After an accident a fully repaired car has lost value because:
- Consumers place less value on a previously damaged car
- Repair shops are often unable to duplicate processes available only to manufacturers
- All damage, even minor, will show up on a car fax or vehicle history report

Let us help you get through the application and hearing process.
We work with local municipal and state governments to:
- Develop and communicate comprehensive sustainability plans
