Reasonable Carbon Removal service in VA

I have researched the threads on this subject and see the benefit of doing the maintenance. It is not a job I want to do myself. I have seen the references to helix13, visited their website and believe they offer a fair price for the service. That said, they are in Philly and I am in Richmond. Does anyone know of shops in VA that are experienced in this work who also provide the service for a fair price. Dealer prices are out of the question.

Just type in your zip code and make sure whatever place you choose offers the service:

Some will be more expensive than others. A dealership, for example, will probably cost a little more than a 3rd party shop even though they use the same BG equipment.

You can roadtrip to Helix in Philly! We charge a flat rate of $349 plus gaskets, if necessary, for walnut shell cleaning.

Thanks for the offer eric...

only prob is, I would have to go to AC while in the neighborhood which would cost me even more.

Out of curiosity, what is the turnaround time for the service in your shop in the event I decided to come up there and wait in your lobby?

I looked at your website, very impressive.

WOW that's super cheap. I might have to make the trip there. My fiend Andy got your intercooler installed on his 335i coupe by you guys a while ago and had nothing but great things to say. But seriously. That price.. it's almost $200 less than the next cheapest options near me. Sign me up soon!

Recommendation

Quick post here to recommend Luther @ Flemings automotive. Had my car done at 48K and the before and after pics I took were night and day. He did a great job on my car.
