While a standard wash (at say a car wash) can help your vehicle's appearance - such efforts fall short when balanced against a truely professional detail.

Client Testimonials

“I scheduled a day and time to have my windows tinted on my work truck with the salesman Dan. He was very helpful. I came in and had them done. The wait was not long and they look great. Dan was a great salesman and had awesome customer service. Thanks” Joe A., Weiler's Lawn & Landscape Inc

"Have been using the facility for 21 years.  Very happy with the new owner and his staff.  They just did my 2018 international and was pleased with the work and price. Keep up the Great Work will see you in the spring. "  11/18/2017  Ted S.

"APS has done excellent work again. I took my truck in for rustproofing and undercoating this time and they got it done quickly. I also had them install some accessory parts and Carlos did the same excellent job that he did on my window tint!  Thanks, guys!  Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed."  3/29/2018  Dan V.

 "I am very happy with the result of the rust protection undercoating.  The team did a very thorough job and now I can expect my truck to last for decades as rust is kept at bay.  Separately, they also did an exterior detailing of my filthy truck and it came back looking like new.  The manager, Ian, was very professional and friendly.  I'll be bringing my truck back for checkup/inspection service in the future."   2/4/2018  Gregor O.
