When the technicians at Solar Films of West Palm fit car, home, or commercial windows with LLumar or Sun-Tech films, the results could pass for factory-installed. That’s because they use a computer-plotter tool to shape and cut them. This tool replaces the meandering, imperfect lines of hand cutting, creating smooth, even edges that are flush to the window edges of almost any model of car or boat or fit snugly against window frames on homes or businesses. Window tinting reduces heat and glare and protects car passengers from UV rays, making for a more comfortable ride.
For more than 35 years, Trail Tire Center has been steadying the gait of vehicles with tire truing, high-speed balancing, and alignment. They carry tires from brands such as Bridgestone, Goodyear, and BFGoodrich. The technicians aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, though; in addition to tire services, they offer oil changes, brake inspections, and other mechanical services that keep cars at peak performance.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Caroline Tire Company's two locations partner with tires from brands such as Goodyear, Firestone, and Michelin, as well as top-of-the-line technicians waiting to perform a multitude of automotive services. Customers who purchase new or air-checked used tires for cars, SUVs, and commercial vehicles can have them installed on the spot. Technicians also perform routine maintenance, such as oil changes, and put their tools and knowledge toward bettering the performance of brakes, alternators, water pumps, and engines.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, brakes, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
