Road dirt and grime fall away at the first touch of Full Service Car Wash’s soft cloths and liquid soaps. At any of its four locations, automatic tunnels lavish cars from roof to undercarriage with rust-preventing waxes, triple-coat paint shields, and clear-coat polysealants that rebuild the vehicle’s glossy and reflective finish. For more extensive auto care, they’ll shampoo the seats clean and machine polish the finish in the detailing center.
Scrub A Dub carwash and oil-change centers have been popping up around the Metro Milwaukee Area since the company's origins in 1947. A team of AOCA-certified lube technicians mans each garage, expertly administering professional oil changes and a wide range of transmission, radiator, and other automotive repair services. Each center is home to an advanced automated carwash system, which uses gentle cleaners, conditioning waxes, and premium polishes to gussy up automobile exteriors.
At Diamond Brite Auto Detailing, cleaning crews restore cars of all shapes and sizes with interior and exterior detailing services. They hand-wash and wax surfaces, removing scratches and ridding tires of dirt and muck. On the inside, the team vacuums and steam-cleans carpets and upholstery, wipes down the dash before applying a vinyl protectant, and removes stork nests attached to the roof. Aside from auto detailing, Diamond Brite creates custom paint jobs for cars, repairs or replaces cracked windshields, and removes road paint and overspray. The garage can also detail cars while customers are at work with their free pickup and delivery service.
Helmed by a pair of local muscle-car enthusiasts, Apex Autosports restores freshly minted speedsters and tottering jalopies alike to their pinnacles of performance and aesthetics with a full range of services. During the 3–4-hour detailing, the Apex crew meticulously removes built-up grime and clouds of chrome-eating bats from every fender nook and door cranny with an exterior hand wash. Next, an interior detailing shampoos carpets and de-gunks surfaces so that moss-covered dashboards are once again distinguishable from fuzzy dice. To keep cars from falling apart during daily jaunts to the pet store for more whale food, an Apex mechanic will subject steel steeds to an exacting mechanical inspection that identifies issues before they pupate into problems. For optimal service, Apex recommends that customers drop off grungy autos the night before so technicians can start work immediately at 7 a.m. the next day.
The platinum wash comes with a pre-soak wash, the extensive triple-foam treatment, a high-pressure rinsing, and a thorough blow-dry. It also includes an underbody wash to cleanse the car's ticklish belly, plus a cherry wax that leaves your car spotless, shimmering, and ready for a midnight cruise in the hallways of your old high school. Each customer receives a personalized sticker that is automatically read by a machine, eliminating the need to fuss with leaving the car. Once the wash's domesticated terminators scan the barcode, simply drive into the wash for a quick four- to five-minute auto-bath. If any problems arise, a responsive human staff member will be on hand to help you and your bucket of soon-to-be-clean bolts get through the process.
