Interstate All Battery Center leads the charge in power outposts, providing lifelong Texans and reserve-power road trippers with brand-new batteries for their trucks, cell phones, computers, and more. With a vast storehouse of more than 16,000 products, Interstate carries batteries for nearly every brand of laptop and PC, as well as a bevy of automotive batteries to restore sedans, coupes, and station wagons after a long night of headlight staring contests. Household powerables are also available, including 24-packs of Energizer AAs for bulk buyers, an Energizer 9V alkaline battery for metronomes possessed by surprisingly funky eighth notes, and one case of Lite Brite fuel, distilled from corn syrup and Olympic silver medals. Old used batteries find comfy retirement at Interstate’s recycling center, allowing their former owners and well-meaning grandchildren to rest easy.
Welcoming autos of all makes and models, the dealer-trained technicians at Tire MD help keep roadsters running with services backed by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty. They play suitor to cars' inner Cinderellas, slipping on different sizes of Michelin, BF Goodrich, and Continental tires till they find the perfect fit. Their car-care expertise reaches far beyond the realm of tires, touching engines, transmissions, air-conditioning systems, brakes, and even the recently discovered "battery."
Sullivan Brothers Service Center's three locations staff factory-trained technicians who bolster cars of all types with standard and synthetic oils. During each 45-minute service, the deft technicians drain spent fluids and replace them with conventional lubricants or high-performance synthetics, which urge the engine to perform better by crafting study cards of the owner's manual. The able technicians then eavesdrop on the car's components and assess their performance during a vehicle inspection, and conclude the service by shuffling the tire positions in order to equalize tread wear, prolong tire life, and give wheel wells some much-needed alone time. Customers who opt to leave their car for further service may hitch a ride on Sullivan Brothers' complimentary shuttle, which runs to the Kingston MBTA Commuter Rail System.
Smartwax Professional’s mobile detailing and reconditioning technicians come to you, ready to wash, wax, and shine your vehicle with Smartwax's own line of products. This includes their Eco Wash system, which produces no runoff and uses less than one quart of water per vehicle compared to the 98 gallons used by the average car wash. Technicians tend to cars with one of three detailing packages, which can be customized with services such as engine cleaning, enzyme-based deodorizing, and clay treatments for cars prone to acne.
Exceptional Auto Detailing's attentive technicians reinvent dirt-ridden cars with thorough washing, waxing, and shampooing performed inside a 1,800-square-foot facility. Agile techs scrub the car with soaps during the hand wash and wax, removing all signs of grime, tar, and dried toothpaste before hand-drying the shell, grooming the rims, and dressing the tires. The full-service detail commences on the inside as carpets and upholstery forfeit muck and mud to a steam cleaning, shampoo treatment, and Scotchgard application. Next, techs restore and preserve the dignity of leathers and detail the dashboard, instrument panels, and consoles, leaving surfaces clean enough to swear oaths on. After a hand wash, wax, and shampoo, the cleaners polish the exterior finish to remove minor scratches and oxidation and implement waffle pads to administer two coats of a polymer seal that heightens paint's glossy glow.
