CARSTAR adds new shop to network in Washington

Aug. 1, 2014
Hi-Tech CARSTAR 6th Avenue has joined CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts, bringing the MSO to 20 stores in the greater Seattle area.
Hi-Tech CARSTAR 6th Avenue has joined the CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts family, expanding North America’s largest MSO network in Tacoma, WA.  There are now 20 CARSTAR stores serving the greater Seattle area.

Hi-Tech CARSTAR 6th Avenue is now open at 4408 6th Avenue in Tacoma, WA, and is owned by Tracey and Shaun Copeland.  This is the fifth CARSTAR location for the Copelands.  In addition to the new 6th Avenue store, they also own Hi-Tech CARSTAR in Spanaway, WA, Hi-Tech CARSTAR East Side in Tacoma, WA, Parkland Collision CARSTAR in Tacoma, WA, and Fred’s Autobody CARSTAR in Hoquiam, WA.

“We’re growing as an MSO, trying to spread out, trying to get out a little farther,” said Copeland.  We wanted to pick up some more zip codes, and better cover our area.”

Hi-Tech CARSTAR 6th Avenue is located within a short distance of three of the Copeland’s other four locations.  The addition of another shop in the same area will help increase the efficiency and customer experience for the entire MSO. 

“Four shops are within 10 miles of each other, so we can load level,” said Shaun Copeland.  “If you have some extra techs not busy at one shop, you can juggle some work around, when possible.”

Hi-Tech CARSTAR 6th Avenue is a full-service shop, offering an array of services and products for collision repair, including the latest in repair technology, rental vehicles, national warranties on repairs and turnkey service for customers.  As part of CARSTAR’s commitment to customer service, Hi-Tech CARSTAR 6th Avenue will take care of the entire process of repairing the vehicle for the vehicle owner, from getting the vehicle towed to the facility to coordinating with the insurance company to restoring it to pre-accident condition.
