Owned and operated by brothers Jeff and Colby Wiggins, DJ's II Car Wash restores shine and sheen to road-worn rides. Today's Groupon offers a choice of two exemplary washes. The Best Exterior wash begins with a wash and towel dry of auto exteriors followed with a wax and polish, sure to help automobiles jet down freeways trailing sonic booms and to please vain mini candles seeking their reflections in newly shined tires. Clear-coat protection and Rain-X are sprayed onto vehicles to coax condensation into easy-to-string beads. The Best Value wash starts with these elements and then soars into automotive sumptuousness with a wipe-down of the door panels, cup holders, and console, and a thorough cleaning of the windows–ensuring cleanliness is not only steel-deep. A dash dressing prevents buildup of dust, fingerprints, and swaying hula women. The capable crew brightens tire rims, buffs automotive bodies, and cleans windows so well they require cautionary stickers for households with small children.
As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extends beyond oil changes, too?they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.
Locally owned and operated, Super-Suds Express scours cruddy car casings with a bevy of ultra-speedy wash options. De-gunk mucky motor coats with a three-minute Deluxe wash, which entails a soft-cloth wash, tire brushing and wheel cleaner, a tri-foam bubble bath, a spot-free rinse, and a whirlwind trip through the Tornado air dryer. The Works wash includes all of the Deluxe’s cleansifying trappings but with the added perks of a tire shine, Rain-X window dressing, and a clear coat of sealer wax dashingly draped over your vehicle's exterior. Both speedy de-soilings include the use of a free self-service vacuum session to clear interiors of dirt, leaves, and Lilliputian hitchhikers.
Super-Suds restores cars to their showroom shine with quick and painless washes. Vehicles travel through a brush-free zone that rinses away stubborn dirt and muck without damaging the paint. Rations of clear-coat protectant and conditioner preserve luster and shine, and technicians finish the job by hand, drying off exteriors to ward off water spots and keep exhaust pipes from catching a cough. Super-Suds also protects against looming thunderstorms by guaranteeing a free wash for every car that gets caught in the rain within 48 hours of visiting the shop.
The auto cleansers at Fresh Improvement scrub vehicles by hand, buff and shine exteriors, and meticulously scour interiors to return rides to their showroom luster. Patrons can treat roadsters to a 45-minute express hand car wash, which includes an exterior wash and a chamois dry, and expels bugs from the front bumper, windshield, and rooftop lawn chairs. During one to two hours of advanced primping, the detail Wash-n-Wax cleanses exteriors from doorjamb to fuel cap and then bathes bodies in a detergent loaded with clear-coat conditioner and protectant. After blow-drying moisture out of every crevice and wind cave, technicians massage Rain-X into windshields and shine painted surfaces with orbital and hand waxes.
Though already highly skilled, the repair and detailing technicians at Custom Cars are required to undergo additional training every year. It's all part of founder Don “Dee” Hargrove’s mission to reach new heights in customer satisfaction. Thus armed with knowledge of all the best and latest repair techniques, the shop's certified technicians restore busted windshields and fix dents and dings, backing each repair with a one-year warranty. They also install—and sell—amplifiers and stereos and outfit rides with new wheels, tires, and glass-encased sidecars for superhero sidekicks.
In addition to fixing parts, Custom Cars staffs a deft and thorough detailing crew. The team uses foam washes to loosen dirt and reduce swirls before giving paint a thorough spray-down using a two-bucket method and pH-neutral soaps to prevent scratches. Techs also tidy up everything in sight on the inside, including floors in need of vacuuming, driver's cockpits in need of dusting, and drivers in need of waxing.
