Besides eight kinds of oil changes, Lube Stop provides multipoint inspections, tire rotations, wiper blade replacement, and other maintenance and repair services. More than 240 employees?who receive continuous training to keep up with eco-friendly practices?helm the company's 37 Cleveland- and Akron-area locations, all of which offer E-Check emissions-testing stations.
The principle behind Rain-X is simple: it causes water to bead and roll off the glass, therefore improving the driver’s visibility during inclement weather. This humble concept has made the product one of the most called-upon tools in the auto industry, including at A-1 Auto’s & Detail. During their exterior detail, A-1’s technicians apply a quick spritz of Rain-X to all windows, allowing car owners to cruise through thunderstorms or have a good cry on the roof of their car, worry free. Aside from Rain-X, the team also treats exteriors to products by Black Magic, including their wheel shine, and sweeps through interiors with vacuums and ultra-violet cream protectant for the dash.
Wheely Clean Car Wash's family of facilities keeps Cleveland-area rides looking their best. Engineered by trained attendants, each wash uses environmentally friendly products, and begins with a hand steam that preps outer surfaces for a cleaning and releases any stubborn paint wrinkles. Vehicles then freely roll through the sudsy process, which includes free vacuuming in Parma or the option for detailing services in Northfield. Wheely Clean also operates as a discrimination-free business, meaning owners never pay more when a full-size SUV, van, or giraffe's limo needs a scrub.
