A Transporter Limo’s professional drivers carry passengers through the streets of the Bay Area in style. Chauffeurs take the wheel inside a range of vehicles, from all the glitz and glam of a Hummer stretch limo to the understated class of a luxury sedan or Scooby Doo Mystery Machine. The crew can scoop up riders from select areas across the Bay Area and take them on a one-way or round-trip journey to the airport, prom, or business meeting.
Family-owned and operated since 1983, EMC Collision nurses cars back to glowing health in a state-of-the-art three-acre facility and show room. With a thorough detailing service, dingy vehicles are scrubbed by hand, receive a clay bar treatment, and are lovingly waxed to a disco-ball level of shininess. Inside, carpets and mats reluctantly give in to a shampooing, and two separate vacuum passes suck up crumbs from never-delivered get-well-soon cakes. A leather treatment, tire shining, and a hand dry complete the ride-cleaning process. The second option includes a safety inspection –– all fluids, brakes, and the air filter are checked. Maverick tires are set straight using an advanced laser computer-alignment system, vehicular vitals are secured, and worrisome illuminations of the check-engine light are diagnosed as electrical problems or pathetic cries for attention.
For more than 30 years, Precision has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics whet engine appetites with a premium oil change with up to 5 quarts of oil, and then rotate tires to allow for an even distribution of wear and tear while on the road. The automotive pampering lasts about an hour, during which mechanics dispose of all waste and crumbs from half-eaten parking tickets stuck in the engine. Technicians conclude the ride renovation with a brake inspection to ensure effective stopping post-drive-away. After motor coaches have returned to their youthful, showroom condition, drivers can register for online service reminders, never again relying on their car's unreliable telepathy abilities.
