Our prices are competitive, but our quality is never compromised! 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. Our team is small but mighty. It's me, 3 technicians Dan, Kevin and Matt, and 1 service advisor Daniel. We have 5 bays, 5 lifts, and the latest tools and technology on hand. Keeping with Paul Smit 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! The history of The Car Care Center ultimately began in a rundown shack behind a small rental house on the west side of Nashville, TN. My father, Paul Smith Sr., had opened other auto repair shops in the area over the proceeding years but was never able to make it sustainable. He was a great mechanic with a very high level of integrity but hadn't yet developed the business acumen necessary to keep things going. Each time he closed a business, he would take what he learned and would open a new shop.

In the fall of 1981, we moved to a small rental house on Charlotte Pk in West Nashville (just behind what is now Chick-Filet). Behind this house was a very small garage (really more of a shack). It was here that Paul's Garage was born. The garage had no doors and only had a dirt/gravel floor. During the winter my father would take my brother and I to K-Mart to gather old cardboard boxes. We would take these boxes home and my Father would staple them together to make a door for the garage so that he could stay warm. Although the work was hard and the hours were long, Paul's Garage began to grow.

In 1986, Paul had saved enough to feel comfortable renting a "real shop". Wanting to stay in the West Nashville area, he rented a large shop on the corner of Croley Dr. and Robertson Rd. He hired a few new mechanics and the business steadily grew. Paul's Garage developed a strong reputation for excellent service and quality. Though business was good, Paul Sr. felt led to move the business and his family out of the city and into a more rural area. The fall of 1989 began a new phase for the Smith Family. After months of looking for just the right location the decision to settle in Pegram was made. Property was purchased, a building erected, and Paul's Garage became The Car Care Center. The name "The Car Care Center" was quite accidental. While the new building was being built, Paul put a sign out front saying "Car Care Center Coming Soon!". Several local folks stopped and asked "When is the car care center going to be open?" It was then that Paul Sr. decided that the name was supposed to be changed from Paul's Garage to The Car Care Center.

From 1989 through 2015 Paul Sr built a strong business on the foundation of impeccable integrity and high-quality repairs. Paul Sr retired at the end of 2015 after nearly 40 years of ownership. I took over full ownership in January of 2016 with a determination to change the way people feel about auto repair. Honesty, integrity, clear communication, and the highest quality repairs are the bedrock foundation of how we operate. We back all of that up with an industry leading 3 year/36,000 mile Nationwide warranty on our repairs.
