At Lord's Detailing and Car Wash, technicians spurn mechanized car washes and opt to make over autos, boats, and even planes with their own two hands. With compulsive attention to detail and topnotch products, they swiftly hand scrub vehicles from roofs to tires and coat paint with wax to replenish moisture and shine. Inside cabs and trunks, they vanquish clutter before sudsing up carpets and reconditioning delicate leather, vinyl, or papier-mâché seats.

As part of this deal, Groupon customers also receive $10 off an express detailing service ($44.99) during a future visit.
Meineke Car Care Center's automotive medics keep vehicles healthy with installations of fresh fluids, tire rotations, and diagnostic checkups.

To help prolong tire life, even out tread wear, and improve fuel efficiency, mechanics rotate cars' circular feet and ensure that tire pressure is at an optimum level. The 15-minute service wraps up as techs top off vital fluids and run through a 23-point inspection, scouring key automotive components for potential problems or overgrown thickets of pine-tree air fresheners.
