For more than 20 years, GotCarWash.com has been providing unlimited car washes to customers nationwide through its innovative membership program. Online clients simply browse a list of locations—more than 90 in California alone—and sign up for unlimited cleanings at the most accessible one. But regardless of which location they choose, they can rest assured that their car will be bathed by professionals wielding only the highest quality cleaning products on the market. The teams strip away grime with biodegradable shampoos and cleansers, as well as top-notch formulas like a special closed-cell Envirosoft Foam, a cleansing foam designed not to scratch exteriors. The cleansing arsenal also includes products like ArmorAll Professional—which the crews have dubbed the "Cadillac of chemicals"—and Rain-X, both of which work to protect the car's finish from harsh environmental factors and any birds that decide to hold tap dance practice on its hood.
Forget a pail of water and a sponge. Las Posas Car Wash & Lube Center brings advanced Nanoskin equipment to the car-cleaning game: high-gloss dressing guns, air blow-dry devices, and state-of-the-art vacuum guns. Combine these top-of-the-line tools with the cleaning products themselves—triple foam rainbow wax, clear coat—and you've got the makings to destroy dirt and make your car glow like it did after acing its first emissions test. For cars that need even more attention, detailers delve deep into crevices, cracks, and vents, and employ orbital buffers and Meguiar's Yellow Tech Wax to thoroughly refresh interiors and exteriors. Not all creature comforts are geared towards cars here, though; an onsite store features a gelato bar, bistro, and Peet's Coffee for drivers to enjoy while they wait.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
