At seven locations throughout Boston, the technicians at Mr. Perfection Inc thoroughly clean vehicles inside and out with a variety of detailing packages. In addition to hand-washing services, clay-bar treatments, and steam-cleaning carpets, seasoned car-care experts can remove dings or dents, replace windshields, or tint windows to conceal foreign royalty longing for life among the common folk.
It only makes sense that the auto detailers at Car Care are as mobile as the vehicles that they work on. Stocked with cleaning gear, their service vans travel around the Boston area before stopping at offices and homes. There, the detailers wash car exteriors by hand and venture inside to sweep, scrub, and condition all surfaces, including leather seats and miniature dance floors. Alternatively, the team also works out of four service locations. At these brick-and-mortar spots, the team replaces windshields, removes scratches, and executes all manner of auto body repair.
ZLooks' fully equipped mobile unit facilitates detail packages from the comfort of the customer's driveway, office, or parking spot, unleashing a waterless wave of eco-friendly products that leave no toxic residue. During the two-hour premium detail, the meticulous technicians clean and polish the car to a luster, dress the tires, and drag dirt out of the interior with a vacuum. After boosting tire pressure to the manufacturer's specifications, the car tenders clean film from the windows, scrub grime from the door panels, and apply vinyl protectors to the dash and trim. The four-hour extreme package builds on the premium treatment with leather-cleaning conditioners, fabric protectants, and spot shampoos across the carpet mats. Then, techs reach into doorjambs and trunks to remove gunk, infiltrate gas-cap compartments with towels, and pluck bug carcasses from the car's outer parts before concluding the service by coating the frame in a natural finish, which protects the paint from losing its radiant luster.
With each cleaning, Bubbles Car Wash’s staff strives to leave cars thoroughly polished and shining. Customers choose a Single, Double, or Triple Bubble wash, with options that range from a basic bath and towel dry to a luxurious scrub that involves triple-foam polish and protective coats of Teflon. The auto experts and two-time finalists for CityVoter's Best Car Wash in 2011 and 2012 also venture into interiors during auto detailings, which evict grime and stains from seats and mats, and focus on their motto, "We don't sell car washes, we sell services." As car owners wait, they can surf the web on free WiFi.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
