Though they’re located at Fox Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, the detailing techs at Fox Wash N Wax don’t just primp the dealership’s fleet of new and preowned cars; they also keep the public’s rides looking showroom-ready with a menu of wash and detailing services. Their hand washes remove gunk with old-fashioned elbow grease, and their interior details render cockpits more livable through window cleanings, vinyl dressings, and applications of bubbly carpet shampoo. In addition to traditional cleaning services, the crew also performs more specialized tasks: headlight restorations keep beams bright with scratch removal and protective sealant, and sap removal renovates cars that tried to dress as pine trees for Halloween.
Big D’s Limos escorts customers to their destinations in style and safety inside a fleet of classic and modern vehicles. Customers can opt for rides ranging from a snazzy, classic Excalibur wedding limousine with a vintage grill and white running boards to a contemporary 30-passenger limo coach with flat-screen TVs, a dance floor, and an instinctive ability to understand how computers work. Behind the steering wheel of each automobile is an experienced chauffeur capable of transporting customers to and from airports, weddings, nights on the town, or area vineyards.

Obsessed with cleanliness and cars, the team at Scotties Auto Detailing combines its two passions by imbuing vehicles with showroom-quality shine. Understanding that their customers’ time is precious like a children’s theater production of the Scopes-Monkey trial, the crew brings all of its car-cleaning equipment to homes or offices with its mobile services, or details autos on site, applying 3M products to paint jobs and using hot water extraction to spruce up upholstery. The multifaceted team also attacks floor-bound grime with residential carpet cleaning.
Delta Sonic Car Wash renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.
When David C. Magee and Robert W. August founded LaserWash TouchFree CarWash in 2003, they brought a collective 60 years of corporate experience. David helms the company, and Robert draws on the knowledge he gleaned during his time as the senior vice president of Monro Muffler, making them a veritable Jordan-Pippen combo, though shoe stores might not carry their signature kicks, which would be grease-splattered boots.
At their 13 LaserWash locations, the duo offers car-wash packages facilitated by an automatic LaserWash G5 process. As roadsters progress through a wide bay free of tracks to follow, a series of large signs directs drivers through each step. The LaserWash adjusts its size to fit vehicles up to 7 feet tall by way of ultrasonic and infrared sensors. It also uses less water and electricity than typical car-wash equipment, along with pH-balanced and biodegradable soaps and waxes. After the undercarriage wash removes salt, sand, and damaging contaminants from car bellies, the triple foam polishes paint jobs and the clear-coat protectant shields autos from acid rain, UV rays, and icy glances. Once exteriors are clean, coin-operated vacuums, shampooers, and fragrance misters await car owners, who can scour their car interiors until they sparkle both inside and out.
