With its pitched roof, large windows, and red-brick exterior, Village Detail recalls the image of a quaint suburban home. Inside, cars and trucks purr contentedly as technicians wash exteriors and vacuum interiors. The shop's à la carte services include enzyme odor remover and Rain-X treatments, which repel water more effectively than dipping cars in salad dressing.
All it takes to transform a dirty vehicle into a clean chariot at Acton Car Wash is 120 feet. The facility's modern Belanger car-wash system uses soft cloths and a barrage of foam polishes, sealer waxes, and chassis cleaners to rinse away filth and grime. Regardless of the level of the wash, each visit ends with a staff member meticulously drying the car by wiping it down with a hand towel and using a crazy straw to blow away leftover water droplets.
Eco-friendly, reusable Re-Pac bags protect food, toiletries, and other items within confines that repel mildew and mould. Vibrant colours and patterns add touches of style to their tightly woven nylon liners, zippers, and polyester outsides, which have been rated safe for food by a third-party lab. The sacks range in volume from 7"x4" bags (about the size of a pair of sunglasses) all the way up to a gallon-size bag ideal for carrying toiletries or the world's largest gumdrop.
The company, which was started by a nurse and her mother, manufactures all its bags within the United States. It also backs each product with a lifetime warranty, which guarantees the bags stay safe during countless trips through the washing machine or the interdimensional wormhole in the dishwasher.
Shield System Car Wash's three locations peel off automotive filth with soft cloths before slathering vehicles with shine-enhancing layers of foam, wax, and sealant. The five-minute wash whittles caked exteriors down to the original shape and showroom shine with triple-foam soaps and underbody rinses. Wheel and rim are cleansed with Tire Shine, plucking debris from car's lower extremities before applications of Shield sealant and Shield vivid wax glaze the car shell to give it a smooth, shiny veneer. Finally, doses of Shield ultrashine sealant cling to the finish to defend its sparkling luster against dirt and hitchhiking paparazzi.
Chauffeurs' hands jingle with keys to a fleet of luxury cars, ready to rev them up and hightail across town throughout day and night. Sedans and town cars deliver passengers to locales such as Foxwoods Resort Casino and Logan Airport at any hour, with specialty flight-tracking software to ensure travelers arrive on time. Chauffeurs also tend to a garage full of specialty vehicles, releasing Escalade limos, a 23-passenger trolley, a 1959 Rolls-Royce, and a van with a mural of Woodrow Wilson punching the kaiser painted on the side to lend a festive air to occasions including proms, birthdays, and weddings.
