Temple City Car Wash beautifies auto exteriors with meticulous washes and detailing beneath a cheery-red roof. Certified Meguiar's detailers draw from the shop's 38 years of expertise as they wield soft cloths, spray bottles, and whirring wax buffers during 10-minute express washes or lengthy detailing sessions. Recycled water splashes eco-friendly soap off hoods and guides shampoo suds through interior carpets, and luxe waxes and clay-bar treatments polish paint and stave off oxidation before molding into ornamental hood golems.
Since 1989, Corinthian International Parking Services has earned the trust of some big-time players in a diverse array of industries.

The founding family of King's Tire and Wheel Inc. opened their first retail tire shop in 1987. Today, they dot maps of Southern California with distribution centers, getting brand-name tires and wheels onto cars while keeping prices low.

From washes to waxes, the technicians perform everything by hand at Super Kleen Car Wash. Cars can quickly scoot in and out of the garage during the basic wash, which techs top off with a full interior vacuuming, wipe-down, and giant smooch. Meanwhile, more extensive packages, such as the VIP, take cleanings a step further with Armor All treatments, carnauba wax, and Lexol leather conditioner.
The car-window experts at Doctor Auto Glass patch up chips at their facility and bravely journey to ailing autos for on-location windshield replacements, backing their services with a lifetime warranty. During the chip-restoration process, which takes 30 minutes per chip, expert glass-care technicians repair up to three dings in the car's front window, ensuring they won’t expand into full-grown cracks or start hiding behind tacky sunglasses. Doctor Auto's technicians also travel to car-owners’ homes or businesses to replace windshields ($250+) and keep fierce highway winds from gaining access to drivers’ faces; the wandering windshield swappers need about 2 hours to safely secure the new windshield.
