Were you in an automobile accident recently? There’s a place you can go that will fix the damage without charging for labor — as long as you live within Nashoba Valley Technical High School’s eight-town district.

Students and staff in Nashoba Tech’s Automotive Collision Repair & Refinishing program can fix those dents, give your car a new paint job and make it look as good as new. And they’ll only charge for parts and materials — no labor.

There are some caveats. Nashoba Tech will consider repairing the vehicle if:
        • It’s registered and insured.
        • The necessary repairs meet the educational and curriculum requirements of the school.
        • The work is the result of a collision and is not a restoration project.
        • The owner of the vehicle lives in Ayer, Chelmsford, Groton, Littleton, Pepperell, Shirley, Townsend or Westford.

“Basically, we’ll repair the car if there is educational value to it,” said Michael Robichaud, an instructor in the Automotive Collision Repair & Refinishing program.

If you and your car meet those criteria, call 978-692-4711, ext. 6128, to make an appointment to have your vehicle assessed.
