CK Auto Collision in TN Under New Ownership

This year has been full of surprises, namely three, for Cesar Hernandez and Claudia Solis, new owners of CK Auto Collision Repair, 2111 N. Main St. in Shelbyville, TN.

First, they purchased their new collision business right in the middle of the pandemic. Claudia said they were surprised the parking lot filled with a large range of customer vehicles from the get-go.


Secondly, the store had to close in April, due to the pandemic. They were certainly surprised by COVID-19, which did hinder them slightly from opening fully in the spring.


Since May, business has bounced back, with the parking lot still full of customers ready for collision repair; they currently have four employees at CK Collision.


That third major surprise was the announcement they’re going to have their fourth child in a few months. Claudia said now of course she has to be really careful with her health; she cannot enter the paint room---pristine in appearance, but heavily laden with paint fumes.


The two said they’re really enjoying being a part of the Shelbyville business community. Claudia has lived here since 1994 and Cesar moved here in 2004.


He has more than 11 years of detailing and auto body collision experience, working in Mexico City and in Murfreesboro, TN, for car dealerships. Two years ago, Cesar went out on his own doing mobile spot painting.


“I think it is great that he’s doing the same work like his dad,” Claudia said.


CK Auto Collision and Repair is certainly located in an area---Highway 231 North---which sees its share of wrecks in a given week. Still, the couple, through their humble manner, say they’re proud to be right where they are, serving this community.
