Second to None was born out of its owners' desire to create an environmentally conscious car detailing company. Their service list is totally waterless, as their detailing treatments use specially formulated solutions and technology to maintain their green status. During the basic package, technicians vacuum interiors and hand wash exteriors. The exterior cleaning solution also has UVA and UVB protection to keep paint safe from the damaging effects of the sun, including if the sun suddenly erupts into a supernova, flinging your car out of the Milky Way.
Their window tinting services may add privacy, but Xtreme Tint has been seen in more than 26 national and international media outlets and has serviced famous faces of celebrity athletes and music moguls. Auto services glamourize cars with protective window tint, custom car audio systems, and vehicle wraps or vinyl designs that add favorite corporate logos or such graphics as checkered flags or tribal decals. Auto security systems keep belongings safe and paint protection covers exteriors in a protective film that defends against road debris, shopping carts, and bugs wearing metal armor. While technicians spoil cars, drivers can relax in front of a plasma TV and sip coffee or peruse the collection of auto accessories that includes chrome accessories, grills, and custom license frames with bling.
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 detailers at Car Spoil Spa harness the power of quickness and precision, finishing meticulous hand-wash and detail services within a speedy time frame. Equipped with microfiber towels, they whip vehicle interiors and exteriors into shape using old-fashioned elbow grease and equipment-aided techniques such as clay-bar polishing (for an extra fee) and steam cleaning. Cars can roll in for bath time via the shop’s pickup and drop-off service or welcome a mobile detailing crew (for an extra fee) to their own driveways, parking spaces, or buggy garages.
Lucky Auto Detailing proves its commitment to earth-friendly practices by cleaning carriages with only biodegradable solutions, microfiber towels, and liquid wax. Each wash is waterless, a habit which conserves up to 30 gallons of water per car, or the exact amount needed to save a tree that’s dehydrated from crying. The center collects its services in five treatment packages, which range from a six-step regular wash to a full detail complete with doorjamb cleaning and a conditioning of vinyl or leather seats. And Lucky Auto Detailing doesn’t just cleanse cars, but protects them as well; the center’s sealant service prevents color from fading with a two-step process that shields paint with a copolymer concoction capable of projecting a "wet" finish for up to one year.
