Under the watchful gaze of Simoniz factory-trained technicians, Carolina Auto Spa's automatic tunnels bathe and wax cars' exteriors inside a modern wash arena. When they aren't scouring autos, technicians cleanse alternative transports, such as boats and saddled peacocks. Carolina Auto Spa also offers mobile detailing appointments for customers with busy schedules.
The gleaming rides that emerge from Shine My Ride Mobile Detailing's care are a far cry from their former selves. That's because the experienced mobile techs handle dirty rides from top to bottom, including seats matted with animal hair and paint covered in dried, crusty ice cream. Customers can opt for full detail packages that scour surfaces inside and out, or choose from a menu of à la carte services to handle specific areas such as foggy headlights or upholstery in need of a shampoo.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change package, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.

Cheu uses products from ABI Dermaceuticals to help skin breathe, glow, and ditch freeloading blackheads, and Donofrio's massages soothe muscles to relieve tension, instill calm, and preempt daydreams of swimming in a vat of pudding.
