3 things should check before selecting a car detailer in city

by Mark D. Car Detailing and Car Cleaning Services

Choosing a professional detailing service is an important decision. Your vehicle is one of the biggest purchases you’ll make after your home. It’s important to protect that investment. There are some people who claim to be detailers who simply do not have the skills, tools, and time to detail correctly. Poor detailing can do more harm than good, and it can mean more money and time to correct what a “detailer” without the correct skills, tools, and time has done to your vehicle. It’s important to choose the right car detailer the first time.

Cost. Price shopping is normal, but a price that is significantly lower than other detailers in the area is often a reflection of the quality of work you’re going to get. It is truly a situation where you’ll get what you pay for: inexperience, low-quality products and tools, and not enough time spent to get the job right. For instance, here at Officer Car Detailing, we often won’t touch a paint correction job for less than $500, because polishing is a very time-consuming project and takes a lot of training to get it right. Another thing you should expect from a professional auto detailer is a request to see your vehicle before finalizing their quote. Don’t expect a detailer to give you the final price over the phone because we need to see the vehicle in person and in the right light to assess if your vehicle has any unique problem areas that may require extra time or equipment.

Time commitment. If there’s only one technician on the vehicle, even a standard detail that includes interior and exterior can take 4 to 5 hours. You’re simply not getting the same quality from a place that says they can do the job in an hour.

Reviews. As with any business, reviews can be helpful. Check out multiple places for reviews. You shouldn’t be expecting perfection; in fact, if every review is 5-star, there are some very legitimate reasons to stay away: first, they may not have been around long enough to have very many reviews (a new detailer can be good, but you should always be cautious when you’re working with someone who doesn’t have much experience); or they could be removing bad reviews or paying for good reviews (a pro should be able to learn from their mistakes and shouldn’t have to pay for good reviews).
