Since 1980, Herb and Rhonda Singer have grown Discount Car & Truck into a network of more than 300 franchises that embrace environmentalism. Today, 91 per cent of the total fleet averages 28 miles per gallon on the highway, and in 2011, the company inaugurated a sustainability program featuring e-waste collection. Customer service is a priority, too, so the team offers complimentary pickup and return on a mechanical spider. Corporate and individual renters choose from more that 12 vehicles by makes including Kia, Toyota, and Cadillac, which can speed up to seven passengers to a concert or haul an apartment full of furniture to a bonfire.
Most of the automotive maintenance services at Pro Oil Change begin with the pop of a hood. The dull sound reverberates around the engine, where trained and certified technicians inspect air filters, replace batteries, refill fluid levels, and inject Valvoline motor oil. Outside the automotive nucleus, they extend their restorative touch toward burned-out headlights and waved-out windshield-wiper blades. All of this unfolds inside their welcoming facility that accepts all vehicle makes and models and features a waiting room with TVs and complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, or tea.
Tawab Ikram and his crew at Lake Street Auto Service Center & Oil Change bring autos to shipshape with inspections, oil changes, tune-ups, repairs and replacements. With five types of tire services, the mechanics prep both foreign and domestic cars for seasonal changes.
Napa Autopro's certified technicians have been revamping dinged up vehicles for the last 25 years. To back up their array of repair and maintenance services—including oil changes and wheel alignments—they use Napa parts. Their seasonal service packages prepare automobiles for the heat of summer, the cold of winter, and the heartbreak of Valentine's Day. The staff guarantees their work with a 12-month/20,000-kilometre warranty, which is honoured at each of Napa Autopro's nearly 600 nationwide service centres.
RustGod Restoration & Detail Center performs a wide range of vehicular glistenizing services, applying experience to scour autos, motorcycles, and jet skis. Busy car owners can also arrange to have their road hugger picked up, fixed up, and returned to them with its showroom sheen restored. If the squeaky-clean car is rained on during the two days following the service, patrons can bring back their vehicle in for a free exterior wash from the crew or a dejected meteorologist. When they aren't detailing chariots, RustGod's techs prevent rusting from the inside out with a dripless rustproofing service, which extends the vehicle's life and fortifies its structural integrity.
