Originally run out of one pickup truck, Houston Auto Glass & Windshield Replacement has spent nearly two decades growing a fleet of mobile technicians big enough to serve customers throughout Dallas and Houston. The techs swap out windshields lacerated with cracks and replace them with shiny new units, allowing drivers to easily see when the road ahead is actually their neighbor's swimming pool. Urethane adhesives and quality sealant join a steadfast warranty to keep new panes in place. The glass gurus also repair rock chips and tackle other services such as painting and body repair.
With the help of the knowledgable staff at LCA, driving a luxury car isn't an unattainable dream. Its customers can rent lauded vehicles such as Lamborghinis without paying extra for a membership, giving them the chance to cruise the city streets in style or make particularly glamorous runs to the hardware store. They can also rent the luxury cars for special events such as weddings, photo shoots, and corporate functions.
The locally owned Express Care Quick Lube center betters the interior and exterior of vehicles with the same skill and professional touch championed by Valvoline in more than 100 different countries. Full-service oil changes keep cars running smoothly, and replacement batteries reinvigorate weary engine blocks. While transmission and radiator services take care of the inner organs, laser car washes keep the car’s shell radiant with high-pressure washes, polishes, and sealants that protect the paint against moisture and UV rays.
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, 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 who 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 perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. 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.
For the guests of Cowboy Fan Connection, a Dallas Cowboys game actually starts three hours before kickoff. For both home and away games, the company hosts all-inclusive tailgate parties?with or without tickets to the game itself?that keep revelers sustained with burgers, brats, drinks, and raffles for Cowboys merchandise. Customers can dress the part with apparel from the online store to show off their fandom or eerie resemblance to Troy Aikman to current and former players during private autograph sessions.
In addition to game-day events, Cowboy Fan Connection also hosts Saturday-night dinner parties where fans come together to break bread as sportswriter Mickey Spagnola and former Cowboy Nate Newton broadcast their weekly radio program, Radio Road Show. Stadium tours the day before or after a game enable fans to guide themselves throughout Cowboys Stadium, while off-season trips such as a weekend in the Bahamas give fans the chance to draw up defensive plays in the sand with current and former Cowboys.
The well-trained troop of carriage cleaners at DFW Mars restores cars to their showroom sheen with meticulous interior and exterior detailing treatments. Utilizing a specialized line of cleaning products, auto beauticians vivify outer surfaces with sudsy washes and a giant loofah. Once buggy baths expunge unsightly grime from hoods, bumpers, and headlight eyelashes, specialists transform metallic shells into sleek veneers with a thorough application of wax. Moving inward, scrubbing contingents infiltrate interior nooks during a deep clean of wagon heartlands. Material cracks caused by wear-and-tear or hibernating squirrels receive punctual treatment, and windows, rugs, and dashboards bask in the soft afterglow of a fresh buff. In less than two hours, previously untouchable sedans will emerge fresher and shinier than a newborn Christmas-tree ornament.
