The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change package, which helps promote 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 helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
365 Auto Detail knows that the only thing worse than having to take your car to the car wash is to have it get dirty again on the way home. That’s why they dispatch their cleaning crew directly to residences, helping cars regain their sparkle from the comfort of their driveway or luxury parking yacht. The mobile car groomers get vehicles road and runway ready with detail services that start with a meticulous hand wash and dry and may include spray wax, hand buffing, and scuff removal, and cars that have been well behaved all year may also be treated to upgrades including wheel restoration, dent removal, and upholstery cleaning.
ASE-certified Precision Tune Auto Care helps vehicles of all sorts run smoothly by performing top-of-the-line maintenance and repair services. The vehicular spa day begins with a full-service oil change, where a team of talented techs pours up to 5 quarts of 5W-20 or 5W-30 oil into thirsty autos while decking out happily oil-drunk engines with brand-new filters. Tires bask in equally tender treatment during a rotation, which promotes even wear and tear and gives easily bored circular sightseers a new vantage point. Upon completion, an alignment check finds out if anything is needed to keep cars rolling in a straight line. Precision Tune Auto Care's professional vehicle pamperers also stabilize tires' rubbery moods by treating them to lifetime balancing until they bounce off to the big wheelhouse in the sky. A visual brake inspection assesses the stoppers' surfaces for resistance capabilities, unusual noises, or grinding tendencies.
The technicians at B&C Auto Glass keep glass damage on vehicles from turning into larger safety issues through services such as sealing cracks and replacing windshields. To repair small cracks in the windshield, the team injects acrylic into the fissure to help improve visibility and prevent further deterioration, and can perform full windshield replacements on the same day. The team also has a mobile unit to travel to clients and perform their auto glass services, perfect for when clients can't get away from their home or when a windshield tries to run away with a rearview mirror.
