Whether it's changing oil and inspecting brakes or concealing a minor bumper scratch and eradicating rust or dents, The Paint Shop's facility in Rochester offers both repairs and cosmetic services for autos. On the repair side, mechanics and collision experts offer a range of services to make your car run better and last longer. For those looking to soup up their car's exterior, they can get cars washed and detailed, or pass through the Nova-Ventra paint booth, where certified technicians help customers match paint colors during free estimates. Then, the authorized PPG paint center uses environmentally-friendly water-based paints to complete a wide array of projects.
Cars naturally acquire a few dents and dings in their lifetimes. To alleviate the hassle of bringing cars to the shop for every minor problem, the technicians at Perfection Auto Detailing instead travel to wherever the owners have parked. They perform a full suite of detailing and maintenance services, bringing all the electricity, water, and pavement they need. They polish out dings, repair headlights, and apply permanent coats of resin to give paint lasting new-car shine.
When David C. Magee and Robert W. August founded LaserWash TouchFree CarWash in 2003, they brought a collective 60 years of corporate experience. David helms the company, and Robert draws on the knowledge he gleaned during his time as the senior vice president of Monro Muffler, making them a veritable Jordan-Pippen combo, though shoe stores might not carry their signature kicks, which would be grease-splattered boots.
At their 13 LaserWash locations, the duo offers car-wash packages facilitated by an automatic LaserWash G5 process. As roadsters progress through a wide bay free of tracks to follow, a series of large signs directs drivers through each step. The LaserWash adjusts its size to fit vehicles up to 7 feet tall by way of ultrasonic and infrared sensors. It also uses less water and electricity than typical car-wash equipment, along with pH-balanced and biodegradable soaps and waxes. After the undercarriage wash removes salt, sand, and damaging contaminants from car bellies, the triple foam polishes paint jobs and the clear-coat protectant shields autos from acid rain, UV rays, and icy glances. Once exteriors are clean, coin-operated vacuums, shampooers, and fragrance misters await car owners, who can scour their car interiors until they sparkle both inside and out.
A nearly 65-year-old institution passed from father to son, Pierce Automotive gives domestic and import vehicles life-extending tune-ups and quick repairs. Proprietor Brian Pierce has worked the floors of Pierce Automotive since boyhood, developing car-repairing expertise and the ability to understand the clicking, wheezing language of carburetors. During oil changes, skilled technicians replace the vehicle’s vital lubricant, extending engine life by reducing wear and friction and boosting mileage. A tire service with rotation, balance, and mount ensures even distribution of weight across wheels, improving driving comfort, steering, and safety. A battery recharge, which includes a tune-up, change, terminal cleaning, and insulator installation, jolts somnambulant cars awake faster than a liter of mocha latte poured straight into the gas tank.
The family of ride primpers at Evergreen Car Wash has been meticulously returning messy motor vehicles to long-lasting luminescence for more than 15 years. The ultimate wash slathers on two kinds of soap during a soft-cloth machine wash: one to clean and shine the exterior glass and chrome, and another to gently remove tough soil and pollutants from the paint. While they are in the tunnel, cars' tires and rims get de-gunked and shined before their bodies are polished to a colorful glow with red, yellow, and blue wax. A rust-inhibiting flush tickles soft underbellies to protect the most tender cuts of auto meat, and an application of clear-coat protectant works to inhibit gunkification caused by salt, dust, dirt, and rain.
Auto Finishers Supply Co. owner Richard Trovato deals in more than just auto parts and accessories. He's also dedicated to customer service. Richard began working at the shop as an entry-level employee in 1969, then worked his way up to store manager in 1972. By 1986, he was the storeowner. Since he took the reins, Richard has instilled dedication to customers into every aspect of the business, from stocking quality car accessories, such as DuPont paints and Avital car systems, to employing ASE-certified technicians. Today, Richard and his children still run the shops' day-to-day operations, helping customers find car accessories from crystal clear stereos that house video screens to remote car starters that negate the need for car owners to politely ask it to start.
Founders Ben and Jackie Thompson knew exactly what to do with their passion for automobiles and 20 years of retail and service experience: open up a comprehensive car care and motoring facility that focuses on superior customer service. The Grease Lightning brand has since expanded to include franchises under the Castrol Premium Lube Express name, each location servicing autos with a friendly and highly trained staff. They specialize in tire and maintenance service, performing repairs such as rotations, oil changes, and battery replacement with products from reputable brands including Goodyear tires, Interstate batteries, and Castrol, Pennzoil, and Havoline lubricants. In addition to keeping cars as clean and pristine as they day they were plucked from the ground with full detail services, the Grease Lightning staff can even help clients replace a hopelessly soiled vehicle entirely through car and motorcycle sales
