Everything is done by hand at Miami Car Spa, where cars roll into individual stalls for sudsy hand washes, waxes, and interior cleanups. Patrons can choose from four wash styles, each named for a southern Florida hot spot, such as the quick and simple Miami style, which starts with a wash and ends with a spritz of air freshener. At the top of the list is the South Beach style, during which the crew treats paint to a clear-coat protectant before guiding rides to a shaded tent for a full interior cleanup, including shampoo, conditioner, and french braids for the seat belts.
The automotive aestheticians at TintWorld beautify rides with a variety of detailing, window-film, and modification services. Window-tint treatments offer privacy and sun protection, and are available in custom designs such as flames and skulls. Installation services include electronics, alarms, audio and video systems, and spring-loaded ejector seats. The outlet also supplies do-it-yourself detailers with car-care and performance products.
Now in operation for more than 40 years, Sudsy Car Wash & Detailing Center envelops each visiting vehicle in a shower of soapy bubbles. Foam ferries across windows while a polymer-sealant rinse provides protection against the elements. The detail center uses only Meguiar’s quality products to primp paint or fortify the soft folds of leather interiors. Technicians can pore over the whole vehicle with packages or attack auto’s piece by piece, deep cleaning just the vehicle’s seats, carpets, or rims.
Seven days a week, the trained technicians at Ultimate Car Wash & Detail Center usher dirty automobiles through a drive-through wash before manually vacuuming and wiping down their interiors. In addition to these general cleaning treatments, they perform detailing services such as headlight restoration and flux-capacitor calibration.
The trained technicians at Heaven's Touch Auto Detailing expertly de-grime autos with hand-washing and -waxing services. During the 30–60-minute deluxe wash, soft cloths touch down on auto bodies to initiate a spa-like treatment that gently scrubs away dirt, sprays tires with Armor All, vacuums the interior, installs an air freshener, and flosses between cars' grills. Drivers can unwind in a waiting area with a full café, flat-screen televisions, and comfy seating; in addition to streak-free cars, female motorists will drive away from the shop with a complimentary rose from the staff.
Before being dispatched to client driveways, the licensed and insured mobile technicians at Top Shine Automotive Detailing undergo extensive background checks and training, which is regularly updated through recertification in industry advances, new products, and previously undiscovered species of dirt. The all-around sheen shop restores luster to bedraggled rides with meticulous detailing sessions performed with Maguire products. During washes, soapy hands glide over auto exteriors to evict grime, and waxes, buffing, and swirl removal services leave finishes gleaming and more streak-free than a Victorian-era college campus. Inside, detailers root around for and eradicate hidden dirt, cigarette ash, and dust, prolong the life of leather seats with conditioner, and freshen carpets and upholstery with a cleansing shampoo.
