Body shops see business boom from snow & cold temperatures.
WALKER, Mich. (WZZM) -- The cold weather, snow and lots of accidents have auto body shops busy.
At Alpine Collision in Walker, business has picked up over the past few days.
Workers credit their pick-up in activity to accidents on Monday and Tuesday. They say several new cars have been brought in for repair.
"People just can't stop at intersections," says Josh Tomaszewski. "They slide into parked cars and slide through intersections.
"As long as everyone is safe -- nothing major, no one hurt -- we love it."
Many business had been hurting with the lack of snow. Now, it has drivers rushing to auto shops to get winter tune-ups, snow tires, and -- unfortunately --- unwanted repairs.
