If customers come into the shop at Five Star LLC Mobile Auto Detailing, they won't have to wait around while the detailers scrub their cars' interior, remove bugs and tar, and steam clean the trunk. That's because the shop offers pickup and drop-off services for clients who need to go home or go to work. Convenient as that sounds, there's actually an easier way to enlist the detailers help: schedule a mobile detail, during which the technicians will work their magic at the customer's workplace, driveway, or private shrine to John Candy, "Candyland."
Armed with their in-house line of cleaning products, Downey Company Protec's detailing technicians clean vehicles during in-shop and mobile detailing services. They fend off grime with hand washes and waxes, or execute the shop's signature treatments to fortify vehicles against hindrances including UV rays, corrosion, or carpet stains shaped like a disparaging driver's-ed instructor. While waiting for services, customers can nab bottles of Protec's products—car-wash concentrate, exterior gloss preserver, or spot remover—for at-home auto pampering.

Honest-1 Auto care's skilled technicians concern themselves with caring for customers, their cars, and the planet. They abide by an Environmentally Sustainable Actions-certified program, which necessitates they recycle, practice pollution prevention, and stay equipped with EV charging stations.

Other services include A/C and heating service, battery service, and tune-ups. Best of all, most services are backed by a 36-month, 36,000-mile warranty on parts and labor, while services over $25 include complimentary roadside service so that drivers can get help when they're stranded on the shoulder of the road or a high in a tree.
