CARSTAR Fabel West - a trustworthy auto body shop

Scott Fabel opened his first shop in Appleton, WI in 1991 and in 2011 built a second location in Waupaca, WI to further serve the community. After graduation from Northwood University in Midland, MI, with an Automotive Marketing Degree, Scott worked with his father at their truck dealership for many years. Scott saw the need for a truck and body repair shop in the Fox Valley and this is how the idea of Fabel Repair & Collision Center was born and opened its doors in 1991 to start serving the community. Fabel CARSTAR West is a family owned and operated business

We have been working on commercial and fleet vehicles for many years. Now we are expanding to do automobiles by joining the CARSTAR Franchise.

Quality auto body repair centers combined with an exceptional warranty program and excellent customer service give CARSTAR repair centers an unbeatable 97% customer satisfaction rating.
