An authorized dealer for Crackmasters and Scorpion bed liners, One Stop Detail Shop leaves cars gleaming once they've undergone careful cleaning, repair, or preventive work at the shop. Detailing technicians beautify vehicles ranging from sedans to RVs and boats with hand waxes and hand washes, never trusting shifty feet to do the job right. Damaged windshields look new again after an application of chip-eradicating resin, a sealing technique that can smooth away cracks up to 36 inches long. Alternatively, the team also installs new windshields in versions that run heavier and thicker than typical Canadian models. To guard against future mishaps, technicians also administer protective treatments that include rustproofing metal parts and safeguarding paint against damage.

At Apex, an ASE Blue Seal of Excellence–certified shop, trained auto technicians service vehicles and give them a complimentary detailing during a 90-minute service. Car care experts drain vehicles of their sullied petroleum, replenish motors with up to five litres of fresh oil, and then outfit engines with new oil filters. Auto technicians examine under hoods and inspect each car's brakes, suspension, and true identity. After the service, motor makeover artists perform a QC check, wash the car's exterior, and then vacuum the carpets. Finally, tires are shined, interiors are wiped, and a final quality check ensures rides run as smoothly as an olive-oiled Barry White before skedaddling back to their owners. While cars are being serviced, customers can relax in Apex's waiting room, where a flat-screen, satellite TV display sports and a coffee machine perks up patrons by dispensing caffeinated beverages and shrink-zapped aerobics instructors. Repairs include a three-year or 60,000-kilometre warranty. Synthetic oil is available for an additional charge.
