CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts announced it is expanding in California with the addition of CARSTAR España’s San Jose. With ten successful shops currently operating in Southern California, this latest addition is the first CARSTAR location in Northern California.
CARSTAR España’s San Jose is a family-operated business, owned by Miguel E. España. The family has run the business for more than two decades.
España made the decision to join CARSTAR based on the recommendation of several current owners. He also liked the fact that he can have the advantages of being part of a large MSO, while still retaining his individual ownership.
“I’m pleased for the opportunity to be part of the CARSTAR family,” said España. “After meeting and learning from some of the CARSTAR store owners from all over the country, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to be part of the big CARSTAR network. With their focus on expanding, high quality repairs, superior customer satisfaction and continuing to grow the relations with the insurance partners, all of this is in line with my business culture. Today we are very excited to be part of something big and that still allows us to be independent, yet with the protection and the advantages of a nationwide company network competing with the large MSOs.”
CARSTAR España’s San Jose is in a modern 12,000-square-foot facility, equipped with up-to-date estimating, measuring, and repair software and tools. The shop utilizes Mitchell and Audatex estimating software, Car-O-Liner racks with a Car-o-Tronic measuring system, Spraybake-heated downdraft paint booth and Pro Spot welding systems.
