The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil-change package, which promotes 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 prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians’ 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.
Tyre Track Automotive Center's six-bay garage bustles with ASE-certified technicians rescuing ailing rides, shuttles running to and from local college campuses, and owner Tim Andrew amicably assisting both staffers and patrons. The hands-on owner has spent years in the auto industry, first manufacturing and selling tires before setting up his own wholesale supply shop more than two decades ago. Since then, Tyre Track Automotive Center has morphed into a full-service auto outfit that doles out routine maintenance services and repair work in addition to its ample stock of rubber wheels. During service appointments, Tim and his crew pull quality automotive products from the shelves, retooling vehicles with Valvoline motor oil, tires from Michelin, and Bosch wiper blades before sealing repair work with a kiss.
Each of Brake King's five locations staff ASE-certified techs who coddle engines with clean oil and bring frazzled wheels and frames into perfect alignment. During each 20- to 30-minute oil change, engines exchange swampy old muck for up to 5 quarts of clean synthetic crude, along with a new filter, guaranteed to keep out clogs caused by incoming dirt, debris, and corn dogs. Technicians then rotate the tires to equalize tread wear and tear, before poking and prodding their way through a precise safety inspection.
Laz Fly Airport Parking stows cars at their Bradley International Airport facilities, treating vehicles to safe storage and services while owners are away. Drivers take charge of their cars' temporary resting place with self-parking or entrust Laz Fly Airport Parking’s reliable valets to deliver cars to asphalt napping spots. Valet customers enjoy canopied protection while dropping off vehicles, and all customers can preserve their glass slippers with free shuttle service to the airport. Motorized steeds rest snug in a lot supervised 24/7, blissfully less jealous of their owners’ exotic trips to Bora Bora or Branson, Missouri.
Autos enjoy stem-to-stern pampering during an exhaustive detailing service, which leaves interiors vacuumed and glass surfaces crystal-clear. An interior shampoo and thorough purging of doorjamb debris creates a speckle-free cockpit, while fellow cars feast their eyes on an exterior free of fine scratches, oxidation, or wax buildup. Laz Fly Airport Parking’s auto stylists finish the service with a paint seal, wheel clean, and tire dressing so cars stop leaving footprints all over the garage's plush carpeting.

Heated seats, radar detectors, and OnStar navigation systems slide seamlessly into cockpits at the hands of the capable techs, who also wire remote starters into ignition systems so drivers can warm up their cars without having to buy them coffee.
