With more than 40 years of combined experience in managing service stations, the Daggle family recognized an opportunity to help the community where others saw only disrepair. After purchasing Columbia Car Wash, the family renovated the property, adding a full-service wash center with a highly efficient 90-foot bay. The Daggles have remained committed to eco-friendly practices, including water and energy conservation and biodegradable cleaning agents. The station is open year-round, relieving exteriors of road salt in the winter, pollen in the spring, and the remnants of cars' Halloween makeup in the fall.
Staffers can put finishing touches, such as a towel dry and tire shine, on the soaking, cleaning, and clear-coat and surface protection performed by the automated bay. In addition to washes and interior and exterior detailing at the wash center, an adjacent tire and auto-care facility offers Maryland state emissions inspecions and a variety of automotive services.

Technicians educate patrons on each service performed, and the center's eCustomer program stocks noggins with essential automobile information. Advance Auto Care and Tire Center also backs up parts and services with a 12-month or 12,000-mile warranty to ensure that newly smooth rides stay cruising during long road trips or motorized reenactments of the Olympic hurdles.

Go Dentless's factory-authorized technicians help vehicles regain youthful looks with a wide array of services, including paintless dent removal, and scuff and scratch removal.

The technique fixes most dents in less than 30 minutes and costs significantly less than traditional-body-shop rates.
A & J Automotive Repair and Fleet Services' 8,500-square-foot facility houses a four-man team of ASE-certified technicians who keep vehicles of all makes and models running smoothly and looking fresh. After hoisting automobiles up on a dedicated service bay or titanium chopsticks, mechanics swiftly sap engines of soiled engine juice, and refill reservoirs with up to five quarts of standard motor oil. The experienced techs also install a new oil filter, inspect all fluid levels, and lube undercarriages during the oil change, then go above and beyond the lube-job call of duty by spoiling horseless chariots with an exterior car wash and interior vacuuming. According to the latest research, customers can expect to make their way out of the shop in 30 to 60 minutes.
Evolution Auto Care's buggy bathers wash, wax, and vacuum filthy cars inside and out during a two-hour dirt-purging session. Soaps pluck bonded gunk from the frames during the initial body wash, which eliminates grime and fudge stains left by flirtatious ice-cream trucks. Technicians then shroud the auto's body in wax, cajoling the original showroom shine to emerge glossy and radiant and clean wheels to sweep mud and dust from the rubber and rims. Once the exterior is bathed, technicians hop inside to interrogate cushions, crevices, and floors with a vacuum, which evicts fallen crumbs and leaves interior surfaces clean and ready to carry equally clean cargo.
