At Rockwall Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, a sparkling line up of new and used cars, SUVs, and trucks gleams from rows of parking spaces. An expert staff leads prospective buyers in and around its plush interiors and the service department’s trained technicians set to work underneath hoods, lubing engines, remedying systems problems, and washing customers’ vehicles until they're indecipherable from their showroom brethren. An in-house parts department also answers auto deficiencies with replacement components that keep engines humming and stereos blaring audio-book bass drops.
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.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
Lube Pro Oil Change's technicians roll vehicles onto all-weather inspection bays to ensure autos stay in prime condition. Oil-change specialists can swiftly drain engines of weathered fluids and then refill them with motor oil concocted by brand-name manufacturers including Quaker State and Pennzoil. Drivers also steer their rides into the shop for other automotive services ranging from repairs to the replacement of novelty decals of tyrannosaurs on rear-view mirrors.
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.
