Green Drop Garage is Portland’s eco-friendly one-stop auto shop. We are set up to fix or maintain whatever your car needs. From oil changes to brakes, to electrical work to full-on engine overhauls, we’ve got you covered.
Our shop strives to to be as sustainable as possible, while ensuring there is no compromise in quality of product or repair. Of course, just like any other shop in town, we recycle all fluids and dispose of hazardous materials properly. Recycling of papers, metals, and glass is a given.
So, how are we actually different? We use a high quality re-refined motor oil for your oil changes (It uses 85% less energy to produce than conventional motor oil). Our chemicals, when available, are low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds).
Other shops might loan you a car to get around while they work on your car. We have a couple nice bikes from BikenHike, fully equipped with locks, helmets and lights, that you can use until we finish with your car. We also use bikes to run our errands. And, of course, we are the only ones in town who can convert your diesel to run on 100% pure vegetable oil!
Most important though, is the goal to keep your car on the road as long as possible. When it comes down to it, this is still more eco-friendly than buying a new car. We know what you think about car repair shops, and we know the pains you’ve been through…But what if you actually enjoyed going to the mechanic? Would your car be better maintained? Have less leaks? Last longer? Be more eco-friendly?
