Since 1979, E F Tire and Auto Repair’s team of techs has restored vehicles to road worthiness with fresh sets of tires and deft repairs. Treads from manufacturers such as Bridgestone, Firestone, and Kelly keep wheels firmly attached to the road, fresh oil helps pistons pump smoothly, and diagnostic tests pinpoint the root problem with engines that only hum when the radio plays. While their cars are under reconstruction, patrons can still stay on the move with rides on the shop’s complimentary shuttle.
Simoniz's The Best exterior service pampers transporters with a shine-restoring exterior wash. Car caretakers ensure that carriages are completely cleaned, from their hard exoskeletons to soft underbellies to mate-attracting rims. Rid windshields of bug-and-dirt debris before applying a visibility-boosting treatment. After a tire shine matches trundling rubber to trendy patent-leather streets, a team of wash techs gives autos a final Double Bond protectant and autos go through a machine drying process, assuring all the essential oils get absorbed into their thick skins. As part of this deal, Groupon customers also receive $10 off an express detailing service ($44.99) during a future visit.
Premier Mobile Wash's mobile cleaners scrub down vehicles right at their home driveways, employing biodegradable products to buff out blemishes. After preparing the auto for its bath, the staff cleanse the car of muck and grime, then gently wipe it down with a towel. Next, a light clay bar slides across the car's surface to free contaminants from the paint, glass, and fiberglass, and a special compound removes any scratches that might frighten away cars of the opposite sex. To keep the exterior looking sharp, a high-speed polishing with carnauba wax ensures a long-lasting sheen, and a paint sealant protects autos from the dangers of a life on the road—from salt and flying rocks to flocks of aggressive keys—for at least one year. The cleaning staff conclude the car wash by tending to wheels, rims, and tires before rolling away to their next job.
The technicians at John Herbeck's Auto Repair bolster car performance by lubricating engines, inspecting vehicular health, and answering any questions the driver may have. During the oil change, mechanics confiscate sludgy oils and swap them for up to 5 quarts of top-grade conventional crude. Motor doctors then install a filter and ask the car to close its hood and cough. After a tire rotation has evenly distributed tread wear, the techs check tire pressure, top off liquids, and embark on a 22-point safety inspection. Finally, a consultation with a trained mechanic affords car-owners the opportunity to ask questions about performance, request advice on maintenance, or demand that objects in mirrors obey the laws of physics.
