Pete's CARSTAR of South Windsor - a trustworthy auto body shop

Pete’s Carstar has served individual and corporate customers in Hartford and Tolland County for over 20 years, providing quality collision repair services for personal vehicles including cars, trucks, RVs and boats, as well as commercial and municipal vehicles through our Elite Fleet program.

Owner’s Background
A 1982 graduate of Somers High School, owner Pete Gutska enrolled at Manchester Community College, while working at Mike’s Auto Body. During his time at Mike’s Auto Body, he learned to be an estimator, repair technician and progressed to the role of shop foreman. Always passionate about cars, Pete decided in 1991 to combine his keen sculptor’s eye for line and color to open his own shop.

Current Facility
In the summer of 2012 Pete’s CARSTAR moved to a newer, more modern, larger location on John Fitch Boulevard. The new 20,000-square-foot building has plenty of office space, a Hertz rental area for people to rent cars once they drop theirs off at the shop.
