Supreme AutoBath's team of fully insured and trained detailers bathe dusty autos at any location within a 30-mile radius of the M2R 1Y7 postal code (addresses outside cost $15 extra). The mobile wash station uses fresh water for each scrub, keeping grills from cinematically spitting sudsy water in public. Seats, carpets, and mats receive a shampoo with the supreme interior wash, and leather gets a thorough cleaning and conditioning ($190). A basic exterior hand wash and protective wax prevents indignant hood ornaments from taking up residence on sparkling, pristine dashboards ($15).
From tune-ups to large-scale repairs, Imprint Automotive’s technicians bring decades of collective experience with them as they slide beneath undercarriages or dip into hoods. For cars that need a quick dose of lube, they’ll funnel in clean motor oil. They’ll rotate tires to keep cars on the straight and narrow, check the engine for mechanical trouble, and repair dangerous brake or fuel systems. And in case drivers need an extra boost of car-owner confidence, the technicians will perform full safety inspections to ensure the vehicle won’t break down or sneak out of the garage and elope with a gas pump.
Fresh water and soft foam flies through Cactus Car Wash’s 145-foot tunnel, which gently frees exteriors from dirt and grime using a combination of spinning brushes and touchless technology to avoid scratching paint. Designed to dole out a range of washes, the high-tech channel swiftly and effectively cleans cars from roof to underbelly, shining tires and sealing in newfound sparkle with a triple-foam wax. Drivers remain behind the wheel as cars move to the end of the line, where free self-serve vacuums await to suck up dirt and debris from seats and trunks. For interior jobs, a cleaning crew enlists old-fashioned elbow grease to shampoo floor mats and wipe down dashboards, and gladly chases away lumberjacks looking to steal pine-tree air-fresheners.
Just Like Perfection Inc.'s staff cleans and customizes automobiles from headlight to taillight. Inside their facility, the detoxifying humming of eco-friendly steam cleaners, the back-and-forth swishes of sponges, and the gentle whispers between wax and paint can be heard seven days a week. The same sounds call out from driveways and parking lots across the area as a mobile crew hauls cleaning supplies and equipment to clients' homes or offices to groom exteriors, launder interiors, and reapply lipstick to front bumpers. To further increase cars' appeal, the staff accessorizes them with headlight restorations, window tinting, and installations of alarms and remote-starter systems.
Car owners revitalize vehicular insides and outsides at Special Car Wash. Three types of car-wash packages cleanse doors and wheels with mild, environmentally friendly soaps before they receive a proper scrub down from automated brushes. A thorough rinsing performed by high-pressured water hoses leaves cars feeling as shiny and new as a toy baby doll. For extra care, detailing packages pamper car components from the paint job to the seat cushions. A hand wax both deep cleans and protects from damage done by UV rays or acid rain, and a shampoo rids seats and carpets of stains sown from spilt coffee or gyro meat grease.
What began in 1978 as founder Trevor Weflen's sole oil-change shop in Saskatoon has quickly spread across North America in the intervening years. Great Canadian Oil Change now operates at 51 locations throughout Canada, and even a distant outpost in the Bahamas, where friendly, well-trained techs speedily treat engines to signature 10-minute oil changes with Valvoline oil, recycling used materials into industrial grease and reprocessed steel. The mechanics also inspect and replace other vital fluids, from engine coolants and transmission fluids that keep parts operating smoothly to fresh-squeezed orange juice that gives empty cup holders a sense of purpose.
