CARSTAR Adds Location in Louisville, Ky.

CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts has announced that CARSTAR Hall’s Collision Center has joined North America’s largest collision repair MSO network, expanding its presence in Kentucky.

CARSTAR Hall’s Collision Center is located at 3947 Bardstown Road in Louisville and is owned by Harold Hall. Hall, who has been in business since 1967 and at his current location since 1970, joined CARSTAR for the knowledge, training and expertise the company can offer a shop wanting to grow. The shop is a family affair, with Hall’s son, David, managing the operation.

“My father met another CARSTAR owner who seemed happy with his business,” said David Hall. “At that point, we made contact with CARSTAR and went from there. We needed knowledge, and didn’t want to move forward alone.”

The 35,000-square-foot building is fully equipped with three downdraft paint booths and five frame racks, along with an in-house towing service. The shop is also up todate with photographic and imaging software and computer estimating software. All of their technicians are either I-CAR trained, or in the process of completing their training.

“We congratulate the Halls on joining the CARSTAR family and their commitment to operational excellence,” said David Byers, CEO of CARSTAR. “We are thrilled to expand our collision repair family’s presence in the Louisville region with this top-notch collision repair center.”
