Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
Chains have greater name recognition, but family-owned companies are more likely to have personal relationships with their customers. Or so says Dolphin Car Wash owner Dan LaFaver, who encourages his employees to get to know customers on a first-name basis. That’s not to say that the business shuns all major brands though; the certified staff works with Valvoline products during services, which include replenishing motor-oil reserves, upgrading windshield wipers, and brightening headlights. After any service, clients can use Dolphin’s fleet of free vacuums for additional cleanup or supplemental tickling.
Now celebrating one year in business, the family-owned A&C AutoWorks continues to welcome rides of all shapes and sizes into its garage for maintenance and detailing services. The shop’s trusted mechanics swiftly complete basic jobs, such as oil and filter changes, and also take on more time-consuming tasks, including complete restoration. Meanwhile, detailing technicians venture to a client’s home, office, or Barbie Dreamhouse to spruce up cars, trucks, motorcycles, and boats inside and out. In deference to Mother Nature, the techs use eco-friendly products and a water-saving reclamation system as they hand wash and dry exteriors. Additionally, the team spoils cars with extraspecial attention, including color sanding, water-spot or scratch removal, and buffing.

The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical system maintenance, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
