Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper helps technicians obtain the tools of their trade so they can better assist their customers and the certified service centers where they work. Since its inception six years ago this program has awarded almost $16,000 to qualified technicians.

During 2011 a $500 and $250 award is given each quarter. To apply for an award, the technician must complete an online entry with a short essay on how they could improve their business against their competition if they had a specific tool. A panel of judges reviews the applications and determines the winners based on which tool, if purchased, would benefit the employee and his or her service center team the most.
