Choosing one car cleaning place or another could have long lasting detrimental effects on your vehicle. So, how can this be? Aren't they all the same?
THEIR CAR WASH TROUBLES
Most automated car washes have scrubbers and brushes that literally whip and smack the dirt off of your vehicle, which is way too aggressive for paint surfaces. This heavy abrasive abuse will cause swirl marks also known as spider webbing. (Notice the photo of the car hood which has been taken through the car wash) This abuse coupled with aggressive chemicals and cleaners will strip the wax or sealant completely off your cars finish.
To make matters worse, you have no idea what type of vehicle passed through just a short time before you arrived. An off-road vehicle covered in mud could have a major effect on the cars that follow behind them. Those small pebbles, grime and dirt left behind will scratch your finish creating circular swirls in your paint's finish.
THOSE CHEAPER DETAILING JOBS
Unfortunately the quality is just not there for most of these bargain detailing businesses and if you think about it, that makes sense. They are not charging enough to do a great job and for most of these places, its all about the quickie. In and out. Quick wash, quick wax, quick vac and dust, DONE Not much in the way of quality. They will not take the time for the little things, and in our opinion its those little things that make a great quality detail.
It is not uncommon for these shops to misuse high speed buffers which will leave your car's finish with nasty swirl marks
These marks can easily be seen in the sunlight and are a result of uneven levels of your clear coat caused by improper use of a machine buffer. Fortunately his can be corrected by us, it just takes more time.
Most of these places use very poor quality waxes and sealants that last a fraction of the time a higher end brand would. These garbage products are a much cheaper in cost compared to the higher end products which is why most car washes and bargain auto detailers use them. Its not uncommon for these waxes to be completely worn away in just a few washes.
THE ZEBRA STRIPES
We aren't sure where this originated but it needs to STOP! Putting those stripes into the carpet is not only unnatural looking, its horrible looking ! You're vehicle did not come from the factory with stripes in the carpet. Run the other way if you find a detailer who does this. Rest assured, We will not do this to your interior!
These are photo results of a car AFTER getting detailed by a local detailing company. The old saying, you get what you pay for is very true in the auto detailing world.
Our shop is clean and organized which is the way we like it. We take spend a lot of time getting your car as perfect as we can. A typical detail takes an entire day, morning until closing time. Nothing is rushed and the work is done in a very methodical process. There is a reason why we have a strong reputation especially in the higher-end vehicle owners. TRUST and QUALITY.

We use the highest quality brands like Chemical Guys, Sonax, Leatherique, Rupes, Collinite, P21S, Meguires, 3M, etc. BTW, we sell most of the products that we use in the shop. Stop in for some great supplies and advice.
No machine brushes here ! Our details start with a 100% hand car wash and prep.
Don't worry about old rags and wash mitts - Ours are swapped out very often to insure a proper cleaning.
We use long lasting / high quality wax and sealants which will not deteriorate within a few washes or few weeks. This is a very common occurrence in most other shops.
For us, being number 1 is the only way to be. Some may not be interested in such quality that cost more then the bargain place down the street. It is understandable, this isn't for everyone. However, if you're looking or the best for your car, if you're looking for a safe place to bring your baby, then welcome home.
