If you just need it ripped down the middle for two 2x8 sheets, have them do it with a panel saw at the hardware store.
You can do it with a circular saw, but to get it straight, you'd need a guide/fence and it would be a pain in the ass to get them exactly even, especially if you aren't used to doing this. Even if they weren't even, you could just turn them so the factory edges are facing out into the garage and the cut edges are back against the wall. Or you could take the extra step of trimming the cut edges once both pieces are glued together.
But yeah, in general, get a damn circular saw...
