Hesperian 100% Hand Carwash rejects cleaning done by machines in favor of the human touch, which is sensitive enough to meticulously preserve the beauty of automobiles and the health of the environment. A crew of 25 detailers scours every crevice with biodegradeable cleaners and microfiber towels and maintains paint jobs with Clay Magic bars and wax buffed in with a lot of sustainably grown elbow grease. The center earned its Blue Coral Beyond Green certification because of the eco-friendly products and also because it recycles 85% of the water used for cleaning. To facilitate communication between clients and the handy staff, managers Michael and Sean are always onsite.
BumperDoc's shop managers oversee an experienced team of specialists who make it their mission to restore bruised and weathered autos to fine fettle. Bumper repair and dent removal address the damage from small fender benders; full-scale body repair helps vehicles recover after serious accidents or attacks by jilted horses. BumperDoc also treats cars to window tinting, detailing, and paint touchups. To prove their ability to the entire Internet, BumperDoc's staff has filled an online gallery with photos of their car-beautifying efforts.
Expresso Airport Parking takes the hassle out of preflight parking, safely stowing automobiles while their owners are out of town. Partake in complimentary coffee, muffins, and newspaper after half-heartedly promising to send your car a postcard, and board the company shuttle, which whisks travelers to the terminal in about eight minutes. Both the indoor- and valet-parking options include protected parking, and the latter service offers luggage assistance and vehicle retrieval. As an added resource, voyagers can check the Expresso’s current-flight-status page for real-time updates on airline schedules and air-traffic-controller personals.
When you leave San Leandro Arco & Car Wash, you can do so with a clean, fueled-up car. That's because the gas-station franchise has onsite car-wash services. Best of all, in an effort to give services a more personal touch than a car-wash tunnel or a pond, the staff applies the soap by hand.
Outfitted with crisp red shirts and hands well versed in shop talk, SCR Auto Center’s car custodians expertly execute a robust array of automotive services. During each oil change, chariots, like homesick astronauts, gulp down up to 5 quarts of 5W-30 oil and wipe the corners of their mouths with new filters (cartridge filters not included) before a tasting menu of fresh fluids further whet thirsty receptacles. Technicians then rotate tires into a comfortable radius and thoroughly inspect vehicles in search of disrepair and defects. To top off the automotive spa package, exteriors receive a thorough scrub down and a kiss on the cheek, given ever so gently. SCR Auto Center’s waiting area stocks complimentary coffee, refreshments, and Internet, and an early-bird drop-off option accommodates drivers’ busy schedules.
