CrownKote's meticulous technicians draw on more than a decade of experience as they gently expel contaminants and purify vehicles to approach show-room levels of cleanliness. The staff treats vehicles to three levels of detailing, which encompass everything from hand washes to HVAC vent cleaning, and renew hazy, yellowed, and clouded headlights to improve visibility and boost each roadster's aesthetic appeal. Additionally, an array of truck beds, trailers, shop floors, and car parts await drivers looking to augment their rides or billy goats planning family dinners.
AutoWorks, Inc.'s Vale-certified paintless-dent-repair technicians restore vehicles battered by hail and help car-owners to navigate negotiations with insurance companies. Their skillful handiwork restores average pitting by hail within one or two days, a quick enough turnaround to get vehicles ravaged on Wednesdays ready for ramps over the Grand Canyon by the weekend. Workers employ steel rods of varying sizes to knead dents from damaged panels rather than replace them, shaping the metal to prevent the re-emergence of craters later on in most cases. Unless hail cracks the car's lacquer, the process sidesteps the time-consuming and eco-hazardous process of restoring the shell with paint and filler. In addition to wrangling insurance claims and rounding up rental cars to pick up clients, the friendly car-care professionals pen lifetime warranties on all repairs as well as lonesome ballads about life in the garage.
The glass guardians at SwiftPro Auto Glass restore nicked and dinged windshields to their factory sheen with repairs and full replacements. During rock-chip repairs, trained technicians mend cracks or chips up to 3 inches in length, correcting imperfections that hinder the windshield's structural integrity and ability to withstand dive-bombing goliath beetles. Most repairs conclude within 10 minutes.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote 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 helps prevent 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) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical system maintenance, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
As correctly predicted by the classic animate thought experiment Transformers, cars and electronics have continued to merge into single entities as technology has progressed. It takes a special skill set to deal with all these electronic systems, a skill set possessed by the aptly named technicians at The Remote Start Guys. They integrate advanced electrics in chassis of all shapes, sizes, and colors, including remote starters, 12-volt audio systems, and DVD players.
