Wet Willy's Car Wash whips vehicles into sparkling shape thanks to advanced, touchless laser equipment that dispenses EPA-certified soaps and cleaning products. Drivers pilot their autos into the car-wash bay, where an underbody flush can expunge dirt and rebellious tattoos from metallic tummies. A double pass of hot-foaming presoak solution helps loosen up stubborn grime, after which a laser wash, spot-free rinse, and laser dry imbue auto exoskeletons with a like-new shine. Drivers can also opt for add-on services such as the application of Lustra triple-foaming polish and total-surface gloss.
Park Ride & Fly USA's car caretakers protect vacationing cars within 24-hour, well-lit parking lots near airports in more than 30 states. After dropping off their automobiles, customers can transport themselves and their luggage to the airport aboard one of the company’s complimentary shuttles or human-size hamster balls. While away, patrons rest easy knowing that their steel steeds are safe within fenced lots that are monitored by 24-hour surveillance. At many locations, shuttles also swing by the terminal to pick up returning travelers and reunite them with their respective vehicles, which are first freed of cloud-based artillery, including snow or recently rained molasses.
Helmed by husband-and-wife duo Richard and Sandra Hameroff, Broadway Auto Clinic tends to the mechanical and aesthetic needs of vehicles foreign and domestic. As visitors relax in the lobby with a show on the flat-screen TV or a magazine, formally trained technicians employ sophisticated equipment to tune up and repair cars, with same-day service in most cases. High-powered automated car washes flush out undercarriages and protect precious paint jobs with pressurized jets of water and applications of triple-foam polish wax. Specialized dog-wash stations ensure that pets are clean enough to drive your clean car home. Two dedicated courtesy shuttles ferry passengers to and from downtown Albany and other important locations Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Supersonic Car Wash's automatic tunnels and attentive technicians expunge automotive dirt on the inside and out. During each Superwash package, tri-foams exterminate outer filth and seal in escape-minded shine with clear coat wax. After polishing wheels and cleaning tires, techs vacuum the cabin, wash the windows, dust the dash, and decimate gunk civilizations growing in the cup holders. The three-to-four-hour interior and exterior detail kicks off with a full-service wash and wheel clean. As techs restore sheen to the outside façade, staffers spread healthy gobs of shampoo across the carpets, seats, and mats in order to bully out spills and erase evidence of the carpool’s last pie-eating contest. Details conclude with an interior tidying, as techs spruce up surfaces and plastics and outfit panels in conditioners.
