The unrealistic portrayal of cars in TV shows leads children to believe all cars have squealing tires, thunderous engines, and the guts to talk back to David Hasselhoff. Give your car a new image with today's Groupon: for $55, you get an exterior auto detail at Karworkz (up to a $110 value).
The industrious cleaners at Karworkz restore new-car looks to grime-covered vehicles of all sizes with expert detailing services. The exterior service starts off with a basic hand wash and chamois dry, where staffers whisk away bugs and tar, clean windows and mirrors, and wipe down doorjambs and dashboards. A machine buffer then works to remove light to medium scratches before a polish eradicates swirl marks, adding a magazine-cover gloss to roadsters' skin. Careful hands also apply a coat of wax; clean tires, rims, and wheel wells; and dress up tires in smart sailor’s suits. Because each detail takes about three to four hours, Karworkz stocks its waiting area with magazines and a television to keep car owners entertained while their babies get deep-cleaned. Before-and-after stories and photos serve as evidence of the detailers' ability to release the beautiful swan that could be lurking underneath the ugly duckling parked out back.
Husband-and-wife team Marcus and Tonya run Karworkz the old fashioned way: with hard work all done by hand. During services such as basic washes their team whips out the soft cloth and safely buffs cars clean, while complete detailing dolls up autos inside and out, shining everything from tires to ash trays. A multi-talented squad, they can also accomplish headlight restorations that clear away oxidation for brighter illumination, as well as upholstery repairs.
