What began more than 50 years ago as a single auto-repair outlet in Macon, Georgia, is known across America today as Midas. The trusted chain of car-repair shops spans 17 countries worldwide, and each location employs a skilled, reliable staff that strives to keep drivers and their families safe. This goal is perhaps best embodied by the Midas Touch Courtesy Check, a service during which technicians check fluid levels and tires for safety and check the area under the vehicle to make sure Robert De Niro isn?t trying to hitch a free ride. Once they've given vehicles the once-over, mechanics can then prescribe any necessary services to keep cars running smoothly, such as brake repair, filter changes, alignments, and engine tune-ups.
At El Car Wash's two soft cloth locations, you can drive your car into a series of sprayers and dryers to get it clean from bumper-to-bumper. At the end, clients can use the free vacuums onsite to get rid of dirt and debris on the inside. Staff members are on hand to assist drivers when ordering their service, and for the premium service, they hand-dry cars.
Yellow and blue signage near the parking lots of shopping malls, offices, and entertainment centers indicates the presence of ProntoWash, 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 they specialize in Nissans, the mechanics at Maroone Nissan of Kendall know their way around all kinds of engines, performing all routine maintenance and more extensive repairs using factory-certified parts. Their expertise extends to customizing cars with entertainment doodads such as DVD players as well as with custom wheels. For those in need of a ride but not looking to buy, the dealership also rents cars, giving customers a choice of vehicles and leaving a mint on each hood. In this light, the dealership is conveniently located near the exit to Key West.
Whether in their own garage or making a trip to a mall parking lot or client's workplace, Spot Dry Car Wash's professional cleaners make vehicles sparkle with their eco-friendly cleaning processes. As customers run errands or spend a day at work, the technicians descend upon a site of the client's choice to hand wash and wax trusty rides. They rely on the cleansing power of nontoxic, biodegradable products for exterior scrubs, which require just a single pint of water—about 20% of what an elephant can hold in its trunk—per wash. In addition to basic exterior cleansings, they delve into interiors with intensive full-detail packages, during which they polish dashes and doorjambs, vacuum carpets, and divest upholstery of dirt, stains, and fossilized lollipops. :m]]
