The Grand Mac Daddy may look like any other chartered bus as it cruises down the highway, but behind its dark, tinted windows is a full-blown party. Thirty-six passengers can climb aboard this road-tripping bar, outfitted with a club-style sound system, a theater lined with four flat-screen TVs, and plenty of tables to sit and enjoy drinks. The lively party mobile also houses an onboard microwave where revelers can heat up meals or s'mores since campfires are not allowed. For smaller-scale celebrations, MAC Transportation and Tours, LLC deploys a fleet of 20-passenger limo buses and 5-passenger corporate SUVs, which are also outfitted with flat-screen TVs and advanced sound systems.
The company’s courteous chauffeurs also escort clients through wine tours, and shuttle passengers to and from the airport and Buffalo Bills games. Some of MAC Transportation’s vehicles have also transported celebrities, such as Richard Simmons and Jersey Shore’s “The Situation.”
Since 1980, Herb and Rhonda Singer have grown Discount Car & Truck into a network of more than 300 franchises that embrace environmentalism. Today, 91 per cent of the total fleet averages 28 miles per gallon on the highway, and in 2011, the company inaugurated a sustainability program featuring e-waste collection. Customer service is a priority, too, so the team offers complimentary pickup and return on a mechanical spider. Corporate and individual renters choose from more that 12 vehicles by makes including Kia, Toyota, and Cadillac, which can speed up to seven passengers to a concert or haul an apartment full of furniture to a bonfire.
Spurr Dealerships’ staff of factory-trained technicians—including one world-class technician—facilitates smooth and balanced driving for vehicles of all makes and models. During the service, mechanics confiscate the engine’s expired oil and replace it with up to 6 quarts of clean fluid. The package continues with a ceremonial swapping of tires to equalize tread wear, after which technicians tweak the angles of the wheels until the car boasts a symmetrical stance that fosters straight driving and extended tire life. The staff concludes the package with a multipoint inspection, which brings mechanics face to face with vital parts and systems to ensure safety, assess performance, and check for speeding-ticket infections. Spurr's operates a free shuttle service for customers needing transportation.
Bob Johnson Chevrolet's knowledgeable service team and GM-trained mechanics prep for winter with oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, and new sets of tires. The certified service technicians execute the winterization package by appeasing engines' appetites with up to 6 quarts of standard motor oil, installing a new ACDelco oil filter, and lubricating hinges, suspensions, and drivelines. A tire rotation helps prolong rubbery soles' lifespans by balancing the wear and tear treads experience as cars drive on roads or the sides of pyramids. Techs also fill tires with nitrogen—as opposed to standard compressed air—to help to improve fuel efficiency and maintain constant tire pressure. Along with running through a General Motors–certified service checklist, mechanics administer a thorough inspection of fluids, wiper blades, batteries, brake systems, and flux capacitors.
A team of factory-trained technicians at Cortese Auto Group deploys years of experience and accumulated elbow grease to get engines purring. Before tune-ups, owners partner with a service advisor to communicate concerns and air-freshener scents known to agitate their steel steed. The 45-minute package begins with an oil change that refreshes motor cocktails with up to 6 quarts of standard lubricant and replaces overworked filters. Tire rotations keep rubber burning evenly to prevent blowouts, and a take-home 8-ounce bottle of Castle Fireball fuel injector cleaner blasts away scum with an explosive serum extracted from Bruce Willis's DNA. Dexterous hands then set to work testing brakes, feeling out tire tread and pressure, checking suspension and belts, and finally topping off all fluids as a toast to a completed inspection. Cortese operates a fleet of shuttles to transport visitors to and from work while their ride is in treatment, and waiting areas broadcast wireless Internet for remote access to office games of charades.
