Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
Beginning as a single shop in 1988, Racer Car Wash has expanded to include two additional Lubbock locations and continues to dole out soft-cloth washes and spot-free rinses. Vehicles can roll into the shop for a list of services from a quick Wash & Go to The Works, complete with polish, wax, tire dressing, and total-body protectant. Once cars are squeaky clean, staffers protect against streaks and spots with a towel dry and chickenpox vaccination.
As a member of WaterSavers, a program that recognizes and celebrates car washes that follow eco-friendly practices, Quick Quack Car Wash upholds its pledge to the environment by using only 8 gallons of water, biodegradable shampoos, and acid-free, non-corrosive cleaning products for each wash. Cars can typically traverse the brushless wash in 5–15 minutes, leaving ample time to revel in the attention of soft cloths, undercarriage flushes, and Rain-X treatments that repel moisture accumulation and championship-worthy Gatorade bombings. Quick Quack's 48-hour rain check promises cars a free wash if it rains within 48 hours of their last visit. It also opens its services to community fundraising events.
From the outside, the innocuous MobileManCave.net looks like an average RV. Step inside, however, and the RV transforms into a roaming party vehicle, complete with a poker table, Xbox, Segways, and margarita machine. Guests can rent the party mobile for specific events, weekend trips, or entire weeks.
Windows open our lives to the world—sometimes to a bothersome degree. Whether to stop sun, escaping energy, or prying eyes, Tint World’s technicians can fortify windows of every kind with professional and durable tints. Homes and offices benefit from energy-saving exterior tints—which keep power bills low—along with designer films that add style and privacy to interior partitions. For cars, the shop’s precut tints come in colors from red to bronze and patterns ranging from cheetah prints to jets of flame. As the tints add personality to vehicles, they simultaneously block out UV rays, prevent interiors from overheating, and bolster drivers’ privacy more effectively than a blank nametag.
The auto shop also tends to vehicles with services beyond their namesake specialty. The technicians can slough away grime with detailing packages that can include extras such as clay-bar cleaning, dent and ding removal, and paint touchups. Alternatively, patrons can browse an array of stereos, subwoofers, and other mobile electronics as well as wheels and tires.
Caprock Dent Co. is an I-CAR-certified repair business that uses paintless dent removal (PDR) to restore damaged cars to their original state. Its technicians boast more than 20 years of experience and offer a lifetime guarantee on all their work. The PDR technique?ideal for minor dents or hail damage?does not require the use of fillers, solvents, or aftermarket paints to reverse dents in the body. Instead, a special tool applies pressure to the bottom of the dent, reshaping as it goes. The benefit of this is that the body is restored to its original state without any inconsistent paint colors or giant band-aids ruining the integrity of the car's original finish. As an added convenience to customers, Caprock Dent Co.'s technicians can also travel to the customer in order to perform the necessary repairs, or arrange rental cars or Uber rides while their car is in the shop.
