At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
What began as a cleaning business more than 20 years ago has blossomed into Car Spa Detailing Center’s two full-scale locations, with Joe DeBarros at the helm since their inception. From its bases in Cambridge and the Natick Collection mall, a team of acute technicians conditions vehicles with a menu of services ranging from express details to all-out auto-spa detailing with hand washes and liquid Simonize waxes. They lovingly swab every nook and cranny of cars ranging in size from compacts to large SUVs, trucks, and vans, polishing the outside and leaving the façade wholesome enough to play Abraham Lincoln in Presidents' Day parades.
Wheel DynamiX, Inc.'s skilled technicians customize cars with upgrades that boost a vehicle's appearance as well as performance. Clients improve their second-largest investment with shiny new wheels and tires from brand-name manufacturers, or shield their paint jobs from rock chips and death rays with near-invisible paint protection films from XPEL. Remote-starter setups let drivers enter their cars without fumbling for bulky car keys, while extensive detailing services keep vehicles looking shiny and spotless inside and out.
Mobile service and tire installation, two seemingly separate services, come together inside My Tire Guys’ bright yellow trucks. Damaged tires immediately take autos off the road, making it difficult for owners to replace torn rubber without an expensive tow or a dangerous piggy-back ride to a mechanic. My Tire Guys' technicians load their mobile service centers with new, brand-name tires specific to the make and model of the customer’s vehicle, and then travel to their home or office to install fresh rollers and balance them with laser-guided, computerized equipment. Technicians even dispose of the old tires, saving customers the hassle of locating a proper facility.
At the St. Louis Center For Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry, Dr. Guilan Norouzi and Dr. Robert Peterson augment conventional cleanings and exams with a roster of cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening and Invisalign. The duo and their staff sculpt and repair dentures, partials, and crowns in an onsite dental lab, and lab technicians dialogue directly with the patients to ensure faux grins fit, blend in with, and memorize the names of surrounding teeth. i-CAT scanners collect three-dimensional images of teeth, while E4D digital scanners memorize molar and bicuspids' outlines, enlisting the information to customize restorative hardware before patients' eyes.
The ASE-certified techs at International Auto take a universal approach to car maintenance, welcoming cars and trucks from Europe, Asia, and North America. The shop has been a haven for ailing autos for the past 35 years, and its techs perform services from repairing exhaust systems and performing diagnostic evaluations to replacing batteries, tweaking brakes, and maintaining air conditioners. Customers can drop off their broken buggies 24 hours a day by parking them in the lot, depositing their keys in the garage, and clicking their heels together three times.
