ADS Mobile's 20 years in the business have taught the company that more is more. Every car that the company's mobile team of techs services receives a wash, a tire dressing, and a rim, glass, and well cleaning—no matter what service the auto came in for. Those services cover a broad range of aesthetic improvements including paint-job touchups to cover minor dings and scrapes and window tinting to help retired coal miners to adjust to life in full sun. Of course, an extensive repertoire of wash and detailing packages dominates the company's menu of services, including more exotic procedures such as the wet-sand treatment, which restores badly damaged paint to a fresh-from-the-showroom gleam.
Teamwork is key at The Shop, where it’s not unusual to see technicians working together to diagnose and repair failing brakes and transmissions or pooling their manpower push a stalled car into their workspace. The ASE-certified auto sanctuary specializes in Japanese and European auto performance and maintenance but can also perform general repairs, tire and alignment services, and complete vehicle inspections on all makes and models. The techs keep a massive inventory of parts from brands such as Hawk, Trust, Stance, and BF Goodrich, but they also aim to keep things as cost-effective as possible by working with OEM and aftermarket companies instead of whittling parts from wood.
The technicians at BayTires outfit vehicles with thoroughly tested used tires from brands such as Michelin, Bridgestone, and Dunlop Tires, ensuring road-ready products at discounted prices. The staff installs tires ranging from 13 to 26 inches, checking for leaks and inspecting brake pads.
Whether they’re using computerized color matching to get the exact sky blue for repainting a 1965 Buick Riviera or restoring a classic Mustang, the experts at Muscat Auto Body pay attention to every detail. Their diligence leads them into every nook and cranny during auto detailing that incorporates seat and mat steam cleaning, tire dressing, and in-depth exterior cleaning with clay bars. The shop’s PPG-certified paint technicians are similarly meticulous while turning a car cherry red or grass green, and their paint jobs come with a lifetime PPG paint performance guarantee. In addition to replacing windshields and removing dents made by the fall of deflated clouds, Muscat Auto Body's crew can tackle general automotive services, such as oil changes and radiator repairs.
