For Robert Stokes Jr., making a vehicle shine like it did the day it left the assembly line isn't just a talent, but a family dedication passed on from generation to generation. His father first taught him the value of caring for an automobile, giving him the inspiration to open his own mobile auto-detailing service in 1995. Robert's down-to-earth approach to dealing with clients and his scrutinizing eye for detail helped his business grow into a full-service production with two physical locations. No vehicle is too big or too small for Robert?s crew at The Gift Auto Detailing Center; they have serviced everything from tiny coupes and honey-I-shrunk-the-station-wagons to speedboats and large storage trailers.
Since 1942, Leete Tire & Auto Center, Inc. has been fitting autos with new tires by brands including Michelin, BFGoodrich, Uniroyal, Continental, Toyo, and Goodyear. Though the family-owned tire shop's been around for well over half a century, it stays up-to-date by equipping its 10-bay garage with modern technologies, such as the Space Needle, which sews up cars or the moon after meteor collisions. In 1995, Leete Tire & Auto Center spawned another location in Richmond that features six bays capable of servicing passenger vehicles as well as light trucks. As NAPA AutoCare centers, both tire shops also enlist ASE-certified technicians trained to keep rides healthy. These skilled pros render maintenance services including state inspections, computerized alignments, and brake inspections.
Recognized throughout the area for their automotive know-how, the ASE-certified technicians at Tune Up Plus have been caring for and correcting wayward vehicles for more than 20 years. Their skill powers a wealth of services, from basic tune-ups and full-service oil changes to axle repairs and headlight restoration; they can also keep roadsters legit with state inspections and state-bird-shaped stickers. If the promise of Wynn's car-care products isn't enough to attract passing vehicles, Tune Up's technicians lure them off the road with free air-conditioning, engine-light, and brake inspections.
Green Clean Auto Wash locations help drivers scrub their buggies clean with automatic or self-serve washes. With trigger-controlled pressure pumps and non-toxic solvents and products, they also look out for Mother Nature, using up to 80% less water and recycling the runoff.
Freedom Wash operates three car wash facilities around Virginia, two of which are open 24/7. That means you never have to compromise your schedule in order to use one of the company's automatic car wash tunnels, self-service bays, vacuums, and other dirt-expunging tools. But regardless of when you visit, the company's tiered car wash services will allow you to customize your car's bath to its needs, whether it could benefit from rust inhibitor and RainX treatments, or just needs a basic sudsing, followed by a spot-free rinse. And, in addition to fragrance and air machines and carpet shampoos, each location also features rug beaters, which customers can use to help rid interior floors of dirt, pet hair, and any chocolates the car has been hoarding.
