Custom-made electric wash equipment eliminates harmful emissions as specialists wield biodegradable soaps to clarify each car's sullied spots while minimizing impact on the surrounding ecosystem. As powerful sprays of water release caked-on debris, a two-stage clarifier catches and treats every ounce of runoff, purifying the water for future scrub downs.

New Zealand based Jucy Rentals? lauded in Cond? Nast Traveler, the L.A Times, and the New York Times ? proves the adage that great things come in small packages. Exported to the U.S. in 2012, their cheery green minivans hit the road in disguise, appearing as humble, standard passenger vehicles with some storage on top and great paint jobs. Once stopped, however, they transform into a cozy campervan that sleeps up to four. Pop the container atop the van and pull down the ladder to enter the Penthouse, a roomy pod-tent.

A refrigerator, sink, and two gas cookers fill the trunk, a TV and DVD player folds down from the ceiling, and blinds allow for privacy as passengers weep for joy.

But what the process doesn't include is a sales pitch: since the facility is a test-only center, the staff doesn't try to sell owners on extra repairs, nor on gold watches conveniently located in a mechanic's trenchcoat.
