It is great to see a small auto body repair centre run away with the prestigious Repair Centre of the Year for Outsurance award, and that’s exactly what All Star Auto Body Repair Centre have achieved.

Operating a close-knit business in Centurion, Rick and Huretha Carmody have had a policy of achieving success through the quality of their workmanship since the company start-up in 2014, when they invested in the latest equipment and standards of production to satisfy both their motor dealers and insurance repair clients.

“Huretha is over qualified,” says Rick, “as she has her masters  in psychological studies.” Rick is a ‘dyed in the wool’ racing mad biker who has achieved success with his hobby, by winning four national production titles in his career.

The company are proud members of the Collision Repair Association of South Africa (CRA) and carry full structural repair status. They are also Mazda approved and a Kia warranty repair centre. “The Outsurance Award has been hard earned by our loyal and conscientious band of long-term employees and it’s due to their long hours and dedication that we could achieve this accolade. “All Star Auto Body Repair Centre repairs hail damage repair as well as scratch and dent and a full list of being able to cover headlight restoration and the common bumper repairs.

The company refinish of choice has become the improved Roberlo package. “It is well priced in my view and now that we’re using the latest colour matching computerised scanner, our colour matching is top notch. With the development of the Xcrom Spectro machine, the results are great for my staff in that area of touch-ups that we do.”

Huretha went on to say, “We always keep our customers informed of just where their car is in the repair cycle. It is all part of our company’s success along with good old-fashioned hard work. This is what keeps us amongst the very best in this business and this award is our highest achievement to date.”

They faced some stiff competition but Outsurance voted this small body shop to be the outright winner of the Body Shop of the Year. That’s a mighty achievement all round!
