Meet Our Owners
For owners Gary and Shawntele Green, it was their destiny to own an auto repair shop. When they first met in 1996, Gary was a self-employed mobile mechanic. He would visit a variety of different shops and homes, repairing any vehicle that needed it. He had also earned his ASE Certification, a signal of how determined Gary was to become successful in the industry.
Over time, the interest in owning a business grew for the couple and eventually, they did. Gary’s love of auto repair and Shawntele’s desire to own a business created Gary’s Auto Service, a mobile mechanic business. For 12 years, Gary and Shawntele managed Gary’s Auto Service and traveled all over Louisiana. As they saw their business flourish, they knew more could be achieved. With that in mind, they moved to their first building in 2008 and were there for seven years until they moved into their current building in 2015!
Now with a new building in hand and their passion for auto repair stronger than ever, Gary, Shawntele, and the rest of the Star Automotive team is here to help you!
Our team has been around the block a few times. With over 40 years of auto repair experience, you’d think we’d know it all. Though that idea is nice, the truth is that the auto repair industry is always evolving. If we don’t stay aware of what’s going on we wouldn’t be able to provide you with the auto care you need, and that’s not acceptable. To stay up-to-date, our shop has made a commitment to continued education. Not only do we expect all of our technicians to be ASE Certified, but we also expect them to return to the classroom and stay abreast of everything new coming out of the auto repair industry.
To solidify what they’ve learned in the classroom, we then challenge our technicians in the garage. Since our shop accepts all makes and models, our team needs to understand a variety of different processes that are specific to each vehicle make, model, and brand. We work hard to ensure we stay true to whatever the vehicle demands are, from maintenance schedules to transmission repair.
Our competitive edge lies in the vision of our customers. For them, quality service doesn’t stop at auto repair, it includes the entire auto service experience. From the front desk to the garage, the Star Automotive team wants to make sure you enjoy every step in our process.
When you enter our shop, you can expect a warm greeting from one of our team members and an attentive ear to what’s going on with your vehicle. Afterward, we’ll provide you with options on how we’ll proceed and from there, it’s up to you to decide. We will not move forward with the repair until it’s approved by you! If approved, we’ll perform the repair (and just that repair)! Once we’re finished, we’ll provide you with a step-by-step breakdown of what we worked on and give you tips on how to avoid the problem in the future!
We center all of our customer interaction around trust, loyalty, and integrity. When you come into our shop, you’ll understand why we do.
