With three automatic car-washing bays open 24 hours a day, Autowash @ Stapleton ensures that drivers can find the most convenient time to thoroughly clean their vehicles. These bays?which can accommodate anything from a coupe to a lifted truck?utilize an advanced combination of technology and cleaning products intended to efficiently imbue chassis with the requisite sparkle.
An optic guidance system controls the direction and spacing of the spray nozzles, ensuring that they follow the contours of the vehicle exactly and don't miss a single spot. And though barrages of warm water may do wonders when it comes to dislodging grime, the system also uses detergents and a tri-foam conditioner to provide an even more thorough cleaning while still remaining gentle on the vehicle's finish.
For visitors who would prefer to handle the cleaning themselves, Autowash @ Stapleton also features three self-service bays complete with foam brushes, air shammees, and six different vacuum systems?one of which is capable of adding a vanilla, pina colada, or new-car aroma to the interior. The facility also features two coin-operated, pet-washing stations that allow patrons to shampoo, condition, blow-dry, and de-flea either their dog or their favorite teddy bear.
Automotive Alliance specializes in scratch and dent repair and auto detailing, and the company has been tapped by car dealerships and rental-car companies for its exceptional work. But you don’t need a whole fleet of cars to benefit from its services. The technicians offer paint touchups and repairs for bumpers, windshields, and minor dents for individual car owners looking to enhance their ride’s image or increase its resale value should they decide to sell or trade it for a horse. But damage isn’t the only thing they address: detailers tackle blemishes, stains, and smudges with hand waxes, buffers, and shampoos to reinstate vehicles' glossy showroom look.
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.

4 Seasons Full Service Car Wash & Detail Center abides by a simple idea: if you clean and protect your car, it'll live longer. To that end, they provide a variety of wash and detail services, keeping a close eye on the products they use, knowing the impact they can have on a car's paint job and interior surfaces.

In addition, the center carries 3M window films, which technicians can install to provide car owners more privacy when they're driving or hiding from the haunted marionettes inside their garage.
