CARSTAR Adds New Location in Washington State

Complete Collision CARSTAR marks second location in city of Federal Way.

CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts is expanding in Washington state with the opening of Complete Collision CARSTAR in Federal Way.
 
Complete Collision CARSTAR, located at 34627 16th Ave. S., is the third location for owner Jeff Middleton, who also owns Exhibition Automotive CARSTAR in Kent and Ballard Collision CARSTAR in Seattle. Middleton was recognized by CARSTAR in 2011 as the top franchisee of the year for operational excellence. He was also recognized by BodyShop Business in 2012 as Collision Repair Shop Executive of the Year.

At the new Complete Collision CARSTAR location, Middleton will offer an array of services and products for collision repair, including the latest in repair technology, rental vehicles, national warranties on repairs and turnkey service for customers.
 
The new CARSTAR store will benefit from the CARSTAR Management System, which provides resources to improve key business metrics such as cycle time, participation in CARSTAR’s 19 corporately managed DRP programs and improved purchasing power from 45 corporately managed purchasing programs.

The opening of Complete Collision CARSTAR marks the second CARSTAR location in Federal Way, along with nearby Bob Bjorneby’s CARSTAR Federal Way Collision.
 
“We congratulate Jeff Middleton on his expansion to a third store and his continued commitment to operational excellence,” said David Byers, CEO of CARSTAR. “We are thrilled to expand our presence in Washington with another top-notch collision repair center."
