Morrill Collision Repair Inc. has been in business for 17 years. In those 17 years, it has grown from a simple collision repair shop employing its two owners to a respected, multifaceted business employing nine staff members that include four shop techs and a full-time estimator. 

The little body shop has expanded to a top-of-the-line collision repair center with a rental car service and a fully equipped towing and roadside assistance branch.


Morrill Collision is excited to enrich its “family-owned-and-operated” status by welcoming Jerome’s wife, Cynthia, to its full-time office staff. She will be taking on the roles of towing department dispatcher and coordinator, as well as parts manager. Cynthia is completing her degree at Calvary University and will be graduating with an associate’s in business.


At the end of last December, Morrill Collision fulfilled its goal of entering the heavy-duty field of towing and recovery by purchasing a 2018 Freightliner Heavy Wrecker. It is an extremely versatile piece of equipment that enables users to tow anything from a pickup/trailer combination to a semi. The heavy-duty side of towing adds new and weightier responsibility, as it brings a higher level of danger to the tow calls. Considering this, Morrill Collision drivers went through two levels of WreckMaster courses, learning in-depth safety measures and proper scene assessment procedures. The collision shop has also added an enclosed trailer to its fleet, enabling its employees to efficiently transport motorcycles in a way that will protect them from the elements.


Throughout the next year, it is Morrill Collision’s goal to achieve the GOLD level in its I-CAR certifications. Each staff member will be attending classes of different kinds in areas such as frame repair, auto body repair and estimating. An important part of Morrill Collision Repair is that its employees are active learners in their field. It is the people with whom they work and for whom they work that they are thinking of as they continue to seek out the best products and safest procedure for what they do.
