After recently celebrating its 30th anniversary, the family owned and operated automotive repair business, Furgerson’s Garage is proud to be named a certified “Green Station.” The Bureau of Automotive Repair and the state’s Department of Toxic Substances Control officially recognized the shop after its continued effort to prevent chemical waste and pollution.

Designed by the Bureau, the Green Station Recognition Program recognizes businesses that uphold the highest environmental standards. The program advocates for the reduction of our carbon footprint on the world and believes businesses like Furgerson’s Garage should be praised for their environmentally friendly practices.

Furgerson’s Garage owner, Brad Dow, agrees with this advocacy. “As an automotive repair professional in California, I feel it’s my responsibility to do all that I can to protect our environment, not only by properly performing Smog Check inspection and repairs that aid in keeping our air clean, but also handling and disposing of the toxic substances we generate in an environmentally friendly way.”

Furgerson’s Garage is one of two auto shops in the city that has been certified as a “Green Station.” Only 36 auto shops have received certification in California.

Even before certifications were available, Furgerson’s Garage was operating with the environment in mind, assisting car owners in understanding how to lower emissions and keep their vehicle as “green” as possible. The auto shop also takes pride in recycling engine oil, batteries, fluid filters, scrap metal parts and more.

In addition, Furgerson’s Garage provides gas mileage-related diagnostics and repairs to reduce fuel consumption, as well as accurate diagnosis and repair of any oil, fluid, coolant or refrigerant leak. Since its Green Station recognition, Furgerson’s Garage has been an example for the automotive business in how to operate with integrity and respect for the environment.

“It costs a little extra to have the recycling and spill containers and a little more labor time,” Dow said. “There is a cost to it, but it’s far outweighed by the positive environmental impact.”

Furgerson’s Garage handles all diagnostic, maintenance, and repairs for your vehicle. From minor maintenance like oil changes and tune-ups to major repairs, the ASE certified master technicians and certified service advisors at Furgerson’s are equipped to handle all your auto repair needs.
