The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote 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 helps prevent 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) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube?s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
It's not an illusion that the light looks much brighter at the end of BlueWave Express' tunnel. After all, a lot of dirt and grime has been removed from the windshield by the time the car and its driver emerge from the three-minute automated cleaning system, which aims to return vehicles to as close to showroom-quality appearance as possible. It takes 125 feet of conveyer belt and high-tech apparatus to achieve that goal. Cleaning foams, waxes, and ultra-soft cloths all work in tandem to remove debris, before purified water and powerful dryers leave cars with a spot-free shine.
The entire process should leave car owners with warm feelings in their own?carburetors?and not just because of their autos' fresh new gleam. BlueWave Express has a strong commitment to the environment as a certified water saver. The company uses eco-friendly products in addition to conserving water through a reclamation system.
Husband-and-wife duo David and Heather Murphy have made a loving, multi-species family out of their five dogs and three children. The Murphys also encourage dogs to network with other dogs at their doggie daycamp, Texas Doghouse. Home to social, group-style dog daycare, the daycamp helps dogs bond through unstructured playtime and games of no-rules Marco Polo in the wading pools. Human attendants oversee the proceedings, doling out food and filtered water and administering necessary meds.
Dogs can stay at the doggie daycamp overnight, too, following their day of daycare with a night in a cozy bunk. Outside of boarding and daycare, the daycamp’s veteran trainer, Sammi Jo Stohler, can also teach pups how to cohabit with humans or how to avoid snakes.
Tiremax keeps autos in effortless motion with professional, painstaking tire care and motor-refreshing oil changes. Vehicle virtuosos revitalize cars' arterial systems by removing aging lubricant and giblet gravy and replacing them with up to five quarts of fresh, life-sustaining oil. In a speedy tire rotation, certified technicians change the location of each tread to address uneven tire wear and increase wheels' longevity and performance. Buggies' suspension and steering components also undergo fine-tuning before a 21-point inspection puts filters, belts, hoses, and crocheted windshield-wiper cozies under the microscope. The technologically advanced facility employs only manufacturer procertified technicians who have completed Tiremax’s rigorous training program and an underwater obstacle course.
