With more than four decades of business stuffed under its hood, House of Mufflers & Brakes keeps rides on the road with an arsenal of automotive services.

Locally owned and community oriented, Mills Squeegee Fill Stations provide top-notch automotive service in a clean and friendly environment. Lavish a four-wheeled life love with an Ultimate car wash ($10), or cover the basics with an Express wash ($5), which leaves plenty of time to pick up a slice of pizza ($1.99) along with a 32-ounce fountain drink ($1.09). Alternatively, 12-ounce coffee refills send drowsiness packing ($0.89), and donuts propose to sweet teeth, presenting their chocolate rings as a token of their everlasting devotion ($0.91). Car washes only take about five minutes, so shiny street wanderers can get back on the road in the blink of a headlight.
Finishing Touch Car Wash and Detail tends to automotive needs with a full suite of car-care services, building a reputation as a full-service detailing studio, repair facility, and car wash.

Custom cleaning is the modus operandi at Top Dollar Detail. Keeping this in mind, the skilled staff surveys vehicle surfaces and responds accordingly while performing interior, exterior, and full-auto details.

U-Stop Convenience Stores' basic wash gives the most mobile member of the family a thorough scrub down and radiant luster. Each car wash is self-serve and drive-thru, marrying the convenience of a fast-food restaurant with the joys of swimming laps inside laundromat machines. The deal is doled out in the form of a $25 car-wash card, which can be used toward five basic washes or any combination of washes and optional upgrades.
