From its humble beginnings as an automotive glass store in Warren, Simbol Auto Glass has mushroomed into five locations. At the pentafecta of silica shops, techs unholster Sika brand products to eradicate windshield chips, and can outright replace cracked windshields in about one hour, or seven dog-hours. To keep sunlight from fading interiors, Simbol tints windows with Smoke film, which can reduce 4%–68% of transmitted light. Technicians also enhance cars with remote starters, alarms, and satellite radio.
From the spot-eliminating snuggle of a chamois dry to the protective armor of a wax coat, Amazing Automotive Detailing’s staff takes painstaking care to clean and safeguard vehicles. Motorists may flash back to that long-ago day at the dealership after technicians have hand-washed grit and grease off the vehicle’s finish and machine-buffed it to a reflective sheen. As drivers climb into the cabin, they’ll stare down at spotless carpets, and reminisce about a time when they had yet to hear the words "doggy-daycare carpool." The Detail King–authorized company offers hand-wash packages and interior-exterior details to combat all levels of filth, as well as extras such as headlight restoration and poly sealant protection.
Seasoned by experience with thousands of repair jobs, the technicians at Rite-Way Windshield Repair adroitly mend damaged windshields. The technicians fix chips caused by mishaps ranging from errant gravel to cold weather.
Owner and operator Mike Harler opened Harler’s Auto Repair shop in 2001 as a way of combining his multifaceted skills in the auto industry he had developed over more than 17 years. Since 1990, Mike has apprenticed at car dealerships where he learned the importance of customer satisfaction and a gentle bedside manner through hands-on experience tending to vehicles at both service stations and independent repair shops.
Mike leads by example, ensuring his team of automotive experts demonstrates this same combination of customer service and automotive expertise in the shop’s full gamut of maintenance and repair services. The courteous staff takes time to answer questions and concerns, discussing with drivers the reason behind repairs and whether cars traveling at light speed can turn on their blinkers.
Nobody wants to have to leave their car at the shop overnight, but at least at Auto Medics of Shelby, customers can cruise away in a free loaner until their vehicle is back to working order. The ASE-certified technicians at this facility combine their skillsets with state-of-the-art equipment to diagnose and repair an encyclopedia’s-worth of vehicular components, ranging from engines to brakes to transmissions. They service both foreign and domestic vehicles as well as trucks and trailers, and offer free towing along with free loaners.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
