Green Auto Repairs  in Boulder Since 1993

While some auto repair shops talk organic, we live and breathe it daily.

We are one of the first businesses in Boulder County to invest in clean and renewable energy, enrolling in the Xcel Energy Windsource for Business Program in the 1990s.

Moreover, Independent Motors is one of the first businesses in Boulder to join Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE) since it began back in 1993.

In 2018, we became the first local auto repair facility to earn triple PACE Certification for:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Waste diversion
  • Water efficiency

Today, our commitment to environmental sustainability is stronger than ever. In fact, Boulder Tire, a subsidiary of Independent Motors, was recently featured on CBS4 in its ongoing efforts to recycle old tires.
