For nine years, the car buffs at Luxury Detail have maintained local automobiles of all kinds with meticulous detailing, restoration, painting, and repair. After gaining a reputation for its painstaking care and knowledge of luxury and unusual models, the family-owned shop expanded to a second location, now operating two shops in San Carlos and Sacramento. Standard car washes and detailing rely on eco-friendly products and the human touch, which allows for gentler and more precise attention to smudges and grime. Full detailing services even conclude with a q-tip finish to ensure sparkling perfection in the giant metal ears of every car, boat, and motorcycle. Window tinting, paint-less dent removal, and ClearBra paint protection further enhance modes of transit, and complete restoration allows the team to lovingly rescue rare coaches before releasing them back into their natural habitat of the bumper-car rink.
The cleaning technicians at Technic Auto Center spruce up vehicles inside and out without shedding a single drop of water. The team uses environmentally friendly products, organic compounds, and a waterless wash system during each of their interior and exterior detailing packages. The waterless system captures and lifts dirt particles from the vehicle’s surface, allowing soft cloths to sweep in and remove the debris without scratching the paint or wiping off the car's smirk. Technic Auto Center also offers services such as headlight restoration, paint sealant, and sap removal at à la carte rates.
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.
Committed to keeping cars clean with two-thirds less water than traditional or home washes, Harv's Car Wash delivers eco-friendly car washing that earned the company awards from the Bay Area Green Business Program and Sacramento Area Sustainable Businesses. Reclaimed water undergoes multiple stages of cleaning and proper disposal to meet the standard of water and energy audits. Similarly, the car wash’s brushes and turbo jet dryers are designed to circumvent the finish-damaging effects of home hand washing. Shoe shines are available on premises for customers waiting for their cars.
The family behind SCR Automotive recognizes how needy cars can be and built a service center designed to pacify even the most codependent chariots. Offering bodywork, mechanic services, detailing, and classic-car restoration, SCR's 20,000-square-foot facility bustles with activity. Five cross-trained technicians maneuver between 27 different workstations, changing oil, rotating tires, erasing dings and scratches, and banishing dust on consoles to the atmosphere of Pluto.
