Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
With more than 40 years of combined experience in managing service stations, the Daggle family recognized an opportunity to help the community where others saw only disrepair. After purchasing Columbia Car Wash, the family renovated the property, adding a full-service wash center with a highly efficient 90-foot bay. The Daggles have remained committed to eco-friendly practices, including water and energy conservation and biodegradable cleaning agents. The station is open year-round, relieving exteriors of road salt in the winter, pollen in the spring, and the remnants of cars' Halloween makeup in the fall.
Staffers can put finishing touches, such as a towel dry and tire shine, on the soaking, cleaning, and clear-coat and surface protection performed by the automated bay. In addition to washes and interior and exterior detailing at the wash center, an adjacent tire and auto-care facility offers Maryland state emissions inspecions and a variety of automotive services.
For more than 45 years, Shall-Martin Garage Inc. has been retooling vehicles with an emphasis on honest and transparent customer-employee relationships. Shall-Martin's technicians foster their clients by doting on all kinds of vehicle makes and models with services that include routine inspections, emissions testing, and extensive bodywork, but never pressure drivers into additional work such as converting the trunk into a small public library. A shuttle service and a series of online instructional videos augment the garage’s list of conveniences, as does a complimentary exhaust-flavored lollipop included with each service.
