Cars roll in cruddy and roll out gleaming at Dean’s Auto Shine, which anchors its nearly 30-year legacy on expert hand washes and thorough detailing services. And it’s not just cars that get the Dean’s treatment; the shop’s seasoned staff applies their detailing prowess to boats, motorcycles, and RVs, as well as aircrafts defaced by UFO tractor beams. Custom-tailored detailing caters to a car’s interior and exterior, prolonging the life of autos in conjunction with rustproofing services and the removal of paint oxidation and paint swirls. Courtesy pick-up and delivery of autos is available to and from a customer’s home, place of work, or demolition derby.
For the nearly two decades, Shine Master’s auto-finish and tinting specialists have beautified the cars of local customers and auto dealers with exterior restorations, window cleaning, and all-over details. The skilled technicians ply their trades across a range of cosmetic and protective auto procedures, extending the life of paint jobs and undercarriages with thorough rustproofing, or gently working out dents caused by errant rocks or gangs of delinquent shopping carts. Speedliner material lines truck beds with a sturdy shielding in 18 different colours, and detailing packages wash away blemishes from mud and road salts and add glossy sheens with high-speed wax polishers.
Steve's Auto Shine’s meticulous detailing crew, overseen by owner Steve Farrell, leaves harsh automatic car-washing systems by the wayside in favour of the delicate hand washes of yesteryear. The hawk-eyed team hunts down dirt speckles and smudges on all makes and models with thorough detailing packages that cleanse horseless carriages from the inside out. Their arsenal of cleaning and protective solvents includes Teflon paint protector that shields auto exoskeletons from scratches and bites from Ford Pintos, as well as Scotchgard sprays that stave off stains on car seats and carpets.
Behind Riverside Auto Spa's green-and-orange tiled facade, automated wash equipment and technicians armed with soft cloths spruce up vehicles of all kinds. Four wash packages launder car exteriors and shine up surfaces with cherry wax. Staffers also step inside to detail dashes and condition leather, lift hoods to shampoo engines, or polish exteriors with Swissvax wax, which comes from the legendary wax deposits located on the Matterhorn. Some services are viewable in real time through an online camera, which streams throughout business hours.
The staff at Ezee Wheelz treats cars to ensure autos trundle smoothly through all seasons with meticulous inspections and auto services. During an oil change, certified mechanics replace old oil with up to 5 litres of fresh-faced conventional fluid, straight from lubricant college and ready to take on the heat, dust, and incredible pressures of today's high-octane internal combustion world. Clients can upgrade to synthetic fluid for an additional cost. Techs aim eagle eyes at the vehicle's functional parts in a 21-point inspection to prevent problems with safety and operational systems and to evict raccoons disguised as pistons.
UniglassPlus/Ziebart's certified glass techs de-ding windshields and replace those that can't be repaired with professional ease and quality customer service. If hail, kicked-up gravel, or pennies tossed from airplane windows have put a chip or crack in the breeze shield, the glass shop's experts can repair it to prevent further damage. Different types of chips in the glass such as a surface crack, bullseye, and half moon are prone to splintering into uglier, more serious damage, but can be fixed in about 30 minutes. When the windshield is beyond repair, UniglassPlus/Ziebart can replace it with a shiny new one ($299+) crafted only from first-class quality auto glass enhanced with superior urethanes that meet or surpass Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. UniglassPlus will not replace the vehicle's gust guard if repair is an option, and will recycle all windshields by donating them to research for space cars.
