For 15 years, Pearl Car Wash has pampered vehicular surfaces with an array of doting services performed by expert auto aestheticians. Entrust four-wheel friends to the indulgent care of a gold wash to buff up fiberglass panels and erase mud-drawn effigies of Mr. Rogers. This thorough treatment begins with a full-service hand wash, an underbody tickle session, and a stylish tire-and-exterior dressing. Then, car-care professionals step inside each auto to vacuum the carpets of pebbles and stray G.I. Joe limbs, scrub the dash and console, and desmudge the windows. Finally, every car is coated in a flattering rainbow wax and clear-coat protection.
As its name implies, 24 Hour Max Car Wash is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and it's one of the only 100% touch-free washes in Fallbrook. But that's not the only convenience car owners will find here—they'll also find three different options for cleaning their ride. The shop's fully-automated signature system, the Istobal MX22, is equipped with a higher number of sensors and relays than most typical automatic wash tunnels, allowing it to apply the perfect amount of pressure to completely rid cars of grime. Meanwhile, drivers looking for a wash with a few sprucing extras—such as clay bar treatments and chrome polishing—can pull up around back for detailing services, while those who prefer to bathe their car themselves can pull into the self-serve wash bays, where they'll find everything they need including brushes and spray wands.
Of course, cars aren't the only member of the family prone to splashing through puddles, which is why 24 Hour Max Car Wash also has a pet wash station in back. There, owners can scrub down their dog or raccoon with oatmeal shampoo, conditioner, and flea and tick products, before treating it to a blow dry.
Water from the tap contains minerals that leave speckles and streaks on otherwise gleaming autos. Wax On Wax Off Auto Detailing uses a de-ionization system with specially formulated resins to bind and filter out the dissolved salts that can result in these telltale spots, yielding H2O superior to what is available in most homes. The crews also use a range of products designed to cleanse tires, dashboards, center consoles, and door panels and make wishful bumper stickers about owning an honor student come true. Clay bars help technicians working on home driveways or in the company’s lot to remove miniscule particles of grit from paint, and carnauba wax and UV-protection elixirs further equip them to beautify rides.
BumperDoc's shop managers oversee an experienced team of specialists who make it their mission to restore bruised and weathered autos to fine fettle. Bumper repair and dent removal address the damage from small fender benders; full-scale body repair helps vehicles recover after serious accidents or attacks by jilted horses. BumperDoc also treats cars to window tinting, detailing, and paint touchups. To prove their ability to the entire Internet, BumperDoc's staff has filled an online gallery with photos of their car-beautifying efforts.
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.
