Carstar 360 Abbotsford earns Tier 2 status

Abbotsford collision shop becomes first Carstar collision shop in the province to become Tier 2

The CARSTAR 360 Abbotsford location has become British Columbia’s first Tier 2 CARSTAR collision shop, designating it the organizations’ first “best in class” repair centre in the province.

“It is an honour to receive this designation,” said CARSTAR 360 Abbotsford President Rick Francoeur. “CARSTAR is Canada’s largest and most respected collision organization, and to be named their first Best in Class shop in the province is extremely gratifying. We’ve worked very hard for the past eight years to develop a reputation as one of BC’s top collision shops based on the highest standards of workmanship and customer satisfaction and it’s great to have that dedication to excellence recognized.”

CARSTAR 360 Abbotsford is privately owned by brothers Rick and Daryl Francoeur. The shop opened in 2008, and currently services in excess of 500 vehicles annually.

360 is the only CARSTAR dealership in British Columbia to be certified to a Tier 2 (industry leading level), is an ICBC Valet CAR Shop, and is one of less than five per cent of CARSTAR automotive shops in Canada certified under the Give, Green and Growth (GGG) standards. 360 has been selected a direct repair body shop to 13 different insurance companies in Canada (one of the only shops in the nation to achieve this standard), is dual 5S certified (CASTAR and BASF), and in November 2015 became the Fraser Valley’s only Honda Certified collision repair centre.
