Catching up with Cascade Environmental

We caught up with Mike Nelson, Principle of Cascade Environmental and longtime friend of Squamish Toyota to ask him about his fleet sales purchases and what it means to give back to the environment.

Q: When did you come down to purchase your vehicles from us here at Squamish Toyota?
A: It was June/July 2011
Q: What did you buy? 
A: Cascade Environmental leased a 4 Runner, and three Tacomas, our general Squamish Toyota chat's with Cascade Environmental in Whistler about their Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Matrix and Tundramanger also purchased a Matrix.
Q: What brought you to Squamish Toyota?
A: We wanted the reliability of Toyota and hoped to deal with a local outlet. Also, I’ve known Mark [Squamish Toyota’s dealer principle] and Gail for something like 40 years (but who’s counting)!
Q: Wow, that’s amazing! So who did you deal with when you came to look at vehicles?
A: Primarily Mark [Lightheart] for the vehicle selection but also Blake, and Flemming for the lease paperwork. It was painless, what can I say, it’s not supposed to be an ordeal.
Q: So, was there anything special about your purchase experience?
A: This was just after the tsunami in Japan, and there were a few supply nisus, but Mark and his team managed to get the vehicles we wanted.
Squamish Toyota chat's with Cascade Environmental in Whistler about their Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Matrix and TundraQ: That must have been quite an emotional time to buy. In the end, are you pleased with your vehicles and service? 
A: You bet, probably the best thing we can say, is that you don’t even think about them, they are just reliable. Brad in Squamish Toyota’s service dept. always has our vehicles ready to go on time, and manges to squeeze us in when I’m in a pinch.
Thanks for your time Mike! We’ll see you out on the road to adventure…
