Impact and Programs
In FY20 we saved our customers approximately $425, 600 in car repair costs by completing 706 repairs, 44 pre purchase inspections, 61 estimates, and advising 218 people that their vehicles were not worth investing in. Of those customers 494 of them were new customers to The Lift. Additionally, 35 people attended car care classes and we kept our full staff of 12 people employed throughout the pandemic.
1) Our primary mission and goal is always to fix as many low income people's vehicles as we can, correctly, efficiently and safely.
2) We have a goal of opening more days of the week and/or more hours a day to serve more people.
3) We plan to expand our mobile van service to serve more customers and to respond more nimbly to urgent requests.
