Yellow and blue signage near the parking lots of shopping malls, offices, and entertainment centers indicates the presence of ProntoWash Eco AutoSpa, a car wash and detailing powerhouse that boasts more than 350 operations worldwide. Its business model revolves around accessibility—ProntoWash sets up shop where cars already are, saving drivers time and preserving all the gas and corn dogs that engines would have otherwise consumed during a trip to a traditional car wash. Helming special yellow Washing Karts, the company's technicians use biodegradable detergent and about a pint of low-pressure water to render each car clean. They also care for cars by vacuuming carpets, restoring headlights, stuffing multivitamins inside ailing glove compartments, and making arrangements to hit the road with their mobile car-wash service.
While the techs at Coast Carwash are experts at washing dirty autos, their expertise doesn't end there. They've got everything they need to make sure grungy cars leave looking as good as the day they drove off the dealership lot. Waxes by Meguiar's and Nanoskin help seal in the car's restored shine and repel incoming filth, while Meguiar's leather treatments keep seats and other interior surfaces soft, supple, and crack-free. While they're inside, techs can also freshen the upholstery and carpets, shine all gauges, switches, buttons, and vents, and remove any foul odors left behind by forgotten take-out containers or hitchhiking trout salesmen. Tears in upholstery or isolated scratches on the car's finish are swiftly brought to rights, and the crew can also handle full headlight restorations or repair cracked windshields to ensure each auto drives away safely.
ProntoWash understands that its customers may have more important things to do than sit in a lobby waiting for their car to be cleaned. Which is why they set up their full wash and detail facilities in the parking lots of shopping malls and other heavy-traffic areas. This way, drivers can leave their cars with the technicians and run errands, go shopping, or inspect the quality of every straw in the food court. Meanwhile, the technicians stay busy buffing exteriors, shampooing carpets, and glazing paints, vinyl, and plastics, making sure that when customers return they’ll find their vehicles looking shiny and clean.

The team of professional chauffeurs at Shack's Luxury Limousines could tell you some stories. But they don't because they're professional. Instead, they press their suits, buckle their seatbelts, and man a fleet of stretch vehicles that includes Town Cars, Escalades, Hummers, and Chrysler 300s. In the client's choice of vehicle, drivers spirit singles, groups, or demanding alien overlords wherever they'd like to go, from weddings and proms to parties and airports. Frequent rollers can sign up for membership in Shack's VIP Limo Club for regular pickups and drop-offs and access to the bar, which comes stocked with Grey Goose, Patron, champagne, or other select bottles.
