Safelite Honored with 2011 Consumers Choice Award
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Jan. 24, 2012 – Safelite AutoGlass®, the nation’s largest provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement services, has been recognized with a Columbus 2011 Consumers’ Choice Award® in the category of Auto Glass Repair and Replacement for the ninth consecutive year.
The Consumers’ Choice Award, established in Canada in 1986, identifies and promotes business excellence utilizing a unique survey that asks consumers to choose the best of their city. Respondents are randomly selected from both the local business community and the general public. Based on the criteria of value, professionalism, service and any other issue they may wish to consider, respondents are asked to select the company that most merits the Consumers’ Choice Award for customer satisfaction. The survey was conducted by Survey Sampling International®, a global leader in consumer based studies. This year marks the 14th anniversary of the Consumers’ Choice Award in Columbus.
