It’s that time of year again! Shields of Hope – Heroes Holiday is back!

Shields of Hope – Heroes Holiday is a local organization that supports several families that are struggling from cancer that could use some Holiday Cheer! Selected families will receive needed gifts delivered by the members of Shields of Hope. To help one of these families, please stop by any Auto Body Xperts locations and pick a tree ornament off of the giving tree to help support one of these families this Christmas. Everyone one who returns a tag with an item to any Auto Body Xperts location will be entered to win a Family Fun Package that includes a Celebration Cinema gift card, Craig’s Cruiser gift card, and a local restaurant gift card!

For more information, including the stories of the families being helped, please visit: www.shieldsofhopewestmi.com/heroes-holiday/

It’s that time of year, winter is right around the corner. Here are 5 Xpert tips to help prepare your vehicle for winter.

First, always have a winter supply kit in your vehicle. In this kit, always have a flashlight, first-aid kit, a few blankets, change of warm clothes for the driver, few extra pairs of gloves, portable charger for your phone, bag of sand (for traction), winter boots, extra ice scraper, some high-energy snacks (like nuts or jerky), and a bottle of water. The winter supply kit is important in case of a slide off in winter to make sure you are well prepared to get yourself out or if you can’t due to extreme weather, to be able to call and wait for help.

Second, never have less than half a tank of gas in your vehicle at all times. In case of a slide off or traffic jam, you want to make sure you will have enough gas to get you through the situation.

Third, check your tire pressure and tread depth. With the snow and ice, it is important to make sure your vehicle has good traction on the roads. To check the tread on your tires, do the “lincoln test”. Insert a penny into your tire’s tread with the top of Lincoln’s head pointing inward toward the tire. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, you need to replace the tire before winter weather begins.

Fourth, check your vehicle’s fluid levels and make sure they are all full, especially engine coolant and antifreeze. The antifreeze will insure that your vehicle is running smoothly even during the cold winter times.

Finally, make sure your brake lights is working properly. In the winter weather, it takes longer for a vehicle to slow down so it is important that your brake lights are working properly to insure that the vehicles behind you have an ample amount of time to stop.

 

If unfortunately you are in an accident this winter, be sure to see Auto Body Xperts!

On October 18, 2017 we had our grand opening celebration for our new Zeeland location! During our Grand Opening Celebration we had free food trucks, cake, bounce house, free pumpkins for kids, and tours of the new building! We had a huge turn out for the event! Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with us!

The Zeeland location is Auto Body Xpert’s 4th location and officially opened for business on September 5, 2017.

This fall, Auto Body Xperts partnered up with Iris Joy Photography to have a book drive to resupply a school library in Houston, TX with books after they lost all of their books during Hurricane Harvey. Overall, there were over 15 boxes of books donated! The boxes left for Houston, TX on October 9, 2017 and arrived at the school soon after!

 

Huge thank you to everyone involved who made this a very successful book drive!
