The Care Shop Offers Smog Tests for Less Than Ever Before

Family-Owned Business Passes on Generous Savings to Customers as a Result of New Smog Laws


Chino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/23/2016 -- Traffic in one of the most heavily traveled cities in the country can be exhausting. Southern California is known for long commutes exacerbated by the tremendous number of cars on the road. Those cars produce a large amount of unhealthy carbon dioxide that harms the air quality in the southland. Fortunately, one car care center not only provides motorists with a state-enforced smog check, but does so at a remarkably cheap price. Based in Chino, California, in the southwestern part of San Bernardino County, The Care Shop has been able to reduce costs for customers. In 2015, new regulations forced smog check locations to utilize new DADs (data acquisition devices). This equipment allows professionals to perform smog tests more efficiently and for less money, a savings which The Care Shop passes on to its customers.

Simply by being family owned, The Care Shop stands in stark contrast to many of their competitors. That kind of small company feel is perpetuated throughout the business, and allows all of the team members to turn their focus on the customer, rather than a quota or commission. In addition to smog check services, The Care Shop also specializes in general repairs, diagnostics, major repairs, and regular maintenance. Some of their services include:

- Factory scheduled services
- Tune-ups and diagnostics
- Cooling systems, belts, hoses,
- Brakes and ABS Systems Repair
- Batteries and Electrical Repairs
- Air Conditioning and Heating
- Transmissions and Drive Axles,
- Steering, Suspension and Alignment

Years ago, smog tests would amount to a $60 charge to the customer, The Care Shop offers the same service for vehicles from 2000 and newer for just $39.95. This is a hefty 33% in savings, a marked improvement on what nearly every other car center offers. "The new smog regulations and equipment enables us to do the same work faster, and help customers get back on the road and where they need to go," explained company owner Mark Johnson. "It is one of our bread-and-butter services, and we are happy to pass those savings onto our customers and demonstrate our commitment to giving our clientele high quality service at optimum price points"
