When they founded Classic Car Spa, Jim Barrons and Tim Stocker wanted to build an oasis for road-weary vehicles, a place where cars could stop for revitalizing washes or regain lost performance with basic oil changes. Now scattered across locations in Phoenix and Tucson, the technicians carefully scrub away highway grime with lamb-wool mitts and wick away moisture with comically oversize blow dryers.
A Better Tint's licensed, insured, and bonded technicians darken glass surfaces with residential, commercial, and automotive window-tinting services. The factory-trained squad installs FormulaOne films on cars, Panorama films on storefronts, and Solar Gard films on home windows. For more than 20 years, its tinted windows have been shielding interiors from UV light, heat waves, and giant man-eating moths.
Each Super Star Car Wash location treats cars like the super stars they are with computerized washes, hand details, and maintenance services. Washes—which can be bought one at a time or in package form—range from full-service washes that combine machine and manpower to Mega Star washes that include add-ons such as Rain-X. The Express Wash sends customers through the soft cloth wash tunnel in three minutes, and is followed by a free vacuum at the Express wash locations. Detailing scour cars inside and out with vacuums and features such as carnauba hand wax, orbital polish, and clay-bar treatments and also may include Meguiar's wax to remove light oxidation, seal in surfaces' sparkle, and protect paint from unwanted hair growth. Additionally, oil changes supply engines with regular or synthetic Quaker State oil; each change comes with a free car wash.
Each Francis and Sons Car Wash facility features skilled staffers who cleanse vehicles with biodegradable solutions and perform vehicle maintenance like caruba waxes and vinyl conditioning. Washes, which range from basic rinses to complete interior and exterior makeovers, enlist spacious wash tunnels and soft cloths to scour paint, and hands wrapped in towels and feet gripping blow-dryers to dispel moisture. The multifarious auto stop provides detailing, repair, and oil-change services at the hands of certified auto technicians who also tint windows and butterfly-kiss rearview mirrors for good luck.
For nearly three decades, the staff at Danny's Family Car Wash has washed cars using soft cloths, mild, pH-balanced cleaning formulas, and a water-recapturing system that helps conserve resources. Oil changes, hail and dent repair, and detailing services further resuscitate rides at the 11 full-service, automatic locations in the Valley.
Dirty cars can pull up to any of Full Circle Autowash’s five locations for a full interior or exterior restoration. An automated wash tunnel doles out four car-wash packages, from a simple exterior wash and interior vacuum to the Platinum treatment, which includes sealer wax, interior-vinyl protection, and leather conditioning. Meanwhile, carnauba wax and clay bars give rides a deeper clean during interior and exterior detailing packages. In addition to sprucing up autos, the Full Circle team also arranges for windshield repairs, installs Solar Gard window film, and replaces old oil with fresh standard or high-mileage synthetic blends. While the team services cars, customers can head to the gift shop to get a snack or pick up a greeting card for their car.
