Masters of moving parts for more than three decades, the ASE–certified technicians at Automotive Services of Boston coddle cars inside and out
with comprehensive details and repair services. Technicians eschew rough automated wash tunnels for gentle hand washes and waxes, coaxing showroom shines out of even the most shopworn autos. Their maintenance menu also covers car-care concerns across the alphabet, from air-conditioner and brake repair to towing services and tune-ups for the glove box’s built-in xylophone. Each service comes backed by the added peace of mind contained in the shop’s 100% maintenance warranty.
Shield System Car Wash's three locations peel off automotive filth with soft cloths before slathering vehicles with shine-enhancing layers of foam, wax, and sealant. The five-minute wash whittles caked exteriors down to the original shape and showroom shine with triple-foam soaps and underbody rinses. Wheel and rim are cleansed with Tire Shine, plucking debris from car's lower extremities before applications of Shield sealant and Shield vivid wax glaze the car shell to give it a smooth, shiny veneer. Finally, doses of Shield ultrashine sealant cling to the finish to defend its sparkling luster against dirt and hitchhiking paparazzi.
At Lord's Detailing and Car Wash, technicians spurn mechanized car washes and opt to make over autos, boats, and even planes with their own two hands. With compulsive attention to detail and topnotch products, they swiftly hand scrub vehicles from roofs to tires and coat paint with wax to replenish moisture and shine. Inside cabs and trunks, they vanquish clutter before sudsing up carpets and reconditioning delicate leather, vinyl, or papier-m?ch? seats.
At A-Z Auto Center, brothers Billy and Fredy run the detailing, auto-body, and mechanical-repair shop started by their dad more than 40 years ago, earning remarks for their "rare integrity" on sites such as Citysearch. As members of a AAA Approved Auto Repair service center, A-Z's automotive technicians uphold ASE standards during every repair, from replacing windshields to matching multilayer factory finishes as closely as possible through a sophisticated paint system. To simplify the repair process, team members can provide free estimates via uploaded vehicle images as well as quickly process insurance claims through their fleet of carrier pigeons. They can also give customers lifts home or help coordinate car rentals should their vehicles require extended service.
With each cleaning, Bubbles Car Wash’s staff strives to leave cars thoroughly polished and shining. Customers choose a Single, Double, or Triple Bubble wash, with options that range from a basic bath and towel dry to a luxurious scrub that involves triple-foam polish and protective coats of Teflon. The auto experts and two-time finalists for CityVoter's Best Car Wash in 2011 and 2012 also venture into interiors during auto detailings, which evict grime and stains from seats and mats, and focus on their motto, "We don't sell car washes, we sell services." As car owners wait, they can surf the web on free WiFi.
It only makes sense that the auto detailers at Car Care are as mobile as the vehicles that they work on. Stocked with cleaning gear, their service vans travel around the Boston area before stopping at offices and homes. There, the detailers wash car exteriors by hand and venture inside to sweep, scrub, and condition all surfaces, including leather seats and miniature dance floors. Alternatively, the team also works out of four service locations. At these brick-and-mortar spots, the team replaces windshields, removes scratches, and executes all manner of auto body repair.
