When overcast winter skies and spring storm clouds clear, the roads begin to glisten with freshly washed cars. With 12 locations across Missouri and Kansas, there’s a pretty good chance that many of those vehicles visited a Squeaky Clean Car Wash. Whether it’s a soft-cloth tunnel car wash or a touchless, in-bay spraydown, rides leave dirt-free in a matter of minutes. Every wash comes with complimentary access to a self-serve vacuum, and select locations allow patrons to take matters into their own hands at self-serve washing bays. At their Quick Lube locations, Squeaky Clean flushes out sludgy fluids and also invites pet owners to hose down canines and pet mammoths preserved in tar at self-serve dog washes.
Colorado’s cluster of Midas Auto Service Experts shops have operated under the same local ownership for 30 years. At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
Hercules Auto Wash and Detailing's auto experts, who were once car-dealership owners, restore bedraggled vehicles to their original luster with thorough detailing. Auto pamperers wash and wax all exterior painted surfaces, scrub down the chrome, bumper, rails, and trim, and clean and dress all tires to bestow a gleaming finish and protect them from being easily punctured by serrated knives. On the interior, vacuums and extractions de-gunk carpeted and upholstered surfaces while vinyl and veneer covers are scoured and treated. The full detailing finishes with a window and vent polishing and purging the trunk of anything that might get in the way of spare tires or bundt cakes.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
Spot Not keeps cars dapper and scratch-free using an efficient cleansing system combined with a purified rinse for a flawless finish. The sudsy pageant commences with a Tire-Kleen treatment to dissolve the dust of the road before a double high-pressure wash sloughs remaining filth from soiled shells. A cleansing, de-mineralized rinse leaves the car to dry without streaking or spotting, and owners who enjoy pampering their perambulator pals can pay an additional $2 at time of service for the touch-free dryer treatment, which hastens evaporation and protects your ride from embarrassing postbath chassis chafing.
