Howdy! My name is Eric Garves. I am a part owner of FIVE STAR PDR, along with Daimen Simmons. I was trained in 2007 by Daimen, who currently has over 10 years experience himself. We stay busy year round in Austin, TX and Fort Worth, TX by doing retail work, servicing multiple bodyshops, and dealer routes. We don’t chase hail however if it hails in either city (which it seems to do every year), then it’s a bonus and we find ourselves in need of qualified techs who are reliable and can produce high quality repairs. We joined this site to make it easier to seek out and partner with hail techs we can trust!
I began my PDR carrier in 1999 in Mexico City, Mexico and have been working in the field ever since. I moved back to the States with my wife and 2 boys in 2006.
I have been specializing in Hail Damage Repair for the last 12 years of my career. I have worked in many body shops, dealerships, manufacturing facilities, and directly with customers with damaged vehicles. I have been fortunate enough that my skills have allowed me to work in places such as South Africa, Peru, and all over Mexico and the U.S.
I am a firm believer that the results of my work are my business card! I uphold the highest standards of quality in my work, I have excellent work ethic, and I treat everyone with respect. I am very passionate about my business and excited to be a part of PDR Nation.
I am also a graduate of the University of Georgia with a B.A. In Political Science.
