Nada Limo’s cavalry of limos, signature limited Lincoln Town Cars, and Toyota Prius hybrids escort passengers around the city in style and comfort. Courteous and professional drivers helm the wheel while passengers relax in the spacious backseats as they make their way to the airport, a 49ers game, or opening night at the latest black-tie sports bar. The company also lends its luxury transports for tours of San Francisco’s historical landmarks and neighborhoods.
Precision Body Shop & Detail’s trained technicians rejuvenate cars from bumper to bumper with repair and detail treatments. Detailing crews hand wash and wax exterior surfaces, removing contaminants and overspray with a clay-bar treatment. They spruce up interiors with swift vacuuming and wipe downs, or dispense deep-cleans with carpet-extraction cleaning and seat shampooing. In the auto-body shop, certified technicians mend or replace busted windshields, and remove dents caused by accidents, shopping carts, and revengeful exes. During lengthy services, drivers can take advantage of the shop’s free shuttle, which runs through the San Rafael or Colma Daly City areas. Additionally, each of Precision Body Shop & Detail's auto-body repairs come with a complimentary detail and a lifetime limited warranty for as long as the customer owns or pays alimony to the car.
Whenever pedestrians get tired of hoofing it, Yellow Cab sidles up curbside to give them a ride. After a quick phone call, Yellow Cab ferries passengers throughout Marin County, and even trundles guests out to San Francisco International, Oakland International, and San Jose International airports. Unlike unpredictable cab companies that might pick up passengers in a Crown Victoria or a rolling suitcase hitched to a Vespa, Yellow Cab’s fleet of dependably quality vehicles includes models as diverse as the Lincoln Towncar, Toyota Prius, and Dodge Caravan.
The Diamond Certified lube shop—which opened its work bays in 1987 and still employs techs who have been there for more than 20 years—houses bottles of Pennzoil Conventional ready for use during 10-minute engine injections. If desired, drivers can upgrade to synthetic oil for an additional charge.
Motivated by a simple, straightforward agenda, the technicians at Auto Smog & Oil Changers are on a mission to minimize vehicular pollution. During service appointments, they examine vehicles for smog-producing emissions, helping owners determine whether their cars are meeting state standards. Their work is part of a smog-control program that helps the state prevent as much as 100 tons of smog-forming emissions from entering the air every day. And when not analyzing hood or tailpipe fumes, the techs keep vehicles running smoothly with regular oil changes, since well-lubricated engines produce fewer harmful gases and fewer requests to move to Florida for the winter.
Awarded a 2009 Autochex Customer Satisfaction Premier Achiever Award for excellent customer service, the certified technicians at Daland Body Shop cheerfully deploy their extensive training to rejuvenate battered auto bodies. When chemicals and debris from the road combine with natural forces such as acid rain, insects, and Zeus's fiery belches, they not only can damage paint but can also mar headlight lenses. Dexterous hands repair scratches and discoloration that inhibit light beams from blazing paths through night and storm, enhancing the aesthetics and value of the existing parts rather than discarding and replacing them. Silver detailing packages begin with an overall wash and a high-pressure spray down of gunky door jambs, topped by a glossy coat of protective wax made from immortal candles. Doors fling open to welcome in voracious vacuums and damp towels that devour snack particles, grit, and dust from both cabin and trunk, then the detail team polishes windows inside and out and dresses tires to improve their hard life on the road.
Fittingly for auto detailers, the team at Mr. EcoWash pays attention to even the smallest detail. Before beginning any soft-cloth wash, they first rinse the car to wash away the tiny debris of surface grit—a step that, if skipped, would leave scratches in the clear coat. Following eco-friendly practices that conserve up to 10 gallons of water with each wash, the technicians also carry out interior and exterior detailing services that include engine cleaning and tar removal. Rather than sitting idle as they wait for their vehicles, patrons can either drop them off or commission Mr. EcoWash’s mobile services to come to their home, office, or timeshare teetering over a cliff.
