The hard-working car washers at Staten Island Auto Bath restore glowing complexions to autos while protecting tires and paint from damage. Using high-pressure machines, they evict grime from jalopies and add protective coats of wax, tire-shielding treatments, and a thick pair of long underwear to restore showroom shines. Air compressors dry all visiting vehicles, which roll in and out from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday–Saturday, closing at 4:30 p.m. on Sundays.
ZP Auto Repair keeps wheels on the road and minds off the wheels with comprehensive care packages for any type of vehicle. A quick 30-minute oil change keeps cars hydrated and lubricated with a replacement of the oil and oil filter for standard vehicles (an extra fee applies for luxury and nonstandard vehicles, which will receive a $42 credit toward any oil change). Knowledgeable technicians also inspect and top off fluids as needed, and rotate and inspect tires to preserve the treads on automotive sneakers.
Having left the corporate world to pursue his automotive passions more than 20 years ago, owner Uri Shemelzman and his attentive staff at Classic Seville Car Wash devote their time to full-service cleanings at the auto center's half-acre complex. Within the indoor car-wash facility, biodegradable products scour rides during hand washes or 5- to 7-minute automated car washes that drivers can cheer on from behind glass windows. During interior and exterior detailing sessions, the crew makes over vehicles with leather varnish and waxes until autos are confident enough to merge onto fashion runways. Classic Seville Car Wash lathers cars, motorcycles, trucks, and RVs seven days a week.
