Fleet Services

Fleet Vehicle Repair and ServiceWhen your company’s vehicle has to be taken out of service, we at Cliff’s Direct Effect take this very seriously. Not only do we offer special rates and discounts to the Fleet customer, but we also provide a fast turn-around time. It is very common for our Service Techs to work over late or on weekends to return that vehicle back to service.

Current fleet service customers include Baltimore County, Baltimore City, and many local service companies such as plumbing, heating, AC, and electrical contractors.

Please contact us! We look forward to offering your business the Cliff’s Direct Effect advantage.


Tire Sales

    Bridgestone Tires        Dunlop Tires        Goodyear Tires

Falken Tires        Kumho Tires        Pirelli Tires

The Cliff’s Direct Effect tire department sells and installs all brands of tires, ranging from the most economical brand for the low mileage driver, to the high end brand for the high mileage driver.

We recently installed the latest technology in tire and wheel service, so the tire machine replaces your tire without touching the rim.  This is very important on newer vehicles because of the design and cost of a wheel.  Some wheels are polished, some are chrome plated, and many are actually clear coated.  This is why it is very important that the rim is not damaged while the tire is being installed.

Please call or stop in, so that we can explain your options when purchasing your tires.

Truck and SUV accessories are also on display.  A chrome Westin push bar backed up with a Strut custom grill and new step bars will let you step up into your own individually designed ride.  Take a tour now.

We have many hard to find catalogs and special order catalogs.  You can pull up a bar stool at our diamond plated counter and browse your heart away. Cliff’s Direct Effect tries to be very competitive when it comes to pricing.  We want our customers to be informed that if they find a cheaper price, they need to consider a very important difference.  You may save a few dollars by buying an item on-line, however, when you buy the item from Cliff’s Direct Effect, and you need it installed, we do that.  If there is a problem with the part or questions about installing the part; and you bought it at Cliff’s Direct Effect, our experienced counter people or one of our installation technicians can help and advise you on the spot.  On-line purchases can not offer this.

Bring your car, truck, or SUV to Cliff’s Direct Effect and let our experienced sales and installation staff advise you on your new vehicle accessories.
