The clingy grime of both roads and water routes falls away at the hands of Finishing Touch Auto Detailing's professional technicians. With laser-like focus, they dole out elaborate wax and shampoo treatments to cars, trucks, and RVs, creating such a transformed, brand-new look that the GPS will wonder if it woke up in the wrong vehicle. Techs also trek to homes or the land's edge and groom water vessels inside and out, returning the majestic glow of the boat's maiden voyage by polishing, sanding, and varnishing the water- and windswept hull. They also spruce up engine rooms, repaint surfaces, and prep boats for winter by shrink-wrapping them and teaching them the difference between an iceberg and a snow cone.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, the family owned and operated Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to US EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.

Seven days a week, the detailers at Clean Ride work to give cars, trucks and motorcycles their shines back. Even better, they perform all their services both at their shop or remotely, anywhere vehicles are parked. Using Mothers cleaning products, they muscle through hand washes and wax applications, getting exteriors vehicle gleaming. They apply equal care to interiors too, shampooing carpets, wiping down instrument panels, and repairing vinyl and leather.
The staff at Meara Image Auto Detailing treats every vehicle equally. From the sleek luxury sedans to full-size SUVs, the detailing pros pamper every vehicle with thorough care. In fact, they prefer to use the term bathe to describe how they delicately buff cars and send each ride home with a rubber duckie tied around their rearview mirror. The crew applies that same level of care to everything they do, be that tinting windows, removing small dents, or installing sound systems or remote starters. Clients who use the nearby commuter boats are encouraged to drop their vehicles off in the morning, and Meara will pick them up from the dock when they return from work. In addition to the convenient location, the shop offers one night of free heated garage parking when space is available.
Auto Number One's mechanics duck beneath cars during repair and maintenance services, looking to fix faulty engines and brakes, perform tune-ups, change oil filters, and align wheels with the stars. At the detailing shop, the techs wash, wax, and dry cars by hand, mend dents, and restore headlights. When vehicles need a makeover, drivers can browse the shop's selection of window tints, remote starters, alarm systems, and audio systems, or stroll through the rows of preowned vehicles and to see if any automotive aestheticians are hiding there.
Herbie's Car Wash relieves roadsters of filthy frames and muddy fenders with shine-sprucing car washes. Submit an unkempt sedan, SUV, or recreational moon rover to an automatic, touchless The Works wash, which begins by treating cruisers to a two-step presoak system that rids rides of easy-to-remove grime. Next, undercarriages are washed, and car exteriors undergo a spot-free rinse that rids sleek sports cars and dalmatian-painted station wagons of spot-imitating gunk. Hoods, bumpers, trunks, side mirrors, and windows are then scrubbed and rendered dirt-free. Next, surfaces are spruced with Simoniz triple-foam polish, and paint jobs are layered with Simoniz double-bond protectant, which guards against water spots, salt residue, and hurled ice-cream cones. To finish up each car-pampering procedure, vehicles are hand dried before being returned to their proud surrogate parents.
