Ralph Higinbotham, co-owner of Premier Collision in Broken Arrow, has a team of highly skilled technicians that transform your wrecked vehicle into like-new condition and extend a Lifetime Warranty on all repairs and paint as long as you own the vehicle.
When co-owners Ralph Higinbotham and Monte Whitaker founded Premier Collision Center in 2001, they did so using a strong foundation of quality, service, experience and integrity. Premier remains locally owned and operated by the pair, who have successfully instilled their team of professionals with an outstanding willingness to provide the best possible customer service to everyone who walks through the doors.
The first person you meet at Premier Collision is Fay Higinbotham, Ralph’s outgoing wife. When Fay greets you, you’ll instantly agree that she has never met a stranger. Her positive attitude permeates the business, and she has a way of letting you know that it’s never as bad as you think. The skilled repair and paint teams at Premier Collision are amazing at how they bring damaged vehicles back to original condition. Estimators and technicians have years of experience in successful collision repair.
Another plus of Premier Collision is the Avis Rental Car service located on site for the convenience of patrons needing a car while their vehicles are being repaired. When notified that repairs are completed, simply drive to Premier Collision, drop off your rental, and inspect and receive your repaired vehicle. It couldn’t be much easier. Premier Collision also provides pick-up and delivery services for your convenience – just let them know your plans in advance.
Ralph extends a lifetime warranty on all repairs and paint as long as you own your vehicle. “Most other companies don’t provide a lifetime warranty on paint,” says Ralph, “but we have such confidence in our PPG Waterborne Paint System that we do.” This system reduces harmful emissions by 80 percent, and Premier was the first collision center in the Tulsa area to switch to it. “We have the ability to match any color and it makes no difference whether the original paint was a solvent- or water-based coating,” he adds. “The waterborne paint system is environmentally ‘green’ and provides a beautiful factory finish that is just as durable as the finish on a new vehicle.”
It looks like we’re in for a long, cold, ice- and snow-filled winter. Unfortunately, some of us will be involved in fender benders, or hit a curb, pothole or ice chunk in the road. I hope you’re not a victim, but if you are, give Premier a chance to provide you with a quote to put your car back on track, looking good and running safely and well.
If you slide into a curb this winter, don’t just shrug it off. Ralph recommends that you come in for an inspection to make sure that no invisible damage was done to the suspension system. It doesn’t take much to damage a shock, strut or tie rod end, and doing so can have a significant negative effect on your vehicle. Plus, a vehicle that is out of alignment can gobble up tires that will cost much more than an alignment.
Premier Collision ensures that you’ll be totally satisfied with every detail of the repair work they provide. Come by for a quote when needed, no appointment necessary. Be safe!
