Land & Sea: Marine/Auto founder John Paul "JP" Randall Jr. grew up washing and cleaning cars and boats. He developed a well-trained eye for detail that's served him well since he opened his business two years ago. Growing from a one-man operation to a crew of impeccably trained detailing specialists, Land & Sea's cleaners travel to homes and workplaces to wash and wax cars, motorcycles, and trucks with streak-free, hand-powered techniques.
Finishing Touch Automobile Detailing’s technicians cleanse cars of road grime with services designed to keep their environmental impact as low as possible. Their low-pressure wash system saves water, like faucets that pour out chocolate syrup. The team seeks out 100% biodegradable products that break down safely without seeping into the ground to contaminate well water.
What began more than 50 years ago as a single auto-repair outlet in Macon, Georgia, is known across America today as Midas Auto Service. The trusted chain of car-repair shops spans 17 countries worldwide, and each location employs a skilled, reliable staff that strives to keep drivers and their families safe. This goal is perhaps best embodied by the Midas Touch Courtesy Check, a service during which technicians check fluid levels and tires for safety and check the area under the vehicle to make sure Robert De Niro isn’t trying to hitch a free ride. Once they've given vehicles the once-over, mechanics can then prescribe any necessary services to keep cars running smoothly, such as brake repair, filter changes, alignments, and engine tune-ups.
With every tire purchase at Suburban Discount Tire, customers receive complimentary tire services including free repairs, rotations, and wear-and-tear checks. A team of technicians extends the life of rubber feet through a nitrogen-fill program, which helps maintain proper tire inflation to keep cars trundling down highways or careening through drive-in movie screens during pivotal plot points. The techs also performer preventative services to repair faulty belts, leaky AC systems, and oil filters overdue for a change.
As the engineering and technology found in cars continues to evolve, so must the auto mechanic. Anthony and Mike – owners of Passaic Count Transmission – possess more than 40 years of experience between them, but they continue to attend multiple seminars with their staff each year to stay educated about the latest trends. Their dedication to car repair led them to earn certifications as master drivetrain technicians and recognition from The Automotive Transmission Rebuilder's Association and Automotive Service Excellence.
At Willowbrook Car Wash, streams of sudsy water banish filth from auto exteriors. In addition to cleaning car bodies, the techs clean wheels and tires, leaving hubcaps shiny enough for squirrels to check if they have anything in their teeth.
