Auto Fix draws on their parent company's deep wells of experienced, ASE-certified technicians to staff their seven garages in Illinois and Indiana. The full-service shops keep cars running with oil changes and thorough vehicle check ups, and they routinely flush power steering, radiator, and transmission fluids. Having spent years working with vehicles, Auto Fix technicians can repair any part of the car from the suspension to the fuel system. They're confident in their repairs as well, offering any client a 12-month or 12,000-mile guarantee on each fix. The team also renders problem-precluding services such as full safety inspections, shocks and struts service, and tire rotation—which does not mean enforcing who’s up next on the backyard tire swing.
The friendly chauffeurs at AWC Limousines rev their engines when transportation by regular-old taxis or buses simply won't do. They command a convoy of Lincoln Navigators and Town Cars?both sedan and stretch-limousine versions?for high-style jaunts about town, negotiating traffic and solving construction detour riddles while clients relax in comfort. They transport guests for a number of occasions, providing quick lifts to the airport or longer spins for weddings or prom.
Before expanding to five locations, the owners of the first Zoom Clean found that they couldn't get the results they wanted with just any old soaps and waxes. They soon tracked down a chemist, who glued the periodic table to every doorknob and helped them develop their own innovative line of cleaning products. The resulting detergents, shampoos, polishes, and protectants now cleanse chariots of all shapes and sizes?including semi-trucks, motorcycles, limousines, and boats?to a glossy shine in Zoom Clean's touchless automatic washes, DIY bays, and hand-wash stations. Z Clean 2-in-1 Powder, a highly concentrated multipurpose mixture, protects paint jobs by reducing friction during washing. When they aren't buffing and waxing autos in their detail center, resident technicians perform diagnostic checks, install 3M Window Film, and restore cloudy headlights. They can also steam-clean interiors, scour engines, and refill parched oil tanks.
The car-whisperers of the 50-year-old Midas franchise investigate vehicles’ road-readiness with comprehensive inspections backed by the all-encompassing Midas guarantee. A 1.5-hour wintertime assessment probes brakes, suspension, batteries, and heating and cooling systems, thereby ensuring commuters' safety during drives through flurries or while outrunning the ice rays of Mr. Freeze's cold gun. Each seasonal inspection pairs with a complimentary tire rotation to even out rubber wear and ensure that each car-foot gets its 15-minutes in the spotlight of following cars.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. These technicians learn their care-care talents during stints in Jiffy Lube University, the company's exhaustive training program. During their training, technicians engage with computer-based learning, apply knowledge during on-the-job-training, and pass frequent skills tests to master the art of engine maintenance. Upon graduation, technicians also take the Jiffy Lube Pledge, vowing to service their customers' cars with the same care they would normally reserve for their own vehicles. This extensive curriculum and commitment to customer service is part of what earned the program accolades as an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Training Provider.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s experts perform air conditioning, air filtration, cooling system, electrical, windshield services, and many more. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services and only complete those services after it has been approved by the owner.
The pilots at Sun Aero Helicopters Inc. have been training pupils in the autogiro arts and transporting clients through the skies since 1991. Inside their base at Lansing Municipal Airport, aviators maintain a 12,000-square-foot hangar area and 3,000 square feet of training offices and high-speed computerized flight-planning facilities. Expert pilots impart their knowledge to up-and-coming FBI agents, police officers, emergency medical technicians, and leisure pilots during one-on-one training sessions in Robinson and Bell copters. Pilots also give landlubbers a skyscraper's view of Chicago's landmarks, such as US Cellular Field, the John Hancock building, and the Sears/Willis Tower. When they aren't transporting rally drivers, golfers, and famous wiffle ball players with private charter services, Sun Aero serves national media companies with aerial photography and land surveys.
