At ATC Window Tinting, technicians line the surfaces of cars and homes with more than 30 types of film, each bearing a useful set of characteristics. Antireflective coverings subdue hazardous glares that could cause traffic accidents, and solar-protection films block out heat while driving in the sunshine or rolling through a tanning salon. Paint-protection films deflect damage caused by rocks, salt, or gravel displaced by a vehicle's wheels. The techs also decorate surfaces with custom graphics and protect headlights and taillights with Lamin-x film. Mobile tinting, with hours extended into the nights and weekends, makes the service convenient for patrons in surrounding areas.
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.
Working from two locations in Jacksonville, Gunner Tire's certified technicians help cars reach their maximum mileage with a range of maintenance and repair services. After performing free safety inspections, the team draws from a stockroom of top-brand tires by Michelin, Falken, and Cooper to outfit cars with the best spinners in every size. They confiscate dirty oil and replace it with standard or Mobile 1 premium fluids, and toss away dingy filters wrought with engine-clogging debris. While cars receive service, customers can lounge in shop's diner-like atmosphere, where black-and-white checkerboard floors and vintage red walls box in a coffee bar and fresh air saturated with complimentary WiFi.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter; checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights. To merge mechanical harmony with aesthetic vibrancy, the friendly, certified technicians at Jiffy Lube also wipe and clean the outside windows and vacuum the floors inside in search of rogue nickels, all of which are returned to their proper owner, The Ghost of Abraham Lincoln.
