Everett Street Autoworks manages the needs of auto owners with the modern responsibilities of a green business. As an EcoBiz-certified establishment, the shop uses recycled anti-freeze when possible, recycles all their used oil filters, and utilizes only environmentally friendly degreasers for cleaning. Inside the 10,000-square-foot garage, a team of ASE-certified technicians tackles factory-scheduled maintenance, oil changes, or full-scale engine repairs. Located near the city’s light rail, Everett Street Autoworks offers patrons alternative commuting options including a free shuttle or pony.
The cordial car caretakers at Green Drop Garage respect cars, clients, and the environment as they refresh engine bellies with up to 5 quarts of re-refined and recycled motor oil. Green Drop's pedigreed oil uses 85% less energy to produce than standard crude and can be upgraded to diesel ($55+) and synthetic ($80+) solutions for an additional fee. After restoring engine oil, mechanics inspect cars' crucial mechanisms and report back to car owners with their findings. Together, the oil change and inspection last between 30 and 45 minutes, or the time it takes to figure out all of the anagrams for “Franklin Delano Roosevelt.”
Sometimes, it’s best to take a hands-off approach. The techs at Fantasy’s Car Wash take this advice to heart every time they come to work, delivering touch-free car washes that have earned their shops the “top car wash” designation in Omaha Magazine’s Best of Omaha contest every year since 2008. Cars cruise in and out of the automated wash tunnels at outposts spread throughout the state, with many locations also boasting filling centers for diesel fuel or propane.

After eight years of shining up rides across different Portland dealerships, Aaron Hunt opened his own shop in 2010, where he singlehandedly lavishes up to six cars with waxes, clay bars, and other treatments from Auto Magic and Meguiar's. Vacuums evict grime from carpets and seats, and soft cloths banish water spots left behind from drives through puddles or a selkie’s driveway. Hunt Auto Detail also protects paint and upholstery with warranty-backed Trident systems and deflects UV rays with tints and 3M Clear Shields, and calls in a paintless dent expert for ding repairs. Drivers can await their autos while flipping through magazines and sipping bottled water in a cozy front reception area.
The crew members at NW Mobile Car Detail & Canby Auto Detail pamper cars, boats, and RVs with thorough interior and exterior detailing services performed at the shop or on location. Cleansed by hand, vehicle parts including tires, seats, and windows gleam when touched up by the staff. Crew members are also certified to assist in helicopter and aircraft detailing, ready to remove smudges of smoggy particulate or the adhesive that keeps the clouds attached to the sky. At the end of any land-based vehicle's visit, the crew can shuttle the car back to the safety of its owner’s house.
