SOCKtember 2023

SOCKtember 2023

What is SOCKtember? We are so glad you asked! September is the month we dedicate to collecting NEW SOCKS that we will donate to local charities in our community. Socks are one of the most high-demand items that are needed for people of all ages. Our Team will be competing with other teams throughout the world (yes, there are other countries competing!) to try and collect the MOST new socks for charity. This Annual Sock Raising Competition started in 2020. We joined Jon Isaacson's Team in 2021 & 2022. This year we started our own Team: The SOCK-et Wrenches! Who are The SOCK-et Wrenches? Our Team is made up of 10 Auto Repair Shops across the United States! How do we know each other? We met through ATI -- the Automotive Training Institute. Our group meets on a monthly basis to collaborate, learn, and grow together. This year we decided to team-up to collect socks together, across the country. At the end of the month, eac ... read more

When is it time for an oil change?

When is it time for an oil change?

Is it time for an Oil Change Service?  It's always a good idea to be prepared and up-to-date on your vehicle maintenance services. So if you're asking yourself, "Is it time for an Oil Change?" then the answer is most likely yes! Regular oil change services are essential in keeping your vehicle running smoothly and efficiently. For most vehicles, you should schedule an oil service every 3-4 months. Why? Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. It ensures that all of the vehicle components are properly lubricated. This helps to reduce friction between the moving parts, which can improve overall engine performance and efficiency. Keeping up on your maintenance services assists in preventing future breakdowns!  With every service at Graham Auto Repair, our Technicians will perform a digital vehicle inspection. This inspection is free! Why do we do this? Because it's our goal to keep you and your loved ones safe when you're on the road! We do this by inspect ... read more

Happy Birthday Amber!

Happy Birthday Amber!

In January we celebrated Amber's birthday at Graham Auto Repair! We first met Amber in November 2021, shortly after we met her husband Bart. Bart is our Production Manager at our Yelm location. Amber and her husband have gone above and beyond to show our team that they care! We were very excited when Amber accepted an offer to join our Hiring Team in May 2022. As a military spouse Amber has had the opportunity to work in many different industries. After 15 years of working in human resources, she has enjoyed recruiting the most. She is always excited to help people find the perfect position that will help them meet their career goals. It's an added bonus that she gets to do that while working alongside her husband; supporting him as he grows in his own career! We are blessed to have both of them serving on our team. From the beginning Amber has always been willing to do whatever it takes to help out around the shop. Whether that means helping clean up or bringing in trea ... read more
