While the potential for a car accident is a year-round threat, storm season is on its way in Oklahoma. That means we should all expect the possibility a hail storm could turn our beautiful car into a pock-marked mess on wheels. Whether your car suffers damage from an accident or hailstorm, Premier Collision can make it look as good as the day your drove it off the sales lot.
Conveniently located in the middle of Broken Arrow at 324 E. Kenosha (71st Street), Premier Collision combines the friendly, professional service one expects from a locally-owned business with a state-of-the-art facility typically associated with larger dealerships.
Ralph Higinbotham and Monte Whitaker established Premier Collision in 2001. Since then, the shop has earned a reputation for quality work at honest and affordable rates. With over a hundred years of combined experience, the staff at Premier Collision specializes in all forms of automobile body repair. From the smallest ding to major collision restoration, Higinbotham and his crew meet every challenge with a smile and will get your car back on the road and looking great in record time.
For minor damage where the paint is not affected, such as light hail damage, Premier offers “paintless dent repair” (P.D.R). Their technician has over 20 years’ experience and is dedicated to restoration without harming the original paint job.
For more significant body damage, Premier offers professional paint services to exactly match the color of the car. As a bonus, the system they use has a low impact on the environment – a worthy consideration in this day and age.
“Our waterborne paint system is environmentally ‘green’ and provides a beautiful factory finish. It is every bit as durable as was the finish on your vehicle when it was new because most new cars have been painted with waterborne paint for several years,” says Higinbotham.
Premier was the first Tulsa-area collision center to utilize the waterborne paint system, which decreases harmful emissions by 80 percent. Additionally, Premier offers a generous warranty on their work. “We extend a lifetime warranty on all repairs and paint as long as you own the vehicle,” says Ralph. “Most collision repair operations only cover paint for three years.”
Premier also provides window-tinting services – a nice option for customers, given the extreme heat of Oklahoma summers. Another added convenience at Premier is the Avis car rental just next door. For those who rely on their wheels to commute, it is handy to be able to drop off a car and leave with a rental, then return the rental once their car is finished. For customers who just need a lift home, Premier offers pick up and drop off service. Such attention to service is one of the many ways Premier Collision sets itself apart from competitors.
If your car is in need of body work or paint, see for yourself why Premier Collision is the best value in the area. Stop by for a free estimate. Their business hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
