An open garage can attract many things—raccoons, neighbors, determined salesmen—but for Rodney Bruce it attracted dirty cars. Having worked at several dealerships since 1976, Bruce was familiar with a variety of detail techniques and could speak fluent Chevrolet. So in 2004, he decided to open a detail shop inside his two-car garage. Two successful years later, he moved his shop to its current and roomier location where he augments his detail services with hand washes and a repertoire of car-cleaning tools, including steam cleaners, orbiters, buffers, and 100% cotton terry-cloth towels.
Family owned and operated since 1954, A&A Royal Auto Trim stocks a garage full of deft mechanics and technicians who accessorize, clean, and upholster vehicles. Window tinters with more than 10 years of experience apply UV ray–deflecting film to portholes, and experienced detailers revive upholstery, upgrade electronics, and scrub auto bodies from inside a full-service shop. A&A Royal Auto Trim offers its services to all vehicular makes and models including classic cars, custom builds, and family-band tour buses.
All Seasons Car Wash & Detail Service Center inhabits an edifice built as a car-wash facility more than a half-century ago. When the All Seasons team moved in, it upgraded the facility with an automatic track and a wash system that gently spritzes cars with hot water, improving on the age-old method of burying them in snow and waiting for the snow to melt. The ultra-modern wash machine further luxuriates rides with optional upgrades including vacuuming, window cleaning, waxing, and underbelly scrubs. To finish the car wash, the track rolls sedans beneath an automatic dryer to wick away water droplets and mat down any windshield wipers with cowlicks. All Seasons’ auto experts also specialize in detailing services, such as shampooing, hand waxing, and buffing.
The cleaning crews at Mr. Clean-It have been sanitizing cars since 1946, wielding safe, biodegradable products in their hunt for filth on mobile sojourns or at their Olathe shop. During the 15- to 20-minute premium wash, technicians attentively evict dirt, smudges, and slobber from impatient bridge trolls from the car's outer shell and sniff out crumbs from seats, carpets, and ashtrays with an astute interior vacuum. An interior window wash clarifies the glass from the inside, and exterior-glass scrub downs clear away environmental residue and give the car a chance to release pent-up inner beauty.
Most people wait until their car develops an ecosystem in its wheel well before deciding it's time to clean it. Travel Clean won't judge you for your procrastination. Instead, the friendly staff will guide you into the car wash tunnel. All you'll have to do is relax while Travel Clean's massive army of Three Laws–compliant car-care robots wade into the mess and give your car a pristine cleaning while eerily chanting, "Wash, wax, restore." You won't have to get out of the car, ruin your suede shoes, or make small talk with the weird waiting room clown. While you do whatever one does in the privacy of a car wash, your car will get a refreshing undercarriage cleaning, and a Wheel Brite treatment to clean the dirt and break dust from your wheels.
The detail-oriented crew at Splish Splash Auto Wash tends to automobiles by blasting their underbodies and shining their tires by hand. In addition to cleaning, they provide detailing services and apply rust inhibitors and surface protectants, which help cars avoid potential future damages and the often-unkind words of children.
