Emerald City Window Tinting & Signs Inc outfits cars with custom-fitted window and head- and taillight tints. Each layer of self-adhesive polyester film absorbs or reflects sunlight to help prevent interiors from overheating, upholstery from fading, or blinkers from clouding. The shop also coats home and office glass with plain and decorative films, which can help reduce glare, regulate interior temperature, and keep shards from flying when windows are broken by errant laser pointers. A collection of customized signs, such as banners and vinyl stickers, rounds out Emerald City's services.
With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
KD Auto Detail's owner has spent more than 15 years scrubbing, polishing, and shampooing some 3,000 vehicles to a like-new shine. Today, KD's roving detailers continue to do the same, conveniently touching down in clients' driveways and parking spots for each service. The mobile technicians arrive armed with soap, wax, polish, and machine buffers, and proceed to reanimate cars buried under dirt and grime. Techs offer a number of packages to assuage all manner of muddiness, and also offer a make-your-own-detail service for cars that need special attention or never wash behind their ears. KD Auto Detail also cleans RVs and boats.
The guys who started GNNorthwest felt the need for speed—so much so that they opened a shop that specializes in it. They give rides a boost with turbo and supercharger applications so that they can make even the biggest tires or vintage Stone-Age rock wheels spin. Their 38 years of experience in the industry have also helped them hone their expertise in routine maintenance services, such timing belts and tune-ups.
The experts at Oil Can Henry's wear bow ties and newsboy hats, hinting at pleasant anachronism. Completing the effect of having stepped back in time, however, drivers remain in their cars, flipping open free newspapers as though they were in a mid-century service station. As Henry's knowledgeable technicians whip through oil changes, reviving autos with a lube job, fluid top-off, visual inspection, and other services, patrons look on via a video monitor. The close-up vantage point and tips from the workers help guests learn new things about their autos and not to be too grossed out to touch the headlights anymore.
A range of Castrol motor oils, each designed to meet unique driving conditions and vehicular needs, waits on shelves, and fuel additives give an additional boost. Within the sheltered bays, the crew provides further maintenance services such as cooling-system flushes and constructive criticism of homemade hood ornaments.
The trained, experienced technicians at Definitive Detail & Tint dole out a wide range of auto services aimed at refreshing wagons' interiors and exteriors. Each exterior wash ($39.99) is performed by hand, with wheels cleaned and tires dressed, and the interior clean ($39.99) sees the floor, seats, and trunk vacuumed and dashboards detailed. Customers can further pamper vehicles with add-on services such as leather conditioner ($45.94+), paint sealant ($79.95), headlight restoration ($49.99 for the pair), and windshield massages. Interior detailing ($159.99) provides a deep clean for cars’ insides, shampooing carpets and floor mats and scouring vents, instrument panels, and trim. During the roughly one-hour standard detail, waiting customers can entertain themselves by watching the shop’s flat-screen TV or using the free WiFi to update their newly beautified car's Facebook status to “single.”
