We each have children and friends that one time or another need our help,” states Lorenzo modestly. “CARSTAR Oakville services a broad range of vehicles. We have no elitist approach. We service Mom and her Caravan as she makes her run to the hockey rink and gets dinged during a left hand turn. We service the executive and his BMW having collided with a van on the QEW during a snowstorm. No job is too small; no job too large. We exist to serve our customers. We understand the inconvenience of missing one's car due to an accident. This is why we strive to return our customers' cars in as timely a fashion as possible, offering on-site rental vehicles and shuttle service to ease the burden.”
