Beginning as a single shop in 1988, Racer Car Wash has expanded to include two additional Lubbock locations and continues to dole out soft-cloth washes and spot-free rinses. Vehicles can roll into the shop for a list of services from a quick Wash & Go to The Works, complete with polish, wax, tire dressing, and total-body protectant. Once cars are squeaky clean, staffers protect against streaks and spots with a towel dry and chickenpox vaccination.
Uneeda Wash and Detail Shop's express interior-detailing session keeps automotive interiors of all sizes hygienic and uncluttered. The detailing takes 30–60 minutes, depending on cabin size and the level of soiling—professional filth extractors scour every interior crevasse and cranny, including ashtrays, glove compartments, and mitten nooks. The team performs the full battery of grime exorcisms on scum-possessed interiors, swiping smudges away from windows, ridding floormats of dirt and other shoe detritus, and dusting the dash and panels, leaving vehicles completely riddled with spotlessness.
Windows open our lives to the world—sometimes to a bothersome degree. Whether to stop sun, escaping energy, or prying eyes, Tint World’s technicians can fortify windows of every kind with professional and durable tints. Homes and offices benefit from energy-saving exterior tints—which keep power bills low—along with designer films that add style and privacy to interior partitions. For cars, the shop’s precut tints come in colors from red to bronze and patterns ranging from cheetah prints to jets of flame. As the tints add personality to vehicles, they simultaneously block out UV rays, prevent interiors from overheating, and bolster drivers’ privacy more effectively than a blank nametag.
The auto shop also tends to vehicles with services beyond their namesake specialty. The technicians can slough away grime with detailing packages that can include extras such as clay-bar cleaning, dent and ding removal, and paint touchups. Alternatively, patrons can browse an array of stereos, subwoofers, and other mobile electronics as well as wheels and tires.
As a member of WaterSavers, a program that recognizes and celebrates car washes that follow eco-friendly practices, Quick Quack Car Wash upholds its pledge to the environment by using only 8 gallons of water, biodegradable shampoos, and acid-free, non-corrosive cleaning products for each wash. Cars can typically traverse the brushless wash in 5–15 minutes, leaving ample time to revel in the attention of soft cloths, undercarriage flushes, and Rain-X treatments that repel moisture accumulation and championship-worthy Gatorade bombings. Quick Quack's 48-hour rain check promises cars a free wash if it rains within 48 hours of their last visit. It also opens its services to community fundraising events.
What began as one glass-repair shop in 1962 grew exponentially into more than 300 locations that today comprise the Glass Doctor franchise. When the experienced techs at Glass Doctor of Lubbock aren't crafting custom shower doors, mirrors, and tabletops for homes, they spruce up and protect businesses with display cases, scratch-removal services, and windows that both resist breakage and make silly faces back at children who press their noses against them. Techs also rejuvenate careworn vehicles with auto-glass chip repairs and windshield replacements, which come backed by a 12-month guarantee.
