Grease Monkey?s preventative maintenance professionals provide street pilots with wide-reaching, proactive auto treatments. The road to extended motor vehicle life begins with a 16-point safety inspection to listen to engine purrs and measure mud-flap flappiness levels. The staff then fills tires with delicious nitrogen, a road hugger?s preferred between-meal snack (a $19.99 value), before expertly rotating wheels in perfect circles (a $19.99 value).
You don't need a stopwatch to know that Jiffy Lube's services are fast, but if you had one, the Signature Service Oil Change would clock in at the 20-minute mark. And you'd be getting more than just an oil change. Jiffy Lube technicians also top off fluids, inflate tires, inspect key components, and diagnose issues before they happen?all in less time than it takes to replace a shattered windshield with Saran-Wrap.
This blend of speed, quality, and preventative maintenance is at the core of Jiffy Lube's mission to maximize a vehicle's lifespan and keep it out of the repair shop. More than 20,000 of its technicians have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). These experts can perform many of the manufacturer-recommended services offered at dealerships, including air-filtration and electrical services?only without the need for appointments or long wait times. An impressive feat, considering that Jiffy Lube serves roughly 24 million customers each year.
Junk King?s red trucks travel to houses around the country to clear homes of clutter while maintaining environmentally safe practices. Friendly haulers give customers a call when they're en route, then cart away anything except hazardous materials, including garden clippings, outmoded furnishings, and cursed Cadillac trunks. The refuse rangers sort through everything they take away, donating what they can to charity, recycling what they can?t, and even sweeping up when the job is done. Junk King strives to recycle more than what they collect. All appointments are scheduled within two-hour time frames, often with same- or next-day service.

Jet Chevrolet?s team of ASE-certified mechanics keeps engines purring prettily with services including preventive oil changes, tire rotations, and diagnostic checks. Each oil-change appointment begins with an exacting 27-point inspection, which tests cars for mechanical troubles, latent problems, and the ability to count to 27. Technicians sift up to 6 quarts of fresh standard oil through a newly installed filter to lubricate delicate moving parts and keep contaminants at bay. A new pair of wiper blades and an Accuvision windshield treatment help fling water out of lines of sight on rainy days. Techs also check and set tire pressure, and rotate rubbers according to amount of wear, manufacturer?s specifications, or callers? insistence upon a do-si-do.
