Minneapolis Non-Profit Auto Repair Services
The Lift Garage is an affordable, non-profit auto repair service for all Minnesotans that meet the 150% Federal Poverty Guideline. We charge only $15 per hour plus the cost of parts at no mark-up. We serve all counties in Minnesota.
Our goal is getting cars safe and back on the road, so we work on brakes, tires, suspension and steering, starting and charging systems, fuel systems, exhaust systems, and heating and cooling systems (not air conditioning). We do not do work on transmissions or the body. We are also not able to do significant engine repairs such as head gaskets or engine rebuilds. We are no longer able to make payment plans; this change was instated after the CNN article.
If you are looking to schedule an appointment or have more specific questions, give us a call. We have a waitlist for appointments and the typical wait for an appointment is about 6 months. We are open Monday - Thursday 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM and Fridays 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM.
If you are a caseworker you can fill out The Lift Garage – Income Verification Form and email it to us at [email protected] or mail to PO Box 6992, Minneapolis, MN 55406. We do not have fax capabilities. Once you send a referral the customer needs to call to set up an appointment.
