Established in Vernon, BC, Kal Tire has six decades of service under its belt and more than 240 locations across Canada. The independent shop's many different brands of tires - including brands like Nokian, Michelin, and Bridgestone - keep cars, SUVs, semis, and even mining trucks running in all weather conditions. Its collection of shiny custom wheels brings class to once-drab jalopies. And its professional technicians keep highways safe and cars and trucks running smoothly by handling everything from routine air-pressure checks and alignments to brake-pad and shock replacements.
Amazing Auto Care's nine detail packages run the gamut from quick brush-ups to extensive rejuvenation. No matter which package a customer chooses, every service begins with an in-depth hand wash so that detailers can remove the surface dirt, oil, and grease that clings to the car and causes an unfortunate adhesive effect during bumper-to-bumper traffic. Soft chamois cloths, carpet shampoos, and hand waxes also cameo during the meticulous treatments, and motorists have the option of having the paint buffed and waxed to a polished sheen, or having the engine shampooed and degreased.
From waxing to tinting, Pearl Auto Care caters to all car-care needs under one roof. Experienced detailers hand wash vehicles and preserve paint's lustre with Meguiar’s wax before vacuuming and wiping down interiors. Solar Gard films stop harmful UV rays from damaging upholstery and prevent leering bikers from making bobbleheads blush. The shop's technicians also outfit rides with sound, video and GPS systems by Clarion, JL Audio, and Viper.
Pearl Auto Care will also install remote car starters in vehicles to prevent having to dwell in biting cold of winter.
The staff at Stars4Cars focuses on three key service areas. They render full car washes, change the oil of vehicles, and protect them from the ravages of rust. The team can also detail the interior and exterior of cars. When they wash cars, they use lotions they describe as soft and mild, just like the best salsa or worst pro wrestlers. Check out the list of car-cleansing services here.
