Q&A with Russ, Management
How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
Our Valet Airport Parking Service is enjoyed by thousands of travelers each month. In the winter, you get off our 24-hour, seven-day-a-week shuttle to and from Boston Logan terminals (a five minute ride) to your car up front, warmed up, and snow removed. In the summer, enjoy coming back to your car up front and air conditioner on. Upon arrival to our facility, your receipt is on your dash, so no waiting; you just hop in your car and go.
What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?
Upon arrival to the Valet Airport Parking lot, leave your keys in the car, and have your license plate ready for the counter to process your claim ticket for easy return. Business and leisure frequent travelers return over and over again.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
People are often surprised and delighted at the optional services we can offer while they are away. We have a full detail service on site and a car wash. We offer an exterior car wash, interior detail, exterior detail, or a complete detail package and have your car looking good upon your arrival. Our bus drivers even assist with luggage.
Select Airport Valet Parking's attendants lovingly look after every vehicle in their 500-space lot while owners are away, even ensuring that cars feel comfortable when they return. To do so, they keep a copy of the owner's travel itinerary, which alerts them when it's time to run the AC in the summer or warm a car in winter and scrape off snow. They also carry passenger luggage to and from their shuttle buses, taking care of the heavy lifting. Car care services can also be performed while owners are away, with options like oil changes, car washes, carpet cleaning, and reading vehicles bed time stories.
The sharply uniformed chauffeurs of Boston Lifestyle Limo fetch and ferry riders throughout New England, New York, and Connecticut in sleek extended Lincoln Town Cars. Chauffeurs safely steer toward hotels or airports and warmly welcome wedding parties or groups of coworkers into back seats spacious enough to host an upcoming company barn dance. The luxury sedans purr toward pick-up points at all hours, conveniently accommodating late-night or early-morning trips.
It only makes sense that the auto detailers at Car Care are as mobile as the vehicles that they work on. Stocked with cleaning gear, their service vans travel around the Boston area before stopping at offices and homes. There, the detailers wash car exteriors by hand and venture inside to sweep, scrub, and condition all surfaces, including leather seats and miniature dance floors. Alternatively, the team also works out of four service locations. At these brick-and-mortar spots, the team replaces windshields, removes scratches, and executes all manner of auto body repair.
At seven locations throughout Boston, the technicians at Mr. Perfection Inc thoroughly clean vehicles inside and out with a variety of detailing packages. In addition to hand-washing services, clay-bar treatments, and steam-cleaning carpets, seasoned car-care experts can remove dings or dents, replace windshields, or tint windows to conceal foreign royalty longing for life among the common folk.
With more than 30 years of experience in the car-care industry, pit-worthy crews at Classic Car Wash and Mobil 1 Oil Change meld customer service with the latest hydration and lubrication technologies. Exterior washes assuage vehicular steel with soft-cloth finesse, while air-drying delivers warm blasts of heat without the hassle of uncomfortable car embraces ($8 each). Autos seeking profounder help may opt for the oil change, complemented by a new filter, fluid and light check, tire inflation, and a dog-eared copy of Dianetics. Channel your vehicle's inner narcissist with the express polish detailing, which drapes it in gold wash while adding tire shine, interior vacuuming, windowing cleaning, high-gloss polish, and an horse-powered je ne sais quois.
