Once again distracted driving is a hot topic in BC, with hints that new increased penalties are on the way. It is probably good to remember that the driving world is not divided between people who text and talk all the time while driving and those who never do. Rather than expect that new penalties […]
What it Takes to Do the Right Repair Yesterday evening I walked thought the shop and took in a visual that struck home how much things have changed over the last few years. There were three vehicles in the main repair area; a Chev truck, a Jaguar sedan and Mazda 3, all late model vehicles. […]
Three weeks ago I was at the CCIF collision repair industry forum in Toronto. Between manufacturers, progressive repairs and insurance companies the conversation was completely dominated by technology and how it will be addressed. The good news is that it will be addressed and no one with a commitment to the future is sticking their […]

This money goes toward the purchase of […]
Operation Red Nose has been in Canada since 2001 and was brought to BC by the Delta Gymnastics Society in 2002 as a community service and fundraiser. Volunteer drivers work in teams to get you and your car safely home from holiday events. You can call from a restaurant, bar, or friend’s home and a […]
It doesn’t snow much in Vancouver, so why would you need snow tires? The first thing to change in your thinking is the description of the tire. Ten years ago tire manufacturers made snow tires, with heavy tread to grip in snow. Now they make winter tires, which still work well in snow, but work […]
