The experienced technicians at ExotiCarSpa work around their clients’ busy lifestyles by coming to their homes to hand wash and detail vehicles. Roaming South Florida in white vans, these detailers make pit stops to clean up cars of all kinds—a celebrity's Bentley, a pro athlete's Lamborghini, a magician's invisible Pinto. They also soap up motorcycles and boats, and provide protection and restoration services to keep bugs from sticking to grilles and remove all traces of chickens that never got to the other side.
In Chicago, Milwaukee, and throughout Florida, Coast to Coast Detail deploys technicians right to clients' driveways or parking spots, where they gussy up vehicles inside and out with extensive detailing services. Owner Zaib Kurishy says the company's focus on mobile services means "less hassle" for customers, many of whom call to have their cars detailed while they're in the office. "They just sit at work and it gets done in a matter of two–three hours," he says.
All of the company's managers have been trained in California, at one of the country's top detailing schools. In turn, they rigorously train all new technicians before they're allowed out on the job. For the basic and showroom exterior details, the staff's thorough car cleansing includes an application of high-quality carnauba wax. If they're not performing clay-bar service, they'll use an eco-friendly waterless wash that Zaib says leaves cars looking even cleaner. For interior details, the technicians do everything from shampooing upholstery to conditioning door panels, air vents, and other surfaces.
Zaib says Coast to Coast Detail's commitment to customer satisfaction has meant a strong repeat client base, which includes some big names. The team has detailed all of the 200+ cars for the Chicago Auto Show, and also regularly does detailing at Joe Perillo and Fletcher Jones dealerships so salespeople don't have to find secret waterfalls to drive the cars beneath on their way to the showroom.

Air & Sea Parking furnishes a safe, insured, multilevel garage where cars can wait out their drivers' trips sheltered from the elements. The company takes convenience a step further by detailing and maintaining their wheeled wards for an additional charge, including upholstery spot treatments, oil changes, and tire rotations. Like toddler mob bosses, automobiles are subjected to 24-hour surveillance to prevent any risky business. Air & Sea Parking further eases the travel process by running a 24-hour, year-round shuttle service to the airline or cruise terminals.
Yellow and blue signage near the parking lots of shopping malls, offices, and entertainment centers indicates the presence of ProntoWash Eco AutoSpa, a car wash and detailing powerhouse that boasts more than 350 operations worldwide. Its business model revolves around accessibility—ProntoWash sets up shop where cars already are, saving drivers time and preserving all the gas and corn dogs that engines would have otherwise consumed during a trip to a traditional car wash. Helming special yellow Washing Karts, the company's technicians use biodegradable detergent and about a pint of low-pressure water to render each car clean. They also care for cars by vacuuming carpets, restoring headlights, stuffing multivitamins inside ailing glove compartments, and making arrangements to hit the road with their mobile car-wash service.
