Tactical Assistance's licensed chauffeurs escort passengers from celebrity clientele to prom partygoers wherever they desire in the largest-capacity H2 Hummer limousine available. The 30-person limo regales its passengers with a 55-inch high-definition television with full 3,000-watt surround sound, as well as a fog machine to enshroud a dance floor with two dance poles. Guests can also compete online on an in-vehicle Xbox with constant WiFi connection. Staff scrubs the eye-catching vehicle between rides, so no champagne chutes, Armani suits, or completely trashed bounce houses are left over after a night on the town.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change package, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Abi Goldberg wanted to open her own spa to honor her entrepreneurial father's memory after he passed away. In 2012, Abi used her family's business instincts to rebrand her salon. Chroma Salon Spa Boutique, formerly La Chique, now features industrial chic decor with aqua-colored accents for a more modern, serene setting. Clients can still count on pampering Image Skincare facials and customized cuts, as well as wine and beer to sip or pour out in respect for recently lost locks. Abi also maintains the boutique's stock of handcrafted jewelry and accessories she personally selects from expos in New York and Atlanta.
Cars emerge from Carolina Springs AutoSpa Detail Shop sparkling clean and well oiled. At both locations, cars traverse wash tunnels where soaps, wheel cleaners, and triple-polish applications remove surface dirt and restore shine to the paint and chrome. The staff at the Cornelius location tackles more severe forms of dirtying with carpet steaming, engine cleaning, and high-speed buffing, and the staff at the University location offers oil changes and basic maintenance services.
Staffed by National Windshield Repair Association technicians, TNT Glass & Tint restores scathed windshields with their lifetime-guaranteed glass-repair services. The crew welcome vehicles into their garages in Mooresville, Concord, and Denver to dole out free estimates, patch up small chips and cracks, and replace entire windows and windshields. They also travel directly to driveways for vehicles that, like a teenage girl after a breakup, are too damaged to move. The center also tints windows in a variety of shades with scratch-resistant coating, helping to reduce eye strain while driving and blocking 99% of UV rays, protecting clients' skin and the interior of their cars from harmful sun damage.
The Fowler family has presided over the Modern group for four generations, overseeing an exhaustive collection of new, used, and certified preowned vehicles.

As an added convenience to its customers, Modern Nissan offers online scheduling for service appointments, as well as rentals that satisfy your craving for new-car smell.
