Outfitted with crisp red shirts and hands well versed in shop talk, SCR Auto Center’s car custodians expertly execute a robust array of automotive services. During each oil change, chariots, like homesick astronauts, gulp down up to 5 quarts of 5W-30 oil and wipe the corners of their mouths with new filters (cartridge filters not included) before a tasting menu of fresh fluids further whet thirsty receptacles. Technicians then rotate tires into a comfortable radius and thoroughly inspect vehicles in search of disrepair and defects. To top off the automotive spa package, exteriors receive a thorough scrub down and a kiss on the cheek, given ever so gently. SCR Auto Center’s waiting area stocks complimentary coffee, refreshments, and Internet, and an early-bird drop-off option accommodates drivers’ busy schedules.
Every car-cleaning package at Hayward Carwash—from an exterior car wash to an advanced detail—begins with a 100% hand wash. This way, the painted finish is in no danger of being damaged by machines, and the car’s exterior is thoroughly cased for smudges and specks of dirt before the staff dresses it in Rain-X water repellent, Blue Coral wax, and paint sealant. During washes and details, cars shake off their filth as the staff scrubs them down with earth-friendly soaps and solutions to help them shine as brightly as the day they cartwheeled off the assembly line.
Hayward Carwash features an onsite gift shop that stocks auto accessories, beverages, complimentary coffee, and free popcorn that customers and their cars can share later that night at the drive-in movies.
In a wide-ranging fleet of vehicles, the chauffeurs at After Hours Limousines whisk away clients for airport service, winery tours, and special events. Cadillac Escalades, stretch Hummer H2s, and Chrysler limousines transport parties big and small, keeping passengers entertained with DVD players, flat-screen TVs, and luxury bars. Chauffeurs track air travelers' flights for prompt airport pickups, ready to carry bags and dust off any cloud residue from passengers' clothes. Clients can reserve limos for one-time concerts or sporting events or as month-long hibernation spots for bears.
Before a nick has the chance to blossom into a full-on fracture, the technicians at Auto Glass Fixers speedily repair or replace the offending glass to restore visibility and safety. In addition to working on chipped, cracked, or shattered vehicle windows at their on-site shop, they offer free mobile service, traveling directly to the vehicle so clients don’t have to put themselves at risk by driving with a broken windshield. They provide a lifetime warranty on labor and if any glass defects.
Mission Car Wash’s drive-thru tunnel is alive with the whirring of colorful cloth wheels, the bubbling of frothy soaps, and the gentle hum of warm dryers. Cars roll into the wash tunnel’s soapy embrace 12 hours a day, 365 days a year, emerging out the other end with sleek, shiny bodies, polished wheels, and passenger seats full of well-entertained children. After a wash, car owners can use the vacuum machine to scour interiors, fill up their tires with free air, or grab some gas and food at the connected gas station and convenience store.
