For 15 years, Lansing Detail & Hand Car Wash has been restoring the showroom sheen of cars, trucks, and motorcycles with meticulous automotive cleaning services. Technicians plow through surface dirt and grime by hand and tidy up interiors with towels, cleaning solutions, and shampoo. The company’s commitment to cleaning has earned them contracts with local dealerships, and they further service customers by detailing their vehicles at their homes or workplaces.
In family hands since 1967, Schroeder’s Body Shop & RV Repair employs technicians to restore a clean sheen to scuffed-up vehicles and attends to all manner of RV needs. Automotive wash-downs ($130 value) bring customer vehicles to the able hands of Schroeder’s car-wash technicians, who spend one hour to two hours hand-washing and drying the buggy and ensuring it won't gradually turn into a pumpkin. After a thorough chassis sluicing, window blasting, and wheel washing, technicians dress tires to the nines and cover the vehicle in wax to prevent the shine from escaping back into nearby jewelry stores.
The experienced technicians at Detailing Dynamics tinker with cars on the inside and out with detailing services, electronics installations, and window tinting. Some technicians cleanse vehicles with microfiber cloths and apply carnauba wax and engine sealant, and others darken windows and install audio and video systems for cars, boats, and bike-powered helicopters. A cadre of aftermarket parts and accessories boasts members from major brands, such as Gibson and Dynamic Motorsports. In addition to bolstering consumers' vehicles, technicians also perform services for dealers and businesses, including machine buffing, heated extraction, and odor elimination. While technicians ferry cars to and from homes with free pick-up and delivery for most services, drivers can also pass midservice minutes in a waiting room equipped with free WiFi.
The owner of Bloomfield Auto Spa takes a hands-on approach to car care. On a 5,000-square-foot plot of secluded land, technicians pamper vehicles with high-end products and meticulous detailing services. Instead of soap and water, staffers use steam to clean carpets and extract grease, dirt, and odors from the fibers. Washes include a complimentary vacuum, wipedown of the interior, and cleaning of the windows, wheels, and tires. The crew also picks up and returns vehicles to and from homes, the golf course, or Matchbox carrying cases.
Carsmetology's techs reactivate the faded glow of cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans with detailing services enhanced by Meguiar's carnauba wax. The experienced technicians burrow into every crevice with scrubbers and vacuums, taking four to five hours to administer the complete exterior and interior detailing. For those with less time to spare, they also execute express detailing services. They efficiently lather carpets with shampoos, condition leather surfaces, wipe down windows, and free seats from dirty stains or beaded covers that have started to fossilize. Additionally, they can detail boats and RVs, acid washing exteriors and pressure-washing carpets.
Champion Car Wash & Detailing returns soiled roadsters to showroom shape with hands-free, soft-cloth car washes. Prepare motorized chariots for a clean competition with the Champion car-wash package. Each process begins with a presoak that loosens caked-on dirt and makeup from clown-car auditions before a gentle-touch cleaning and undercarriage wash expunge roadway detritus. Technicians eliminate the aftereffects of swimming in puddly potholes with a wheel cleaning and tire shine, and a triple-foam polish multiplies surface shine. Cleanses conclude with a coat of preventive protectant, and Simoniz double-bond sealant keeps paint safe from the sun's relentless UV rays and the moon's off-target spitballs for up to 30 days. After a 100% microfiber towel dry, autos can continue the vehicular spa day with 10% off an interior or exterior detailing.
