Laird Wheaton GM's skilled car cleansers wash, dry, and detail motor vehicles in an Insurance Corporation of British Columbia–accredited body shop. In the 30-minute VIP detailing package, techs hand wash, tickle, and telekinetically transport dirt off horseless chariots, then thoroughly dry the vehicle's exterior to reveal a shimmery glow. Vacuums invade interiors and suck up pesky pet hair, crumbs, and mud stuck to the floors and seating, and dust-targeting towels polish the dash and centre console. Finally, window washers expunge all smudges, dried bugs, and stained-glass portraits of Henry Ford from weary windshields.
Established in Vernon, BC, Kal Tire has six decades of service under its belt and more than 240 locations across Canada. The independent shop's many different brands of tires - including brands like Nokian, Michelin, and Bridgestone - keep cars, SUVs, semis, and even mining trucks running in all weather conditions. Its collection of shiny custom wheels brings class to once-drab jalopies. And its professional technicians keep highways safe and cars and trucks running smoothly by handling everything from routine air-pressure checks and alignments to brake-pad and shock replacements.
More than 140 Tirecraft shops have popped up across the country since Town & Country Tire bought Peters Tirecraft in 1990 and morphed into Tirecraft Auto Centre. One of those shops is Dumont Tirecraft & Auto Centre, which hatched as a tire center in 1991 and eventually grew into a mature garage that today offers a full list of maintenance services and supports local organizations such as the Sooke Fall Fair and the Sooke Legion. Inside, technicians ply their trade with everything from routine oil changes to wheel alignments and custom exhaust jobs, guaranteeing their work with a 90-day warranty and a car-shaped force field. And they still dabble in their original field of interest—tires—by outfitting passenger vehicles, ATVs, trucks, and other vehicles with treads from dealers such as Bridgestone and Cooper.
Helmed by owner Monte Graham, Great Canadian Oil Change's technicians keep domestic and foreign vehicles purring with a lineup of services that garnered them the "2009 Company of the Year" award from the Westshore Chamber of Commerce. Requiring no appointments, Graham's techs replace dirty old oil with conventional oil from brands such as Mobil or synthetic blends mixed by the world's most noted bartenders. They also check other necessary fluids and perform minor maintenance such as windshield-wiper replacement. After chariots gallop out of the shop, the staff sends all used oil, filters, and antifreeze off to licensed and bonded recycling companies.
