The technicians at World's Best Detailing Center stand at the ready seven days a week to purify dirty cars with an arsenal of cleaners and shampoos. For cars that need a quick bath before a hot date with a radar gun, the repertoire of hand washes starts out at a basic towel-dry and ramps up to lavish autos with such treats as dash detailing, hand waxing, and complimentary oil tastings. Staffers also tackle larger projects with extensive interior and exterior detailing packages. On the inside, seats bask in a deep shampoo and leather and vinyl surfaces are left shiny and conditioned. Meanwhile, technicians use high-speed buffers to coax a brilliant shine from exterior paint, detail the chrome by hand, and delve into the engine compartment to evict excess grease.

While one driver commandeers the customer's vehicle and follows GPS-aided directions, the other follows closely. Once the customer's car is parked, locked, and read a bedtime story from the Kelley Blue Book, the keys are returned to their owner before the drivers head back to base.
