Owned and operated by Wayne Hosaki, the facility is located 4032 Finch Avenue E. in Scarborough, Ont.
â€œWe are very proud that we have been selected for two years in a row,â€ says Hosaki. â€œWe feel itâ€™s our high level of customer service, combined with high-quality workmanship from our technicians.â€

The Consumer Choice Awards uses a defined method used to determine winners in each category. This helps to ensure the awards accurately reflect the choice of consumers.
An independent marketing firm spends four weeks surveying each region, starting with a week of surveys. Surveys are conducted both through email and via phone calls. The only question asked for category is, â€œIn this category, who would you nominate?â€ The marketing firm uses those initial surveys to compile a list of nominations for each category. Then the next round of surveys begins.
In the second and following weeks, surveys are conducted regarding specifics of the nominees. Results are based on four factors: quality of service, value of service, appearance of the business and overall service to customers.
When the surveys were completed and the results tabulated, Birchmount Collision came out on top.
â€œIt was quite an honour to learn that we had won, when you consider some of the shops that are larger and have been around just as many years,â€ says Hosaki. â€œWe just treat all of our customers with respect and courtesy, and we believing in repairing the customerâ€™s car the way we would want our own to be fixed.â€
