Lisa and Mike Black, owners of both CARSTAR Advantage Collision Center and CARSTAR Collision Express, work hard every day to drive facility advancements and ensure customer satisfaction. Mike, having over 15 years of industry experience as a claims manager, understands the importance of strong relationships.

“Having been an independent store owner for a number of years, I began to see a trend of more facilities joining networks, so I started to do my research,” said Mike. “It made the most sense for our team to join the CARSTAR network because of their strong relationships and benefits for independent store owners.”

A 20,000-square-foot facility, CARSTAR Advantage Collision Center is a highly advanced facility with industry-leading equipment. CARSTAR Collision Express is similar with best-in-class equipment and 18,000-plus square feet. Both locations are I-CAR Gold and offer collision repairs on all makes and models.

“Lisa and Mike Black have the tools already in place at both of their facilities to be a trusted premier collision repair provider for the Portsmouth and Wilmington region,” said Michael Macaluso, president, CARSTAR. “Now that they have the boosted support from CARSTAR, the team can continue to thrive and provide their communities with best in class service.”

Lisa and Mike Black look forward to participating in the CARSTAR charitable cause, fighting cystic fibrosis, and aim to join the larger team in its fundraising efforts in the future. Having opened CARSTAR Collision Express even with the most recent hurricane, the team has a lot to be grateful for and is eager to share their gratitude.
