CARSTAR Yelm Opens in Yelm, Washington

September 07, 2018 // // CHARLOTTE - CARSTAR, North America’s largest multi-store network of independently owned collision repair facilities, announced the opening of CARSTAR Yelm in Yelm, Washington.

Matt Earsley, owner of CARSTAR Yelm, started his career at a repair center in Olympia as a facility cleaner/helper. Seeing the career potential in the collision repair industry and always eager to learn, Matt was motivated from the outset. He eventually worked his way up gaining more responsibility, taking estimating classes outside of work, becoming a technician and then an owner of his own collision repair facility.

“We knew there was more to learn with this industry, we just wanted support in helping us adopt new processes and grow our operations - so we joined CARSTAR about seven years ago with our first location, CARSTAR Premier Collision in Tacoma,” says Matt Earsley. “My wife and I feel incredibly fortunate that we have been able to expand our operations now with this second facility, growing the reach of our services to the Yelm region. Having this store in our hometown of Yelm where we our raising our family is an added bonus.”

The Earsley’s purchased the 5,500 square foot facility from a longstanding local body shop owner that has been in the community for over 35 years. Having undergone a complete renovation, this new facility is already on track for its I-CAR Gold certification. CARSTAR Yelm is committed to continuing the premier customer service this store has been known for after all of these years.

“Seeing longtime franchise partners expanding demonstrates the value CARSTAR resources bring to these local businesses,” says Michael Macaluso, President, CARSTAR. “Matt and his wife Sadie have become a dynamic duo in the collision repair business, bringing a level of comfort and premier service to the Tacoma area. We are glad to see them expanding and know the people of Yelm will appreciate their commitment to quality service and repair standards.”

Both CARSTAR Yelm and CARSTAR Premier Collision offer free collision repair estimates, state-of-the-art collision repairs on all makes and models, claims support, towing assistance, vehicle pick-up and delivery and a nationwide warranty for most repairs.

Please join us in congratulating the Earsley’s, CARSTAR’s newest multi-store owners on their new facility!
