Whenever a customer at Payless Airport Parking calls for a shuttle, it's guaranteed that the company's sleek, silver van will arrive to pick them up within 10 minutes. The parking service shuttles its customers to and from Philadelphia International Airport and ensures this prompt arrival whether the customer is waiting at the garage counter or just woke up from a power nap on the baggage-claim carousel. While their owners are away, cars are kept locked in a secure, gated area. During this time, staff technicians can keep each vehicle in top condition with hand washes, oil changes, and tire rotations. To aid those who have arrived in Philadelphia but haven't brought a car, Payless Airport Parking also operates a rental service. The service oversees eight vehicle makes and models, each of which are primed for pickup with a hand wash.

When the family-owned Weikel's Auto Repair opened in 1994, its ASE-certified technicians inspected cars in a cozy three-bay shop. As demand for their expertise grew, so did their need for space, machinery, and equipment. These days, in a roomier shop, ASE-certified master technician Steve Weikel and his team administer extensive services for all automotive systems and car makes, including hybrids. The crew aligns wheels and tires, ensures electrical wiring functions properly, and replaces brake pads and hoses, keeping any flowers growing on the driver's side properly watered. Weikel's crew also performs state safety and emissions inspections, outfits vehicles with Michelin or Bridgestone tires, and assists broken-down cars with 24/7 towing.
