Bailey's CARSTAR Auto Body and Glass

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Bailey's CARSTAR Auto Body and Glass at 624 S. Westwood Blvd. is owned by Jim Bailey, who has been a Poplar Bluff businessman for 29 years.

In 1983, Bailey moved from Chicago, Ill., to Poplar Bluff where he opened Bailey's Auto Body and Glass where Walgreens is now located. He sold his property to the retail chain and moved his business a few blocks south on Westwood Boulevard to where it is located today.

Bailey recently became affiliated with CARSTAR, the largest auto body repair franchises in North America.

CARSTAR offers the only five-year nationwide warranty that is honored at any CARSTAR location and 24/7 accident assistance by calling 1-800-CARSTAR.

"Our motto is to make your repair as stress-free as possible," Bailey said.

Bailey's also is a Hertz Rent a Car agency and provides customer pick up and delivery by request, extended hours by appointment and detailing prior to delivery of every vehicle.

He also is glad to be involved with CARSTAR because the firm raises funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Customers appreciate the quickness and quality of work done at Bailey's CARSTAR. The business has 14,700 square feet with 22 work bays.

"We also offer 24-hour emergency service," Bailey said.

CARSTAR facilities have highly trained technicians who continually receive technical training to ensure they are qualified to work on any vehicle.

In addition to doing auto body work, Bailey's also does automotive glass work and sells glass for commercial and residential uses.

Bailey's handles all types of auto glass, replaces windshields and does rock chip repairs. The firm also will pick up and deliver vehicles, provide mobile same day service, has direct insurance billing and is a wholesale distributor for area body shops.

For commercial and residential glass customers, Bailey's offers Cardinal frameless shower enclosures, commercial window tinting, glass furniture tops, patio door, store front door, thermal panes and decorative mirrors.

Bailey and his wife, Shannon, are the parents of two sons, Lucas, 16, and Spencer, 13.
