From the moment customers arrive at Kwik Kar, the impeccably clean facility and friendly faces of trained professionals will make them feel as though they're about to embark on a glamorous yet speedy journey. Sit back and relax while deft oil changers swap out oil and perform a comprehensive check and fill of window washer, antifreeze, power steering, brake, transmission, front and rear differential, and transfer of case fluids. The staff of auto whisperers will also inspect a number of important vehicle components, including the exhaust system and belts and hoses, helping each vehicle cruise smoothly and stop burping at the drive-thru window.

The technicians at Columbia Detailing keep all types of vehicles looking shiny and neat for months after each cleaning, shampooing interiors and buffing exteriors with 100% biodegradable products. Crews travel to clients' driveways or workplaces to lift stains from upholstery or shield paint jobs with polymer sealer—a product with better bonding qualities and a higher melting point than the traditional carnauba wax or candy-coated shell. They also tackle more specific auto-detailing needs, such as paintless dent removal, carpet dyeing, and headlight restoration. Columbia Detailing prides itself on its ability to spot-clean, wax, and restore nearly any type of craft, from boats and RVs to motorcycles.

Bryant Mobile Detailing's scrupulous technicians sanitize vehicles at the customer's location with hand mitts, Cyclo polisher, and Meguiar's wax. During the express detail, cars lounge comfortably in their parking spot, driveway, or massage chair as techs prep them with a pressure wash and then perform a hand washing with a gentle wash mitt and mild detergent. After a chamois dry, detailers direct compressed air into any crevices to clear away debris, then coat the exoskeleton with Cyclo polisher and Meguiar's wax, which guards the finish for up to 12 weeks. Next, they dress the tires and wheel wells with a high-silicone rubber and plastic dressing, and blast bits of dust from interior hiding spots with a compressed air gun before sending the car galloping happily down the road.
John Caraway is a perfectionist. He's also a certified auto-body technician. At Dent Wrx, located inside of Phillipe's Auto Body, John is able to combine these two traits by restoring dented surfaces back to an overall smooth finish on vehicle exteriors. Caraway and his team of technicians use specially designed tools to massage away dents caused by hail or overzealous rice throwers who got kicked out of the wedding they were attending. Paintless dent repair is also available for customers. Services restore surfaces without the use of putty or additional paint, and they won't damage the finish of existing paint. As an added bonus, Dent Wrx sometimes provides loaner cars so that patrons don't have to ride the family dog to work.
For 15 years, IntelliDent's paintless dent repair has smoothed away dings without damaging original factory finishes. The specialty technique relies on massaging exteriors from the inside, which activates the metal's memory and restores it to its initial shape. The eco-friendly process can remove dings between the size of a dime and a half dollar that were caused by hail, minor collisions, and forays into car acupuncture.
The shop's team of skilled technicians can also tend to vehicles with more conventional repairs, eradicating all sorts of primarily cosmetic woes. As they work, the staff consults closely with insurance companies to make sure their repairs are cost-effective.
