CARSTAR Continues Expansion of Dealer Collision Centers
Dec. 10, 2019—CARSTAR is continuing to build upon its network of collision repair facilities based in auto dealerships throughout the U.S. and Canada, the company noted in a press release.
Currently, nearly two of every five franchised dealerships operate collision repair centers, the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) reports.
At the 2020 NADA show, held Feb. 14-17, 2020, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, CARSTAR will have an opportunity to showcase its powerful resources from auto dealers from around the world. CARSTAR will exhibit in the North Hall, Booth No. 6467N.
Over the past year, a number of dealership-based collision repair centers looked beyond their local resources for more support in their growing businesses.
“We needed to be able to compete on a scale with the consolidators while still maintaining our presence in our community,” explained Jon Davidson, who operates three CARSTAR Davidson locations at his family’s auto dealerships in upstate New York. “With multiple locations, the metrics became complicated, and we needed more transparency and analytics to understand and improve our performance. We also needed to take our insurance relationships to (a) new level and solid metrics are essential to that.”
