Toronto, Ontario — On this week’s episode of Industry Insider, Collision Repair chatted with Naeem Hassan, owner of Calgary’s Central Auto Repair, to hear how his facility has stepped up to help its community in crisis.
On June 13, Alberta experienced the costliest hailstorm in Canadian history, resulting in more than 1.2 billion dollars in insured damages. Hail as large as tennis balls wrought havoc on the province, pummeling car bodies, rooves and smashing windshields in the process.
When the damage was done, Hassan knew he had to do something to help his community—so he reached out to locals to see if anyone would be willing to step up with financial donations and help float some of the facility’s windshield repair costs. The response Hassan received has been enormous. The Central Auto Repair team has been able offer windshield repairs at discounted prices, even giving some drivers in serious need a free-of-charge fix.
