About Us

CARSTAR Courtenay is part of a Multi-Store Organization that is Vancouver Island based. This also includes CARSTAR Duncan and an independent Mechanic shop; Dickson and Fraser Auto repair. Owner, Ryan Isherwood started in the industry as a collision tech 20 years ago but became frustrated with the seeming inability to combine quality work while maintaining a positive work environment. Ryan decided to start his own collision repair shop; Isherwood Body and Fender in Duncan, B.C. and in 6 years his original shop went from $0 in sales to the second largest shop in the Cowichan Valley. Ryan recently took the opportunity to purchase a second Collision Repair shop in Courtenay, B.C. when the former owner decided to retire.

At CARSTAR Courtenay we are continuously reinvesting in our facilities, training for the team members and making sure our equipment is staying current with the cutting edge of vehicle evolution. CARSTAR Courtenay employees are like a family and take pride in their jobs and in their community.
