TILTON — A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the new AutoServ Collision Center on Rte. 140 Wednesday afternoon which was attended by town officials and representatives of the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce.
Tom Cavanaugh, fixed operations director for AutoServ, says that the center will feature the latest state of the art technology in welding, painting and auto frame repairs, including the only aluminum workshop in the area, where specialized tools and equipment will be used in making auto body repairs.
Located across Rte. 140 from Kentucky Fried Chicken, the center will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and also will offer off-hour appointments.
All estimates are free and no appointments are needed unless scheduled for off hours according to Cavanaugh.
He said that other benefits available for customers include the ability to file a claim with their insurance company and have AutoServ write the estimate and follow through with the insurance company until the repair is completed.
A 24-hour towing service is available and on-site rentals are available.
''We work with all insurance companies and are the approved shop for many insurance companies which makes it a lot easier for our customers, who will have the peace of mind of knowing that all our repairs are guaranteed,'' said Cavanaugh.
He said that the company is proud that its entire facility is completely compliant with all environmental standards.
AutoServ Collision Center works with the following insurance companies to offer customers a direct repair option: MetLife, Farmers, AIG, Bristol West, MMG, Zurich, Mount Washington, AAA Insurance, Innovation Auto, 21st Century, Allstate, Ohio Mutual.
