SoCal collision shop owner launches into vehicle ADAS calibration business

With the advances in vehicle technology, Jered Tucker says he realized the potential liability when subletting calibrations and opened his own facility

Imperial, Calif.—Car ADAS Solutions has announced ADAS Vision as a new licensee. Owned by Jered Tucker, the 3,200-square-foot facility is in Imperial, Calif.

Kevin Caruso, COO of Car ADAS Solutions, said that Tucker has been in the collision space for many years and is a pillar in his community. “Jered prides himself on providing a quality repair and is known for this in the community they serve. He’s excited to extend their outreach in the calibration space and ‘Make the world a safer place to drive.’”
Tucker grew up in the industry working with his father, Jerry, at their body shop, Tucker Auto Body. Located in Brawley, Calif., the family business was founded in 1986 and primarily focused on towing. Jerry Tucker found that many people needed assistance after an accident so they expanded the shop to include collision repair.

Jered purchased the business from his father in 2016 and now manages it with his wife, Jessica. The towing company, Tucker Auto Care and Tow, is a separate business.
Tucker said his I-CAR Gold Class shop invests in advanced diagnostic equipment and makes sure his team thoroughly research and repair every vehicle according to OEM procedures. “Our team has one goal in mind — to get cars back to their pre-loss condition in a reasonable amount of time. We approach every repair as if the vehicle belonged to our own family.”

With the technological advances taking place in vehicles, Tucker said he realized the potential liability when subletting calibrations. He reached out to Greg Peeters, CEO of Car ADAS Solutions, to learn more about opening his own calibration facility. “It was exactly what I wanted due to their detailed reporting and documentation process. The step-by-step process takes a lot of the guesswork out of doing a calibration the correct way.”

Tucker and his team have since opened their calibration facility, ADAS Vision, on Feb. 15, near the collision repair shop and towing business. “I love the way that everything turned out. The way they have you set up the building is very clean, organized and professional. Car ADAS Solutions’ process takes you step by step through the calibration process so you learn everything from A to Z.”
During the onboarding process, Tucker and his technician, Darryl Richardson, attended the Car ADAS Solutions’ ADAS Calibration Technician Certification Program in Salt Lake City. “They are doing a lot behind the scenes to ensure that technology and OEM processes are met. When they find a way of doing something better, they tell us right away.
“The whole point of calibration is to keep people safe. If you don’t calibrate correctly, then the system is not going to work.”
