ABOUT FRONT RANGE AUTOMOTIVE
Front Range Automotive has been family-owned and operated for ten plus years. When we opened our doors on February 7th of 2006, we weren’t sure what to expect on the success of it being it was our first ‘family-owned’ business; but, ten plus years later, and still going strong, we still continue to grow, thanks to all our wonderful customers and neighboring community continuing to support us.
We take HUGE pride in our customers and their satisfaction with us. Our business is based off word of mouth and referrals and little to no advertisement, so our marketing technique is based off of our customers and their satisfaction with us. We hope and plan to always structure our company this way and provide the ability to repair all vehicles including import and domestic, specializing in imported vehicles.
When you come to check us out, you will have the opportunity to meet the owner and Master Technician, Rolf Pickering, and second Master Technician, Bruce Brockopp, Front Desk, Hollie Pickering and our crazy & friendly pup, Bentley. With that being said, please take a moment to navigate our site and get familiar with us. We have provided the convenience to our customers to now make appointments electronically from our website. Please also check out the testimonials some of our customers have wrote for us and our company for you all to see.
We look forward to meeting you and your vehicle!
