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 100 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, Mequiar, Blue Coral, and Rain-X- all 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.
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.
American Luxury Limousine's large fleet has been transporting people to special and everyday occasions—be it a college shindig or a business meeting—for more than 27 years. Professional drivers chauffeur bridal parties in style, pulling up to weddings in shiny stretch Hummers, party buses, and Lincoln Town Cars. They also offer leisurely wine tours of the Santa Monica Mountains to acquaint oenophiles with local varietals, and they host bachelorette parties to put an appropriately epic period on the end of a bride’s single life.
Watershed Auto Care?s licensed and insured detailers remove the gritty wear of the road from cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. They achieve that goal by pampering exteriors with lamb-wool-mitt hand washes and using their own brand of car-wash shampoo with wax that emulsifies grime and imbues shine. With elbow grease and specialized products, they can also rid autos of major swirls, surface scratches, and paint imperfections. Interiors receive equal attention, including conditioning of vinyl. Once vehicles have been thoroughly waxed, the crew can further enhance appearances with window tinting.
Convenience is key at Xpress Lube Service Center, whose three locations offer drive-through oil changes that require no appointment. Each location is staffed with trained technicians who replace old oil with regular, synthetic, or specialty high-mileage or green motor oil. Other automotive services include engine flushes, fuel-injection servicing, and transmission services.
At Simi Auto Spa & Speed Wash, vehicles are revived from the inside out with a multistep car-wash package. During the washes, dirt and grime is scrubbed off paint jobs and tires, then debris is vacuumed from carpets and floor mats. Sessions may last anywhere from 15–45 minutes, depending on how many soothing whispers it takes to lure cars into the water. During detailing sessions, staff buff, wax, and polish cars to a professional shine. In addition to cleaning and shining vehicles, Simi Auto Spa & Speed Wash also offers car repair and oil change services.
