The full-service detailers at Bubble Bath Car Wash rid cars of dirt and road debris collected inside, outside, and beneath the hood. Meticulous polishing, pre-cleaning, and waxing services add shine to autos' public-facing personas, and slick sealants infused with Armor All or Teflon protect surfaces from scratches. Under the hood, staff members work to keep Blue Book values honest with detailed engine cleansings and viscous oil blends from Mobil and Pennzoil-Quaker State. Bubble Bath keeps customer convenience in mind with extended hours seven days a week, but closes on the eighth day for meetings of its Beatles discussion group.
Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.
A New York-based company, Whisk ferries New Yorkers around their beloved city—including rides from LaGuardia, JFK, and Newark airports and between distant boroughs. With its sleek mobile app, customers use a single finger tap to summon rides from drivers licensed by the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission. The app also allows customers to track and get in contact with drivers prior to pickup. Using your smartphone's GPS signal, the service determines your location and immediately dispatches the nearest trained chauffeurs. Whisk's rates generally fall within 10%–15% of a typical taxi fare, and passengers often ride in sleek Lincoln Town Cars, Mercedes-Benz sedans, and palanquins borne by bejeweled elephants.
Jay Leno and Ralph Lauren may each own a lot of cars, but their fleets are nothing compared to the number of vehicles Impark Parking must protect in a single day. The company operates more than 2,000 parking facilities in 34 cities throughout North America, from Atlanta to Baltimore to Winnipeg. That accounts for nearly half a million parking spots in total, a far cry from the single lot that Impark—then known as Imperial Parking—started out with. Today, more than 50 years later, it operates as a fully integrated company with expertise in garage management, carbon neutral practices, and recycling.
