A taxi can get you home, but not in your own car. The coachmen of Driverseat offer a suite of transportation services that not only take clients wherever they need to go, but do so in their own vehicles. Whether clients need a ride after a few drinks at the bar, chauffeuring services, or transportation for an elderly family member, the team arrives at a meet-up point and safely commandeers client vehicles wherever they need to go. The service even allows clients to book a pickup from home to the airport in their own vehicle, complete with a return pickup and drop-off.
GrandRiver and Hamilton CarShare's nonprofit co-op grants drivers a self-serve, environmentally conscious, and space-saving alternative to automotive ownership through occasional car rental on a pay-per-use basis. After their applications, Simple Plan members pay an additional hourly rate for actual drive time ($9), monthly insurance fees ($9), and refundable deposits. Located in central, easy-access lots in Waterloo, Kitchener, and Hamilton, drivers harness one of CarShare's 16 vehicles, for which gas, regular maintenance, and occasional time travel is included in the hourly rate. Drivers may reserve the closest car to their current location or choose their favourite four-wheeled steed, such as a Toyota Yaris or Mazda 5 via phone, Internet, or telepathy. GrandRiver and Hamilton CarShare plans to begin offering cargo vans and pickup trucks in the fall. Rental slots run as short as 30 minutes and as long as is necessary. Through promoting occasional car use, GrandRiver and Hamilton CarShare aims to encourage greater use of green transit modes such as public transit, cycling, and giant piggybacking.
For more than a decade, Blair’s Truck & Car Wash’s technicians have carefully eradicated grime from the interiors and exteriors of vehicles of all sizes. Local car dealerships outsource their cleaning tasks to the premium car wash, which spruces up vehicles before they’re re-leased, resold, or reassembled as a piece of modern art.
The deft technicians at Lube N Go Inc take great pride in the speed of their signature oil change, constantly chasing their own record of three minutes and twenty seconds. Technicians drain spent crude from the engine and pluck its replacement from row upon row of brand name motor oil. The eco-conscious experts also recycle all used oil and filters at no extra charge to the customer. At the full-service facility, technicians can also keep autos up to date on scheduled maintenance and align wheels to never veer to the side without first submitting the suggestion to an unbiased committee. While autos get straightened out, motorists can enjoy free beverages as they watch the flat-screen TV in the lounge.
