The Ballweg Family of Dealerships purchased the 35 year old shop in October. It is their seventh body shop in the Madison area.
According to reports by Kim Lamoraeux of wiscnews.com, life-long Sauk Prairie resident and Collision Center general manager Jim Kirch said Gates offered the former Ballweg employees their old jobs back.
Free loaner cars, a pick up and delivery service, mobile or on-site estimates and a deductible financial assistance program plus a nation-wide warranty on all work are the upgrades now offered at Gates Collision of Madison. Kirch also stated that Gates Collision has spent years honing its relationships with major insurance carriers that work like a liaison between customers and their carriers, according to Lamoraeux.
The new hours are Monday through Friday. 7:30am to 5pm.
