More than 40 years ago, the doors to Fountain Car Wash & Lube's full-service car wash tunnel opened to reveal a slew of heavy bristle brushes. Since then, the tunnel has been refurbished with soft cloths, high-pressure water jets, mild cleaning detergents, clear-coat waxes, and touchless dryers that blow away any remaining water droplets before they attract thirsty cops. The car wash works in tandem with the detail shop, where seasoned technicians shampoo interiors and revivify paint jobs with biodegradable waxes, Rain-X, and Simoniz double-bond paint sealer. In 1995, the staff added a full-service lube shop, an authorized Valvoline Express Care outlet that features transmission flushes, tire rotations, oil changes, and complimentary checkups in between services.
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.
Xpress Shine Car Wash’s automated tunnel is designed to re-create the gentle touch of human hands—if human hands were able to wash an entire car in three minutes. As vehicles start along the 125-foot conveyor, a biodegradable, high-lubricity foam begins to break up dirt and grime. The eco-friendly system then deploys recycled, low-pressure water and strategically placed cloth ribbons made from spa robes in place of brushing, blasting, or harsh chemicals. Optional surface protectants and a powerful air-dryer array finish the process, after which drivers can use free high-powered vacuums to get the inside as clean as the outside.
Boasting numerous civic and environmental awards, Autobell Car Wash burnishes weather-beaten buggies with an array of services that restore lost luster while employing planet-friendly conservation policies.
Quick and comprehensive, the full-service wash includes a full interior and exterior cleansing in 15 minutes or less. A friendly car cleanser vacuums the inside before sluicing and scrubing the outside, finishing with a hand-administered wipe down. Windows, wheels, and tires also receive a treatment. Before unleashing sexy four-wheeled supermodels to twist and turn on the asphalt runways, Autobell guarantees satisfaction or they will rewash the automobile for free.
All Season's full-service washes and Valvoline lube services help keep motorized family members looking and feeling fresh all year long. Retain the value of your car's precious metal exterior by opting for three gold washes ($24.95 per wash), each of which will begin with a thorough bathing of your automobile's outer shell, wheels, and undercarriage to dislodge road grime and peasants. Next, a rust inhibitor will be applied to protect vulnerable areas against oxidation, while a clear-coat protectant and triple clear-coat treatment will leave the car's coat sleek, shiny, and safe from the elements. Once your car's casing is properly scrubbed and shimmered, technicians will hand dry the exterior and door jambs, apply tire dressing, wash the windows, and vacuum and dust the interior. An air freshener will then be added to conjure fond memories of when cars ran on repurposed Christmas trees instead of gasoline.
High-end products from Turtle Wax, Armor All, and Rain-X splash over autos at Minit Car Wash, where a comprehensive menu of soft-brush and hand-washing treatments have kept customers coming back since 1965. All-inclusive detailing services complement a quartet of speedy exterior washes that include a tire shine and wax treatment. Available for 20% of services purchased, a wash extension will duplicate your treatment if rain, mud, or a deluge of corporate sponsors defaces the professionally cleaned car within 72 hours of your initial wash.
