GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Auto body shops across the Piedmont have seen  a huge boom in business since last week due to snow and ice-related accidents.

Greensboro Body Company says cars have been piling in with fender benders to more serious damages since the first snow storm last Monday.

Across town at Gate City Auto Body and Services, business has doubled within days.

The company says workers have been pulling extra hours to get cars back to their owners quickly.

Both shops say they expect even more cars to come in by the end of the week with another round of snow expected Wednesday night.
