Team | The Car Care Center

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.

Bellevue Family | The Car Care Center

Our team is small but mighty. It's me, technicians Dan, Matthew, and Chris, and 1 service advisor Matt. We have 5 bays, 5 lifts, and the latest tools and technology on hand. Keeping with Paul Smith Sr.'s goal of integrity in automotive repairs, we are dedicated to changing the way our customers feel about taking their car to the shop. We never suggest repairs you don't need, and we always take the time to listen to your concerns - and explain your repairs in a way that makes sense. We treat you like a dear friend and have fun with you along the way. We have fun with one another too and keep things light by cutting up. Not to worry, as our comradery never distracts from our attention to detail. We just love what we do and enjoy working together as a team! The Car Care Center is a proud member of our community who sponsors teams in almost every high school and middle schools in football, baseball, softball, and volleyball. We have also worked with The Ark to provide a vehicle to a local family who required sound transportation. Walk-ins are always welcome, or you can call ahead to schedule your repair!
