Careful car experts at A. Smith Autohaus provide hands-on services ranging from chip and scratch repair to precision auto washes. Those who opt for chip repair get a thorough, hour-long hood makeover ($89), including careful leveling of paint layers to ensure a uniform finish. After a paint match and hardened gloss coat, hoods look as smooth as the day they were born. A scratch repair ($45 per body panel) wet sands your land boat's battered flanks to smooth paint damage and then employs a five-stage polishing series. Paint and a clear coat are applied only to more serious scratches, and most services conclude after 30–45 minutes.

In the SGI-accredited body shop, certified technicians fiddle under the hood and beneath the undercarriage to restore and repair busted parts and systems, and enlist new software technology to track vehicles throughout the entire repair process. The Thrifty Car and Truck Rental shop lends drivers a temporary ride throughout lengthy repair services, or just to make an ungrateful Volvo jealous. Detailing crews and speedy automatic wash tunnels work at the on-site Auto Spa, using environmentally friendly cleaning solutions to gently wipe away dirt and muck without damaging paint. While rides relax with a bath, drivers can slip into the clean and comfortable waiting area to sip fresh coffee and watch a game on the 50-inch plasma TV.
The fastidious auto beautifiers at O’Brians return vehicles to showroom glamour with attention to every sullied surface. Four-wheeled patients spend three to four hours under the eagle eyes and condor hands of the O’Brians technicians, who wash cars and apply wax by hand. Soap and shampoo expel dirt from exteriors, windows, wiper blades, and upholstery, and a chamois and vacuum evict bugs, tar, and fugitive particles from trunks and interiors. Cars’ rubber quintuplets and their rims and wheel wells get a thorough cleaning, then a class-picture-day-worthy dress and trim. Compassionate machines aid in buffing and polishing exteriors to remove scratches, swirls, and paint with spotty back stories, replacing them with a glossy shine. Finally, jalopies’ extremities from vents to mirrors turn as spotless as the polished leather and vinyl within. The CAA service centre and auto franchise is one of the largest in Saskatchewan. Detailing is available by appointment or by signaling distress with notes on dusty windows. Though not included with today's Groupon, financing services are available for those looking to lease or buy a vehicle.
