Continuing to build on their sustaining values of “Car Repair by People Who Care,” The Woodlands-based Hodges Collision Centers has claimed the special distinction of winning the Woodlands Online Best Collision & Body Shop the first time that the category was offered and on the 10th Anniversary of the Woodlands Online Decade of Excellence.
“I am so proud of our entire team for this recognition, especially since the voting came from the community,” noted Steve Guinn, president/CEO of Hodges Collision Centers. “Each of our locations has won awards for their customer service and quality work, but what puts us on top almost every time is how our Hodges Collision team goes over and above to support not only our customers, but the communities where we are located. We are grateful to all of the people who voted for us and realize the honor of being named the Best of The Woodlands and all that goes with it.”
He continued, “I have been in this business a long time and have seen the industry go through major changes. I am appreciative that we are in a position to give back—we enjoy supporting those non-profits in our communities that may touch our hearts, need a helping hand or a sponsorship that makes a difference.”
Guinn started his organization with the purchase of one autobody shop and has either acquired or built them from the ground up to create the Hodges Collision Centers organization, the largest independent body shop in the Houston area. It is owned and operated by professionals who combine extensive automotive experience with successful practices of customer care and marketing borrowed from other service industries.
Guinn has been recognized by various organizations for his professionally run organization. The Houston Business Journal named Hodges Collision Centers a finalist for the 2014 Fast 100 awards, which honor Houston's fastest-growing private companies with finalists coming from every corner of the Houston economy.
Hodges earned citywide recognition as Houston Chronicle’s “Ultimate Body Shop” for 2003 and 2004, and they were named Best of the Woodlands 2014, 2015, 2018 and 2019.
Because Hodges Collision Centers are ASE, I-CAR Gold and I-CAR Welding certified, their technicians receive regular training to help ensure proper repairs. The I- CAR Gold Class is the most difficult certification that can be obtained within this industry and the first five Hodges locations are I-Car Gold for 2018 & 2019.
The Hodges Collision—Rayford Road location was recently named the prestigious Liberty Mutual Insurance ‘Shop of the Year’ 2019 for the State of Texas. And the Hodges Collision Lane Ln, The Woodlands location was named as a Geico ‘Shop of the Month’ three out of four months. Huge accomplishments in their industry and each location met rigorous criteria to achieve their honors.
At each of their six locations, Hodges Collision uses state-of-the-art equipment, quality parts and materials, and always meets a series of stringent standards that are audited on a regular basis, ensuring the quality of their service.
A member of The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce, Guinn also sits on the Liberty Mutual and the Safeco Advisory Boards.
As part of their company culture, Hodges Collision Centers supports many community non-profits such as Montgomery County Youth Services, Texas Autism Academy and Inspiration Ranch, as well as other local community events.
No matter which location, Hodges Collision offers its customers a lifetime guarantee on their work and provides a Customer Satisfaction Audit program. Their six locations at Lane Ln, The Woodlands; Rayford Road in Spring; HWY 249/1960 West Tomball location; a facility on FM 1488 in Magnolia, Nichols Sawmill Rd, Magnolia; and the newest location in Deer Park, Texas offer hours of operation from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
