The staff at AAA Auto Detail Center knows how much you paid for your car. Well, maybe not the exact price. But they do know that it was likely a large investment—too large a cost to let your buggy fall victim to the hazards of weather damage, tar, and rust. That's why the company's team of technicians stand by five days a week to ensure clients can work needed detailing and maintenance into their busy work, home, and hobby-blogging schedules.
Once your car is in the capable hands at AAA Auto Detail Center, which has received an A+ rating on BBB, the team's main goal is to restore the lustrous glow it had as it rolled off the assembly line. To that end, the staff of technicians provides interior and exterior detailing services, which include paint buffing and 3M Scotchgard protection. Through their host of services, staffers aim to bring cars from the brink of looking worn out to looking like they drank from the oilrig of eternal youth. The bodywork-savvy staff augments cars' brand-new glow with cosmetic enhancements such as window tinting with Llumar films and dent repairs.
Ron Carroll's fascination with helicopters began in Vietnam, when the aircraft transported him and his fellow infantry through the jungles to the front lines. Two Purple Hearts, nearly 20 years, and a stint in the publishing industry later, Carroll happened upon a copy of Flying magazine and his interest quickly rekindled. He continued with flying lessons, deepening his desire to become a helicopter pilot.
Today, Carroll possesses a Gold Seal CFI certification from the Federal Aviation Administration and helms a team of three pilots with more than 25,000 combined hours of flight experience. With a fleet comprising Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters—as well as a TruFlite H flight simulator that lets aspiring pilots practice operating a helicopter while singing and without leaving the ground—the team has trained throngs of airmen, including Governor Sonny Perdue.
At Ultra Car Wash, three minutes is all it takes to rid cars of dirt that may have taken months to amass. Conveyor belts move cars through automated wash tunnels while hearty doses of hot carnauba waxes, tri-foams, and Rain-X protectants lather the exterior and soft cloths wipe grime free. At the end of each wash, customers are privy to free self-serve vacuum stations, which they may use for as long as it takes to rid car interiors of crumbs, dirt, and discarded sandwich crusts. And, for added convenience, these facilities feature self-serve pay stations allowing drivers to pick and pay for a wash package without even leaving their cars.
American LubeFast proliferates the purring perfection of engines with diligent oil changes, greasing gas-gulpers with up to 5 quarts of Chevron motor oil and a new filter. Additional services aid in making the next road trip, grocery run, or demolition derby even smoother.
ASE-certified technicians inhabit each America's Service Station, where vehicles can say goodbye to sludgy liquids and adopt up to 5 quarts of clean oil. Oil changes also present four-wheelers with fresh filters to protect the engine from speaking before thinking. The fall-maintenance package increases auto health to compensate for imminently excessive raw-scarecrow consumption. The bundle opens with an oil-and-filter change before a tire rotation aims to redistribute tread wear and lengthen wheels' lives. Additionally, technicians service the cooling system and refill up to one gallon of coolant, then perform a 27-point inspection—a visual examination wherein perceptive car scholars confirm that lights, brakes, and batteries haven't broken down or proclaimed themselves luddites.
Mirror Finish Auto Wash restores cars’ flashy finishes with automated cleaning methods that won’t scratch or damage paint.
