Hertz Now Serving CARSTAR Locations

Hertz has started servicing two new CARSTAR locations: Stock Auto Body CARSTAR in Illinois and Schlenker Automotive CARSTAR in Florida. 

CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts is a multi-shop operator network of independently owned collision repair facilities with more than 440 locations.

These openings are part of a strategy to expand in the off-airport, neighborhood car rental market servicing replacement, leisure and business customers, says Hertz.

"Hertz is excited to be partnering with these CARSTAR locations and expanding our network in Illinois and Florida," said John Holt, senior vice president, off airport operations for Hertz. "As CARSTAR facilities, the shops are known for providing consistently, high quality vehicle repairs. Our partnership lets customers get back on the road in the fastest and easiest way possible after dropping their car off for service or repairs."

This new partnership provides customers with a range of rental vehicles — including compact through full-size cars and SUVs — while their car is in the shop, says Hertz.

Additionally, pickup and delivery service and direct billing to insurance companies are also available.
