After watching his father work in the glass industry for more than 30 years, Troy Mason followed in his footsteps by opening his own full-service glass shop in 1991. Not content with simply fixing cracks, Troy also developed an in-house technician-training program that allies itself with the standards set by the National Glass Association. Two of its graduates were honored as half of the top four installers in the United States, earning the esteem of their peers and a gold medal made from old hood ornaments at the United States Auto Glass Olympics.

Licensed by the state of Utah, the car-care professionals at Performance Emission and Inspection dole out state inspections and fresh DMV stickers for all passenger vehicles in 10–15 minutes. Once customers schedule their appointment online and squeal up to the shop, technicians check the exhaust and slap on the state's seal of approval if the car is free of noxious fumes, hazardous toxins, and generic colognes. The friendly staffers can also renew registrations and issue new DMV stickers, allowing drivers to avoid the lines at the DMV.
The window specialists at Simply Cool bless cars with a new layer of cool in the form of SunTek automotive tinting film. In addition to carrying a lifetime manufacturer's warranty, the sleek tinting provides protection from interior fading and reduces the farmers' tan on dashboard bobble heads. No matter the windows covered, each treatment concludes with a proprietary topcoat that is scratch and crack resistant and carries a high-gloss finish. Simply Cool also deals in SunTek Architectural film for the home and business. By blocking up to 99% of harmful UV rays and significantly reducing heat, clients can expect a decrease in heating costs, and an increase in slightly bummed out gas-company employees.
At Diamond Glass, trained and certified technicians restore and replace auto glass with safety-tested parts and adhesives that meet or exceed manufacturer's standards.

The windshield technicians also travel to homes and offices to perform mobile windshield replacements. On the road or in the shop, the Diamond Glass team backs its services with warranties and helps to keep cars healthy with additional services such as safety and emissions tests.
The automotive aestheticians at Clark Executive Detail consider the business day spa for cars. Only instead of facials and massages, the team doles out pampering hand washes before coating cars with wax and polish, rendering paintjobs with the radiant twinkle of a light bulb’s earrings. Owners can also stow rides inside heated, 15,000 square feet storage space, where their investments rest easy inside a dust- and pest-free garage guarded under 24-hour camera surveillance.
