Scott Sherman opened his eponymous shop because his previous dealership gig prevented him from spending enough time with each customer and their car. That was in 1952. More than 60 years later, the ASE-certified technicians at Scott Sherman Auto Care continue to operate under this original vision. The staff here prides itself on personal attention, which, along with their continued training and state-of-the-art equipment, allows them to service each vehicle with the care it requires.
The skilled team offers everything from oil changes to transmission work, getting cars back on the road before they start thinking about retiring in a nice sandy junkyard. And, ensuring owners receive the same level of service, the shop offers loaner vehicles as well as free shuttle rides for customers who need a lift while their car is being repaired.
The licensed and insured techs at Midnight Window Tinting coat panes of glass with light-subduing films by 3M, Suntek, Madico, and LLumar. Having installed films on more than 30,000 vehicles, they skillfully slather automotive windows with reflective, colored, and black tints that reduce heat, glare, and UV absorption while improving fuel efficiency and safety. If their tinting work isn't satisfactory, techs make it right by issuing refunds or snuffing out the sun.
In addition to auto-tinting jobs, Midnight Window Tinting also primps roadsters with accessories such as luxury rims and custom finishes. When not teaching cars how to be cool, techs also offer architectural tinting services.
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.
Emerald City Window Tinting & Signs Inc outfits cars with custom-fitted window and head- and taillight tints. Each layer of self-adhesive polyester film absorbs or reflects sunlight to help prevent interiors from overheating, upholstery from fading, or blinkers from clouding. The shop also coats home and office glass with plain and decorative films, which can help reduce glare, regulate interior temperature, and keep shards from flying when windows are broken by errant laser pointers. A collection of customized signs, such as banners and vinyl stickers, rounds out Emerald City's services.
At All Star Auto Glass, a seven-point list of standards guides technicians as they repair and replace or tint windshields using only high-quality materials. Each technician follows AGRSS standards, ensuring their skill in handling the special adhesives used during windshield installations and Spider-Man battle reenactments. All Star demonstrates its commitment to the community by partnering with Little League Baseball to support local charities.
You don't need a stopwatch to know that Jiffy Lube's services are fast, but if you had one, the Signature Service Oil Change would clock in at the 20-minute mark. And you'd be getting more than just an oil change. Jiffy Lube technicians also top off fluids, inflate tires, inspect key components, and diagnose issues before they happen?all in less time than it takes to replace a shattered windshield with Saran-Wrap.
This blend of speed, quality, and preventative maintenance is at the core of Jiffy Lube's mission to maximize a vehicle's lifespan and keep it out of the repair shop. More than 20,000 of its technicians have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). These experts can perform many of the manufacturer-recommended services offered at dealerships, including air-filtration and electrical services?only without the need for appointments or long wait times. An impressive feat, considering that Jiffy Lube serves roughly 24 million customers each year.
