Before they break out the waxes, clay bars, and buffers, the technicians at Rocky's Custom Detailing kick off every exterior detail with a hand wash. This in order to erase the surface dirt clinging to grills, wheel wells, and other spots that machines can't reach. After that, they embark on a thorough tour of the car's interior and exterior; depending on which package the client chooses, they'll perform tasks such as steam cleaning the upholstery, and buffing scratches from the car's finish. The detailers also offer a few finishing touches such as chrome polishing, which can help make the car look as clean and new as it did when its transmission gears still had their baby teeth.
At Victory Lane Full Service Car Wash, an automatic conveyor system works together with good old-fashioned elbow grease. After mild detergents and fresh water rinse away dirt in the wash tunnel, the staff treats cars to the soft caress of a towel dry and an interior vacuum. The list of services ventures beyond the realm of basic washes to include three levels of detailing and à la carte options such as a triple-foam wax, rim cleaning, tire dressing, and headrest massage.
For the past 20 years, Madison Auto Detail’s technicians have freed cars from workaday grime and highway-born detritus with restorative detail services performed seven days a week. Crews spruce up vehicles inside and out with a spectrum of detailing packages, from an express service to a diligent total-vehicle overhaul. They unearth and evict stagnant smells burrowed in the vents and upholstery and hand wax and buff exteriors, leaving the surface smooth, shiny, and as reflective as a meditation circle conducted on a mirror. Madison Auto Detail also vends à la carte services, such as scotch guarding, paintless dent removal, and engine detailing.
At Mad City Sales, preowned vehicles undergo 120-point inspections by ASE-certified technicians before ever setting tire in a new garage. The inventory of used cars, trucks, and SUVs includes makes from Chevrolet to Volkswagen, and every vehicle comes with a free Carfax report and three-month, 3,000-mile warranty. Behind the rows of clean, road-ready cars toil skilled technicians who service vehicles with oil changes and repair everything from air conditioners with busted tubes to hood ornaments with broken wings.
As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extends beyond oil changes, too?they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.
