Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with the standard brake service including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, factory maintenance services, batteries, belt replacement, and fluid services.
The experienced auto technicians at America's AutoSpa wield an arsenal of high-quality products from brands such as Armor All and Rain-X to combat wear-and-tear across vehicles of all kinds. Pickup and drop-off options facilitate easy wash and detail services and a 72-hour rain guarantee promises a free, repeat wash for any reason including unexpected showers or blasts of parade confetti. Free WiFi blankets the waiting room where customers await their steeds or sign up for membership benefits, which include 10% off services.
The FAA-certified pilots at Prestige Helicopters, Inc. fly their passengers over downtown Atlanta, the King and Queen towers, and Turner Field. They helm a fleet of three Robinson R44 helicopters, as well as R22 whirlybirds, each spacious enough for up to three guests. Along the way, skybound guests peep at the area's arterial highways, majestic mountains, and winding Chattahoochee River, intermittently soaring high enough to fly over skyscrapers while avoiding most feral clouds.
Pilots also instill basics of takeoff, steering, and landing during flight-training programs that start students off on the cloud-kicking path to obtaining private, commercial, and flight-instructor licenses. When not leading tours and training programs, the skywaymen shuttle passengers between airports and hotels and take aerial photographers up for photo shoots.
The certified personal trainers at Dream Body, Inc. craft fitness and nutrition regimens to fit each client's lifestyle. For private sessions, they travel to homes and offices with their exercise equipment, guiding patrons through custom workouts in a familiar, nonjudgmental setting. Their boot camps preserve the same sense of positivity in an outdoor group environment. Hosted at local parks, these classes incorporate free weights, cardio drills, and plyometric movements scaled to different skill levels.
For more than 20 years, the certified technicians at Dekra Emission Check have done one thing and done it well: superfast Georgia-state vehicle-emissions tests. Although most patrons choose to stay in the car and alphabetize their eight-track collection during the typically five-minute inspection, many of the growing list of almost 30 Atlanta-area locations feature an indoor lounge for auto owners to kick back in. If a vehicle’s emissions exceed the regulated limit, the team advises drivers of their options and performs a free retest at a later date.
Since its creation in 1925, Dekra Emission Check’s umbrella company, Dekra, has grown to include more than 30,000 employees in 50 countries. In addition to having performed more than three million vehicle inspections in the United States, the larger business offers services such as expert appraisals, industrial product testing and certifications, and management-system certifications.
