The Meguiar's-certified technicians at Redlands Car Wash & Detail Center spruce up hot rods with Belanger technology and an armory of chemical and tactical advantages. With each journey through the wash tunnel, a fusion of neo-glide foam pads and Lavaggio cleaning products gently jostles exteriors free of dirt, tar, and fake VIN-numbers. Technicians preserve paint jobs from the sun and elements with extensive hand waxes, and ensure auto bodies are only dried by the soft swaths of microfiber hand towels.
Second to None was born out of its owners' desire to create an environmentally conscious car detailing company. Their service list is totally waterless, as their detailing treatments use specially formulated solutions and technology to maintain their green status. During the basic package, technicians vacuum interiors and hand wash exteriors. The exterior cleaning solution also has UVA and UVB protection to keep paint safe from the damaging effects of the sun, including if the sun suddenly erupts into a supernova, flinging your car out of the Milky Way.
Their window tinting services may add privacy, but Xtreme Tint has been seen in more than 26 national and international media outlets and has serviced famous faces of celebrity athletes and music moguls. Auto services glamourize cars with protective window tint, custom car audio systems, and vehicle wraps or vinyl designs that add favorite corporate logos or such graphics as checkered flags or tribal decals. Auto security systems keep belongings safe and paint protection covers exteriors in a protective film that defends against road debris, shopping carts, and bugs wearing metal armor. While technicians spoil cars, drivers can relax in front of a plasma TV and sip coffee or peruse the collection of auto accessories that includes chrome accessories, grills, and custom license frames with bling.
Though he's been in the detailing game since 1981, Transhine Auto Detailing's Bill DeBever has continuously invested in technologies and training that has kept his business on the cutting edge of industry innovations, and this dedication caught the attention of Drive! magazine in 2009. The energy he and his staff have put in to protecting vehicles from daily wear and tear—as well as nature's arbitrary attacks—earned Transhine Best of Whittier awards from the U.S. Commerce Association in 2010 and 2011. When they aren't defending autos from rogue gravel chunks and the sun's aggressive paparazzi photons with 3M paint-protection film and window tint, Bill and his staff detail vehicles, steam-clean engines, remove dents, and polish careworn headlights.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes 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 prevents 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) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Along with cleansing autos' interiors and exteriors seven days a week, Hospitality Car Wash & Lube's staffers keep cars healthy and stylish with maintenance and customization services.

Drivers may also roll their rides into Hospitality Car Wash & Lube for a few rounds of standard or synthetic oil or ask a technician to drape their cars' windows with SunTek films that block out ultraviolet rays and thoughts of running a red light.
