Though mankind has created machines to clean their dishes, clothes, and teeth, the specialists at Spex Hand Car Wash know that the best way to wash a car is by hand. The manual process allows them to eliminate dirt from every nook and cranny while leaving the exterior with a glossy shine. They hand-dry each auto, too, and devote equal attention to its interior during add-on services such as tire conditioning or engine cleaning. The Dempster Street location offers maintenance services as well, which range from oil changes and tire rotations to more in-depth repairs.
The auto gurus at Lucky's pamper vehicles with fastidious hand washes alongside detailing, restoration, and customization services. Blue Coral and Rain-X products leave motorized steeds clean and protected from the elements after the comprehensive detailing treatments, which may include free pickup and drop-off service in the Skokieland area. Less conventional conveyances also receive love at the car wash's 30,000-square-foot complex, where the attentive staff performs detailing on motorcycles, boats, pumpkin carriages, and pumpkins that used to be carriages.
Bottles of Meguiar's, Rain-X, Black Magic, and Nu Finish line the work bays at Car Pretty, where experienced detailers revamp rides with detailing and hand-wash services. Despite their impressive product arsenal, their supplies come second to their technique; using clay bars, detailers meticulously remove tiny scratches and imperfections from paint, taking care to evict all bird stains and hood-ornament birds' nests. They also take advantage of specially designed Tornador equipment that dislodges embedded dirt from all interior surfaces. While the detailers unleash their cleansing fury on sullied surfaces, guests can lounge in the shop's waiting room.
