Located a five-minute shuttle ride from Spokane International Airport, Diamond Park’N Jet's secure airport parking lot provides a home away from home for travelers' vehicles. Free shuttles service the lot seven days a week, 24 hours a day, and a staff member is always on hand to load luggage and give each traveler their complimentary newspaper and refreshments. Onsite security ensures that autos are protected, and free touchless car washes shine every vehicle so that returning motorists don’t daydream about the rentals they drove while vacationing. In addition to protecting cars while owners are in the skies, the lot also operates a "We Care" program, with staffers offering prompt assistance in the event of flat tires, dead batteries, empty gas tanks, or accidentally locked doors.
Trusted Detailing’s technicians have detailed everything from automobiles to Air Force One. Now, SAM 970—the first presidential jet—didn’t grace their garage. Rather, members of Trusted Detailing’s staff were selected to clean portions of the aircraft for the Museum of Flight’s Air Force One display at Boeing Field. Their assignment to this task speaks to their expertise, which is on display daily during an array of detailing services. They hand wash exteriors, buff out scratches, and use ozone generators to eliminate mold, odor, and bad attitude from vehicles. Mindful of the environment, the staff packs non-toxic and non-carcinogenic products, as well as No Rinse Wash & Shine, which can wash cars with less than two quarts of water.
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
Though they acknowledge that other automatic options may be quicker, the friendly staff at Inside-n-Out Handwash takes pride in the attentiveness with which they service each customer’s car. Their hands-on approach allows them to tailor their services to each car’s most sullied spots as they manually scrub, dry, vacuum, and wax headlights’ eyebrows. Inside-n-Out stocks only gentle cleaning products that augment an already environmentally friendly process, as it uses less water than at-home car washing. As an added service to the community, Inside-n-Out facilitates fundraising events with no upfront costs to the participating organization.
