CARSTAR Expands Network in Cleveland With Tim's Collision

CARSTAR Expands Network in Cleveland With Addition of CARSTAR Tim’s Collision

Network now has seven locations throughout the city.

CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts announced that CARSTAR Tim’s Collision in Twinsburg, Ohio, has joined North America’s largest collision repair network. This is the second CARSTAR location for owners Jeremy and Theresa Orsky.

The Orskys opened their first shop, CARSTAR Coach & Collision, in Cleveland in 2010. Jeremy Orsky has been in the collision repair industry his entire life. His father was a body man and his mother worked for FinishMaster. His father now works for him as a painter and helps oversee the Cleveland shop, while his sister works at the new facility. Orsky is also an I-CAR instructor and says the new location will soon achieve I-CAR Gold status.

“The decision to expand was easy. It was just a good opportunity at an established shop in an area where there is not a lot of competition,” Orsky said. “The previous owner was ready to get out, but he didn’t want to sell to a consolidator. He was looking to sell to an individual who would carry on what he had built. “

CARSTAR Tim’s Collision features three frame machines and three Car-O-Liner Speed Racks. It has a heated downdraft spraybooth and double-heated downdraft prep booth. There is a drive-in estimating bay and full mechanical department with alignment machines, as well as a full detail center. The shop is also air-conditioned and has in-floor radiant heat.

“It’s really an ideal situation for what we’re trying to do,” said Orsky. “As we expand our business into multiple locations, this is going to be the flagship store. I don’t think there is a shop in Northeast Ohio that’s as big as this.”

Added CARSTAR CEO David Byers, “It’s a testament to the great performance and operational leadership of CARSTAR franchisees when they’re able to open an additional location. We’re excited to see Jeremy and Theresa Orsky expand to a second store and continue to deliver the highest-quality collision repair in the Cleveland area.”
