The technicians at Blessings Hand Car Wash rediscover lost luster on rundown cars and SUVs with attentive grooming. During each full-service wash, agile hands comb across the outer shell, lather soaps onto the façade, and remove novelty wax lips from the grill. After a soft towel dry brings cars to an arid glow, vacuums scout the interior in search of loose debris, and towels scrub the window glass clean from both the inside and the outside. A dashboard wipe down sanitizes the front panels, and applications of tire shine leave wheels looking as fresh as they did at their first birthday party. During midwash minutes, customers may peruse the gift shop and surf through more than 100 DirecTV channels in the customer lounge, giving cars plenty of time to kick back and gossip with one other about lousy parallel parkers.
Becker Tire and Service Center's ASE-certified technicians tighten lug nuts and tune engines inside three full-service garages stocked with premium tire brands including Michelin, Bridgestone, and Hankook. Cars find the perfect swing for their tree house with the garage's tire-size finder and masterful installations ensure safe spins with available nitrogen fills, rotations, and computer spin balancing. The mechanics' seemingly infinite knowledge reaches under hoods for lubrication and electrical services and below the chassis for steering, axle, and suspension work. For more serious repairs, Becker Tire offers a convenient shuttle transport, multivehicle fleet repairs, and service for your fleet of multiple shuttles.
Though he's been in the detailing game since 1981, Transhine Auto Detailing's Bill DeBever has continuously invested in technologies and training that has kept his business on the cutting edge of industry innovations, and this dedication caught the attention of Drive! magazine in 2009. The energy he and his staff have put in to protecting vehicles from daily wear and tear—as well as nature's arbitrary attacks—earned Transhine Best of Whittier awards from the U.S. Commerce Association in 2010 and 2011. When they aren't defending autos from rogue gravel chunks and the sun's aggressive paparazzi photons with 3M paint-protection film and window tint, Bill and his staff detail vehicles, steam-clean engines, remove dents, and polish careworn headlights.
The skilled technicians at Beach Cities Paintless Dent Removal restore dented car surfaces to their original appearance without the use of paints or fillers. During the one-hour service, an experienced staffer approaches the backside of the damaged metal panel with a suite of specialized tools, implementing deft hand-eye coordination to undo dents caused by car doors, maverick shopping carts, or gravel trucks with allergies. In return for this Groupon, Beach Cities' technicians will deal with dings as big as a baseball, or a football if it's on the bumper; larger dents will require extra paper money.
Hand washes with puffs of lamb's wool begin each detailing service at Rhino Custom Detailing. These services span from mini details to a signature package with orbital polishes and hand-applied polysealant and carnauba wax. Staffers also throw elbow grease into à la carte services such as convertible-top cleaning, headlight restoration, and removal of faded “I Like Ike” decals. Drivers can wait for their rides at the shop or hitch a complimentary ride (available with packages that cost $40+) to the location of their choice within Huntington Beach.
