CSN Darv’s located in Lloydminster, AB – roughly 3-hours east of Edmonton – is the latest collision centre to join the collision repair network.
Formerly known as Darv’s Autobody, CSN Darv’s has been serving the Lloydminster community since 1979. Neil Wilkinson began his career in collision repair in 1983 and after spending more than 25 years on the bench as a repairer, Neil and his wife Wendy purchased the business in 2011 and haven’t looked back since. With decades of experience on the floor and almost 10 years managing his own collision repair business, Wilkinson decided it was the right time to join a banner. “The industry has changed so much over the last few years. We have a great reputation in the community and with the insurers we work with but becoming part of CSN is what we needed to take our business to the next level.” Wilkinson said.
Certified by Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, Ford, Kia, and Nissan, the staff at CSN Darv’s aren’t just well trained and educated they are also self-aware. “We have guys on our staff that have been repairing cars for decades, but I know what our limitations are. If we don’t have the right equipment to fix the car properly, we don’t touch it and that’s something that we take pride in, we know what we can and can’t do.” Wilkinson said.
“We always talk our customers through the repair process we don’t just hand them a piece of paper and their keys, we educate them and that helps us manage expectations and helps them understand the value of what we’re doing.” Wilkinson said.
“CSN Darv’s is another exceptional repair facility that we’re thrilled to have here in Western Canada and I’m looking forward to continuing to grow our network in my new role.” said CSN Western Sales Manager, Kari Barton.
