Each Francis and Sons Car Wash facility features skilled staffers who cleanse vehicles with biodegradable solutions and perform vehicle maintenance like caruba waxes and vinyl conditioning.

The expert technicians at ProTech AZ shroud automotive glass in American-made SunTek window films. Drivers can keep the sun from barging into their car with a two-window tint ($85), or cover an entire four-door car ($179) in stylish charcoal, blue, and bronze dyed metal films designed to repel scorching temperatures and conceal backseat texting. During the two-hour installation process, deft techs apply the heat-shrinking film to windows, encasing the car in a shield featuring optical clarity and a lifetime warranty. Customers who purchase the first option can also drive away in a clean car and take 20% off accessories.
