Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am price shopping for a good detailer. What should I look for?
A: Remember you are trusting a company with the appearance of your vehicle. One mistake and it could mean the body shop. Proper detailing requires skill, training, and experience. Not just a bottle of wax and a cell phone. It’s not just about who has the cheapest pricing. When shopping for a detailer concern yourself with quality. Please remember it’s much cheaper to pay a little extra to have the job done right the first time, rather than to pay to again to have it done correctly the second time.
Q: My car doesn’t look bad yet. Should I have it detailed?
A: The answer is absolutely yes. Detailing is not about working fantastic miracles on vehicles once every couple years, it’s about maintenance. A vehicle should be properly detailed every 3 months if parked outside and once every 6 months if kept indoors. To solve the mystery if new cars come with wax on them or don’t need protection this is completely wrong. Every vehicle no matter what the age needs to be protected. Proper detailing of a vehicle increases it’s curb appeal and resale value.
Q: I’m collecting a new car. Why get it detailed before or right after delivery?
A: Contrary to popular belief, new cars rarely look their best. Despite being treated to a quick wash and polish by the dealership (which may even result in swirl marks caused by over-eager attention and wrong techniques), residue from the protective film that the vehicle wears during transportation may remain. Plus the vehicle may have been stored outside for a number of weeks or months near docks, railways, and other industrial areas before being treated to a light dusting of contaminates when transported on the road system or by railroad. Why not let Flawless Shine Auto Spa make the collection of your new vehicle to prep it for the Auto Spa treatment.
