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.
Lube 2 Go's traveling auto-detailers arrive at parking lots and driveways to steam-sterilize automobile exteriors and upholstery with an eco-friendly water-vapor wand. Cleaners disinfect air ducts and banish grime from wheel wells with puffs of steam and jets of hot water droplets, wiping surfaces clean with a soft, microfiber cloth. Like an on-the-go beautician that went to beauty school but for cars instead of people, Lube 2 Go's mobile teams of auto technicians keep autos looking runway ready wherever you happen to be, plus they can check tire pressure, change oil, and replace essential fluids.
The trained mechanics at Drum Hill Sunoco give autos the preventative care they need to tackle all the roads ahead. Service manager Jay Rogers oversees a stable of ASE-certified technicians who scrutinize autos' innards for problems with brakes, transmission, belts, and wheels. Mechanics also wield the latest tools and equipment to fix cars’ increasingly complex interior features, whether repairing a faulty stereo that comes standard on your hybrid or the broken abacus on your Trans Am.
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.
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.
For more than a decade, Harris Limousine's extensively trained drivers have transported passengers around town in luxuriously appointed vehicles outfitted with plush seats complemented by wood accents and leather trim. They shuttle flight-bound patrons to the airport in three-passenger sedans or a four-passenger SUV, helping them avoid the hassles of finding parking or digging a hole large enough to hide their car. Drivers also whisk passengers away aboard 6- or 10-passenger limousines to bars and clubs, a matrimonial ceremony, or a business meeting at a grocery store. The fleet contains a stretch SUV Hummer, a mini party bus, and a stretch Denali to accommodate groups of 10 or more.
