Detailing cars since the age of 15, Cameron Ford, owner of Polished Image, has spent the bulk of his life in the field of auto detailing. His years of vanquishing dust, debris, and grit from all manner of vehicles has elevated his standard of what a truly clean vehicle should look, smell, and feel like. Since 1986, Cameron and his team have worked to uphold this high standard at Polished Image, even as the detail and repair shop spread to new locations and expanded its menu of services to include windshield replacement, fixing chipped paint, and removing custard pie stains caused from cutting off clown cars.

The company’s hyper-specialization has also given birth to other consumer conveniences, including immediate post-test registration renewal at its Utah locations and onsite testing.
In business for more than 60 years, Little Garage revives exhausted cars and encourages them to continue pursuing the great American drive. The shop’s professional mechanics will first perform an oil change, with up to 5 quarts of fresh conventional oil and a new filter replacing each car's befouled fluids. They’ll also use their bunker-piercing vision to check all fluid levels, and lube up the chassis to make it easier to slip past trucks on narrow roads. A comprehensive state emission test and safety inspection follows, in which lights, brakes, belts, hoses, and landing gear are accounted for, ensuring that four-wheeled rovers are certified street legal for upcoming drag races and trips to the hammock store. To encourage wear and tear to distribute themselves evenly across tire surfaces, the Little Garage team will also rotate all four tires.

Bella Vie's photographers combine backgrounds in photography, graphic design, and interior design to deftly freeze time around stunning stances with their moment-capturing cameras. The migrating shutterbugs travel to clients' homes or locations of their choosing to create custom shoots unique to their personality. Each shoot can capture up to 10 subjects, perfect for individual profiles or complete family portraits. After their smile-snaring session, subjects peruse proofs uploaded to a password-protected gallery and a rights-released CD of up to 25 digitally enhanced images, a positive application of the technology used to plant soda ads in the background of Charlie Chaplin films. The best still will then be preserved in a more tangible medium in one 8"x10" or five 5"x7" prints. Combine a pair of Groupons for a two-hour session that also includes twice as many pictures. Shoots at locations outside of Salt Lake City, such as Utah and Davis counties, are subject to additional fees for mileage.
