The technicians at Auto Hail Pros draw from 15 years of experience to repair dents in automobiles with a process called paintless dent removal. They massage damaged metal from beneath its surface, ironing out dents left by hailstones or ping-pong balls volleyed by a vengeful neighbor. They also offer a convenient pickup and drop-off service and outfit patrons with rental cars for the duration of service. As an added bonus, they back their work with a lifetime guarantee.
The certified technicians at Aspen Auto Clinic take pride in their nonpushy approach. When their professional diagnostic equipment identifies an issue, they make recommendations based on safety and factory recommendations, but they won't use hard salesmanship to coerce owners into upgrading parts. When they do perform repairs and maintenance, their team backs up the handiwork with a three-year or 36,000-mile warranty.

The road to extended motor vehicle life begins with a 16-point safety inspection to listen to engine purrs and measure mud-flap flappiness levels. The staff then fills tires with delicious nitrogen, a road hugger’s preferred between-meal snack (a $19.99 value), before expertly rotating wheels in perfect circles (a $19.99 value).
Located in Sears stores or at adjacent offices, Sears Optical's independent optometrists screen peepers to determine accurate prescriptions and diagnose any health problems. As doctors position a refractive device over the eyes, flipping through lenses of varying strengths, patients describe the level of clarity with which they can see the purple zebra dancing in the far corner. In addition to the prescriptive exam, doctors may use eye drops to dilate the pupil to scrutinize the retina.
