Guided by more than 25 years of experience in technological wizardry, Creative Photo Video Inc.'s trained preservationists transform analog movies and photographs into a modern digital format. Beloved tunes held captive on outdated tapes find a new home on CDs, and movies and photos are transferred to shiny new DVDs, a durable and long-lasting medium that can be played back on any number of dedicated players, computers, game consoles, or Internet–enabled gramophones. The skilled technicians also helm wedding-video productions complete with photo montages and recaps, which have thrilled countless couples and have found their way onto the Oprah Winfrey Show.
Hanson & Sons Moving’s team of professional, strong-armed movers eases the act of relocating with services offered at every step of the process, including packing, trucking, and unloading. Crews of two to four movers pack their trucks with boxes and furniture, using their own tools to disassemble unwieldy beds and reconstruct them back to premove condition or as futuristic sleep tubes. Moving blankets protect fragile furniture, and the movers can provide packing supplies such as boxes, tape, and bubble wrap.
When patrons rent a motorcycle from Oklahoma Harley Rental, they mount a motorized steed not generally available to civilian riders. Boasting motors 7 cubic inches larger than those found on standard bikes, the agency’s Electra Glides come factory-installed with 103-cubic-inch motors that typically power police interceptors. Assisted by six-speed transmissions and custom exhausts, the larger motors give travelers more bursts of speed than a coalition of cheetahs playing Red Light, Green Light. Oklahoma Harley Rental also issues Suzukis and 2012 Harley Road Kings, which carry a slimmer silhouette than the Electra Glide, but have a fat rear tire designed for longer trips. Though only licensed drivers can borrow bikes from the agency’s lineup, the uninsured can get staffers’ assistance in securing the necessary coverage.
Allied Foam upgrades dream platforms with durable foam mattress pads, pillows, and protective covers designed to ensure comfort and enhance restful sleep. With each CorrectRest twin XL mattress pad, dorm-dwelling students or extra-large twins can protect their temporary sleeping stations with layers of foam that are impervious to water and dust mites. The deluxe pads cushion dreamers with two layers of the American-made foam, and the supreme models offer three layers to further bolster healthy sleep. Though waterproof, the temperature-regulating material works to prevent excessive heat, and each pad is sewn in a way that thwarts bedbugs and nightmares about overcooking ramen noodles.

Urban Lawn and Garden founder Willie Collins focuses on leading a healthy lifestyle while maintaining the planet’s natural resources. His company’s philosophy reflects his views by making sustainable lawn and garden care possible for everyone with a fleet of electric-powered vehicles, eco-friendly mowers, and a line of organic composts. Throughout the growing season, lawn specialists summon green grass while rescinding weeds' squatters' rights. In addition to lawn care, the company installs brand-new gardens, perfect for growing fruit, veggies, and flowers. What little extra power Urban Lawn and Garden uses is offset by the business's solar panels, making its daily operations completely self-sustained, and thus exempt from paying the earth’s monthly rent.
