If not repaired, these chips can spread into cracks, impairing vision and weakening the glass' structure. American Glass Repair quickly and conveniently takes care of such problems. Brandishing professional Delta Kits—the ne plus ultra of windshield repair—, technicians travel to clients to fill each chip with resin, harden it with UV light, and sand away any excess to leave glass structurally in good condition.

Segway of Oakland harbors a fleet of off-road Segway x2s and street-friendly Segway i2s, which renters mount for city tours, lessons, and offsite events. Both tours and lessons begin with a video overview of segway basics to acquaint the rider and the ridden. Tours then traverse the city, with guides sharing historical tidbits on Oakland’s oak-ruled past on a route that hits Jack London Square, the downtown sector, and the shores of Lake Merritt. Group lessons jet through skill-building exercises in parking lots and on bike paths. After building confidence, students graduate to higher speeds and more varied terrains, such as bridges and grassy fields, and lessons culminate in an independent ride. Segway of Oakland can also enrich team-building events for companies or exceptionally competitive families with segway demonstrations.
The mobile technicians from Help My Headlights eschew quick-fix methods when they nurture polycarbonate plastic headlights back to crystal-clear health. Unlike older glass lenses, modern versions can oxidize when exposed to UV rays, pollution, rain, and the bottom of the Mariana Trench, so simple wipe-off treatments won’t produce lasting results. Techs start the meticulous process by taping around the headlight to protect the car's paint. They then treat the headlights before wet sanding the lens to excavate the clear plastic from behind the oxidized surface. They conclude the service by buffing, polishing, and covering the translucent lens with protective coatings.
The technicians at West Oakland Tires and Repairs work hard to keep a car healthy, popping its hood to check the engine and lifting it up for a look at the underbelly.

For cars unable to make it to the garage under their own power, they offer pickup service.
