Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.
When Classic Auto Spa & Express Care Center was established, the building that was already on the site was pulverized to create fill for the new structure. Thus began the center’s commitment to green practices. Its car wash works with eco-safe cleaners and mostly recycled water, using much less of the resource than customers would when washing their own cars in their driveways or bathtubs. What's more, used oil expended during oil changes in the lube center heats the building. As clients wait for their cars to be serviced, they relax in leather easy chairs, watch satellite television, hook up to a WiFi hotspot, or simply pass the time turning used air fresheners into upcycled necklaces.
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.
Tire Tech & Auto Repair Centers specializes in rubber treads, typically stocking between 2,500 and 3,000 tires styles at a time from makers such as Firestone, Bridgestone, and Michelin. The massive inventory stems from a company policy of working completely in-house rather than outsourcing any of its parts or services. This logic also explains the versatility of the company’s technicians, each of whom boast ASE certification and at least 10 years of experience in the auto industry. They draw on these credentials to perform maintenance and repairs, which range from diagnosing engine troubles to preventing air conditioners from spitting snow.
