When your car smells like the dog has been driving his pup pals around after a day at the beach, Platinum Hand Car Wash ousts the odors with specialty antibacterial cleaning. In fact, the technicians are trained to hide any evidence of a canine presence during detailing services, plucking pet hair from upholstery and polishing away paw prints from the console. They also work hard to get exteriors gleaming, shielding color with clear coat protectant and cleaning tires and rims by hand.
VIP Express has been in the business of sparklizing autos since 1968. During each of two 20- to 30-minute detailing sessions, an exterior wash and hand-spray waxing give steel steeds a bodily shine to reflect back the jealous looks of dingy mopeds and besmirched dune buggies. Inside-and-out window polishing invites second-guessing about glass's existence, and scrubbed wheels and rims outfit each car with fancy new footwear. Inside the car, a vacuum picks up finely aged potato-chip crumbs, and shampooed floor mats and conditioned consoles provide a pristine ridescape for lengthy road trips and quick treks to the taxidermist.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
Vehicles take on new luster in Heavenly Touch Car Wash and Detail Center's sheltered bay, purring beneath an arsenal of products by brands including Rain-X and Armor All. Gliding silently across newly gleaming hulls, soft cloths and feral feather boas skim specks of grime, and towel drying leaves streak-free shines. Employees tack extra miles of life onto cars and SUVs of all sizes while proud drivers peer hopefully from the WiFi-cloaked confines of the waiting room. With vacuums feasting happily, visitors return to waxed, buffed, and detailed roadsters purged of traces of driving through boss' mud pies.
The professionals at Bucktown Hand Car Wash & Detailing groom vehicles inside and out during cleaning and detailing services that leave rides glistening. Technicians squirt sponges with Meguiar's Soap and scrub the body from bow to stern by hand; this allows them to deliver a car wash that's more thorough and gentle than sending cars through a machine wash or parking them atop a geyser. Cars pull out of Bucktown Hand Car Wash & Detailing with heightened night vision after having their headlights cleaned, or the ability to make riders feel like they're driving in an eclipse following a window tinting.
