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. Ultrasoft lamb's-wool mitts and biodegradable products help hands gently massage away built-up dirt and grime during detailing packages, which range from the exterior-focused express hand wax to the all-inclusive Complete Ultimate detail. 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.
An affiliate of Tesoro service stations, USA Gasoline fuels autos while providing intelligent car-cleaning solutions. Its ultrasonic mapping identifies the type of vehicle to be washed prior to service, and customizes the sudsing accordingly. The car wash takes an environmentally friendly stance by using reclaimed water and only accepting shade from free-range clouds.
Hand Car Wash USA sanitizes rides seven days a week with meticulous, machineless hand-wash services. During the 15-minute Red wash, technicians dizzify dirt with human-powered towels, heighten the shiny veneer with foam polish conditioner, and lather on sealer wax to protect surfaces from the brushstrokes of nearsighted Impressionists. The 15-minute All-American wash extends the gestures of the Red wash with wheel brightener and tire dressing, which grooms autos’ lower ligaments before air blowers comb the sides and cleaners pepper the car with air fragrance. During the 60-minute complete interior detail, a meticulous hand wash massages the frame before technicians slip into the car to blow through fossilized fast-food toys with a vacuum and flush out spots with a complete shampoo. Detailers finalize the service with leather conditioners and drying blasts of air.
At each of its three locations, Auto Collision Solutions restores dusty and damaged autos and RVs to their former glory with thorough detailing treatments and a multistep restoration and repair process. As a direct repair shop, the esteemed business has earned the right to broker directly with insurance companies, handling all ordering, estimate writing, and repairs in a streamlined process, eliminating the need to wait for an adjuster or pay dues to the Worshipful Company of Insurance Middlemen. Technicians conduct a free estimate, and courtesy shuttles or rental cars whisk customers to home or work while licensed mechanics renew all makes of engines and auto bodies. Techs undo collision damage via a precise, computerized color-matching process before scrubbing up the inside, exterior, and tires with extensive detailing.
Akin to a real spa, Redlands Autospa & Detail pampers cars from bumper to bumper with a range of washing and detailing services. Cars can careen through the automatic washer for a diligent scrub down or find their way into the hands of deft cleaning technicians for a sudsy hand wash. The team brightens exteriors with wheel and tire treatments and helpings of Nano Shine and Meguiar’s spray wax, and refurbishes interior landscapes by vacuuming trunks and cabins and shampooing carpets and forgotten carpoolers. While the crew works, drivers can peruse the auto spa’s spacious gift shop or surf free WiFi in the business center, all while tykes hit the kid’s playroom.
As the name suggests, Just Cruzin Productions specializes in events with a lot of horsepower. Guests browse more than 1,000 hot rods and classic cars at The Classic at Pismo Beach, an annual show that has been drawing droves of auto enthusiasts to central California for almost three decades. Its expertly maintained autos on display are in mint condition—they're judged based on areas from their interiors to their engine compartments, as well as on the owner's overall attention to detail, making it hard to win just by taping cardboard cutouts of a Corvette to a wagon. But the company also produces other major open-air shindigs, such as The Wagon Wheel Country Music Festival.
What unites its large portfolio of events is a passion for charitable giving. Through the Just Cruzin’ Life Foundation, it's directed millions of dollars in event proceeds to organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and the Jerry L. Pettis Loma Linda Veterans Hospital.
