Houston Family Transportation shuttles passengers across the Atlanta metro area in one of three rides: a Lincoln Town Car, flashy Infiniti G35 Coupe, or a Chrysler Town & Country van. The fleet’s licensed and insured drivers help globetrotters load and unload their luggage, and free them from the trouble of hailing a cab or stealing a horse en route to a fancy gala or other special event. An online reservation system makes booking a ride from Houston Family Transportation easy.
For more than 20 years, the certified technicians at Dekra Emission Check have done one thing and done it well: superfast Georgia-state vehicle-emissions tests. Although most patrons choose to stay in the car and alphabetize their eight-track collection during the typically five-minute inspection, many of the growing list of almost 30 Atlanta-area locations feature an indoor lounge for auto owners to kick back in. If a vehicle’s emissions exceed the regulated limit, the team advises drivers of their options and performs a free retest at a later date.
Since its creation in 1925, Dekra Emission Check’s umbrella company, Dekra, has grown to include more than 30,000 employees in 50 countries. In addition to having performed more than three million vehicle inspections in the United States, the larger business offers services such as expert appraisals, industrial product testing and certifications, and management-system certifications.
Because they travel to vehicles parked at homes or offices, the detailers from Payless Automobile Detailing are able to hand wash, wax, and buff exteriors while cars stretch their tires on familiar pavement. The clean team also shampoos seats, repairs dents, refinishes paints, and installs window tints that enhance cars’ privacy and aesthetic value. When they’re not performing work by hand, the technicians call upon the high-pressure cleaning power of EPA-certified sprayers, which blast grit and grime off of sidewalks, driveways, decks, and other broad surfaces such as home exteriors and whale smiles.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states.

Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, factory maintenance services, batteries, belt replacement, and fluid services.
