Located within a mile of both Orlando and Jacksonville International airports, ParkEzFly safeguards travelers' ground-bound transporters while they take to the skies. Customers deposit their car in the 24/7 lot, check in, and wait no more than 15 minutes before a shuttle rolls up and escorts them to the terminal. ParkEzFly's video-surveillance cameras and security gate deter car crooks, and luggage assistance from the staff ensures that customers can fill their suitcases with as much bronze bullion as they need. When passengers return, they simply board a shuttle at the airport and head back to be reunited with their chariots; if necessary, deflated tires and weary batteries will be treated to complimentary jump-starting and tire inflation.
From Atlanta to LA, Park 'N Fly keeps cars safe inside their secured quarters just a quick shuttle ride away from the nearest airport. To make taking a trip more convenient for travelers, they offer 24-hour shuttles that arrive every five minutes, valet parking, and luggage assistance, beyond giving their vehicles a safe place to stay. Their lots are gated, well lit, and monitored.
Working from two locations in Jacksonville, Gunner Tire's certified technicians help cars reach their maximum mileage with a range of maintenance and repair services. After performing free safety inspections, the team draws from a stockroom of top-brand tires by Michelin, Falken, and Cooper to outfit cars with the best spinners in every size. They confiscate dirty oil and replace it with standard or Mobile 1 premium fluids, and toss away dingy filters wrought with engine-clogging debris. While cars receive service, customers can lounge in shop's diner-like atmosphere, where black-and-white checkerboard floors and vintage red walls box in a coffee bar and fresh air saturated with complimentary WiFi.
Mike Mills and his team of technicians cater to every size and scope of roadster at Mills Automotive Care and Custom Detailing, where they perform treatments by hand. A basic hand wash is the jumping-off point for a fleet of detailing services that includes leather seat conditioning and polishing of chrome bumpers and rims. Technicians journey under the hood for engine detailing and minor auto repairs, and tint windows to keep dashboard hula girls from getting uneven tan lines.
The technicians behind First Impression Mobile Wash & Detail bring more than 15 years of collective experience—along with their own electricity, tools, water, and products—to each sullied chariot they polish. During their mobile detailing services, they wash vessels of land and sea by hand. Then, once exteriors are shiny and clean, they use clay bars to remove contaminants and protect autos from UV rays and oxidation. While waxing, technicians pitch tents to shield paint jobs from sunbeams and to see if someone might give them merit badges. When they aren't purifying greasy engines, removing scratches, and restoring foggy headlights, they’re steam-cleaning home carpets and power washing buildings with mechanical sprayers that remove grime, mold, and posters of despotic rulers.
The knowledgeable guides at TourTime lead groups of curious local gapers and touring out-of-towners throughout northern Florida, offering hearty doses of entertaining facts on the region’s sights and history along the way. The private three-hour Jacksonville tour—which culminates with beer and pretzel sampling at the Anheuser-Busch brewery—begins with verbal perambulations through the history of the area’s first inhabitants, the Timuquan, and their fabled offerings of alligator-skin piñatas to French and Spanish colonizers. Cruise the River City’s downtown to eye the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars before visiting the Riverside/Avondale area and Florida’s first condos—originally known as “house larvae”—along with several historical homes, such as the Leon Cheek residence and the Marble House, made from Georgia–quarried marble and actual marbles. Along the way, tour takers are treated to tales of the Great Fire of 1901 and views of notable landmarks such as the Memorial Wall.
