Jim Page, Collision Center director for Jim Norton Collision Centers.
Jim Norton now has two state-of-the-art Collision Centers. Director of Operations Jim Page oversees activities at the new location just south of the Creek Turnpike at 97th and Memorial. David Burgess is manager of the Jim Norton Collision Center that has been serving Tulsa for many years, located east of Garnett on 58th Street. Both stores are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, ASE, ICAR, and Toyota certified technicians, and the great quality and service for which Jim Norton is known.
In addition to providing collision repair services, both locations have automotive accessories departments that sell to the public for all makes and models of vehicles. Products and services available include leather seat covers, seat heaters, wheels, tires, spray-in bed liners, receivers for trailer hitches, lift kits, and lots of truck accessories.
Both collision centers house industry-leading Nova Verta paint booths. With over 30 years of experience, Nova Verta has pioneered solutions to create the highest quality paint booths available, and their Sikkens waterborne paint is environmentally friendly.
Jim Norton Collision Center utilizes only the highest quality equipment to ensure the highest quality repairs. “Our Car-O-Tronic Vision is the most sophisticated computer measuring system in the industry today,” said David. “It utilizes precise touch technology that not only identifies damage to your car that can be seen, but primary and secondary damage you can’t see. This helps our highly trained and skilled technicians develop more efficient repair plans to eliminate comebacks and, more importantly, identify hidden damages that will be paid for by your insurance company.” Both locations also provide paintless dent repair and auto and truck detailing.
Collision Center repair technicians undergo a rigorous training schedule. Each technician must complete at least 40 hours of individual technical training a year, plus E-module learning and recertification.
“Both Collision Centers have rental cars available to customers with an appointment,” said Jim, “and complimentary loaner vehicles are made available to customers not having rental car coverage with their insurance policy.” Both locations provide repair work for all major auto insurance companies and offer deductible payment-assist programs for your convenience. “We’ll have you back on the road quickly with factory quality repairs,” said Jim, “and customer satisfaction has always been our number one goal.”
