Owner of Dents Unlimited, Marc LaFerriere, is a seasoned, Vale-certified technician with a special knack for paintless dent removal. Using a handful of tools, his trained staff pops out dents from the inside out, ridding vehicle exteriors of dings from hailstorms, car accidents, or errant shopping carts without the need for sloppy paint touchups. LaFerriere also specializes repairing damaged autos after major collisions, along with providing window tinting and glass repair. The 17,000-square-foot facility also has space for maintenance services such as oil changes, and a waiting area with wooden floors, leather couches, and kids’ toys. To promote exterior beauty, his will team paint vehicular bodies and seals them with paint protection film.
The technicians at Columbia Detailing keep all types of vehicles looking shiny and neat for months after each cleaning, shampooing interiors and buffing exteriors with 100% biodegradable products. Crews travel to clients' driveways or workplaces to lift stains from upholstery or shield paint jobs with polymer sealer—a product with better bonding qualities and a higher melting point than the traditional carnauba wax or candy-coated shell. They also tackle more specific auto-detailing needs, such as paintless dent removal, carpet dyeing, and headlight restoration. Columbia Detailing prides itself on its ability to spot-clean, wax, and restore nearly any type of craft, from boats and RVs to motorcycles.
Williams Enterprises installs window tinting and film to residents and businesses across the region. As part of the residential services, the team helps homeowners reduce their energy costs, eliminate excessive heat, and prevent interior furnishing from fading. In homes and businesses, 3M window film screens out up to 99.9% of UV rays.
Bryant Mobile Detailing's scrupulous technicians sanitize vehicles at the customer's location with hand mitts, Cyclo polisher, and Meguiar's wax. During the express detail, cars lounge comfortably in their parking spot, driveway, or massage chair as techs prep them with a pressure wash and then perform a hand washing with a gentle wash mitt and mild detergent. After a chamois dry, detailers direct compressed air into any crevices to clear away debris, then coat the exoskeleton with Cyclo polisher and Meguiar's wax, which guards the finish for up to 12 weeks. Next, they dress the tires and wheel wells with a high-silicone rubber and plastic dressing, and blast bits of dust from interior hiding spots with a compressed air gun before sending the car galloping happily down the road.
Columbia Mall Car Wash restores vehicles to pristine condition with its executive car-wash package, a multifaceted cleanse that takes a mere 20 minutes. Frisky autos can wag their tails with glee as the wash’s suds-slingers soak and hand-dry their exteriors and vacuum their carpets, floors, and seats. A clear-coat finish helps protect paint jobs from weathering, and a body-luster foam wax guards the car's shell against acid rain and even more acidic sunshine. Sealer wax helps lock in each car’s freshness and ocular appeal. Undercarriages receive a swabbing of their own to remove salt, plus an application of rust inhibitor to ward off corrosion.
