Most great things have humble beginnings, and Express Oil Change & Tune-Up Clinic is no exception. In its 31-year history it grew to more than 170 locations across 10 states. Within these auto havens, ASE-certified vehicle-maintenance professionals slake engine thirsts with their signature 10-minute express full-service oil change and a menu of other automotive procedures. Techs swap out old oil for shiny, new oil and a new filter, followed by a thorough inspection of the engine and inner workings that ensures cars can run for miles and won’t fail during drag races through mall parking lots. Their service centers also perform general maintenance such as brake and AC service, and more advanced services such as radiator maintenance and computer diagnostics.
For more than 20 years, the certified technicians at DEKRA Emission Check have done one thing and done it well: superfast Georgia-state vehicle-emissions inspections. Although most patrons choose to stay in the car and alphabetize their eight-track collection during the typically five-minute inspection, many of the growing list of almost 30 Atlanta-area locations feature an indoor lounge for auto owners to kick back in. If a vehicle?s emissions exceed the regulated limit, the team advises drivers of their options and performs a free retest at a later date.
Since its creation in 1925, DEKRA Emission Check?s umbrella company, DEKRA, has grown to include more than 30,000 employees in 50 countries. In addition to having performed more than three million vehicle inspections in the United States, the larger business offers services such as expert appraisals, industrial product testing and certifications, and management-system certifications.
Speedemissions' technicians are actively rooting for all cars to pass and are invested in administering tests with integrity. Founded in 2001, they employ their 14 years of experience in vehicle emission testing at more than a dozen locations in the Atlanta area alone.
The ASE-certified mechanics at Express Oil Change and Service Center perform routine check-ups inside an eco-friendly facility where all used motor oil is lovingly recycled. During the 10-minute oil change, the technicians drain each vehicle of its worn-out vital fluids before infusing it with up to five quarts of regular Valvoline oil, ensuring that each piston moves as smoothly as a buttered snake. A new oil filter keeps contaminants away from delicate parts, and a 20-point safety inspection ensures that air filters, steering, and suspension are all functioning properly. The auto doctors will also top off fluids, check exterior lights for continued flashiness, carefully inspect the undercarriage, lubricate the chassis, and rotate the tires.
Express Oil Change and Service Center has spent more than three decades catering to the needs of man's best mechanical friend. In this time, it has managed to spread across 10 states, much like the Guinness Book of World Records's largest blanket, taking its no-pressure modus operandi and penchant for recycling oil to more than 170 locations. The shop's ASE–certified technicians ply their trade with a cybernetic hybrid of high-tech computerized equipment and old-fashioned friendliness, maintaining the optimum efficiency and safety of engines with thorough oil changes, tire rotations, and maintenance packages.
