The staff at Vickers Auto Rental and Repair knows that most people don’t have a contingency plan for when their cars break down. So, rather than let their clients fend for themselves when disaster strikes, the team offers short- and long-term car rentals to keep clients rolling until their own wheels are back on the road. This level of customer service epitomizes all of Vickers’ repair services, whether techs are simply aligning wheels or overhauling the transmission. Technicians can fix a range of foreign and domestic makes and models, allowing them to tackle most vehicles that are brought in for repairs or that are left in the lot after the qualifying round of a monster-truck derby.
When Frank Walsh joined the team at William Michael Automotive in 1987, the shop was a small, two-bay facility. Starting as a mechanic?s helper, Frank worked his way toward becoming an ASC-certified master technician and, almost a decade after his start, purchased William Michael Automotive with money he scrounged up from under his front seat. Today, Frank helms a team of ASE-certified techs that uses the latest diagnostic equipment and NAPA parts at eight bays to service the engines, tires, and transmissions of high-end makes and models, such as Audi, BMW, and Volkswagen, as well as newer Asian and domestic vehicles.

The Bay Limo’s freshly waxed and buffed town cars, limousines, and party buses lovingly embrace passengers with plush seats as their drivers safely escort travelers through the San Francisco metro area. The transport service reserves its vehicles in advance for special events—such as weddings, parties, and proms—and offers last-minute pickups when rides to the airport fall through because of new zoning restrictions for blimps. Their fleet also includes ritzier automobiles such as exotic cars and stretch limousines, which come outfitted with champagne, water, and an option to upgrade to a full backseat bar.
The taxis at Hybrid Cab Company might be yellow on the outside, but they are most certainly green on the inside. Every car in the entire fleet is a hybrid.
