The company was built on the values of quality and safety for customers.
A 40-year celebration open house will be held on Thursday, Sept. 19, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The company was founded in 1979 and offers a wide variety of services such as free loaner cars, 24-hour towing, paintless dent repair and detailing.
Ed Hill, the original founder, focused on providing the best service through the restoration of customer vehicles to pristine conditions, hiding the fact that an accident had happened in the first place. This value of quality came from Hill’s own experience of a poor-quality repair on his vehicle.
Forty years later, Mike Cox, current owner, makes sure that goal still endures today. Ed’s Collision continues to provide mutually beneficial service to ensure the safety and happiness of customers in both the Maple Grove and Twin Cities areas.
To achieve this goal, Ed’s is fully committed to the following ideals:
- We will never compromise the quality of the repair based on what the owner, insurance company or third party will or will not pay for.
- We will always repair the vehicle according to the most current original manufacturer’s procedures that are available to us.
- We will keep our technicians as up to date as possible on the repairing of vehicles with training through I-CAR and any other classes available to us.
- We will do pre-repair and post-repair scans of the vehicle’s computer systems to ensure, to the best of our ability, that there are no underlying problems.
Ed’s Collision also offers continuing education for insurance agents who are required to renew their licenses. Involvement in the community is important to Ed’s. That involvement consists of supporting local high school sporting activities and graduation parties, participation in the Maple Grove Days Business Expo and “Keys to Progress” – a vehicle giveaway event for veterans.
