Book Your Appointment

What can I expect when I drop my car off?

You will schedule a specific time to drop off your car, in most cases between 8 and 9. Around mid-day, you’ll receive a text message with a full vehicle inspection, complete with pictures, recommendations and educational videos to help you better understand the various components of your car. Give us a call when you have a few minutes to discuss – we will highlight anything that needs urgent attention and call out items we should monitory. We will finalize all repair and have your car ready for pick-up at the end of the day. We do offer early-bird drop off and late-night pick up. Call for more information.

Do you offer a shuttle service?

Due to the 6-ft requirement, we no longer offer shuttle rides and instead offer a concierge service (we pick up and drop off the car at your home or office) and loaner cars.

How are you ensuring my safety during COVID-19?

We have implemented four changes to keep you safe:

  1. No Contact Drop-Off – When you drop off your car, there will be a clipboard outside of our front door with your name on it. Fill in the required fields, sign and leave your keys on the clipboard. We will be right out to get started! If you have any questions at all, call us at 925-736-3100, or we can meet you outside and discuss with a few feet of distance.
  2. Sanitation Service for All Vehicles – Twice during your visit, we will sanitize all high-touch areas of the driver’s console. Using disinfecting wipes, we will wipe down inner and outer door handles, indicator signal stalks, radio buttons, seat belt and the steering wheel.
  3. Gloves and Masks When We’re in Your Car – Our staff wears gloves and masks anytime we are in your vehicle.
  4. No Contact Pick-Up – When your car is ready, we will send you a secure text-to-pay link, sanitize your vehicle and leave the keys in an agreed-upon location. Simply hop into your vehicle and head home!

We’re forward thinking – Cars are changing and so are our customers’ expectations. Our technicians receive regular training to stay at the top of their game. We are always adjusting our service offerings to deliver for our customers – from fully digital complete vehicle inspections to concierge pick-up and drop-off to maintenance packages and our Diamond Club.

Vehicle customization is a big business. It’s one of the fastest-growing industries in the world right now. With so many people looking to customize their vehicles and such an intense demand for these services, you might be thinking about getting into the business yourself. Read this article and learn more about the basics of vehicle customization.

What Are The Different Types Of Car Customization?

Performance Customization

    Performance customization is made to boost the performance of a car. This can be done by upgrading the engine, exhaust system, and other components that affect how it drives or handles on roads such as brakes and suspensions. Here is some sought-after customization:

Turbocharger Or Supercharger

    Turbocharging or supercharging can be used to increase engine performance. The process helps with increasing power output by improving torque delivery efficiently.

Transmission Upgrade

Another common upgrade that car owners often opt for is the transmission. A change in your gearbox can bring a whole new level of excitement and performance to any vehicle.

Brakes Upgrade

    The most vital character of the handling act is brakes. It's not just because they stop you in your tracks but also because braking systems are often upgraded for better performance, which means these important parts like master cylinders will be altered too.

Suspension Upgrades

    Suspension upgrades are an important factor in how well your car handles and stays balanced. Although most automobile makers carry out ample tests before putting up a new vehicle on the production line, many owners consider suspension adjustments for their driving style or to change what stance they have when sitting at stoplights, especially if it means getting closer attention from other drivers.

Exhaust System

    Many car owners consider purchasing a free-flow exhaust system for their vehicle because it not only improves the performance but also adds an exciting grumble to your engine. Muffler and air filter changes can all be considered as modifications just so you have different sounding pipes on hand when driving around town.

Functional Customization

    Functional modifications are those which change or add certain functions to the vehicle. Installation of sunroofs, air conditioning, and car phone come under this category but they can be more than just a modification for some people who like how these features make their ride more comfortable. Here is some sought-after customization:

Satellite Navigation System

    The satellite navigation system is an upgrade that most car manufacturers offer nowadays. This feature uses Global Positioning System (GPS) and creates the best route from point A to B, saving you time on your journey with little hassle, all this information can be accessed through a touch screen or voice prompts if desired.

Air Conditioning

    The air conditioning in a vehicle is also known as the heating and cooling system. The AC unit can be part of an engine's powertrain or it can be separate from the motor, depending on what kind of car you have. With this feature, people will get to enjoy more comfortable driving conditions during hot days or cold nights.

Car Phone 

    The phone in your car may be the next big thing to help you stay connected on the go. Car drivers can now use their phones without even touching them and make or receive calls, all through bluetooth compatibility with modern infotainment systems that offer this feature today.

Parking Sensors

    Parking sensors are great tools to help you avoid hitting things while parking. Parking sensors can be added on the side of your car, which will emit a warning sound when something is too close. If that doesn’t work for some reason you could also choose rear-view cameras or front view camera systems. This setup comes with an extra monitor in case one has blind spots and cannot see what might happen behind it.

Other Functional Accessories

    With so many different accessories, your conversion will be complete. The most common of these are roof racks and hand controls for additional lights on the outside to illuminate what's inside during nighttime drives or when trying not to peek out from behind curtains that might otherw

The Golden Era

    As the word of car customization spread, many companies began using this to advertise by placing their logos on vehicles. Custom builders then took it one step further and replaced even more auto parts including headlamp housings, bumpers, all while adding chrome. Sometimes they would strip away paint from original bumpers for an added touch. Other times you'll spot them with shiny new chromed-out components instead.

    In the 1950s, custom car builders began to incorporate body modification into their work. Bold colors and designs on vehicles became very popular in this decade as did even bolder looks for cars such as using candy apple red or metallic paints that created a glitter effect with flake paint application. In addition, hand-painted pinstripes emerged onto the scene too.

Vehicle Customization Today

    Today, customizing cars is more popular than ever before. Many people are turning to the customization of their rides for a personalized touch. Also, many builders have their TV shows. From engine modifications to paint jobs and accessories, customizing your ride can make it more personalized than ever before.
