Campbell Martens, one of the owners of the newly opened Maaco located at 1357 Edwin Miller Blvd. in Martinsburg, WV, explained his job as a delivery driver for Amazon helped him realize the need for an affordable body shop in the area. 

He said the trucks he and his co-owners drive often receive dents and scratches, needing repairs from time to time.

The ability to provide commercial work was a factor in determining to open a Maaco franchise.
