What can you do with ten minutes? Boil an egg? Watch one-third of a sitcom? If you're one of the technicians at Express Oil Change and Service Center?, your answer is a lot more impressive: complete an oil change. During their famous 10-minute express service, technicians swap in up to five quarts of fresh motor oil, install a new filter, and complete a 20-point inspection to make sure the rest of the car is running well. Their expertise doesn't end there; within their well-stocked service bays, technicians complete repairs on systems ranging from brakes to air conditioning.

The tour guides at H&L Enterprises of WNY LLC love showing people around town.

This allows farmers to count their livestock and entrepreneurs to scope out land they plan to purchase.
