Since 1945, Fuller's Carwash, Detail Center & Fast Stop has mollycoddled motor vehicles with a slew of auto services. Founder Bob Fuller's relatives manage each of the auto center's 11 locations, which sprout up every time someone buries a ratchet in fertile soil. Skilled technicians populate the work bays and invite vehicles inside for oil changes, auto repairs, and tire rotations that extend the life of vehicular shoes by encouraging even tread wear. Soft-cloth car washes and meticulous detailing services bolster a car’s resale value and ensure it stays as pristine as the day it was delivered by a factory-assembled stork.
The beach-themed Laguna Auto Spa pampers vehicles wearied after surfing the streets with washing and detailing services. Washes range from exterior wipe downs with soft cloths to comprehensive cleansing from tire to roof-tethered golden retriever. Express services, such as hand waxing, save time by focusing on one component of auto beauty. More in-depth detailing elevates vehicular aesthetics by adding glossy sheens to steel exoskeletons or conditioning and protecting upholstery. Patrons can tune in to a waiting-room TV or flip leisurely through magazines and fern fronds in an airy space decked out in tropical tiki-hut accoutrements.
For 19 years, Marine-veteran owner Paul Kludac and the car buffs at Detail Kings have harnessed the restorative power of elbow grease during full-service, hands-on car-wash and detailing services. Whether locking in shine with Armor All applications, evicting paint-dulling contaminants with clay service, or hiding minor swirls with carnauba-wax massages, technicians remind outer shells to return to their show-room origins. Kludac personally inspects every one of the tens of thousands of automobiles that leave his facility every year, making sure that the sparkle in each vehicle shows off the staff's meticulous approach. This commitment to car cleaning know-how has not only made the shop a Business of the Year finalist by the Downers Grove and Woodridge Chamber of Commerce, but has also earned it celebrity clients, including Michael Jordan and all cars in Public Enemies, starring Johnny Depp.
Delta Sonic Car Wash renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.
For more than 25 years, Major League Auto Spa's team of automotive experts has been cleansing carriages inside and out with soft-cloth washes and detailing services. The automated washer gently nudges cars along a track flanked by a gauntlet of soap-laden cloths to deliver cars from their grimy fate and encourage wolf whistles from passing buses. Armed with vacuums and a keen eye for crumbs and stowaway dust bunnies, interior detailing crews lavish upholstery and carpets with equal attentiveness. Cleaners also apply glossy wax finishes by hand and smooth away imperfections with orbital buffing machines as auto owners wait in the Internet-equipped lobby, surfing the web for new stuffed animals to suction to the windows.
