Dell and Company Detailing spruces up cars, vans, and SUVs during two- to five-hour detailing appointments. Its technicians treat rides to services such as interior detailing, which includes vacuuming, carpet and upholstery shampooing, leather conditioning, and dashboard dressing. During exterior details, they repair minor scratches, protect finishes, and shine tires. Dell's crew also provides a complete interior and exterior detail as well as a light detail that covers just the basics.
Centerville Car Wash & Café's team of wash doctors turn muddy autos into sparkling chariots of cleanliness as customers lounge in comfort. The Works car wash cleanses auto exteriors and paints them with a clear-coat sealant to prevent damage. Rain-X is applied to glass surfaces to repel the charm of water droplets, Wheel Brite treats tires to a relaxing facial, and the car's underbody receives a rust-inhibitor bath.
When it was founded in 1959, Ziebart’s business model hinged on a single service: its innovative rust-prevention procedure. However, the chain has diversified its auto treatments throughout the last five decades. Though the team of certified technicians continues to safeguard vehicles against corrosion, they also protect paint jobs with Z-Shield and Diamond Gloss coatings and render interior fabrics stain-resistant with their house Ultra Fabric Protector formula. They clean and disinfect ride interiors, and hand-wash and machine polish exteriors to a sparkling shine. Beyond up-keeping vehicles, they stock an arsenal of car electronics that run the gamut from remote car starters to in-dash navigation systems, which can help drivers find their way back home without relying on a trail of breadcrumbs.
Driving through a hailstorm, bumping your door against a parking meter, insulting a woodpecker—there are countless ways for vehicles to accumulate dings and dents. Under the leadership of founder John Highley, Dent Magic's expert team uses a paintless dent-repair system to remove such marks without the use of paint or fillers and backs their work with a written lifetime guarantee. They tackle door dings within 30 minutes and hail damage within one to two days on all makes and models, such as Toyota, Subaru, and Mercedes Benz. John trains students in those same paintless dent-repair techniques, so no one will ever have to resort to denting the rest of the car until it looks even.
When Mike's Carwash first opened in 1948, it was one of only 18 carwash businesses in the United States. Today, the family-owned establishment keeps the 65-year-old tradition of gussying up automobiles alive at 42 locations throughout the Midwest. At each location, accommodating staffers stand by to assist customers during the cleaning process. Decked out in cartoon neckties, the cheerful team ushers cars into computer-controlled washers that eschew traditional gear-operated brushes and baseball bats in favor of controlled sprays and soft cloths. After the mixture of eight signature soaps de-grimes surfaces, 200-miles-per-hour gusts of hot air dry vehicles instantly. Mike's also offers specialty coats to give car exteriors and tires additional shine.
From the front grill to the rear bumper, New Life Auto Detailing’s technicians lavish cars, SUVs, and trucks with their very own cleansing products. Each detailing session begins by hand, with techs who scrub dirt and grit off the exterior with their own digits. They then machine polish the finish and turn the chrome, trim, and tires into sparkling features. They resurrect interiors with equal aplomb, using smatterings of solutions for leather, vinyl, and upholstery. Finally, the techs clean engines to keep things shipshape and prevent cars from being recruited by junkyard racing squads. For each step, the company uses its exclusive cleaning products, including a seasonal protective paint coating that preserves the shiny finish even through snow and rain.
