Touch of Class has chauffeured carbon-based lifeforms for more than 20 years and was ranked one of the best limousine services this year by Fresno Magazine. Summon a glamorous land-ferry with room enough for you and seven body doubles, then chart a course to anywhere in Fresno, Clovis, or Madera. Arrive in style at your favorite downtown club or Dungeons & Dragons session in a Lincoln Town Car or Cadillac DTS Super-Stretch limo. Both come equipped with wraparound leather seats, as well as a flat-panel TV and sound system to show your parents' wedding videos on. Ride for three hours or combine two Groupons to meet the limousine company's next mininimum of six hours. Buyers must pay a 15% gratuity out of pocket.
Prime Shine greets ragged road-huggers with a precursory prewash before leading them into an all-cloth cleaning stable where experienced technicians tenderly groom horseless buggies. A nonacidic wash works to dispense with gunk and grime from all auto parts, from besmirched bumpers to unclean underbellies. Next, motor wagons are sprayed with a cleansing, perfumed polish, then coated in an invisible shield of silicone to seal in a glossy luster. Rain-X protectant bonds to every inch of exterior to make cars impervious to water, bugs, and bug-shaped water balloons. Finally, after a 120-horsepower blow dry, mechanical beasts are ready to shake manes and roar away. The Protex car wash takes only about three minutes from start to finish, and customers can use self-service vacuums to put any finishing touches on rejuvenated rides.
The tidy crew at Shield Savers revamps vehicles with interior and exterior detailing and precision windshield repair. During the 45-minute deterging, detailers swiftly scrub vehicular exoskeletons, sealing in shine with a protective wax. A headlight restoration brightens beams, and nicked windshields regain 20/20 vision after technicians mend surface chips (additional chip repair $10). Shield Savers also spot-cleans dashboards and vacuums mats and seats, coating leather and vinyl with a protective treatment to fend off dirt.
Specialists at Tirexperts' network of independent tire dealers fit customers’ cars with durable treads from brands such as Dunlop, Kumho, and Summit. Oil changes and other maintenance services help to lengthen engines' life spans, and shock and strut maintenance can help enhance steering response, stability, and smoothness on bumpy rides atop roads paved in lychee fruit.
The buggy bathers at Super Shine Hand Car Wash treat every ride to an attentive and quality cleansing. The Diamond package cuts cars to full clarity in nine thorough steps. Two gentle hand washes caress weather-beaten exteriors; then a tandem attack of high-speed forced air blowers and a towel rinses and dries to prevent spotting. Super Shine's car whisperers vacuum interiors, clean carpets and mats, make windows spotless, and dust dashboards, eliminating all evidence of midnight fast-food runs by the pet cat.
