Crowned one of the area's best car washes in 2011 by Gwinnett Magazine, Nexus Auto Detail owes its success to a trustworthy pairing of experienced technicians and quality products from brands such as Meguiar's. Unlike some shops that rely on heavy machinery, the crew at Nexus performs nearly everything by hand in order to avoid putting cars at risk for scratches or other damage. From a swift hand wash to a complete detail, their services ensure pampering for every facet of the vehicular anatomy. Following washes, optional clay treatments gently lift contaminants such as tree sap, metal fragments, dust, and clinging hitchhikers, and headlight restoration helps erase light scratches, yellowing, and oxidation from car eyelids.
While drivers await their roadsters' debuts, they can kick back in comfy seating and sip complimentary coffee as they watch a big-screen TV, surf free WiFi, or peruse magazines in an attempt to beat their personal records for fewest paper cuts in one hour.
At Ultra Car Wash, three minutes is all it takes to rid cars of dirt that may have taken months to amass. Conveyor belts move cars through automated wash tunnels while hearty doses of hot carnauba waxes, tri-foams, and Rain-X protectants lather the exterior and soft cloths wipe grime free. At the end of each wash, customers are privy to free self-serve vacuum stations, which they may use for as long as it takes to rid car interiors of crumbs, dirt, and discarded sandwich crusts. And, for added convenience, these facilities feature self-serve pay stations allowing drivers to pick and pay for a wash package without even leaving their cars.
At Platinum Auto Spa, cars get cleaned, detailed, oiled, and serviced—but their drivers get perks, too. During washes, car wash tunnels work away at grime with Blue Coral Beyond Green products and detailers polish and shampoo exteriors and interiors. While cars get their shines back, drivers can sip on free coffee and tea, surf the Web on Platinum's free Wi-Fi, and quickly find and delete the car-for-sale ads they wrote in a moment of weakness. Platinum Auto Spa’s service department also offers oil changes with Castrol and Mobil 1 motor oils, as well as brake, belt, and filter services.
The soapy staffers at Dunwoody Detailing & Window Tint hand wash and wax vehicles, shining hoods and hubcaps and purging interiors of accumulated grime. The standard wash regales roadsters with a full exterior bath, using elbow grease to free wheels from gobs of chewed bubblegum while adding a coat of shine. After vacuuming the car of its errant debris, scrubbing specialists cleanse console cup holders of slurpee evidence and massage a vinyl-protectant onto aching dashboards. The deluxe wash improves upon the standard wash, supplementing its sudsing with a pure Carnauba hand wax and light hand buff before sapping autos of all tree sap. To make your car feel as though it just lured a lottery winner into its driver's seat with a candy bar, treat it to a deluxe detailing treatment, including everything mentioned for the first two services plus interior panel cleaning and leather seat conditioning.
