At The Detailer, owners Matt and Brandi Snedden draw on more than 24 years of auto-industry experience to meet drivers’ cosmetic car needs. Performing a comprehensive menu of detailing services, the specialized technicians take care to hand wash paint and use chamois to delicately dry droplets like a concerned pet owner catching its lizard’s tears. The expert staff includes two paint-and-body specialists who handle aesthetic requests such as paint correction and restoration, as well as an audio/video technician who installs high-tech upgrades, including GPS navigation and remote car starters.

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 package, 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—all of which 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 offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. 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.
The ASE-certified technicians at Express Oil Change prompt beaming grill grins from vehicles and their people partners with a revved-up array of automotive services. The approximately 10-minute oil change rapidly bestows clogged-up jalopy engines with up to five quarts of lubricating liquid, as well as a filter replacement, a chassis lubrication, a safety check of exterior lights, and inspections of the steering, the suspension, and the undercarriage. Wheels stolen from song-extolled buses are kept melodically turning with a tire rotation and balance, helping to ensure even wear and tear on all rubber road donuts. Should the subsequent safety inspection uncover any pressing mechanical issues, such as a malfunctioning headlight or an unfashionable belt, repairs endeavored on the same day of your deal redemption may be tackled with Express Oil Change's extensive four-wheeler wisdom and a 10% discount.
