CARSTAR Exhibiting at the 2021 Mopar Vendor Expo

CARSTAR announced it will be exhibiting at the 2021 Mopar Vendor Expo Dec. 6-9, 2021, at 505 Expressway in Disney’s Coronado Spring Resort.

“As automobile dealerships focus on driving their sales and profitability in the very competitive new and used car market, they are looking for other dealership services to build their business,” said Jeantte Frazier, director of franchise development, CARSTAR. “The fixed operations department, and particularly the collision repair services, represents a great opportunity for improved efficiencies and performance. However, most dealerships don’t have the resources to focus on building insurance business, maintaining the latest repair certifications, participate in new training and marketing their services.

“That’s where CARSTAR comes in. We’ve created very dynamic partnerships with dealerships that combine the local dealer’s brand name with CARSTAR’s proprietary operating procedures, insurance relationships and training programs. This allows CARSTAR to help deliver best-in-class KPI performance and the highest-quality repairs, while the dealership can focus on selling vehicles. That high-quality repair and customer service experience also helps the dealership retain customer loyalty for future vehicle purchases.”

Over the past year, a number of dealership-based collision repair centers looked beyond their local resources for more support in their growing businesses. Their goal was to retain their independent ownership and generations of family involvement but complement their current platform with new opportunities for growth.

Interested dealer principals looking for more information can stop by the CARSTAR booth #505 Expressway at the 2021 Mopar Vendor Expo and connect with Rachel Hinson, senior director of OEM strategy and compliance, Driven Brands Collision or Jeanette Frazier, director of franchise development, CARSTAR.
