Founded by service industry veterans Jim Lambert and Mark Walsh, Valley Coach of North Andover represents the culmination of the duo's careers as professional chauffeurs. Their insured fleet includes Lincoln Town Car sedans and Chevy Suburban SUVs, each serviced by manufacturer-certified technicians and capable of hauling up to three and six passengers, respectively. The vehicles whisk clients around the city for a wide range of transportation needs, including rides to the airport, business meetings, and assistance with bar crawls so that revelers don't have to rely on shoulder rides from policemen.
The staff members at RC Auto Detailing wave all models of car, truck, and SUV inside their family-owned detail shop. Equipped with spray wax, vacuums, and shampoo suds, they go through vehicles inside and out getting rid of gunk, road grime, and dirt. Their portfolio of services also includes window tinting and remote-starter installations.
At Clean Machine, pearls of water roll from newly gleaming fiberglass, and clean windows seem to sparkle in the sunshine. The crew there wields specialty waxes such as triple-foam polish, which restores surfaces to a mesmerizing luster, and sealer and clear guard help protect exteriors from the harmful UV rays emitted by the sun and most green vegetables. Vacuums purr in the shop’s bay, and a steam-cleaning unit leaves carpets clean and fluffy.
Rather than making clients come to them, All Cars Detailing's techs bring their professional cleaning kits directly to clients' vehicles. Working from any space with access to water and power, the mobile detailers banish grime from interiors and exteriors, purifying upholstery with vacuuming, steam cleaning, and leather conditioning, and carefully cleansing auto bodies with hand washing, clay bar treatments, and protective layers of pure carnauba wax. Wet sanding and plastic renewal add extra shine to exteriors, and engine detailing ensures every nook and cranny is spotless. The techs even go beyond automobiles, detailing boats and RVs as well.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, the family owned and operated Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to US EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Ray Lapointe stormed onto the auto industry scene in 1949 and was setting his own hours by 1965 when he founded Ray's Auto Service. Today, Ray's son and current owner, Mark, maintains and mends roadsters alongside a team of fellow ASE-certified technicians. Together, they perform restorative services, flushing sullied oil or transmission fluid and refreshing cooling systems with a draught of eco-friendly refrigerant, while shuttles or rental cars ferry patrons home or to the mall. When motors display disruptive behaviors, such as stalling or purring provocatively at semi trucks, the staff entrusts mechanical diagnoses to the computerized MODIS. The system poses a triple-pronged threat to vehicular maladies, using a lab ignition scope, digital volt ohm meter, and low- and high-amp current probes to record and analyze the electrical wavelengths that animate motors.
