Carsmetology's techs reactivate the faded glow of cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans with detailing services enhanced by Meguiar's carnauba wax. The experienced technicians burrow into every crevice with scrubbers and vacuums, taking four to five hours to administer the complete exterior and interior detailing. For those with less time to spare, they also execute express detailing services. They efficiently lather carpets with shampoos, condition leather surfaces, wipe down windows, and free seats from dirty stains or beaded covers that have started to fossilize. Additionally, they can detail boats and RVs, acid washing exteriors and pressure-washing carpets.

As Ann Arbor's largest independent automotive servicing facility, arborMotion cleanses vehicles at its Attention 2 Detail center, tending to cars, trucks, and SUVs alike. Here, Detail Manager Martin Lunceford dusts off autos from the inside out, treating them to an interior and exterior detail. The facility's deluxe detail package begins with a dashboard and center console scrubbing, followed by a full vacuum of carpeting and seats, purging fuzz, French fries, and snow globes. Cars' pelts and mats undergo a steamy cleansing and shampooing, before door jambs are deloused and interior door panels are de-grimed. Following each interior scrub down, Attention 2 Detail shines exteriors with a hand-wash and one-step hand wax. Windows become sparkly, and tire rims are cleaned and dressed like a British boy whose mum caught him playing with chocolate syrup behind the mulberry bush. Wheel well and bug-off treatments remove gnats and mosquitoes.

At Mill Creek Sport Center's six-lane indoor handgun range, guests practice their shooting skills by firing rental pistols. The center's other services, however, encourage patrons to revel in the outdoors. During winter, personnel sell parts and services for numerous makes and models of snowmobiles, as well as snow plows from Western and Meyer, which are kept in stock year-round just in case snowmen become immune to temperature change. When the snow thaws, Mill Creek's staff pair customers with jet skis and pontoon boats to take out on aquatic adventures along with an extensive stock of fishing tackle and live bait.
