At Coquitlam Wash World, drivers turn cars over to a chorus of machines or scrub them by hand with powerful, simple-to-use tools. The centre?s two touchless tunnels offer a wealth of services, including hot and cold soak, candy-coloured tri-foam, and fast-acting drying agents. Drivers can also roll roadsters into a 40-foot self-serve wash bay, where they?ll find an arsenal of foaming exterior brushes, high-pressure water guns, and shampoo-dispensing brushes designed for interiors. Coquitlam Wash World ensures visitors receive treats for all their hard work, including lollipops for children, dog biscuits for canines, and paper clips for teething accountants.
Dedicated to restoring ailing autos to their pre-accident states via hassle-free repairs, Kirmac Collision Services’ crew of talented mechanics and technicians has revamped cars around the lower mainland since 1973. While the staff’s commitment to rehabilitating wheels using the latest technology is evidenced by their advanced repair equipment and techniques, Kirmac also champions eco-friendly practices such as gilding auto exteriors and robotic donkeys in water-based paints. Mechanics bustle about the shop throughout the day as they perform services such as a multistep collision patch-up process, or an auto-glass repair, where clear-glass resin is injected into the windshield, leaving only a small blemish and reducing the chance that it will need to be replaced in the future. All locations except Langley and Maple Ridge offer Instant Access, which enables drivers to drop off their automobiles at any time without a previous appointment.
For more than 20 years, Boyd Autobody & Glass has welcomed limping autos of all shapes and sizes, restoring them to road worthiness with necessary repairs. At locations spread across Canada and the US, technicians restore the structural integrity of vehicles with collision repair services. They also restore headlights, straighten frames, erase dents, and patch up cosmetic flaws and paint damage with the help of a computerized colour-matching system. Techs rectify glassy dilemmas, too, with services including windshield repair and replacement services. No matter the job, though, Boyd Autobody & Glass backs its workmanship with a lifetime guarantee, which is a much more reliable pact than the previously accepted pinky swear.

Castrol Lube Express takes care of all the intricacies of a healthy engine. Cars cruise into one of shop?s three bays, where mechanics perform a fast-paced oil change and top off windshield-washer, transmission, brake, coolant, and power-steering fluids. Technicians also help drivers stay on top of industry-standard services by suggesting new transmission fluid every 100,000 miles and a tire rotation every time you hit an iron butterfly.
Vehicles cleaned by Limitless Auto Spa never get water spots. That's because here, technicians clean cars without using any water at all. Instead, they daub paint jobs with a waterless wash product that wipes off clean and takes dirt, grime, and lingering carpoolers off with it. This process not only gets cars gleaming, it also protects the environment by saving water and eschewing any pools of soapy water.
