Puget Sound Auto Repair is the only shop you need for almost any car repair or maintenance issue. They service all makes and models and can handle everything from basic tune ups to full-scale engine installations. According to owner Allen Allers, “we really enjoy educating our customers about what their cars need and don’t need.”

While auto repair shops have been deemed essential services during the pandemic, Allen and his wife Brenda have had to endure the stress of ensuring their staff and customers remained safe. “We’ve really just had to learn how to be comfortable working in uncertain times,” says Brenda.

Their skills as mechanics are also coming into play as they help members of the community. Knowing how critical it is to help people during this time, the Allers jumped at the opportunity to join Columbia Bank’s Pass It On Project. Puget Sound Auto Repair is providing free auto repairs, and Columbia Bank is paying the bill. “We are excited to get several of our wonderful client’s vehicles back in running order,” says Allen. “They’ve been financially affected by COVID and with Columbia Bank’s support, we are going to help remove that worry from them.”
