Not only does gardening provide a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy nature, it’s also beneficial for your mental and physical health. Studies have shown that gardening can reduce stress and improve your mood. It’s also a good way to burn calories and lower your blood pressure for those who may find a traditional workout too demanding or intimidating. In addition, growing your own vegetables can lead to healthier eating. And if you’re gardening with kids, there are many added benefits including enhancing fine motor development and teaching science concepts and responsibility.
With all these benefits, you don’t need a green thumb to be a successful gardener. Whether your passion is flowers, produce, or both, it’s important to make health and safety a priority. To learn more, check out these gardening health and safety tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
West Bend has received a B+ and placed 12th on Crash Network’s 2020 Insurer Report Card!
Crash Network asked more than 1,000 collision repair shops around the country to grade the auto insurance companies they regularly interact with based on one question: “How well does this company’s claims handling policies, attitude, and payment practices ensure quality repairs and customer service for motorists?”
Seventy-nine insurers were included in the national ranking after receiving a grade from at least 35 shops. This report is a useful tool consumers can use when choosing an auto insurer, as it highlights exemplary claims service, not just price and brand recognition.
We’re proud to be included on this list as it shows the repair shops we work with recognize how we take care of our insureds and other claimants after an accident.
We congratulate and thank our associates who interact with our body shops!
Crash Network is an independent source of news, views, and information vital to the collision industry. Since 1994, they’ve been providing subscribers a weekly email digest of key news and insight, as well as access to a searchable index of exclusive research and more than 4,000 articles.
