Beyond the bright pops of blue and red that paint Detailz Auto Spa’s façade, skilled technicians are washing and detailing cars until every inch of them gleams. High-pressure blasts of water start things off, and a slew of special polishes, waxes, and treatments leave each wheel, roof, and leather interior sparkling. VIP programs reward frequent guests with discounts, and with spells that ward off post-car-wash rain showers.
Pro Oil Change's deft technicians bolster automobile performance seven days a week, swapping old lubricants for Valvoline Premium Conventional oil and then administering 21-point inspections. During the 10-minute service, mechanics drain dirty oil and clear clogs of bacon fat from the vehicle, replacing fluids with up to 5 litres of clean Valvoline oil. Techs then top off all liquids and take a 21-point tour of the vehicle's components. During the visual inspection, the eagle-eyed staff tests the lights, assesses the battery, checks tire pressure, and validates wiper blades' capabilities to bat off rain, snow, and wedding rice. Drivers bringing their cars in for oil transfusions may pull up to the drive-thru and sip free coffee inside while their car is being serviced.

With an eye on the environment, The Clean Machine takes to sullied rides with soft-touch technology and eco-friendly shampoos that leave paint gleaming and scratch-free. Technicians enlist carefully calibrated water pressure during the quick, three-minute washes to slough off filth and dried Garfields stuck to the rear window. Foam-Brite products, shines, and glossy waxes complement each wash and reconstruct cars' original showroom shine.
