Doin’ Good In The Hood

Community We Love to Help!

Hey there, neighbor! At Harrell Automotive, we don’t just fix cars; we fuel connections. For over 15 years, we’ve been more than a repair shop; we’ve become an integral part of this vibrant community. From our ‘Pumpkin Spice Oil Changes’ that brought smiles and caffeine kicks in 2021 to gifting vehicles in 2023, our journey has been peppered with heartwarming stories. We’ve had the privilege of assisting veterans, elderly friends, and those in need of a helping hand. We’ve kitted out our community with tablets and laptops and rallied behind the Erie Otters since 2019. When times got tough in 2020, we offered free cabin air filter changes during the pandemic. Our very own Paisley Harrell even led the charge for school supplies for a local elementary school. And let’s not forget our cherished friends like Denise Gibson, who’s been with us since the very beginning in 2009. The list goes on, from affordable oil changes to spreading the Otter’s cheer with family packs of tickets. We’re all in this together and here to prove it. Welcome to the Harrell Automotive family!
