At each of its three locations, Auto Collision Solutions restores dusty and damaged autos and RVs to their former glory with thorough detailing treatments and a multistep restoration and repair process. As a direct repair shop, the esteemed business has earned the right to broker directly with insurance companies, handling all ordering, estimate writing, and repairs in a streamlined process, eliminating the need to wait for an adjuster or pay dues to the Worshipful Company of Insurance Middlemen. Technicians conduct a free estimate, and courtesy shuttles or rental cars whisk customers to home or work while licensed mechanics renew all makes of engines and auto bodies. Techs undo collision damage via a precise, computerized color-matching process before scrubbing up the inside, exterior, and tires with extensive detailing.
Continuing a 57-year legacy, the experienced mobile-electronics technicians at Al & Ed's Autosound equip car owners with safe driving solutions during two-hour hands-free Bluetooth installations. Armed with an extensive arsenal of adapters, the technicians integrate Parrot CK3000 Evolution Bluetooth units with existing audio systems, allowing calls to be heard through the vehicle's speakers. Any phone equipped with Bluetooth connectivity can sync with the handy hands-free device, regardless of manufacturer or carrier. Responding to voice commands from the driver, the unit conjures up contacts from its database of up to 150 names when called upon, much like a faithful robotic court wizard.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Motorists can treat their hacking and wheezing motorcar to a trio of oil changes at eOilChange.com's participating auto shops. During each 30-minute service, skilled technicians replace used motor oil with up to 6 quarts of standard engine juice and install a new oil filter to ensure vehicles' veins pump clean, contaminant-free oil. Most autos are welcome, save trucks that weigh more than one ton, and all three services must be performed on the same vehicle. Drivers have 365 days to use all three oil changes at a single location, which means cars won't need to suck fresh oil from vulnerable pump jacks for at least a year.
