The employees at Suds Brothers don't rely on newfangled equipment to do their jobs. They don't depend on fancy gadgets, nor do they try to coax old fire trucks out of retirement just to use their high-powered hoses. Instead, Suds Brothers staffers always hand wash vehicles to remove actual grease, dirt, and smudges from customers' cars. They join forces and scrub rides during six different types of washes, ranging from a basic wash to a platinum service that includes a triple-clear coat protectant, interior and exterior dressing, and a wheel package. Customers who are short on time can skip the full packages and choose from various a la carte services, including tri-color polishes, wheel cleanings, and tire dressings.
The staff at America’s Tint protects automobile interiors from heat and UV rays and provides privacy for drivers and their valuables with window tints by 3M, ASWF, and DarkMatter. The technicians tackle jobs of all sizes, whether it's a single rear window on a sedan or every piece of glass on a truck or SUV. While applying the tinted film, they lay it neatly and snuggly over each window so the tints don’t look like oversized hand-me-downs from a 1970s van. In addition to automotive tinting, they offer commercial and residential tinting, detailing services, and vinyl graphics.
Most high school kids have only a glimmer of an idea of what they want to do when they grow up. But for three kids from the suburbs of LA, destiny came calling long before graduation day. The trio first came together back in 2001 when they would work on one another's cars every Friday; far from going unnoticed, their super-shiny cars soon won them a steady stream of other clients, and before they knew it, they had a tidy little business while their friends were stuck delivering pizzas.
Today, at JLH Detail, they work hard to give each and every car they come across a just-purchased shine. Wash and detail services can be scheduled at regular intervals, and the crew will bring its mobile unit straight to the customer's home or workplace, saving them time that could be spent on more important things, like teaching dogs to read.
