CARA becomes 39th affiliate of SCRS

March 1, 2010

March 1, 2010—Choice Autobody Repair Association (CARA) joined the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) as its 39th affiliate.

CARA is an Ohio-based group of repairers that focuses on vehicle owner rights, with an emphasis on consumer awareness.

“SCRS exhibits a passion similar to ours—they know safe, quality repairs must be given the highest priority,” said Rick Finney, CARA president. “Affiliating with SCRS means our members gain access to a focused national voice advocating for repairers and consumers. We’ll likewise be exposed to a strong affiliate network to help us advance those causes.”

“CARA promotes and spreads consumer rights by forging relationships with collision repair associations, insurance agents, vendor suppliers and other relevant parties,” said Barry Dorn, SCRS chairman. “Their approach has certainly created a kind of extended communications network to help spread their message about consumer rights and to compile important information about those rights that can be distributed back through the network.”

The SCRS is made up of 6,000 collision repair businesses and 58,500 specialized professionals who work with consumers and insurance companies to repair collision-damaged vehicles.
