CARSTAR Wicklund's Collision Center in MO Becomes First Independent Shop in Region to Open Aluminum Repair Center

As the Ford F-150 all aluminum bodied pickup roll into dealerships throughout Kansas and Missouri, CARSTAR Wicklund’s is the only independent body shop in the region with a qualified aluminum repair facility.

CARSTAR Wicklund opened the new facility with a ribbon cutting event on Wednesday, March 11, 2015, for customers, insurance agents and business community leaders.

Aluminum vehicles require different repair methods and cannot be repaired at a non-recognized facility.

CARSTAR Wicklund’s has been recognized by CARSTAR for completing the training and preparation to handle structural and non-structural repairs on aluminum vehicles, including the new Ford F-150 pickup. This includes the training and certification of technicians on aluminum repair processes for structural and non-structural jobs, construction of dedicated shop area for aluminum repairs and designation of separate tools and equipment for aluminum repair.  In addition,

CARSTAR has its own internal certification process that is part of its proprietary EDGE Performance Tier 5.

CARSTAR Wicklund’s Collision Center grand opening and ribbon cutting, featured Liberty, MO, Mayor Lyndell Brenton, Gerald Wicklund, the second-generation owner of the store, and members of the Liberty Chamber of Commerce and Northland Regional Chamber of Commerce.   

It was held at CARSTAR Wicklund’s Collision Center, 941 Sutton Pl, Liberty, MO 64068-2295.
