20 years ago, owner Frank Abate began in the collision repair industry as a licensed auto body man and Insurance Appraiser when he first came in contact with CARSTAR. After working in insurance for many years, Frank decided that he wanted to open his own collision repair centre and was approached by multiple companies- including CARSTAR. After completing his own research on all potential partners, Frank knew that CARSTAR was the best move as he recognized that working with CARSTAR in the insurance industry was always a positive experience. Frank credits CARSTAR’s solid reputation as a trusting and well-managed company for his decision to join the CARSTAR family. Currently, Frank has a team of 9 employees working in his location which he considers to be his extended family.
