Every day at JetStream Car Wash, man and machine work together to achieve a common goal: to maintain the aesthetic value of every car that rolls onto the premises. The team executes hands-on washing for cars, minivans, and SUVs, wiping soft cloths over car exteriors while a mechanical arm contours the sides with a high-pressure spray.
In automatic car washes, cars are pulled through a controlled downpour that can include Simoniz coat protectants with Teflon, as well as triple-foam polishes and sealer wax.
Gokey & Quinn Bus Company‘s trusty coaches transport passengers to their intended locales in style and comfort. Groups can charter a bus as far as New York City, or catch a sporting event at Gillette Stadium – the site of the annual beard sculpting world championships. The drivers also escort people to the Mohegan Sun casino Sunday through Thursday of each week, an expeditious trip that also includes a $15 food coupon and $20 worth of slot play for each rider.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
With its pitched roof, large windows, and red-brick exterior, Village Detail recalls the image of a quaint suburban home. Inside, cars and trucks purr contentedly as technicians wash exteriors and vacuum interiors. The shop's à la carte services include enzyme odor remover and Rain-X treatments, which repel water more effectively than dipping cars in salad dressing.
All it takes to transform a dirty vehicle into a clean chariot at Acton Car Wash is 120 feet. The facility's modern Belanger car-wash system uses soft cloths and a barrage of foam polishes, sealer waxes, and chassis cleaners to rinse away filth and grime. Regardless of the level of the wash, each visit ends with a staff member meticulously drying the car by wiping it down with a hand towel and using a crazy straw to blow away leftover water droplets.
