Independent owner, Sebastian Torres, discusses what it is like being a part of the North American network, CARSTAR. Meet Sebastian Torres, independent owner of two collision repair facilities and member of the North American network, CARSTAR.

The Torres family achieved a lifelong goal to own their own collision repair locations. Owning and operating two facilities is no easy feat, however Sebastian Torres and his team mastered the concept of performance driving profitability and they have yet to look back.

Across North America, consolidation rates have yet to slow. Knowing that the industry is continuing at this pace, having the support of CARSTAR is incredibly beneficial for owners like Sebastian Torres. CARSTAR allows collision repairers to independently own and operate their facility but with the boosted resources of the CARSTAR brand, guidance and training. If you are looking for a network that can help you improve your performance and capacity so you can take on more DRPs from top insurance carriers, consider joining the CARSTAR family.

Spanesi releases the brand-new PULL UP! Repair System.

Spanesi’s new PULL UP! Repair System is a collision repair product based on specific straightening methods which utilize suction cups, glue and impact weights (or pulling column with Electropuller). These custom shaped suction cups can be used individually or together, thanks to the inclusion of traction bars that can be selected based on the type of damaged parts.

The PULL UP! is designed to provide a variety of pulling forces from light tension to hydraulic ram to address small, medium and large damage areas that are best served by repair versus replace repair methods. The PULL UP! system attaches to the damaged area, adhering directly to the painted surface.

The PULL UP! does not burn-through substrates and alleviates the need to repair burn through damage or apply backside corrosion protection degradation after repairs. Removal of the battery, rerouting of electrical wiring, sensors and ADAS systems are not necessary. It also allows for straightening to be performed from the outside of the panel or lining without any need to disassemble or reassemble internal parts.
