Valet Detail's staff of professional cleaners cajoles dirt from the exteriors and interiors of autos, motorcycles, aircraft, and marine vessels. Dust-busting techs scour vehicles with environmentally friendly products onsite and even offer on-location mobile services. When they aren't polishing sedans, techs lather up fleets of semi trucks, company SUVs, and horse-drawn shopping carts.
With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.

For more than 60 years, Elephant Car Wash has resided on the cutting edge of car-wash technology. Archie, Dean, and Eldon Anderson founded the car wash in 1951 when they invented a hands-free machine that could clean cars and never be penalized in soccer. Thirty years later, they sold their shops to Bob Haney, who replaced the car-wash tunnels' plastic bristles with hybrid-blend cloths and high-pressure water nozzles. Nowadays, Elephant Car Wash features computer-operated tunnels that can read pH levels of dirt and—at certain locations—touchless car-wash tunnels that use high-powered water jets and potent detergents only.
Rotating above all of this technological progress is the car wash's signature pink elephant, which doubles as a polestar for drivers who need their vehicles washed, waxed, vacuumed, or shampooed. The trained staff waits outside the full-service car wash with towels and stages a slew of a la carte services including trunk vacuuming and leather conditioning. Elephant Car Wash works with the Puget Sound Car Wash Association and the Charity Car Wash Program, two organizations that strive to keep pollution out of waterways and inside the coffee mugs of Darth Vader.
Maxrider's “4D” theater safely jets participants off into fantastical, three-dimensional worlds bursting with stunning imagery and educational discoveries. During each three- to five-minute adventure, a 12.5-foot screen projects jaw-dropping locales into the eyes of up to six riders, who bounce, rattle, and shake up cartons of orange juice from within the simulator's oscillating cart. Patrons will have the opportunity to choose from up to 23 different experiences, which may include a roaring spin around a rocky canyon, an information-packed journey through the human body, or an adrenaline-pumping plunge into a mother-in-law's infamous meatloaf. To further forge an authentic experience and re-create reality, rides also spritz explorers with water and blow wind on them depending on the chosen enterprise.
The guys who started GNNorthwest felt the need for speed—so much so that they opened a shop that specializes in it. They give rides a boost with turbo and supercharger applications so that they can make even the biggest tires or vintage Stone-Age rock wheels spin. Their 38 years of experience in the industry have also helped them hone their expertise in routine maintenance services, such timing belts and tune-ups.
