Helmed by owner Monte Graham, Great Canadian Oil Change's technicians keep domestic and foreign vehicles purring with a lineup of services that garnered them the "2009 Company of the Year" award from the Westshore Chamber of Commerce. Requiring no appointments, Graham's techs replace dirty old oil with conventional oil from brands such as Mobil or synthetic blends mixed by the world's most noted bartenders. They also check other necessary fluids and perform minor maintenance such as windshield-wiper replacement. After chariots gallop out of the shop, the staff sends all used oil, filters, and antifreeze off to licensed and bonded recycling companies.
At City Discount Tires, mechanics treat vehicles of all kinds to tire changes, full-service repairs, and extensive detailing, leaving automobiles ready to face the rigours of the road with gleaming paint jobs and purring engines. They use Interstate Batteries to help cars, trucks, and ATVs stay charged. New and antique tires from brands such as Cooper, Hercules, Michelin, Uniroyal, and Excelsior keep wheels turning with trusty durability and stylish grace. A 90-day warranty backs these tires—if there's any kind of damage from road hazards such as cartoon banana peels, the technicians will replace the tire for free.
Owner Gary Preston has been taking care of local drivers for over twenty years. At Pennzoil EZ Lube, Gary and his staff treat travelers to their signature full service oil change while also managing fluids, filters, and fleet services. The speedy shop—winner of the WestShore Chamber of Commerce 2010 Environmental Leadership award—also primps roadsters using eco-friendly soaps, polishes, and a water-reclaiming, touchless car wash.
