From humble beginnings as a coin-op car wash, AquaJet Express has blossomed into a network of 43 car-beautification centers since the opening of its first location in 1977. While its primary concern is the cleanliness of cars—a mission undertaken with soft cloths, environmentally friendly cleaning agents, and a gentle touch—its geographical growth has allowed the company to broaden its automotive purview. The ever-expanding team now includes a variety of maintenance specialists, who swap out spent oil and coolant or remove bodywork dents and unfortunate fender tattoos alongside their car-scrubbing coworkers. :m]]
Lenhart's trained technicians treat motor mobiles to oil changes that minimize engine damage caused by heat and friction and maximize the affection cars have for their masters. Afterward, a 40-point inspection ensures that vehicles meet local safety standards before a wash and vacuum leaves interiors and exteriors dapper and debonair, inspiring tears of joy from eyes and headlights alike upon the inevitable reunion of owner and combustion chariot.
The fully trained, GM–certified technicians at Day Chevrolet evaluate and mend broken jalopies of all makes and models during car exams that last approximately 35 minutes. A checkup determines battery health, tire wear, and inflation issues, as well as ensuring chariots remain as fuel efficient as a gasoline-can assembly line. Vehicle minders audit brake pads and rear linings, lubricate body components, and scrutinize engines, transmissions, and fuel systems. Afterward, motor mechanics carefully wash each metallic surface in a tender dance of water, soap, and gentle drying. Conveniently schedule appointments online, or carve a note into a tire and roll it toward Day Chevrolet.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
The car shiners at Auto Bathouse's original and new Butler Street locations leave no stone unturned with bumper-to-bumper cleaning services and top-brand oil changes. While the Lawrenceville location was formerly known as the Unique Auto Wash, the business still showers cars with a soft-cloth wash, heated blow dryers and a climate-controlled towel-drying area to keep teeth and grills from chattering. Select detailing services at the Monroeville location take more invasive measures such as engine degreasing, carpet steaming, and odor removal. Aesthetic upgrades spiff up auto bodies with paint sealants and chip repairs that fend off road debris, as well as window tints and carpet dye jobs that cover up graying fibers and keep aging autos feeling youthful. To keep clean cars from becoming mere driveway ornaments, techs keep pistons whirring with oil changes from brands such as Castrol and Pennzoil.
Solar Control Window Tinting swathes panes in professional films that diffuse sunlight and maintain even-keeled climates in cars, homes, and offices. Residential and commercial windows don sheer or dense privacy films from brands such as 3M and Piper, which block up to 99% of UV rays, trap warmth in the winter, and block heat in the summer, keeping energy consumption in check and environments comfortable. The coatings also protect art and upholstery from sun damage, and can reduce the number of flying shards should storms or soprano houseguests shatter windows.
Solar Control’s techs apply the same surface savvy to car windows, precision-cutting film to fit individual panes or covering vulnerable auto paint with weather-resistant urethane film. While technicians work on rides at the company's headquarters, drivers can settle into plush couches, peruse satellite TV channels, and join a free WiFi network in the waiting room.
