Eco-conscious Green Drop Garage Opens Second Location

Posted on 01 October 2015 by Jason

In an effort to mitigate the environmental impact of car ownership and care, Green Drop Garage has opened a second location in southeast Portland, servicing most makes and models, including vegetable oil-fueled, hybrid and utility vehicles. Many of their cleaners, lubricants and washers are also low-VOC and as environmentally friendly as possible without compromising quality.
In addition to offering eco-conscious vehicle maintenance, online appointment setting and loaner bicycles—complete with locks, helmets and safety lights—for customer use while vehicles are being serviced, Green Drop Garage also offers Women-Only Basic Car Care classes to those who feel less than confident talking to a mechanic, or if female customers just want to learn car-care basics in a non-intimidating atmosphere.
For those planning cold-weather holiday getaways, Green Drop doesn’t want to see anyone set out on the open road unprepared. Learn how to inspect your vehicle to prevent common breakdowns. Build the ultimate prep kit to help handle those times when the compost hits the fan or to assist a fellow motorist in need. This is a hands-on experience, with the opportunity to crawl under cars and get dirty. Participants will leave with the pseudo-official pre-trip checklist and a new appreciation for duct tape.

Locations: 1417 SE 9th Ave., Portland; phone 503-236-7767 and 5321 SE 28th Ave., Portland; phone 503-567-8344. Visit to schedule a service or maintenance drop-off online.
