Shout-out for Horton Autobody One of our members recently went down a high kerb, detaching her front bumper. When she visited local Horton Autobody to get a quote, they quickly took a look, drove the car around the back, fixed it with a couple of screws, and 10 minutes later she was good to go. The cost? “All part of customer service.” You cannot beat that for excellent customer service - Kudos to Linda, Joyce, Boo (the boxer) and staff at Horton Autobody!
Be kind! Sheila Foster, OSA Marketing & Communications
