The glass-fixing feats of two of Windshield Repair Specialists' technicians have earned them status as National Windshield Repair Association Olympic medalists. But the entire staff, which holds more than 70 years of collective experience, is not far behind, having equipped more than 35,000 cars with sturdy, unblemished glass. Using only glass and adhesives that meet federal standards, the skilled techs stabilize small chips before they can grow into full-blown cracks and swap cracked windshields for clear panes that grant an unobstructed view of the road. To prevent issues in the first place, they also provide preventative measures: Superior Shield treatments armor glass against airborne debris with an advanced protective coating, and tint films protect car and building windows from spitballs flung by passing suns. Windshield Repair Specialists guarantees their products and labor for as long as the customer possesses their car.

Commercial Tire sports multiple staffs of ASE-certified auto experts that keep vehicles in road-worthy condition through a variety of automotive services. Keep air in comfortable circulation with the air-conditioning tune-up, which preps A/C units for hot weather by making sure they blow air as cool as an igloo stocked with Ray-Bans. Cars that pull too much to one side can best benefit from the four-wheel alignment, which straightens out rides for vehicles with adjustable rear suspension. During the alignment, Commercial Tire's specialists take precise angle readings at all four wheels, calibrating the true and parallel position of a car's asphalt-kissing cylinders. They then set each car's rear thrust line to manufacturer specifications and center the steering wheel, leaving you free to drive home on a straight path without getting trapped in an endless circle inside a cul-de-sac.
