Capital Ford Lincoln spent more than 40 years serving customers under a different moniker—Percival Ford Lincoln—before deciding to migrate a few kilometres and transform into a brand-new 60,000-square-foot facility. Today, the dealership runs on the energy of dozens of sales professionals, business gurus, and service technicians, all helmed by general manager Cam Bottrell. This team proudly introduces the public to freshly quarried Fords and Lincolns as well as an inventory of used vehicles from manufacturers such as Ford, Chevrolet, and Buick. Capital's service department is massive, home to 35 bays and big enough to handle RVs and commercial trucks. Factory-trained and fluent in carspeak, the technicians who man the lifts and operate the automatic fluid dispensers take care of everything from basic oil changes to glass repair, body work, and inspections. Customers who decide not to head home in a shuttle or loaner car can hang out in the lounge, which features a fireplace, coffee, and even a movie theatre to help pass the time during repairs.
Universal Collision Centre welcomes vehicles into its 40,000-square-foot premises for everything from 10-minute car washes to bumper-to-bumper repairs. In the SGI-accredited body shop, certified technicians fiddle under the hood and beneath the undercarriage to restore and repair busted parts and systems, and enlist new software technology to track vehicles throughout the entire repair process. The Thrifty Car and Truck Rental shop lends drivers a temporary ride throughout lengthy repair services, or just to make an ungrateful Volvo jealous. Detailing crews and speedy automatic wash tunnels work at the on-site Auto Spa, using environmentally friendly cleaning solutions to gently wipe away dirt and muck without damaging paint. While rides relax with a bath, drivers can slip into the clean and comfortable waiting area to sip fresh coffee and watch a game on the 50-inch plasma TV.
Skyline Limousines' licensed, bonded, and insured drivers safely ferry wedding and corporate parties, nighttime revellers, and celebrating graduates in the luxury and comfort of a party bus, SUV, or limousine. The company takes its commitment to professionalism and safety seriously, with every chauffeur in its service enduring a rigorous screening and training process and seatbelt-buckling race before earning the right behind the wheel. The futuristic gleam of neon light dances across passengers' faces as they sip drinks from the wet bar, and travel to romantic dinners for two or lively nights on the town for up to 16. Party packages, such as the Day at the Beach or Spa Beauty Boot Camp, spice up special days and nights with events such as a pontoon boat party or bridal-shower makeover.
Behind the tinted windows of each of Mystique Limo's gleaming black limousines, plush carpeting and black leather line an interior spacious enough to comfortably fit 20 guests. Fibre-optic lights set into the ceiling illuminate polished wood and metal accents with sparks of ever-changing colour. Champagne flutes await filling with celebratory libations after the driver scoops up guests from the rendezvous point of their choice, spiriting them to a single special destination or helping them party-hop among a string of hip new book clubs.
Careful car experts at A. Smith Autohaus provide hands-on services ranging from chip and scratch repair to precision auto washes. Those who opt for chip repair get a thorough, hour-long hood makeover ($89), including careful leveling of paint layers to ensure a uniform finish. After a paint match and hardened gloss coat, hoods look as smooth as the day they were born. A scratch repair ($45 per body panel) wet sands your land boat's battered flanks to smooth paint damage and then employs a five-stage polishing series. Paint and a clear coat are applied only to more serious scratches, and most services conclude after 30–45 minutes.
Carpe Diem Limo Service ferries clients to and from destinations across the greater Saskatoon area in a fleet of luxury vehicles.
