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 extend beyond oil changes, too—they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.
Advanced Moving and Storage opened its doors 24 years ago with the goal of accommodating relocation needs, from packing up to stowing belongings in secure lockers. To that end, the company planted its storage facilities on high ground, fenced the property, and installed computer-controlled gates, digital surveillance monitors, and a piranha-infested moat. Warding off infestation, the company's terminators spray the perimeter monthly and treat each unit (sized 5'x5' to 30x'30') between rentals. Customers can tally their belongings into an online calculator for an estimate of how much storage they may need. In addition to reserving storage for clothing, appliances, and armoire-portals to Narnia, customers can rent space in secured lots for boats, RVs, and 18-wheel trucks. Advanced Moving and Storage gives back to the community through various sponsorships for local little league teams, scouting troops, and the Tallahassee Toys for Tots program.
Both Splash Zone and Hurricane Bay restore allure to befouled buggies with soft-brush automatic car washes. Breadcrumb trails of spark plugs lure vehicles into a computerized prerinse that softens up caked-on mud and grime. After loosening sludge, the car wash blankets soggy sedans in soft brushes, allowing drivers seated inside to imagine that they're being eaten by a shag carpet. The wash then dispatches muck from the entire exterior and shines tires before an automatic dryer blasts away excess water. Drivers redeem their coupons at computerized kiosks outside the car wash and can upgrade to higher-priced washes for an additional fee.
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.

Founded in 1971 by Dennis “Jake” McGrath and Thomas Carella, Furrin Automotive has expanded over the last four decades from an exclusive Volkswagen shop to a full-blown auto-repair and service center for most foreign cars. The shop’s technicians handle both major and minor repairs, and they put vehicles through a range of maintenance services, such as oil changes, tire installation and balancing, 30-point inspections, and testing clown capacity. Though the staff offers same-day service on most repairs, the garage dispatches a complimentary shuttle every morning to tote customers to work. Furrin Automotives also teams up with Parkway Wrecker to offer emergency road service 24 hours per day.
