FAQs

  • Introduction

    Most car owners know the importance of regular oil changes, tire rotations, and other routine maintenance. When it comes to a car's physical appearance, however, many people think that a quick washing is all their vehicle needs. Although modern cars are built to resist road grime and harsh weather conditions, these things can take a toll on your vehicle's looks over time. In some cases, foul odors and mold can develop inside a car, which can lead to an unpleasant ride or even make you sick.

    If your vehicle has seen better days, running it through a car wash may not be enough. Auto detailing can remove cosmetic flaws, protect against body damage, and make your vehicle look new again.
  • What does detailing a car mean?

    Car detailing is a professional service that goes beyond a basic wash, wax, and polish. A full detail cleans a vehicle both inside and out, including beneath the seats, wheel wells, and other areas that often get overlooked. It can also remove scratches, stains, and odors as well as protect the car from future wear and tear.

  • Should I get my car detailed before trading it in?

    A car that looks its best will be more attractive to a dealer than a dirty one. If your car is covered in filth, has stained seats, or smells bad on the inside, consider getting it detailed before you trade it in. Your detailed car will make a good first impression, which can raise the chances of getting a better trade offer.

  • Should I detail my car?

    While many people think an occasional car wash is all they need, that's actually not the case. Detailing not only makes your vehicle look beautiful, but it also protects its paint and other surfaces from scratches and stains. This damage can reduce the life of your car and add up to costly repairs.

  • How long does a detail last?

    This depends on several factors, including how often you drive the vehicle, road conditions, and the climate in which it's driven. A detail will last much longer for cars parked inside a garage instead of on the street where it's exposed to the elements. Generally, you should expect a detail to last for at least a few months.

  • Who details cars?

    Car detailing is typically done by a specialty shop, which can be independently run or part of a larger business. Car detail shops are not the same as car washes, which often use a mechanical washing process that cleans the outside of the vehicle only. Detailers use professional products and equipment, and all of their work is done by hand.

  • Do dealerships detail cars?

    Many dealerships have a detailing department, but automotive experts generally don't recommend using their services. Dealerships tend to charge more for detailing than an independent shop. They can also have dirty or outdated equipment that may do your car more harm than good.
