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 Centers’ 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.
Elite Auto Glass’s mobile teams of certified technicians restore the good looks and structural integrity of vehicles with speedy on-location windshield repairs. Far more than just a buffer against tousled hair or the defenestration of toupees, the windshield defends passengers against injury during a collision by providing 45% of support for the cabin in a front-end crash, and 60% during a rollover. Techs take these sobering facts to heart as they dutifully replace or mend each customer’s canopy, using only original equipment manufacture or premium, aftermarket glass.
Sullivan Brothers Service Center's three locations staff factory-trained technicians who bolster cars of all types with standard and synthetic oils. During each 45-minute service, the deft technicians drain spent fluids and replace them with conventional lubricants or high-performance synthetics, which urge the engine to perform better by crafting study cards of the owner's manual. The able technicians then eavesdrop on the car's components and assess their performance during a vehicle inspection, and conclude the service by shuffling the tire positions in order to equalize tread wear, prolong tire life, and give wheel wells some much-needed alone time. Customers who opt to leave their car for further service may hitch a ride on Sullivan Brothers' complimentary shuttle, which runs to the Kingston MBTA Commuter Rail System.
Auto Number One's mechanics duck beneath cars during repair and maintenance services, looking to fix faulty engines and brakes, perform tune-ups, change oil filters, and align wheels with the stars. At the detailing shop, the techs wash, wax, and dry cars by hand, mend dents, and restore headlights. When vehicles need a makeover, drivers can browse the shop's selection of window tints, remote starters, alarm systems, and audio systems, or stroll through the rows of preowned vehicles and to see if any automotive aestheticians are hiding there.
