Independent Motors: Pioneers in eco-friendly auto repair in Boulder, CO

Independent Motors is the first auto repair shop in Boulder County to attain three PACE Certifications.

Just about everyone wants to do their part in making our planet a better place to live. Today, customers at Independent Motors can count themselves among them.

Independent Motors is the first auto repair shop in Boulder County to attain three PACE Certifications. They are one of only three local businesses to have earned the triple honor.

“We’re proud of our hard-earned certifications,” says Bill Bender, owner of Independent Motors. “This acknowledges our on-going commitment to the environment while still offering superior customer service.”

Earning triple PACE certification status is no easy feat. PACE certified partners must commit to supporting sustainable business practices in the community. They divert large amounts of waste from landfills and conserve energy and water.

PACE certification requires that a business divert at least 85 percent of its waste away from landfills. Independent Motors went above-and-beyond and diverted 87% in 2018!

The company also displayed greater energy efficiency than 75% of businesses in the same sector and 20% more water efficient than required by building code.

PACE's certification performance criteria are consistent with the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) criteria, as well as Energy Star Building certification.

"Running a green auto repair shop is one of our top goals here at Independent Motors," says Bender. "We’re one of the first businesses in Boulder to partner with PACE since it began back in 1993. It’s an honor to do our part and join the ranks of other PACE certified businesses."

Independent Motors has been an active part of the local business community since 1983. They are an honest, cost-competitive auto repair shop that values community and the environment.

These traits are the cornerstones of their business. Over the years they've come to serve second and third generations of vehicle owners, making them a family tradition. Skilled mechanics and master technicians bring years of experience and the best in auto repair technology to the table. Moreover, their state-of-the-art auto repair facility is second to none. In 2017, the company acquired Boulder Import Motors, making them a one-stop shop for Domestic, German, Asian and Hybrid car repair in Boulder.
