Tim and Tara Wall's body shop started as a tent inside of a barn, but their business soon outgrew the space and relocated to a modern facility with 12 work bays. Today, technicians partner with insurance companies to complete pinstriping, oil-change, and headlight-restoration services that come with complimentary online estimates. Though not included in this Groupon, for clients whose other car is a boat, TNT can also repair damaged fiberglass and gel coats, and patch up frayed Jolly Roger flags.
Car Lovers Car Wash's locations feature touchless car-wash systems, which douse dirty cars in soap and specially formulated wax. Each automatic wash tunnel is equipped with double foaming cleaners that scrub away grime and prepare vehicles for a glossy finish.
Guided through the mechanical morass by two ASE-certified master technicians, Techne Mechanical services domestic and foreign vehicles from compact to colossal. While the vehicle's vital fluids are being transfused, the technicians play a game of musical tires, rotating them around the car until the music stops and the odd tire out gets relegated to the trunk. The car's brakes are also inspected to ensure they can continue in their deceleration duties. Alternately, Techne Mechanical offers a Class-A state inspection to certify the car is road-worthy, environmentally sensitive, and not actually a set of trash-can lids bolted onto a refrigerator.
Power House Auto's car custodians fuel their auto-washing efforts with gentle hand scrubbings and generous dollops of Meguiar's wax. During the service, which can last a couple hours, human-powered cloths work soapy solutions into vehicles' skin, gently wiping away dirt and washing any rashes caused by accidental exposure to diesel. Technicians evoke glistening smiles from tires and wheels with Armor All applications, then coat the car frame in Meguiar's wax, which dutifully shields it from contaminants and smudges while enhancing the shine. Car owners are welcome to relax in Power House Auto's waiting lounge and listen as their cars sing happily in the bath.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. These technicians learn their car-care talents during stints in Jiffy Lube University, the company's exhaustive training program. During their training, technicians engage with computer-based learning, apply knowledge during on-the-job-training, and pass frequent skills tests to master the art of engine maintenance. Upon graduation, technicians also take the Jiffy Lube Pledge, vowing to service their customers' cars with the same care they would normally reserve for their own vehicles. This extensive curriculum and commitment to customer service is part of what earned the program accolades as an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Training Provider.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s experts perform air conditioning, air filtration, cooling system, electrical, windshield services, and many more. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services and only complete those services after it has been approved by the owner.
Speedee Oil Change first opened its doors more than 30 years ago, right around the time when corner gas stations began trading their garage bays for the wide aisles and refrigerators of a mini mart. With automotive service stations in decline, the first location in Metairie, Louisiana, stepped in to take care of car owners with simple lube jobs and general tune-ups. Speedee expanded to offer a full range of services including working on brakes, power steering, and transmissions, among other things. Locally owned franchises now service roadsters in 20 states, supplying drivers with ASE?certified technicians who pamper vehicles with 17-point oil changes and immunizations against rusty nails.
