The technicians at Zips Car Wash serve two masters: speed and cleanliness. They perform their basic tunnel—one of their most popular services—in under three minutes. For more extensive services, they bust out soft cloths, soaps, and waxes. However, they're not only thinking about clean vehicles. They want to make sure the environment stays clean as well. To this end, they use eco-friendly cleaning products, and even capture, clean, and recycle the water run-off from their services.
Flawless Auto Works specializes in making auto bodies shine and motors purr. Staffers use an artist's touch when detailing domestic and foreign vehicles: every wash, drying, and wax is done by hand using soft microfiber and chamois cloths. This by-hand technique prevents scratches and other exterior damage that may occur when using a machine to wash autos. Vacuuming clears dust from every crevice, and chemical treatments fortify leather and vinyl upholstery. The auto shop also specializes in preventative maintenance, and can restore headlights and paint jobs to their factory-floor shines. And because detailers aren't paid commission, customers don't have to worry that their vehicles will receive a rush job.
