Most of the automotive-maintenance services at Pro Oil Change begin with the pop of a hood. The dull sound reverberates around the engine, where trained and certified technicians inspect air filters, replace batteries, refill fluid levels, and inject Valvoline motor oil. Outside the automotive nucleus, they extend their restorative touch toward burned-out headlights and waved-out windshield-wiper blades. All of this unfolds inside their welcoming facility, which accepts all vehicle makes and models and features a waiting room with TVs and complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, or tea.
What began as a small detail shop 15 years ago has expanded to become Goldwing Autocare, a tire specialist and detailing outfit that works to improve every automotive nook and cranny. Staff experts call on a national distribution network of suppliers to cobble cars with new sets of name-brand tires or luminous rims from a searchable database. Along with comprehensive detailing packages, skilled detailers can armour interior fabrics with a protective Scotchgard coat designed to reduce stains, or shampoo engines and all their connected parts with a sanitizing bubble bath. Technicians also fortify exteriors with UV-blocking Solar Gard window tinting and slather siding in Clearshield to enhance paint's glow and protect it during egg fights with other cars.
