Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corporation, Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto-accessory-and-detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations across 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing, the Shrewsbury outpost enlists an experienced staff to care for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company's renowned rust inhibitors. Protecting cars inside and out, technicians also install accessories, such as remote car starters-alarm systems, window tint, trailer hitches, rhino-linings sprayed on truck bed-liners, and more.
Inside the fully-automated facilities at Pepin's Auto Wash, machines lave vehicles 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With today's deal, customers can select either the touchless wash, which uses high-pressure jets of water to cleanse vehicles, or the soft-touch wash, which banishes dirt with polishing brushes. In either case, a soapy undercarriage wash launders caked-on mud from the car's hard-to-reach belly, and a heated or tepid presoak loosens the grip of gluey sap deposits and toy cars clinging to the exterior out of admiration. Spurts of triple-foam polish restore the automobile's youthful luster, evoking the car's memories of carefree joy-riding and playing hooky from driver's ed. Two rinses eliminate all evidence of lather, and a translucent smear of double-bond Teflon shields outer surfaces from sticky particles of dust and grime.
CSN Auto Detail's technicians illuminate vehicles with hand-rendered cleaning services and manager-inspected results. During auto-bathing treatments such as the regular wash ride revampers swipe soft towels over car exoskeletons to eliminate road-acquired debris from exterior plating, tire rims, and racing parachutes. Technicians apply additional tire dressings before tackling untidy interiors with a thorough vacuuming, window cleaning, and dash dusting.
At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
What began as a cleaning business more than 20 years ago has blossomed into Car Spa Detailing Center’s two full-scale locations, with Joe DeBarros at the helm since their inception. From its bases in Cambridge and the Natick Collection mall, a team of acute technicians conditions vehicles with a menu of services ranging from express details to all-out auto-spa detailing with hand washes and liquid Simonize waxes. They lovingly swab every nook and cranny of cars ranging in size from compacts to large SUVs, trucks, and vans, polishing the outside and leaving the façade wholesome enough to play Abraham Lincoln in Presidents' Day parades.
