Cars roll in cruddy and roll out gleaming at Dean’s Auto Shine, which anchors its nearly 30-year legacy on expert hand washes and thorough detailing services. And it’s not just cars that get the Dean’s treatment; the shop’s seasoned staff applies their detailing prowess to boats, motorcycles, and RVs, as well as aircrafts defaced by UFO tractor beams. Custom-tailored detailing caters to a car’s interior and exterior, prolonging the life of autos in conjunction with rustproofing services and the removal of paint oxidation and paint swirls. Courtesy pick-up and delivery of autos is available to and from a customer’s home, place of work, or demolition derby.
Steve's Auto Shine’s meticulous detailing crew, overseen by owner Steve Farrell, leaves harsh automatic car-washing systems by the wayside in favour of the delicate hand washes of yesteryear. The hawk-eyed team hunts down dirt speckles and smudges on all makes and models with thorough detailing packages that cleanse horseless carriages from the inside out. Their arsenal of cleaning and protective solvents includes Teflon paint protector that shields auto exoskeletons from scratches and bites from Ford Pintos, as well as Scotchgard sprays that stave off stains on car seats and carpets.
UniglassPlus/Ziebart's certified glass techs de-ding windshields and replace those that can't be repaired with professional ease and quality customer service. If hail, kicked-up gravel, or pennies tossed from airplane windows have put a chip or crack in the breeze shield, the glass shop's experts can repair it to prevent further damage. Different types of chips in the glass such as a surface crack, bullseye, and half moon are prone to splintering into uglier, more serious damage, but can be fixed in about 30 minutes. When the windshield is beyond repair, UniglassPlus/Ziebart can replace it with a shiny new one ($299+) crafted only from first-class quality auto glass enhanced with superior urethanes that meet or surpass Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. UniglassPlus will not replace the vehicle's gust guard if repair is an option, and will recycle all windshields by donating them to research for space cars.
Behind Easy Go Auto’s tidy crimson and white façade, teams of licensed technicians are hard at work, dutifully restoring and maintaining the vital systems of all makes and models of imported or domestic vehicles. Mechanics prevent wear, tear, and unexpected breakdowns with routine oil changes and tire rotations, while AC specialists maintain comfortable cabin temperatures with thorough inspections and repairs of hoses, lines, evaporators, compressors, and the cursed snowball that makes everything cold. Complimentary towing services within a 10-mile radius of the shop safely tote vehicles with unresponsive engines or ailing tires.
Lothrop Parking provides spaces for vehicles to rest their weary wheels for a while. One of Henry Ford Hospital's New Center skyways hovers above the entrance to this covered parking garage, which offers daily and monthly rates for car, truck, and SUV owners to leave their craft in a secure location. And it's just a few blocks northwest of the Amtrak station, putting travelers within easy walking or hopscotching distance of their waiting train.
The world’s first steam-cleaning car-wash franchise, DetailXPerts employs organic cleaning products to reinvigorate vehicles to show-room levels of spotlessness. With the Presidential detail, a team of expert scrubbers travel directly to clients to give four-wheelers the Oval Garage treatment over about two hours, kicking off with a traditional hand wash and dry. After the nebulous power of steam scours rims and wheels, a slathering of tire dressing shines up car shoes and eliminates any evidence of joy rides through tar pits. Detailers thoroughly vacuum and deodorize interiors, purifying seats and vents, conditioning carpet and upholstery, and steam-cleaning floor mats, along with a slew of other down-and-dirty tactics. Proud owners of people-movers can schedule appointments for DetailXPerts’ mobile unit to come meet them whether they’re at home, at work, or out running a car-wash fundraiser.
