Additional Information
  • Compliment 08/02/2013. In late March and while on the way back to Baton Rouge, Louisiana from a Kansas vacation, we had the misfortune of colliding with a full-size, fully-inflated and mounted 15" spare tire that had been left squarely in the middle of the lane of I49-S that we were using to pass another vehicle. I wasn't able to miss the entire tire and suffered traumatic blow-outs to both of my SUV's left tires, along with substantial undercarriage suspension and steering damage. It was getting late, we were tired, we were stuck on the side of the road outside of Shreveport, Louisiana, and we still 200 miles away from home. Our vehicle was towed to a salvage yard in Bossier City and we were given a ride to a car rental agency, where we procured the first of two vehicles we'd need to rent before our SUV was ready to be driven again. The next day, I drove to Bossier City, retrieved some of our belongings from the back of the SUV, and began searching for a repair facility. A search of the BBB website brought up CBS Collision, which has an excellent rating and which happens to be conveniently located with regard to the salvage yard. I contacted XXXXXX who arranged to have my SUV towed there for assessment and repairs. I HAD NO INSURANCE COVERING THIS SPECIFIC ACCIDENT and REPAIRS! TOTAL RECOVERY AND REPAIR COSTS WOULD BE PAIID BY ME! XXXXX took this into consideration and via emails and telephone calls sheparded my damaged vehicle through the repair process, working with me to spare costs at every possible point. While I continued on with my life, 200 miles away, Shannon and her expert team worked tirelessly to ensure that everything was done to exacting levels of expertise. When I informed her that I needed photographs of the damage, she had those taken and emailed to me. After about 2 1/2 weeks of work, my SUV was ready to be picked up. When I saw "our baby" repaired, washed and detailed, and ready to go, I literally had tears in my eyes. Aside from a minor issue with lingering air in the brake lines (easily taken care of), I have experienced nothing in the way of noticeable differences in my vehicle, pre and post wreck. I WANT TO GIVE CBS COLLISION MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION and MY HEARTFELT THANKS FOR THE WORK THEY DID AND THE COMPASSION THEY SHOWED MY DAUGHTER AND ME IN OUR TIME OF GREAT NEED!

BBB Accreditation Reviews

BBB routinely monitors its files on all Accredited Businesses to affirm that they continue to meet all BBB Accreditation Standards

BBB Accreditation Process

Not every business is eligible for BBB Accreditation. Businesses must meet, commit to and maintain the BBB Code of Business Practices (Accreditation Standards) in order to be eligible for and maintain BBB Accreditation. The BBB Code of Business Practices represents sound advertising, selling and customer service practices that enhance customer trust and confidence in business. The Code is built on the BBB Standards for Trust, eight principles that summarize important elements of creating and maintaining trust in business.

In order to be eligible for Accreditation a business must complete an Accreditation application.

Upon receipt of a fully completed BBB Application for Accreditation, BBB staff:

  • Reviews the application
  • Researches the business
  • Verifies the information presented in the application
  • May request additional information
  • May request proof of specific information on the application
After the review and verification process, BBB will then evaluate if the business meets the BBB Code of Business Practices (Accreditation Standards).

Once BBB has finished its evaluation, the application for BBB Accreditation is either approved or denied. If the applicant is found in compliance with the BBB Code of Business Practices it will be presented to the BBB Board of Directors, or a committee of that board, for final approval. If the application is denied, BBB will contact the applicant, indicating the BBB Standard(s) that were not met and any recourse available to the applicant.
