From the outside, the buses at Five Star Transportation Services exude class and restraint. The inside, however, presents a different story. From the neon green lights overhead to the checkerboard floors underfoot, the ambiance here is decidedly reminiscent of a dance club—the perfect setting for bachelor parties and group nights on the town.
Because the club scene may not be appropriate for many trips—such as airport transfers or weddings—Five Star Transportation has a number of more reserved vehicles in its fleet as well. These include 4-passenger town cars, 7-passenger vans, and 10-passenger stretch limousines, each of which drop passengers off at their destinations in class and style.
For more than a decade, Carpe Diem Limousine & Transportation’s team of fully trained chauffeurs has escorted clients through San Diego's streets efficiently and in style. The sleek, diverse fleet includes everything from Lincoln Town Cars to stretch Hummers to party buses that can seat up to 57 passengers. Along with safely transporting parties to wedding receptions or wineries, drivers can ferry travelers to and from the airport in luxury without risking sinking into the city's roads paved with caviar.
The mobile technicians at Blue Chip Auto & RV Detailing haul their grime-busting equipment to homes, offices, and parking lots to evict road-earned grime from autos, RVs, and trailers. Armed with trusted auto-mending products, technicians buff dust and dings off of outer shells and clean up cockpits with leather conditioners and blasts of upholstery-preserving Scotchgard. The cleaning crews roam the streets seven days a week, accepting appointments in advance of a midweek road trip or after a weekend drive through a pie-eating contest.
All cars eventually need to go into the shop for an oil change or repair, regardless of how many carrots the horses inside their engines eat. At Auto Clinic, experienced automotive technicians perform these routine and reparative services, boasting an ability to work on virtually all makes and models. In addition to regular maintenance, they can also diagnose odd noises and make repairs on engines, transmissions, and brakes.
Speed Car Wash tackles dirty bumpers and grimy undercarriages with a full-line of car-wash services. Treat road warriors to a deep clean with the Ultimate Full Service car wash package, which brandishes exteriors to treatments such as tire tidying, a triple foam polishing, an underbody rinse, and a 10-minute hand wax with up to 30 days of water-beading protection. Interiors luxuriate in a vacuuming, floor-mat shampoo, dust-bunny eradication, and inner dressings for elegant car proms. For carriages covered in only a few layers of gunk, choose the Gold Full Service Car Wash which shakes off spotty messes, slathers chassis in a polishing coat of shine, and soothes away lingering images of muddy cleats with a soft-towel hand-dry ($15.95).
Stars and Stripes Car Wash's White package incorporates biodegradable Blue Coral foams, sealer waxes, and hand-powered soft towels into each auto grooming. The session, lasting 5–10 minutes, commences with a Blue Coral foam treatment, in which cars forfeit their streaks and spots and emerge from the bath without any residual finger wrinkles. Next, a technician applies sealer wax that clasps the newly minted shine tightly to the shell, followed by an armoring layer of clear-coat protectants that extract a sparkling gloss and protect the finish. Blasts of water loosen, liquefy, and dispel clingy grease and grime layers from the undercarriage, and the exterior sides of windows renew their transparency after a cleaning. Technicians gently dry vehicles using hand-powered soft, cloth towels, and point customers to the free vacuum station, where they can brandish suction to hunt down crumbs in their car or add another inch to their pompadour.
