Ready To Shine’s detailing crew goes from one Tampa home to the next, sprucing up cars, trucks, and SUVs at their owners' convenience. The team eliminates the need to take rides to the car wash with a sudsy hand wash and dry, followed by one of three detailing packages. Clients can choose the Silver package for a quick interior vacuuming and spritzes of Armor All, or spring for the Gold package and treat their car to a wax and buff. At the top of the spectrum is the Platinum deal, complete with interior shampooing and a pep talk for bobble-heads that have been feeling apathetic.
Gussying up rides at locations in 15 of the continental states, Tuffy Auto Service Center's technicians perform full-service auto repairs backed by lifetime and nationwide warranties.

Other services include alignments for off-kilter wheels, which promote better gas mileage, and tune-ups, which ensure such components as the fuel injectors, ignition system, and spark plugs are in ship-shape.
Yellow and blue signage near the parking lots of shopping malls, offices, and entertainment centers indicates the presence of ProntoWash Eco AutoSpa, 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.
With soaps, waxes, clay bars, and shampoos in tow, S.O.S. Mobile Detailing’s technicians make house calls to cleanse dirty vehicles. They offer five different packages to accommodate all states of filth. Basic wash packages include an exterior wash, scrub, and tire shine, and full details use clay bars, hand waxes, and rim polishes to get cars glowing inside and out. In addition to detailing packages, S.O.S. also offers hard-water spot-removal treatments and engine cleaning.
