Drink and Drive Intelligently assembles a team of professional designated drivers who keep more than 250 intoxicated drivers off the streets each week. Registered customers can call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and a duo of well-mannered chauffeurs will arrive within 30 minutes to ferry both customer and car home. While one driver commandeers the customer's vehicle and follows GPS-aided directions, the other follows closely. Once the customer's car is parked, locked, and read a bedtime story from the Kelley Blue Book, the keys are returned to their owner before the drivers head back to base.
Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).
Having opened nearly 900 locations in the United States since its inception in 1972, Meineke Car Care Center's steadfast staff revamps vehicles during a slew of automotive maintenance and repair services. Meineke's technicians will drain oil laden with built-up impurities or 3,000 miles of emotional baggage, or outfit rides with new brakes, batteries, tires, or mufflers. For customers' convenience, Meineke is open in the early morning, in the early evening, and on Saturday.
In 1938, Charles “Red” Schoonover borrowed $50 and used it to found Schoonover Bodyworks & Glass, a family business that has passed through generations of Schoonovers over the past seven decades. Nowadays, the center honors its founder’s commitment to quality repairs with guarantees against workmanship faults, valid as long as clients own their cars. The guarantee covers maintenance procedures—such as oil changes and system flushes—as well as full-scale repairs. Technicians can match Sikkens paint to existing bodywork, concealing scrapes without hiding the entire car behind a weird-shaped tree, or revamp cratered exteriors with paintless dent removal. Glass repairs in the onsite shop include chip fixes and full replacement of windshields, sunroofs, and windows.

The facility's extensive stock of Goodyear tires prove how far we’ve come since wheels were made of stone and used chewing gum. In the waiting room, drivers can help themselves to free coffee, popcorn, and WiFi.
