Delta Sonic Car Wash renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.
Fuller’s attends to the needs of grimy cars and their fresh-scrubbed owners with a wide range of cleaning, detailing, and maintenance services. Four-wheeled recipients of the full-service wash receive interior vacuuming, window cleaning, and towel-drying of the exterior to ensure each car shines as brightly as the day it emerged from its cocoon. Like throwing hot coffee on a coworker, changing your engine’s oil refreshes it and prepares it for a day of hard work, and a tire rotation entertains road donuts with a game of musical chairs in which everyone ends up a winner. With an ultimate protection detail package Fuller’s practiced staff will thoroughly shampoo interiors; bathe and cleanse exteriors with a soft cloth; wax surfaces and restore paint vibrancy; polish and eliminate every offending mote; and sing carols to revive your car’s holiday spirit. For all services, additional charges may apply for trucks, minivans, SUVs, and SUV-sized hamster wheels.
One day in 1946, Bob Fuller returned home from military service to resume civilian life. By the time the sun had set, he was a business owner. The original location of Fuller's Carwash & Detail Centers, which he claimed with a handshake and a hip twist on that day more than 60 years ago, now serves as the flagship shop, the anchor for a business that has branched out to 11 more locations. Seven days a week, washers lavish cars with soap and special treatment, and detailing services help cars to rediscover their showroom shines. Some locations offer lube and auto centers, with staff technicians ready to remedy mechanical problems and translate esoteric owners' manuals, and convenience stores that stock snacks for drivers and fuel to keep their vehicles humming along as happily as The Little Engine That Couldn't, But Still Stayed Optimistic.
For 19 years, Marine-veteran owner Paul Kludac and the car buffs at Detail Kings have harnessed the restorative power of elbow grease during full-service, hands-on car-wash and detailing services. Whether locking in shine with Armor All applications, evicting paint-dulling contaminants with clay service, or hiding minor swirls with carnauba-wax massages, technicians remind outer shells to return to their show-room origins. Kludac personally inspects every one of the tens of thousands of automobiles that leave his facility every year, making sure that the sparkle in each vehicle shows off the staff's meticulous approach. This commitment to car cleaning know-how has earned the shop celebrity clients, including Michael Jordan and the police cars in Public Enemies, starring Johnny Depp.
For more than 25 years, Major League Auto Spa's team of automotive experts has been cleansing carriages inside and out with soft-cloth washes and detailing services. The automated washer gently nudges cars along a track flanked by a gauntlet of soap-laden cloths to deliver cars from their grimy fate and encourage wolf whistles from passing buses. Armed with vacuums and a keen eye for crumbs and stowaway dust bunnies, interior detailing crews lavish upholstery and carpets with equal attentiveness. Cleaners also apply glossy wax finishes by hand and smooth away imperfections with orbital buffing machines as auto owners wait in the Internet-equipped lobby, surfing the web for new stuffed animals to suction to the windows.
VIP Express has been in the business of sparklizing autos since 1968. During each of two 20- to 30-minute detailing sessions, an exterior wash and hand-spray waxing give steel steeds a bodily shine to reflect back the jealous looks of dingy mopeds and besmirched dune buggies. Inside-and-out window polishing invites second-guessing about glass's existence, and scrubbed wheels and rims outfit each car with fancy new footwear. Inside the car, a vacuum picks up finely aged potato-chip crumbs, and shampooed floor mats and conditioned consoles provide a pristine ridescape for lengthy road trips and quick treks to the taxidermist.
