The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change package, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Situated within the elegant DoubleTree Hotel, The Orchards Restaurant serves upscale American dishes to world travelers and Charlotte locals alike. Service kicks off in the early hours of the morning, when chefs begin whipping up three-egg omelets, belgian waffles, and country-fried steaks. As the day progresses, the chefs turn their attention to juicy burgers, crispy sandwiches, and fresh seafood specialties.
A bad window-tinting job can mean bubbles, cracks, and purple hues. So each professional installer at Sun Stoppers Window Tinting is required to have at least five years of experience. To set their customers’ minds even more at ease, technicians back up their services with a lifetime performance warranty. Their window tinting keeps interiors from overheating, shields passengers from UV rays, and adds an attractive aesthetic to exteriors. Reduced glare helps drivers stay safe, and if an accident happens, the tinting holds shattered glass in place.
The technicians can also shield paint jobs from weather, rogue pebbles, and bugs with 3M paint-protection film. Beyond automotive services, the technicians also tint residential windows and install solar screen shades to protect furnishings from the damaging effects of the ball of fire that grants us life.
Rodrick Walker brings car-sprucing services to the customer with Quick Finish Supreme Auto Detailing. They've been in action for more than 19 years. That experience has led to developing an eight-step waxing and polishing process that gives paint jobs mirror-like shines. To ensure quality jobs, they only use quality products such as carnauba wax and Teflon paint sealants that shield coats from corrosion and oxidation. Interiors receive equally detailed attention with steam cleaning that kills 99.99% of bacteria and mold while refreshing carpets and upholstery.
The details at Clear Water Auto Spa serve two purposes: remove past blemishes and prevent future damage. The former is accomplished by hand scrubbing the exterior, shampooing the seats, and vacuuming windshield dice off the floors. Once the car is clean, the technicians take it a step further by applying Teflon wax and clear-coat sealant to the finish and Scotchgard to the interior to build a protective layer against future contaminants. Paintless dent removal and paint touchups further elevate cars’ resale value and cosmetic appeal.
Timeout Mobile Detailing Plus dispatches cleaning crews across Charlotte to spruce up rides inside and out.

Timeout works by appointment, and travels throughout Charlotte and the surrounding area, including Lake Norman, Mooresville, Concord, and Lake Wylie.
