Reno, NV (April 22, 2020) – Certified Collision Group (CCG) added its 450th affiliate location earlier this month.

“We are extremely thankful for the continued support of our affiliates, strategic vendor partners, and clients during these unprecedented times,” stated CCG’s Chief Operating Officer, Marty Evans. “And we are very proud of our industry-leading affiliates and the stability of the entire group; locations are open, operational, and continue to deliver their best-in-business service.” “Our primary focus over these last two months has been to support our affiliates as they manage through COVID-19 challenges in their towns and communities,” said Evans.

“We are doing all we can to ensure our affiliates have the most up to date and accurate information needed to keep their associates and customers safe during this dangerous pandemic”. Evans continued, “We are also proud of the many affiliates who have stepped up in their local communities and donated back to those on the frontlines battling this pandemic.” A few examples are:

    that includes donations to nurses, teachers, first-responders, grocers, truck drivers, restaurant staff, hospitals
    and many more.

  • McCullom Auto Body in Portland, OR, is taking a Recycled Ride that was postponed due to a local event cancelation and turning it into an opportunity to find a family impacted by the pandemic.
