Giving Back to Our Community

Auto Body Hawaii has been blessed over the years, with thousands of loyal collision repair customers who have trusted us, to help them through a less-than-positive experience in their lives.

Vehicle Donation Program

Auto Body Hawaii recognizes that helping families in need is the best way of giving back to the local community that supports us.

First Responder’s Workshop

Auto Body Hawaii conducts regular extrication workshops for Hawaii’s First Responders. It is part of an on-going effort to provide Hawaii County’s first responders and rescue workforce (fire, police, EMTs, etc.) the hands-on opportunity they vitally need to effectively safe lives.

Environmental Stewardship

Auto Body Hawaii was the first repair facility on the Big Island to convert from solvent based vehicle paint to environmentally friendly waterborne vehicle paint. Waterborne paint is the future of modern refinishing; simply put, waterborne refinish materials are better for the environment, for the community and better for the technicians who work with it.

Vocational Scholarship

We support education of future collision technicians through the March Taylor Educational Scholarship Throughout his life March strived to support the community and share his knowledge with young people, encouraging them to consider careers in the collision industry. There is an increased importance for qualified technicians and training is available to further benefit professionals in the field of auto body work.

Car Care Workshops

These workshops are designed to better acquaint the girls with their vehicles’ maintenance needs before they reach driving age. They learn about vehicle safety and what to do if they are involved in an accident. We are proud to play our part in educating girls before they start driving will help keep them informed and safe. We want them to understand more about their cars, the importance of having them properly maintained, as well as safe driving practices.
