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.

The technicians of Eco Auto Detail follow green practices when they clean automobiles, eschewing acids, corrosives, phosphates, and silicones in favor of eco-friendly materials. Tugging along mobile cleaning equipment, they travel to the customer's desired location, be it work or home.

Executive Valet Parking makes voyages to the airport a little less stressful by storing rides in a secure, 24-hour parking lot. Drivers can check in their cars and opt for any additional services—such as oil changes, car washes, or detailing packages—before taking a quick shuttle ride to Bradley International Airport. When owners return, they can use the express checkout system, recharge their car or robotic child at an electric-car-charging station, and be on their way. Executive Valet Parking also rewards frequent parkers with its Express Club, which doles out reward points for every day paid.

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.

GetRide's app transforms an iPhone or Android smartphone into an electronic beacon, which draws in cab drivers like a magnet. Users need only set their pickup location and then wait. Moments later, a cab driver calls, verifies the information, and then zooms off to pick up customers, who can track the progress of their ride. Fares and tips are paid through GetRide, and the app also incorporates a review system, so users can seek out the most reliable cab drivers in the city and all of its alternate dimensions.
