From maintenance to custom reconditioning, Sunshine Auto Detailing and Cleaning tends to vehicles with an emphasis on meticulous handiwork. The shop's deft crew keeps cars purring with oil changes and tire rotations, and renovation techs can install ride-enhancing electronics or backseat saunas. The shop can also aesthetically customize motorcycles to match owner specifications or a beloved Micro Machine.
So Fresh & So Clean's staff offers cars, trucks, bikes, boats, airplanes, and motorized bathtubs the soft lamb's-wool mitts and chamois cloths they need to look sharp on any highway or parking lot. Their services—available both onsite and via mobile wash units that can hit the roads 24 hours a day—include auto reconditioning, ozone treatments, hand car washes, and complete showroom details. To attract even the busiest drivers, the doors stay open at most locations from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.
The experienced technicians at Elite Tint N Detail help vehicles achieve a factory-fresh look with auto-detailing services incorporating brand-name products such as Meguiars, Menzerna, and 3M. The mini detail uses a one-step machine-polish and hand-application of carnauba wax to combat minor blemishes and restore paint luster. Like an android-family dentist, specialists open cars' hoods to rinse, scrub, and dress engine bays, resulting in a motor-mouth worth showing off. This option, which lasts 3.5–5 hours, also includes an interior shampoo treatment, which lathers carpeted floor mats, seats, and trunks with suds to treat pesky stains resulting from an ill-advised decision to let Gumby drive the car over the summer.
Every car is different, but they all look good after a fresh wash. The technicians at South Beach Auto Spa keep that in mind, delivering expert detailing services while taking the extra steps needed to protect vehicles. On top of traditional hand wash and wax services, the staff offers three- and five-stage polishing that buffs out nicks, scratches, water spots, or hood paintings of Princess Leia. Techs even use different wash sponges on the wheels than on the body, ensuring that sponges don't pick up the brake dust that can scratch a car's paint finish.
One of only a few local shops lucky enough to carry 3M products, South Beach Auto Spa also protects auto interiors with tint-installation services. Customers can gauge the potential appearance of different tinting films through a simulator, opting for color-stable, crystalline, or premium films. All tinting films are digitally cut using software and a Roland plotter, and help fend off UV rays and adverse temperatures while increasing each auto's security and appearance.
At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
