For more than 20 years, the service technicians at Eastside Automotive & Tire have been keeping vehicles in top shape with a variety of maintenance and tire services. They perform routine oil changes and fix broken air-conditioning systems, and can replace nearly anything on a vehicle?including brakes, struts, batteries, and windshield wipers. Patrons can also have custom tires affixed to their car, choosing from aluminum-alloy or steel wheels that can be chrome-plated, powder-coated, or covered with your favorite baseball cards.
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
At Nik's Auto Salon, technicians polish cars with a special focus on paint maintenance, scratches, and oxidation. Detailing teams travel to any location in King and Snohomish county, cleaning nearly any type of vehicle, from cars and SUVs to motorhomes. They can also power wash dirty engines, remove tar from undercarriages, and ready cars for winter with coats of wax.

Specialty add-ons such as Aquapel rain repellant and leather conditioning augment wash-and-wax packages to restore rides to their showroom image.
The auto technicians at Derek's Auto Detail and Hand Car Wash revitalize vehicles with full-service scrubbings both inside and out. They clean cars from roof to tire with myriad services, all of which include hand washes.

Additionally, the auto aestheticians at Derek's offer specialized services such as enzyme-and-odor treatment and conditioning for leather seats and trim.
Rain is a constant companion in the Pacific Northwest, making the land lusciously green while leaving homes speckled with muddy spots and streaks. Suite Detail corrects this aquatic assault through powerful and preventative cleaning treatments. Technicians power wash away exterior mold and mildew using pure D-Limonene orange-peel solvent, and venture vertically to free gutters from pent-up gunk. The mobile cleaning company also extends its cleanses to grimy autos, sending crews to home or work to revitalize cars with hand washes, waxes, and gentle interior treatments.
