Repair it Forward

PAR-Repair-It-Forward-Logo-01Repair it Forward is a program developed by The Stephenson Family that is tailored to help families that have fallen on hard times in the community around us. We all need our vehicles on a daily basis to get to work, pick up our children, make it to doctor’s appointments, and to get to the grocery store. Individuals without a working car will find that asking for rides or taking public transportation can sometimes be a bit of a headache and an inconvenience for all parties involved.

The Repair it Forward program was developed in 2015 to help one lucky family per year that has a vehicle that is unsafe, doesn’t run, won’t pass state inspection, or they just don’t have the money to fix the car. This family would receive up to $3,000 in vehicle repairs courtesy of Precision Auto Repair.

In 2017, 3rd Annual Repair It Forward – This year we wanted to do something a little different so that we could help more than just one family. We also wanted to change the giveaway to a time that we felt would benefit more people. So this year we will accept applications for the month of September and give $1500 to 2 separate families to help cure their “Back to School Blues“.

Here’s how to enter

To be considered you must fill out the form below. The ideal candidate will outline their hardship to detail how having a working vehicle will help get them back on track. The contest rules are as follows;


  • Must have a vehicle registered in their name.Porsche mechanic west springfield ma
  • Must completely fill out the form below. A friend or family member can submit on your behalf.
  • Entries can NOT be made in person at Precision Auto or on the phone
  • $1,500 in repair allowance is valid only at Precision Auto Repair in West Springfield, MA. All parts for the repair will be provided by Autopart International of West Springfield, MA. The $1,500 repair credit includes all parts, labor, state taxes, and fees. The entire $1,500 can be used and if it is not used then the balance of the credit will go unused and be forfeited by the end user. The repairs performed will not exceed $1,500.
  • Repairs can only be mechanical such as brakes, suspension, tires, engine and transmission issues, exhaust problems, etc. No body repairs will be considered in this program. Your vehicle can have light body damage such as dings, dents, scratches, light rust, and anything that will not cause the vehicle to fail Massachusetts State Inspection. Any major body repairs such as collision damage, major rust and rot, and any other cosmetic issue that render the vehicle unsafe will not be considered.
  • The winner will be chosen by a panel of 5 people that have volunteered to review all applications. The panel will be looking for an applicant that has shown that they will benefit the most from this program based on their descriptions of the hardship and explanation of why this program will help them
  • The next Repair it Forward will be run in the fall of 2018

While Repair it Forward is by far our biggest program of this kind each year. We do offer similar programs at various times throughout the year. So feel free to check back regularly.
