Michael Husky's Automotive Detailing spruces up cars with an expansive menu of cleaning services. As dashboard bobbleheads nod with approval, skilled technicians lift grime from deep within vehicle carpets and meticulously wipe down upholstery to an eye-pleasing sheen. As with a movie review from an utterly inconsiderate friend, no spoiler is left behind. The team hand washes car exteriors, buffs panels, and cleans windows to total transparency. Husky's also offers home pressure-washing services to remove mud from driveways and dirty magnetic poetry from refrigerator doors.
Working up a sweat is often seen as the prerequisite to getting in shape, but at Abstract Bodyworks, that's simply not the case. That's because the studio's trainers keep the studio cooled to 65 degrees, diminishing the body's need to sweat while preserving the benefits of exercise. Clients can even work out in their regular clothes, and there's no need to shower afterward.
The refreshingly cool temperature isn't the only thing that sets Abstract Bodyworks apart from other gyms. For one thing, the studio specializes in working with clients 40 and older, using movements requiring minimal force to help with chronic back and neck pain. For another, one-on-one full-body resistance training sessions last just 15 minutes?a convenient length for clients with busy schedules. Finally, the sessions are held in a private room without mirrors, allowing students to burn calories and tone their muscles without distractions.
As a family owned and operated business, City Auto Repair has spruced up sports cars and pampered pickups in the Gainesville area for 30 years. Regular tire rotation helps prevent the premature balding of tires, and oil changes keep engines happily lubed and friction free. A City Auto mechanic will fill your auto with up to five quarts of standard oil, or choose synthetic oil, which contains fewer contaminants and is recommended for high-performance vehicles. Avoid hitching a ride on a passing Zamboni and take advantage of City Auto’s complementary shuttle service to and from your home or workplace.
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.
The self-described "compulsive" technicians at Pamper Your Auto Detailing Spa pour their obsession into beautifying every detail on the cars, trucks, boats, and motorcycles that roll into their Gainesville shop. They perform hand washes dried with soft chamois cloth to kick off exterior auto detail services, adding extra indulgences such as leather conditioners, clay-bar treatments, and protective Teflon sprays. Their paintless techniques free doors from dings, and their intensive buffing treatments free boats from rust patches posing as barnacles.
