Providing Pegram, Kingston Springs, Bellevue, and West Nashville, TN With Quality Automotive Repairs Since 1989
The Car Care Center started off small, founded by Paul Smith Sr. Still in the family, the shop is now run by Paul Smith. It really began much earlier, but the shop you know and love opened its doors in 1989. Before The Car Care Center, Paul Sr. opened up a series of small auto repair shops built with integrity as the foundation of his business model. While a skilled mechanic, the business side of the automotive world took Paul a few attempts to master. In 1981 Paul Sr. and his family moved to a small house on Charlotte Pk. in West Nashville, just behind the Chick-fil-A. Behind the house there was a small garage, with dirt floors and no garage door. We took weekly trips to K-Mart to gather old cardboard boxes that we stapled together to create a makeshift garage door. By word of mouth, our neighborhood garage began to grow. By 1986 we moved Paul's Garage to a real shop in West Nashville and hired a small team of mechanics. The business grew steadily over the next few years, and in 1989 the Smith Family was able to purchase the property required to build the garage of our dreams from the ground up. To let customers know a new auto shop was on the way, Paul Sr. posted a "Car Care Shop Coming Soon" sign on the building. Everyone started asking when "The Car Care Shop" was opening, so we decided to change the name. In 2015, Paul Sr. retired and his family took over the shop. Still a family affair, it's not uncommon to find one of my 6 children running around and helping in the garage.
