4 Questions To Ask Before Having Your Car Professionally Detailed

Having your car professionally detailed is a great way to get it looking its absolute best both inside and out. Whether you want to have your car detailed simply because you take pride in it or because you're looking to sell it in the near future, one fact remains: not all auto detailing services are created equal. Before you choose an auto detailing service to trust with your vehicle, there are a few important questions worth asking.

Do You Detail By Hand or Machine?

Ideally, you'll want to find a detailing company that still relies on its employees to manually detail each vehicle inside and out. After all, while machine detailing technology has come a long way in the past decade or so, it's still possible that spots will be missed with machine detailing. Having the work done manually by experienced detailers who take pride in their work will be a better option.

How Long of a Guarantee Do You Offer?

Any reputable auto detailing service should include some form of guarantee or warranty with their services. If not, then this should be seen as a huge red flag. The specific guarantee included can vary, but at the very least, your detailer should be willing to "touch up" any spots on the interior or exterior of your car that are not up to your satisfaction within a few days of your detailing service.

Do You Use Detailer Clay?

When it comes to removing debris, dirt, and dust from the smallest crevices of your car's interior, detailer clay is an absolute must. If you ask a detailer whether or not they use this clay and they don't seem to know what you're talking about, it's time to look elsewhere because you're simply not going to get a thorough cleaning job without it.

What Types of Package Options Do You Offer?

Last but not least, make sure the auto detailing service you end up choosing offers a package that suits your needs and budget. In some cases, you may even be able to "build your own" customized detailing package. This could include anything from interior detailing and exterior detailing to waxing, shampooing carpets, and more.

Choosing the right detailing company to trust with your vehicle will take some time and consideration. When all is said and done, though, you'll end up with a car that looks as clean as the day you drove it home!

About Me

Every time I buy a used car, I take the time to have it detailed. It's amazing the difference it can make in the look, smell, and even the overall feel of the car. The last time I took one in, I asked my detailer if he'd take the time to show me how it all works. Getting a behind-the-scenes look at the process really helped me to understand what I'm paying for. I decided to create a blog that explains what I learned, what you can do on your own to care for your car, and what is really worth investing in a detailer for. I hope the information helps you take care of your ride.
