Creating Brighter Futures with Cars for Keeps

The Premier team is excited to share an inspiring story of how our team and community have come together to support a fantastic local ministry.

Read on to learn more about Cars for Keeps—an organization with a cause that aligns perfectly with Premier’s mission of spreading joy and happiness through professional auto detailing.

What is Cars for Keeps?

Cars for Keeps—led by Founder Cory Shivley—is a remarkable ministry that places vehicles into the hands of individuals in need through a unique no-interest lease-to-own program.

But, the program is much more than just providing cars. It’s about wrapping financial education and accountability around the vehicle ownership experience. Participants engage in quarterly budget reviews, set and work toward financial goals, and gain a better understanding of financial management with the goal of moving toward financial stability and independence.

The Impact of Cars for Keeps

Having reliable transportation can significantly improve someone’s quality of life. It provides access to better-paying jobs, medical care, social connections, and community activities. It even allows children to participate in sports and other extracurricular activities, fostering a sense of freedom and community involvement.

Anyone who’s ever been stranded without a vehicle knows the feeling of having to put their life on hold—a predicament Cars for Keeps wants to help individuals in need overcome. Corey shares that their goal is “helping those individuals who feel stuck become unstuck and self-reliant and free.”

After fundraising and diligent work, Cars for Keep is currently planning on placing vehicles with four applicants this spring.

Premier's Contribution

At Premier Auto Detailing, we believe in supporting initiatives that make a positive impact in our community. When we learned about Cars for Keeps and the incredible work Corey and his team are doing, we knew we wanted to help.

To further support their mission, we are proud to donate $1,500 to Cars for Keeps. This donation will assist in providing more vehicles to individuals who need them, empowering them to achieve financial stability and independence.

We strive to create joy and happiness through our services, and extending this mission to support a cause like Cars for Keeps feels like a natural extension of our values.

We want to express our heartfelt thanks to Corey Shively for his dedication to the community, our amazing team at Premier, and of course, our amazing customers. It’s through your support of our business that we can make such meaningful contributions.

Let’s continue to support each other and our community, creating a brighter, more connected future for everyone.

Why is ceramic coating the most elite paint protection product on the market?

Premier ceramic coating offers nano-ceramic compounds that provide the maximum level of slickness, protection, and durability.

A normal clear coat has hardness between 2H and 4H. However, ceramic coatings have a hardness above 9H. This shield is the hardest paint coating on the market today and prevents minor scratches to your clearcoat and acts as a sacrificial layer.

Think of ceramic coatings as an additional clear coat layer, only a lot harder. All of this allows for more peace of mind and a fuller enjoyment of your vehicle, even in harsh environments.

Permanent Protection

* We protect all plastics, vinyl, leather, Alcantara, carpet, and upholstery to help repel dirt, dust, and stains. We do not coat interior glass as it will cause fogging issues.

* A new tint can be applied to driver and passenger windows to match other factory-tinted windows on SUVs and trucks.
