Collision and auto body repair facilities are considered essential businesses during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but almost all of them have seen declines in business as people stopped driving during quarantine.

Justin Fisher, owner of CARSTAR Yorkville and CARSTAR Poplar in Illinois, told Patch his shops have seen a decline in business amid shelter in place directives.

 

However, things are looking up.

 

"The encouraging thing is that we are seeing an uptick and we are happy the community is coming to a locally owned business for their collision repair," Fisher told Patch.

 

While the rate of mobility among Americans for both work and recreation has decreased 20% to 30% since the coronavirus first hit North America in March, the company told Patch collision repairers have decided to take advantage of this unexpected downtown to enhance their businesses.

 

According to a news release from CARSTAR, online estimates, vehicle pick-up or delivery and increased sanitization throughout the repair process are a few of the new standards put in place across the industry.

 

However, CARSTAR owners throughout the country decided to not only implement these enhancements, but also take their updates one-step further so they can ultimately better serve the community when business ramps up.

 

Fisher and the team at CARSTAR Yorkville, located at 228 W. Veterans Parkway, added LED lights throughout their facility to not only provide better visibility but also save on their energy usage, and according to Fisher, the addition of LED lights are doing just that.

 

"It's more energy efficient which helps us save money," Fisher told Patch.
