Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corporation, Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto-accessory-and-detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations across 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing, the Shrewsbury outpost enlists an experienced staff to care for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company's renowned rust inhibitors. Protecting cars inside and out, technicians also install accessories, such as remote car starters-alarm systems, window tint, trailer hitches, rhino-linings sprayed on truck bed-liners, and more.
Autobright Car Care uses top-of-the-line car-washing equipment to rid your car of pesky dirt and grime, leaving your ride looking slick and clean as the day it emerged from the womb of its motherly semi-truck. With the first deal, you’ll get a voucher good for five of Autobright’s extensive Gold carwash treatment, which includes an exterior carwash, a potent triple polish conditioner, a coating of clear protectant, a full undercarriage wash, and a powerful wheel brightener. Those hoping to give their badgerless carriage a world-class washing can choose the second deal, good for Autobright’s “The Best Detail" treatment. Autobright's car-cleaning virtuosos will buff out oxidation spots and give the car a thorough hand polish, and additionally apply a shine-enhancing hand glaze and hand wax. Carpets and upholstery will be vacuumed and shampooed with extractor, with vinyl and leather fixtures receiving a conditioning to give it a healthy, senator's-smile shine. Next comes the eradication of any leftover waste, with the dash, doorjambs, vents, and glass cleaned. The process finishes with a painstaking scrubbing of the wheels and arches, and finally the eviction of pesky road tar from its hideous-looking hiding spots.
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.
What began as a cleaning business more than 20 years ago has blossomed into Car Spa Detailing Center’s two full-scale locations, with Joe DeBarros at the helm since their inception. From its bases in Cambridge and the Natick Collection mall, a team of acute technicians conditions vehicles with a menu of services ranging from express details to all-out auto-spa detailing with hand washes and liquid Simonize waxes. They lovingly swab every nook and cranny of cars ranging in size from compacts to large SUVs, trucks, and vans, polishing the outside and leaving the façade wholesome enough to play Abraham Lincoln in Presidents' Day parades.
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.
