From custom leather seats to eye-catching spoilers, Autoplex by Vanworks refurbishes cars, trucks, and SUVs with interior and exterior accessories. Window tints by 3M, Webasto sun roofs, and bumpers are just part of the shop’s exterior enhancements; technicians also equip rides with tires by Michelin and Good Year. On the inside, technicians install both luxuries and necessities, including seat-heaters, floor mats, and LiquiCell Comfort equipment, which save drivers from a sore coccyx after a long road-trip or stake-out of their old principal's house. Alpine products drive Autoplex’s electronics division, where the professional installers can soup up systems with everything from overhead video units to vehicle-specific navigation systems.

This roof-to-wheel interior-and-exterior scrubbing by Whistle Clean Car Wash's expert staff includes a carpet conditioning, a polish wax, window defogging, a wipe down of all your vinyl's incriminating fingerprints, and a 30-day unlimited basic exterior wash pass to keep your ride in mint gum-free condition.

Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
At Richie's Express Carwash, cars roll through an automated tunnel where a cutting-edge computer system hones in on each vehicle's dirtiest spots. Soapy soft cloths clean vehicles and then a special eight solutions cleans exteriors, before suds are blasted away with high-pressure clean water. At the end of each session?which takes about four minutes?cars travel through a drying tunnel whimsically decorated with stuffed animals. There, a system of 15 high-velocity fans brings exteriors to a spot-free shine. Drivers can blow raspberries at their newly cleaned rides from the viewing station before sprucing up interiors at complimentary self-serve vacuum stations.
As Greeley's lone full-service auto wash and detailing location, Bear's Car Wash often becomes a popular sunny-day destination for car owners in need of car-cleaning options at any level of thoroughness.

They quickly get to work on cars of any size, unleashing a whirlwind of services that can include carpet shampooing, underbody power washing, and hood-ornament mani-pedis. The car wash also offers a smaller-scale storage facility popular with frequent travelers.
After spending 12 years working in big-box retail stores, RC Auto Detail and Carpet Cleaning founder Romia Pritchett decided to give back to the environment and local community by building a business model based on eco-friendly products and charitable acts. With her philosophies in mind, Romia’s skilled technicians sanitize carpets, upholstery, and tile through a litany of domestic cleansing services, including upholstery cleaning, carpet grooming, and floodwater removal. Her auto polishers keep vehicles of all sizes fresh inside and out with washing, waxing, vacuuming, and odor-repellent treatments during extensive detail sessions, or remove mud stains and passive-aggressive Wash Me smudges from exteriors during quick washes.
In addition to promoting unsullied domestic and mobile ecosystems with thorough cleanings, Romia and her crew maintain a strong connection to the community with memberships in Rotary International, the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra, and large donations in support of local charities.
