For more than two decades, Tint and Audio Express’s staffers have rolled up to driveways throughout the Fort Myers area to help vehicles hide what’s stashed in their back seats with tinted windows. In addition to the UV-ray-blocking film, which staffers can apply to windows on cars, boats, houses, and zeppelins, the mobile shop applies films to home windows to protect them during hurricanes. They can also affix front bumpers with a clear film, which invisibly wards off dings and scratches. Car audio equipment including satellite radios, iPod equipment, and subwoofers ensures that no one will be able to perform an a cappella rendition of Cats on your next road trip, and the techs can head indoors to install custom home-theater systems for enhanced movie nights.

Eager Beaver Car Wash's The Best service pampers transporters with an approximately 30-minute shine-restoring exterior wash and detailed interior degunking. Car caretakers ensure that carriages are cleaned from their hard exoskeletons to soft underbellies to mate-attracting rims before interior vacuuming and dusting removes all remnants of Cheerios explosions and land barnacles. Dashboard, console, door, and cup-holder conditioning returns auto interiors to a fresh-picked state, and windshields lose bug and dirt debris before welcoming a visibility-boosting treatment. After a tire shine matches trundling rubber to trendy patent-leather streets, a team of wash techs gives autos a final double-bond protectant and soft-cloth rubdown, assuring all the essential oils get absorbed into their thick skins. The Best car wash comes with a five-day exterior guarantee with a receipt, so cars found playing in motor oil can be hauled back for a free second wash.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle.

Thanks to a top-of-the-line window-tinting device, Tint Town's technicians can apply their tinted films to vehicles within 45 minutes.

After drivers pull up to Executive Valet Parking and hand over the car keys, they can hop on a shuttle bound for Fort Myers International Airport. Rather than waiting for the vehicle to fill up, shuttle drivers depart shortly after the first passengers take their seats. And on arrival, they assist passengers with any necessary luggage maneuvering. As the shuttle makes its rounds, valets park cars in their temporary spaces, where they can slumber peacefully beneath the watchful gaze of up-to-date video surveillance. If desired, technicians can also perform car-care services while owners are off enjoying their travels.
