Go The Extra Mile | Graham Auto Repair Essentials

Graham Auto Repair | Essential #4 "Go the Extra Mile. Be willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish the job, plus a little bit more. Whether it's starting early, staying late, or doing something that's not in your job description. It's the Extra Mile that separates the average person from the Superstar. Be a Superstar!"

Quarantine Haircut | The Boss Gets a Haircut!

Quarantine Haircut | The Boss Gets a Haircut!

Click on the picture or this Link to watch the YouTube Video   In Washington State we've been under the Governor's "Stay Home Stay Safe Order" for . . . awhile. For that reason our Boss (Troy, the Owner of Graham Auto Repair) hasn't been able to get a proper haircut and it was definitely time!   So our Service Advisor Brian stepped up and did the Unthinkable - he gave our Boss a Quarantine Haircut! How did it go? Well, you'll have to watch the video to see the results. Or checkout our TikTok Page. Or stop by the Shop and see his fresh new haircut for yourself! Disclaimer: You may hear talk about Graham Auto Repair starting up our own Hair Salon, "Graham Auto Hair Repair" (the name is still up for debate). I want to let you know here and now, that's just not happening. We won't be giving away free haircuts with a 30k 60k or 90k Service at Grah ... read more

Stay at Home Order | Message of Encouragement

Stay at Home Order | Message of Encouragement

A Message of Encouragement During The Stay at Home Order The Stay at Home Order has impacted all of us in so many ways. We have had to be separated during a time when we’ve needed each other the most. Schools and businesses have been closed and thrust into a new world of Zoom Calls and learning how to be productive while Working From Home. So many people have lost their jobs, and have had to rely on Unemployment, maybe for the first time. There have been so many unknowns about our future and where we will go from here. There have been so many negative impacts on all of us; and all of the negativity in the News and on Social Media has only served to make us feel trapped, insecure, overwhelmed, and lost. Now more than ever we need to come together and build each other up. We need hope, love, kindness, support, and positivity. We have seen so many stories of community; people reaching out and finding ways to help each other despite this separation. So today we are asking the qu ... read more

By clicking on the Picture Above you can check-out our YouTube Video. Using UV Lighting to Sanitize At Graham Auto Repair we have started working on something new. As soon as we heard that it may be possible to destroy the Coronavirus / COVID-19 using Ultraviolet (UV) technology, we researched how to offer this service in our Shop, to assist in slowing down the spread of the virus. Let’s take a moment to talk about UV Lighting, what it is and how we are using it. What is UV Lighting? As you may already be aware, there are multiple types of UV lighting. All of these are produced by the sun. The types of Ultraviolet wavelengths that we normally hear about are UV-A and UV-B. These are the types that we regularly seek protection from, especially during the summer months, by wearing sunscreen. Exposure to UV-B rays will increase the risk of DNA and other cellular damage in living organisms; but about 95% of UV-B rays are ... read more
