    They definitely live up to the reputation. I hadn't needed a body shop in a few years so when I needed one last October, I found out my previous lifelong family trusted shop had retired. I was nervous to try a new body shop, but based on the reviews, I  went with McElwain and the decision was excellent. In the interim of taking the car, I had ended up breaking my ankle which required surgery. I had a rental car and no way of getting the car. Even though I live about twenty minutes from the shop, the response was "no problem". They sent someone over with my car who then returned the rental car on my behalf.

    Fast forward to April and more work is needed. I went straight back to Mcelwain as it was a no-brainer. Josh/Al and the rest of the team are top notch and it's obvious they care about keeping their customer's happy. They make doing business with them easy, and the work is absolutely quality and top notch.

    "I hit a deer on my way to work on 3/31. I usually go to another shop but decided to go to you instead...   My vehicle was in your garage by that evening, and was back in mine one week later!   I was provided a rental, you were able to inspect it and it looks GREAT! Thank you so much for a job well done!"

Top Four Fall Driving Hazards

Fall is here.

You may not notice it right away, but your time on the road is affected by the shorter days and changing weather. Stay alert this fall. Here are some things to look out for when you’re on the road:

1. Rain and wet leaves

As the weather cools down, the rain picks up. Combine that with lower temperatures and you’ll find your tires may have less grip than they did in the summer months.

To start, always drive cautiously in wet conditions – that includes driving slower than you would on a dry road. And be on the lookout for wet leaves, which can be as slick as ice.

It’s also important to check your tires to ensure they have enough tread. Insert a penny into your tread with Abraham Lincoln’s head upside down and facing you. If you insert the penny all the way and all of Lincoln’s head is still showing, that means your tread has worn down and it’s time for new tires.

Driving too fast for the conditions or cruising on worn tires can lead to hydroplaning. So it’s important to know what to do if you start to hydroplane: take your foot off the gas, firmly grip the steering wheel and calmly make steering adjustments.

2. Deer collisions

Deer are most active from October to January, especially during the dusk and dawn hours. If you’ve ever seen the aftermath of a deer collision, you know it can do severe damage to your vehicle.

Avoid deer on the roadways by slowing down during peak hours, paying attention to road signs and using your high beams to increase visibility when possible.

3. Earlier sunsets

The days get shorter in the fall, so you’ll find yourself driving in the dark more often. This is another peak time for accidents.

Make sure you’re staying alert during nighttime hours. Be on the lookout for pedestrians and turn your headlights on during dawn or dusk hours. Keep a safe distance from other vehicles.

4. School kids

Since more kids are walking and biking to school, you’ll need to stay alert around schools and neighborhoods. Be aware of bus safety and school drop-off procedures as well. And if you’d like to avoid the risk altogether, consider finding a new route to avoid these high-traffic areas.
