Helmed by husband-and-wife duo Richard and Sandra Hameroff, Broadway Auto Clinic tends to the mechanical and aesthetic needs of vehicles foreign and domestic.

After developing a process to prevent cars from rusting in 1959, founder Kurt Ziebart continued to pursue automotive innovation, forming an international network of 400 locations in 30 countries. Skilled technicians update cars with a variety of detailing and protective services that keep paint jobs from fading and heal chipped windows. Their inventory contains a spread of accessories to personalize vehicles, including remote starters to heat vehicles in cold months, sunroofs to let in the summer's rays, and alarm systems to scare off falling leaves in autumn. Scratches and scuffmarks disappear with cosmetic touchups and tinted windows preserve privacy behind a thin layer of dimness. In addition to services for vehicles, Biddeford Ziebart also offers residential window tinting.
Supersonic Car Wash's automatic tunnels and attentive technicians expunge automotive dirt on the inside and out. During each Superwash package, tri-foams exterminate outer filth and seal in escape-minded shine with clear coat wax.

The three-to-four-hour interior and exterior detail kicks off with a full-service wash and wheel clean. As techs restore sheen to the outside fa?ade, staffers spread healthy gobs of shampoo across the carpets, seats, and mats in order to bully out spills and erase evidence of the carpool?s last pie-eating contest. Details conclude with an interior tidying, as techs spruce up surfaces and plastics and outfit panels in conditioners.

The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil-change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle.

More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with Saran wrap.
