Drink and Drive Intelligently assembles a team of professional designated drivers who keep more than 250 intoxicated drivers off the streets each week. Registered customers can call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and a duo of well-mannered chauffeurs will arrive within 30 minutes to ferry both customer and car home. While one driver commandeers the customer's vehicle and follows GPS-aided directions, the other follows closely. Once the customer's car is parked, locked, and read a bedtime story from the Kelley Blue Book, the keys are returned to their owner before the drivers head back to base.
A nonprofit organization dedicated to making the Twin Cities' streets safer, Sober Car supplies designated drivers to individuals after nights of drinking. Available to reserve via phone or online, the 24/7 service sends two representatives to every client. With permission, the first drives the client and the client's car home; the other follows behind in a Sober Car vehicle to pick up his teammate. Sober Car's friendly, attentive drivers also happily drop off friends, so long as there are enough seat belts per person.
In 1938, Charles “Red” Schoonover borrowed $50 and used it to found Schoonover Bodyworks & Glass, a family business that has passed through generations of Schoonovers over the past seven decades. Nowadays, the center honors its founder’s commitment to quality repairs with guarantees against workmanship faults, valid as long as clients own their cars. The guarantee covers maintenance procedures—such as oil changes and system flushes—as well as full-scale repairs. Technicians can match Sikkens paint to existing bodywork, concealing scrapes without hiding the entire car behind a weird-shaped tree, or revamp cratered exteriors with paintless dent removal. Glass repairs in the onsite shop include chip fixes and full replacement of windshields, sunroofs, and windows.
If you’re looking for a job at Arden Hills Tire & Auto Service, your resumé best have the phrase "ASE-certified technician" somewhere on it. Since 1990, this commitment to ASE certification has resulted in a highly trained staff that handles all of the shop's maintenance services, whether it be an oil change, tire rotation, or tune-up. The facility's extensive stock of Goodyear tires prove how far we’ve come since wheels were made of stone and used chewing gum. In the waiting room, drivers can help themselves to free coffee, popcorn, and WiFi.
The experienced crew at A.C.T. Asphalt Specialties has been installing and repairing asphalt and concrete pavements for residential and commercial locales in the Twin Cities for more than 30 years.
