.
We'd like to invite all our listeners to join us in this effort by signing up to become a Phoenix Children’s Hospital Miracle Maker.
