At Coquitlam Wash World, drivers turn cars over to a chorus of machines or scrub them by hand with powerful, simple-to-use tools. The centre’s two touchless tunnels offer a wealth of services, including hot and cold soak, candy-coloured tri-foam, and fast-acting drying agents. Drivers can also roll roadsters into a 40-foot self-serve wash bay, where they’ll find an arsenal of foaming exterior brushes, high-pressure water guns, and shampoo-dispensing brushes designed for interiors. Coquitlam Wash World ensures visitors receive treats for all their hard work, including lollipops for children, dog biscuits for canines, and paper clips for teething accountants.
Fred Beck opened Broco Auto Glass's work bays in Surrey in 1978 and, with help from his brother Merle, installed up to 18 windshields per day. Their hard work would pay off—setting the blueprint for the 20 locations Broco has today—helping the sibling team branch off into residential and commercial glass services in addition to automotive glass services. Broco's government-certified auto-glass technicians specialize in foreign and domestic cars, trucks, and boats, and they undergo training every three months to stay abreast of the latest techniques for installing their selection of OEM or equally certified parts. Away from the shop, they equip homes and businesses with interior and exterior glass panes for an array of jobs, such as custom-crafting a glass door or installing a skylight that makes it possible to cast disparaging looks at the sun without leaving your home.

Using nontoxic cleaners and high-powered equipment, The Clean Machine's insured and trained crews whisk over carpets, tile, grout, upholstery, and air ducts. The specialists steer truck-mounted gear, scavenging carpets for eons of dirt, grime, and lost, shrunken family members. Hardwood floors are returned to an effervescent shine with the use of powerful scrubbing, and auto interiors, ducts, and upholstery once besieged by dust can again breathe easily after intense cleaning. Additionally, the crew employs a house-crafted brand of spot remover to target especially tough stains.
