Sanford Firestone Auto Repair is celebrating 4 generations of service

Cars have come a long way; they've got a lot more electronic components and they've become quite a bit more computerized since the 80's.

The Sanford family is currently entering its fourth generation in the auto repair business. It started with the gas station Joseph Sanford Sr. opened at Geary Blvd. and Masonic Avenue. His son, Joseph John "Jack" Sanford also had a station, then became the owner of one of the area's first independent Firestone stores, which he built in partnership with the company. When Jack Sanford died in 1999, his son John took over, and he is now showing the ropes to his son Christopher.

John Sanford says he has seen a lot of changes since he first started working at the shop. "Cars have come a long way," said Sanford. "They've got a lot more electronic components and they've become quite a bit more computerized since the 80s."

But Sanford Firestone is keeping up by making sure all their mechanics have Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification. They're also on top of the latest innovations such as nitrogen-filled tires. To learn more about the variety of services offered by Sanford, call (650) 557-4468, visit them on the web at:, or drop by their shop located at 705 Hickey Blvd in Pacifica, California.
