CARSS technicians are skilled at servicing foreign and domestic cars and trucks, and they use only the highest quality parts available. Technicians are ASE-certified and stay up-to-date with the latest techniques through a special industry-wide training program as part of our affiliation with the Bumper to Bumper network. Our talented staff can handle a wide range of services

Our team

CHRIS B.

As CARSS owner, Chris Branham is the “C” in CARSS. He launched CARSS in 2005 with the vision of providing exceptional auto repair at a fair price while explaining repairs in clear, simple terms. Chris treats his customers like family. In his free time, Chris likes taking care of aquariums and watching old movies. Notable quote: “At CARSS, we’re driven to keep you driving. That’s the CARSS motto. It reflects the outstanding service we always provide to each customer.”

STEVE L.

Steve is one of two service team leaders at CARSS. He manages a team of technicians specializing in repairs and maintenance tasks for the many fleet customers served by CARSS. Steve is known for achieving fast turnaround times and making the near-impossible happen when customers are in a jam. Notable quote: “Our fleet customers rely on us to help them keep their vehicles on the road, and it’s a good feeling to be their partners in doing that.” 

DAN C.

Dan is one of two service team leaders at CARSS. He comes to CARSS with 10 years of experience having worked in the automotive industry. He has previously held positions as a trainer and an automotive service writer. If your car is having a problem, Dan will help you get to the root of the problem and have your car repaired in no time. In his spare time, he likes to spend time with his wife and son.

FRANK S.

Frank is one of two customer service representatives devoted to picking up and delivering customers’ cars. He’s also a local celebrity. Bearing a strong resemblance to the “Most Interesting Man in the World” in beer ads, Frank is the face of CARSS TV commercials and billboard ads. Notable quote: “I don’t often make quotations, but when I do, I mention the unsurpassed quality of repair work done at CARSS. Choose wisely, my friends. Choose CARSS for all of your auto repair needs.”

CHRIS S.

Chris has been a CARSS employee since the business began back in 2005. He’s known around the shop as the “go-to” guy—because there’s never been a repair challenge that Chris hasn’t been able to diagnose and fix. Away from the shop, he enjoys rock-climbing and swimming. Notable quote: “If it’s broken, we can always find a way to make it work. I provide the best service possible to my customers and make sure they understand exactly what’s going on with their vehicles.”

DAVID H.

Dave started off at CARSS as an apprentice technician, but has developed into an expert in diagnostics and repair. He’s known around the shop for his constant smile. Notable quote: “I have the attitude of ‘doing whatever it takes to get the job done.’”

PATRICK B.

With 20 years of experience in the auto repair field, Pat is truly a seasoned veteran. He’s been a fleet vehicle technician at CARSS for the past four years. His goal is always to “do it right the first time.” When off the job, Pat enjoys activities with his family and riding his motorcycle. Notable quote:  “I enjoy making CARSS a shop where our customers feel confident in handing their cars over to us for repairs.”
