Business for body shops in the tri-state is booming from the severe winter weather.

"The first day was the worst day because we had a lot of tow-ins come in,” said Don Decker, owner of Mills Body Shops, “Because there were bigger accidents."


Body shops across the tri-state are getting flooded with cars needing to be fixed, after getting into weather related accidents.


"They went off the road -- hit a tree, hit a pole, hit a ditch,” Decker said. “Something like that that caused them to not be drivable."

And at Mills Body Shops, while they are grateful to have more customers across their four locations, they also want to get them back on the road safely.


And while the last of the harsh weather is hopefully over for this winter season, at Mills, they are ready if more snow does hit.


"We prepare as much as we can with the influx of vehicles -- we change out scheduling, a little more overtime obviously,” Decker said. “We're actually looking for more staff so we can get more cars through the process."
