If I come to your repair shop for routine scheduled maintenance work, will my manufacturer’s warranty be void?
No. If you come to us for routine scheduled maintenance work, your manufacturer’s warranty will not be void. It is against the law for your car dealer & manufacturer to refuse you warranty work because you had routine scheduled maintenance performed at an independent repair shop. (Magnuson-Moss Act (1975) USC Title 15-Chapter 50 Section 2301-2312)

What is included in the “Enviro/suppl” cost on my repair order?
This cost is included to cover various Shop Supplies and Environmental Fees. For the Shop Supplies, it includes many of the miscellaneous materials needed to repair your car, which cannot be charged directly to your work order, because the cost of the unit package is greater than the amount used. For this reason, these materials are billed directly to you as a percent of the parts and labor charge, as this is the most equitable way of charging for these materials. Included in the list of materials used in the course of repairs to your car, may be the following:
Gasket Sealer Comp.
Slip Yoke Grease
Acid & Rosin Core Solder
Polishing & Grinding Discs
Valve Grinding Compound
Hydramatic Parts Cleaner
Assorted Clips & Fasteners
Weather Strip Cement
Spark Plug Comp.
Parts Cleaners & Brushes
Rust Penetrant and Solvent
For the Environmental Fees, the costs accrued with the hazardous materials associated with the auto repair business are included. As these expenses cannot be charged directly to a repair order as they occur, it is necessary to charge out a flat rate on each repair order in order to keep our labor rate as low as possible. Below is a partial list of some of these charges imposed on us:
- Removal of Waste Oil
- Removal of Anti-Freeze
- Removal of Lead-Acid Batteries
- Proper disposal of Parts Cleaner
- Proper Ventilation for Technicians doing Brake Service
- Proper Documentation of Materials Used and Stored
- Proper Training of Employees and Vendors
- Very Large Insurance Policy to Cover any Hazardous Material Accident
- Underground Storage Tank Testing
Are there any fees associated with the purchase of new tires?
Yes, when you purchase new tires and you want us to dispose your old tires then there is a Proper Tire Disposal Fee of $3.00 per tire.
