service-king-logoService King Collision Repair Centers has announced its largest partnership of the year through closing a deal to acquire Chicago-based MSO CARCARE, Inc.

The deal encompasses all 15 of CARCARE’s collision repair centers across the Chicago metro and central Illinois area with operations transitioning to Service King immediately. Terms of the merger were officially agreed upon and signed Friday, Nov. 6, as Service King continues its growth initiative in the market and across the U.S.

“Partnering with Service King is truly an exciting step forward for the CARCARE team,” said Bill Aeschliman, CARCARE owner and CEO. “Service King’s standard of superior service will only enhance our operations and propel opportunities for our very own teammates. CARCARE customers and insurance partners will continue to receive the same exceptional service they have come to expect throughout this period of growth.”

Service King now operates a total of 37 locations across the Chicago and central Illinois market. The organization, which first expanded to Chicago in 2014, now provides automotive repair services at 275 locations in 23 states across the U.S.

“The Chicago community has embraced Service King, and we couldn’t be more excited about continued growth,” said Jerod Guerin, Service King regional vice president. “Partnering with CARCARE and its excellent network of 15 superior collision repair centers and teammates is a monumental step forward in our mission to provide Chicago and its residents the very best service possible.”

The Chicago market has played a key role in Service King’s growth strategy for 2015. This year alone, the organization has partnered with four area collision repair providers including Riverdale Body Shop, Central Collision and Loro Auto Body as it looks to bring the area a streamlined and consistent high-quality collision repair experience.

“CARCARE has built its business by promising the highest quality repairs coupled with outstanding customer service,” Jim Missig, CARCARE owner and chief administrative officer. “Through partnering with Service King, we are able to continue to fulfill that promise, while at the same time providing the opportunity for our very own teammates to grow in the industry. This is truly a perfect fit for our team, and I’m personally excited to see its positive impact across all facets of our business and the customers we serve.”

CARCARE has served the Chicago area since opening its first location under its current name in 2001. According to Service King, the business has since steadily built a reputation for integrity and quality repair work, fueling the opportunity for expansion across the metro and state. CARCARE consistently ranks among the top-10 collision repair centers in the U.S., according to AutoChex, the leading provider of in-depth customer satisfaction ratings for the collision repair industry.
