The attentive staff at Charlie Brown’s Airport Parking watches after visiting automobiles in a fenced and secure lot located within a half-second flight of Pittsburgh International Airport’s runways. Upon arriving, car owners surrender their metallic steeds to seasoned valets before confirming their online reservations with a courteous host at the front desk. Cars are left to bask in the sunlight of an outdoor space, and an on-demand shuttle with complimentary luggage assistance whisks passengers away to nearby airport terminals. Only 15 minutes elapse between check-in at the lot and arrival at the terminal, allowing guests plenty of time to wait in security lines or double-check if their sunscreen and inflatable palm trees are packed.
The technicians at Mr. Tire maintain and repair more than three million cars a year, replenishing oil and rotating tires for sustained, smooth vehicle performance. During the oil change and tire rotation, technicians outfit autos with new oil filters and keep engines purring with up to five quarts of conventional oil. Mr. Tire’s technicians also inspect tires’ air- and peer-pressure levels, then rotate tires before bad influences can convince them to shoplift broken glass. A brake inspection acts as a reflex test for cars, keeping vehicles’ reaction times sharp.
Backed by his skilled staff, Dr. Dinakar Golla—who studied at the renowned Boston University School of Medicine—customizes surgical and aesthetic treatments for the face, body, and skin at six locations. He revivifies sagging eyelids with blepharoplasty, cultivates svelte physiques with liposuction, and casts out unwanted hair and spider veins from the body's surface using high-tech lasers and exorcism. He and his team also perform a slate of noninvasive medical-spa services and massages to help further enhance beauty.
With Pittsburgh Airport Valet Parking customers roll up to the kiosk in the rental-car garage, toss the friendly staff their keys, and go on their way without the worries of parking or the security of their vehicle. While away, the team can pamper the auto with sudsy hand washes and complete interior and exterior detailing. They can even change the oil and top off all fluids, including filling up the gas tank.
At LaserWash TouchFree CarWash, attendants don't soap up your car—instead, the cleans are administered by scrupulous touch-free automatic bays, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Drivers simply drive inside and follow easy-to-read signs to receive their mechanized pressure washes, which include an underbody spray, a clear coat protectant, and biodegradable soaps and waxes.
A business has to have something special to survive for more than half a century. For Mr. Magic Car Wash, perhaps that thing is a signature blend of nine cleaning solutions that work together to cut through tough road grease and leave vehicles with a glimmering luster. Or perhaps it’s the business's attention to detail, manifested in its soft-cloth hand washes. Either way Mr. Magic has not only survived the passing decades and the end of the DeLorean, it has thrived and expanded, now boasting five Pittsburgh-area locations. Even when sending cars through the automated car-wash tunnel for a quick rinse, Mr. Magic keeps auto owners' interests in mind, spraying fiberglass surfaces with only fresh water and drying them to a spot-free shine with hot air. Extra services, such as underbody flushes and interior and exterior detailing, help enhance each wash, and coats of Magic Repel surface protectant deflect new smudges and wizard spells.
