Volco's trained specialists store tires when not in use and assist car owners in upgrading their wheels with new treads from brands such as Michelin and PIrelli. Customers roll into the shop with up to four tires, which the staff herds into storage aided by motorcycles dressed as sheepdogs in 30 minutes or less. For up to a year, tires rest comfortably in the heated, monitored, and insured facility. Customers can peruse a wide selection of high-quality tires by make and model. Pirelli P-Zero Nero All Season are each equipped with an asymmetric tread design aimed at optimal traction ($167.99+/tire). Falken Eurowinter HS439 tires employ a new silica compound to help vehicles mosey over snow and ice ($62.99+/tire); Michelin Energy Savers lower fuel consumption and elicit tears from neglected gas pumps ($149.99+/tire). Volco's team can install purchased tires for an additional fee ($12.50–$25/ tire, depending on size).
Too long of a drive. No car. A bunch of water is in the way. There are many situations in which regional flights are the most practical way to travel. To that end, Orca Airways' fleet of 18 small aircraft regularly travel between five airports along the Pacific Rim that serve Vancouver, Victoria, Parksville, Abbotsford, Tofino, Ucluelet, and Qualicum Beach. With large, cushy seats, their Piper Navajo Chieftains and Beechcraft King Airs zoom travellers through the air in relaxing comfort, like when Louis XIV was catapulted from Marseille to Paris in his throne. The flights are ideal for trips to business meetings or weekend vacations. Additionally, Orca charters its aircraft for travel throughout Canada and the United States.

Most auto-repair shops fail to list employee bios on their websites. Auto Repairs R "Wee" gladly provides background information about its crew of licensed technicians, or "car doctors."

After a free estimate, a technician takes into account an automobile's history and food allergies before diagnosing or treating the problem. Services range from small to large and include oil changes, wheel alignment, and CV-boot replacement. Free courtesy cars and a shuttle are available to customers, and all services are guaranteed.
