South Point Collision Grows Four-Fold
Five and a half years ago, Doug Nash and Justin Eickenroth jumped in on an auto collision business venture, purchasing South Point Collision, Inc. This year, they hit a sales mark of four times what it was when they purchased the business – truly an accomplishment worth sharing!

For Justin and Doug, it’s all about the customer experience. They know that most people are not too excited to have to visit a collision repair shop, so they make it a priority to have guests feel welcomed, reassured, and taken care of. “Going beyond the actual repair and letting the customer know it’s all going to be okay”, said Doug, “that’s what it’s about for us”.
South Point Collision, Inc., is excited to continue to grow its service to the Charlevoix community. To learn more about what they do, from repairs to painting to claim management, visit www.southpointcollision.com.
