Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands–including their own Big O brand tires that are backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 480 locations, spanning 20 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer multi-point inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
Bradley Auto Center's expert car caretakers have kept autos happy and healthy with preventative maintenance for more than 25 years. During the service, which takes about 45 minutes, trained technicians will ensure your ride remains reliable by tickling every expired drop of oil from its underbelly and replacing it with freshly laundered conventional fluid. During the swap, the old filter makes way for a younger recruit; postop, vehicles receive a 24-point safety inspection to nip expensive repairs in the bud and confirm that all belts are fastened to the proper spark plugs.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Technicians at The Tint Shop coat car windows in Llumar Window Films, which block out 99% of the sun's UV rays. The two-hour treatment covers portals with an upgraded tinted film and can help to preserve upholstery, reduce glare, and enhance autos' aura of mystery by giving them a Secret Service code name. Backed by a lifetime warranty, films should last without cracking, bubbling, or fading. Removing old window tint requires an additional fee, as it forces stubborn cars to temporarily reveal what's driving them inside.
BumperDoc's shop managers oversee an experienced team of specialists who make it their mission to restore bruised and weathered autos to fine fettle. Bumper repair and dent removal address the damage from small fender benders; full-scale body repair helps vehicles recover after serious accidents or attacks by jilted horses. BumperDoc also treats cars to window tinting, detailing, and paint touchups. To prove their ability to the entire Internet, BumperDoc's staff has filled an online gallery with photos of their car-beautifying efforts.
The team of trusty mechanics at Meineke Car Care Center performs a slew of services seven days a week to keep autos running smoothly and efficiently. During the Preferred oil change, the shop's techs drain each motor-wagon's old, broken-down oil and replace it with 5 quarts of young, wide-eyed oil ready to undertake the task of protecting the car's hundreds of banging parts. Along with the oil change, the tires are rotated to prevent uneven wear, and the brakes receive a thorough inspection and a stern lecture. Prideful car owners can also up the ante by choosing the Supreme oil change, which includes the Preferred services plus a tire balancing. Customers can generally expect a clean 30–40 minutes of relaxed waiting time while Meineke's experts do all the dirty work.
