While cars revel in the sweet, clamoring lullaby of wrenches and hydraulic lifts, motorists can hop on the free local shuttle and ride it to work or to the mall to get their garage-door openers gilded and engraved.
The staff at Vickers Auto Rental and Repair knows that most people don’t have a contingency plan for when their cars break down. So, rather than let their clients fend for themselves when disaster strikes, the team offers short- and long-term car rentals to keep clients rolling until their own wheels are back on the road. This level of customer service epitomizes all of Vickers’ repair services, whether techs are simply aligning wheels or overhauling the transmission. Technicians can fix a range of foreign and domestic makes and models, allowing them to tackle most vehicles that are brought in for repairs or that are left in the lot after the qualifying round of a monster-truck derby.
At Almaden Valley Window Washing, a small, family-run business operating for more than three decades, technicians use only child- and pet-safe cleaning products to oust gunk from homes' interiors and exteriors. Grime fighters free windows of light-blocking filth and relieve gutters of accumulated foliage or broomstick fibers dropped by migrating witches. The handy team can also refurbish houses' insides with home repairs or remodeling. Always attuned to homeowner's satisfaction, the company's landscape architects use meticulous techniques when coiffing hedges, installing gutter protectors, or painting decks with glow-in-the-dark bull's eyes for arriving UFOs.
At Serio's Custom Detailing, a staff of speck-hunting specialists awaits to restore buggy buddies back to their cleaner, shinier, more idealistic selves. The full auto transformation starts with the pampering of all painted surfaces, including a hand wash, chamois dry, clay-bar application, and two coats of polymer sealant wax to grant lasting gleam. Next, daily rigors disappear beneath the benevolent frenzy of a bug and tar treatment, which ferrets out clinging muck from inside each wheel well. Windows are polished inside and out, and doorjambs are rigorously expunged of grime and leftover toast crumbs. Afterward, a squadron of vacuums and sponges is unleashed upon the workday wagon's grimy guts, deep cleansing carpets with hot water, lustrating leather with a conditioner and UV protectant, and purifying trunks with repeated viewings of It's a Wonderful Life.
The experienced techs at AJ Auto Detailing have been revamping rides for 28 years with an array of detailing services. Using ultra-purified water, technicians wash exteriors by hand before slathering painted surfaces with industry-standard polymer sealers and carnauba wax. They also eradicate oxidization, perform complete interior details, and steam clean engines to remove grease, oil, and any carrots lingering from the car's last collision with a produce stand.
For more than 30 years, Precision has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics whet engine appetites with a premium oil change with up to 5 quarts of oil, and then rotate tires to allow for an even distribution of wear and tear while on the road. The automotive pampering lasts about an hour, during which mechanics dispose of all waste and crumbs from half-eaten parking tickets stuck in the engine. Technicians conclude the ride renovation with a brake inspection to ensure effective stopping post-drive-away. After motor coaches have returned to their youthful, showroom condition, drivers can register for online service reminders, never again relying on their car's unreliable telepathy abilities.
