The family behind Fletcher's Tire & Auto Service opened their first shop more than four decades ago. Today, they operate a total of 35 locations, working to provide automobiles throughout Arizona with expert service and lessons in honking etiquette. ASE-certified technicians keep cars running, rolling, and stopping smoothly with regular maintenance services. Oil changes come with a battery test and a tire rotation to ensure even wear and lend every tread equal squealing opportunities; most services are backed by warranties that start at 12 months and 12,000 miles. More than 15 brands of tires find themselves ably paired with appropriate chariots thanks to a convenient online tire-size guide, and computerized alignment services help improve gas mileage and safety.
When they founded Classic Car Spa, Jim Barrons and Tim Stocker wanted to build an oasis for road-weary vehicles, a place where cars could stop for revitalizing washes or regain lost performance with basic oil changes. Now scattered across locations in Phoenix and Tucson, the technicians carefully scrub away highway grime with lamb-wool mitts, rinse chassis with spot-free water, and wick away moisture with comically oversize blow dryers.
Shiny cars are a topic of conversation at family dinners for Jonathan Decker and Robert Budenbender. The cousins co-own Top Notch Mobile Auto Detailing, a service that brings cleaning equipment and tools to customer's homes or businesses to perform onsite mobile detailing for motorcycles, cars, RVs, boats, planes, and ferris-wheel stallions. In addition to hand-washing and applying paint sealants, the crew purges grime from interiors and exteriors with car-care products from Auto Magic, Optimum, and Meguiar's.
Dirty cars can pull up to any of Full Circle Autowash’s five locations for a full interior or exterior restoration. An automated wash tunnel doles out four car-wash packages, from a simple exterior wash and interior vacuum to the Platinum treatment, which includes sealer wax, interior-vinyl protection, and leather conditioning. Meanwhile, carnauba wax and clay bars give rides a deeper clean during interior and exterior detailing packages. In addition to sprucing up autos, the Full Circle team also arranges for windshield repairs, installs Solar Gard window film, and replaces old oil with fresh standard or high-mileage synthetic blends. While the team services cars, customers can head to the gift shop to get a snack or pick up a greeting card for their car.
At SSC Auto Repair, teams of tight-knit, hardworking mechanics extend the life of precious vehicles with expert technique. SSC’s technicians ply their trade with the backing of ASE master certification, ably repairing or maintaining customers’ second most costly investment after their multistory treehouse. A complimentary general safety inspection on each vehicle uncovers any hidden troubles, and free shuttle service within a 5-mile radius ferries customers to home, work, or appointments with ease. In addition to restoring engines from disrepair or treating cars to speedy routine maintenance, SSC Auto Repair manifests its commitment to the community through its relationships with Packages From Home and Salvation Army donation drives.
