Holbrook Auto Repair has 13 service bays and a staff of ASE-certified technicians that service everything from the engine to the air conditioner. They offer oil changes, transmission work, and brake service to keep cars from premature retirement in a Florida junkyard. If a car needs a new part, the techs don’t need to go far; they stock parts for nearly every make and model, foreign and domestic, which they can install at the facility. Holbrook also carries tires from brands such as Goodyear and Michelin, and specializes in windshield replacement and repair.
International Detail's sole intent is to recapture each car's showroom shine. Technicians do this with meticulous details?they'll wash and wax exteriors by hand, thereby accessing all the little nooks and crannies a machine might miss. They shampoo stains from the carpeting, clean the seats, and scour the consoles, door panels, vents, hood ornament teeth, and windows for loose debris. And to make things easier on customers, they provide pick-up and delivery services for clients within a 5-mile radius of the shop. Those who opt to bring their cars in can entertain themselves with free Wi-Fi and darts and munch on snacks and coffee while their rides are being cleaned.
From its humble beginnings as an automotive glass store in Warren, Simbol Auto Glass has mushroomed into five locations. At the pentafecta of silica shops, techs unholster Sika brand products to eradicate windshield chips, and can outright replace cracked windshields in about one hour, or seven dog-hours. To keep sunlight from fading interiors, Simbol tints windows with Smoke film, which can reduce 4%–68% of transmitted light. Technicians also enhance cars with remote starters, alarms, and satellite radio.
Behind Easy Go Auto’s tidy crimson and white façade, teams of licensed technicians are hard at work, dutifully restoring and maintaining the vital systems of all makes and models of imported or domestic vehicles. Mechanics prevent wear, tear, and unexpected breakdowns with routine oil changes and tire rotations, while AC specialists maintain comfortable cabin temperatures with thorough inspections and repairs of hoses, lines, evaporators, compressors, and the cursed snowball that makes everything cold. Complimentary towing services within a 10-mile radius of the shop safely tote vehicles with unresponsive engines or ailing tires.
Lothrop Parking provides spaces for vehicles to rest their weary wheels for a while. One of Henry Ford Hospital's New Center skyways hovers above the entrance to this covered parking garage, which offers daily and monthly rates for car, truck, and SUV owners to leave their craft in a secure location. And it's just a few blocks northwest of the Amtrak station, putting travelers within easy walking or hopscotching distance of their waiting train.
The world’s first steam-cleaning car-wash franchise, DetailXPerts employs organic cleaning products to reinvigorate vehicles to show-room levels of spotlessness. With the Presidential detail, a team of expert scrubbers travel directly to clients to give four-wheelers the Oval Garage treatment over about two hours, kicking off with a traditional hand wash and dry. After the nebulous power of steam scours rims and wheels, a slathering of tire dressing shines up car shoes and eliminates any evidence of joy rides through tar pits. Detailers thoroughly vacuum and deodorize interiors, purifying seats and vents, conditioning carpet and upholstery, and steam-cleaning floor mats, along with a slew of other down-and-dirty tactics. Proud owners of people-movers can schedule appointments for DetailXPerts’ mobile unit to come meet them whether they’re at home, at work, or out running a car-wash fundraiser.
