Auto Body Shops in Dallas, Texas Go Green - How Auto Body Repairs Help the Environment

Plano, TX (PressExposure) September 24, 2009 -- We often take the planet earth for granted as we live, breathe, eat and sleep here. There are so many simple practices we can live by to eliminate the impact we have on our environment to preserve the planet. We can conserve energy, not waste water, recycle and cut down on pollution.

Jack Barker, owner of Collision on Wheels, a mobile auto body repair shop explained how auto body repair helps the environment, “Auto body repairs versus replacement reduces the amount of waste going into the landfills. Many auto body shops prefer to replace bumpers, fenders, doors and trim on vehicles so they can charge more for labor and mark-up on parts. This wasteful practice means more trash going to the dump. In addition, the packaging material that the new parts are shipped in are also thrown in the trash.”

Another good point Jack brought up was buying a new car versus repairing the old one. “So many cars end up going to the dump when they are still usable. If you must have a new car, consider selling your old car or donating it for a tax write-off.”

In conclusion, Jack Barker said, “Auto body repairs versus replacement saves consumers time and money while helping to preserve our environment. Make sure your auto body repair shop is eco-friendly, repairing auto body parts when possible.” Read Jack’s blog at for more information about auto body repair and maintenance.
