CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts announced it is now offering a new a financing option for their auto repairs through its Car Care One Program. Available at participating locations in the U.S. through Synchrony Financial, the CARSTAR Car Care One Program offers customers a payment alternative.
In a recent survey by Bankrate.com, almost two out of three Americans do not have enough savings to pay for a $500 car repair. Many times, customers are surprised with a bill for their collision repair for uncovered expenses, depending on the type of policy they have, or don’t have the cash to cover their deductible. With the CARSTAR credit card, customers can pay for their repairs on their own terms.
“While drivers are required to have insurance for their vehicles, sometimes all of the costs are not covered, like towing, additional repairs, detailing or a specific type of replacement parts not mandated by their policy,” said Michael Macaluso, president of CARSTAR. “And, some people take a higher deductible to reduce their insurance premiums, but neglect to save for that expense should it come time for a collision repair. At CARSTAR, our motto is, ‘Relax, We’ll Take It from Here,’ so offering a financing option helps our customers through what can be a stressful time.”
CARSTAR says the benefits of its card are:
- No minimum purchase required
- No interest financing promotions on purchases more than $199
- Low monthly payments – $25 or 5 percent of the balance, whichever is greater
- Generous credit lines
- Online account management
- Card accepted for fuel purchases at participating U.S. Chevron, Texaco and Exxon Mobil locations
