The owner of Bloomfield Auto Spa takes a hands-on approach to car care. On a 5,000-square-foot plot of secluded land, technicians pamper vehicles with high-end products and meticulous detailing services. Instead of soap and water, staffers use steam to clean carpets and extract grease, dirt, and odors from the fibers. Washes include a complimentary vacuum, wipedown of the interior, and cleaning of the windows, wheels, and tires. The crew also picks up and returns vehicles to and from homes, the golf course, or Matchbox carrying cases.
From its humble beginnings as an automotive glass store in Warren, Simbol Auto Glass has mushroomed into five locations. At the pentafecta of silica shops, techs unholster Sika brand products to eradicate windshield chips, and can outright replace cracked windshields in about one hour, or seven dog-hours. To keep sunlight from fading interiors, Simbol tints windows with Smoke film, which can reduce 4%–68% of transmitted light. Technicians also enhance cars with remote starters, alarms, and satellite radio.
At any given time, Two Guys and a Garage's shop might look more like a living automotive-history museum than a repair shop, as technicians tend to vehicles both classic and contemporary. Trained staff earns the trust of these automobiles' owners through a service-first approach that includes explaining repairs in plain language, instead of falling back on technical jargon or elaborate song and dance routines. The team of ASE-certified repair technicians uses name-brand parts to complete services, ranging from oil changes to engine replacements, and some jobs even come backed by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty. Should repairs require the car to book an extended stay in the garage, the staff offers a convenient shuttle service that ferries owners back to their home or place of work.
