ADS Mobile's 15 years in the business have taught the company that more is more. Every car that the company's mobile team of techs services receives a wash, a tire dressing, and a rim, glass, and well cleaning—no matter what service the auto came in for. Those services cover a broad range of aesthetic improvements including paint-job touchups to cover minor dings and scrapes and window tinting to help retired coal miners to adjust to life in full sun. Of course, an extensive repertoire of wash and detailing packages dominates the company's menu of services, including more exotic procedures such as the wet-sand treatment, which restores badly damaged paint to a fresh-from-the-showroom gleam.
The cleaning technicians at Technic Auto Center spruce up vehicles inside and out without shedding a single drop of water. The team uses environmentally friendly products, organic compounds, and a waterless wash system during each of their interior and exterior detailing packages. The waterless system captures and lifts dirt particles from the vehicle’s surface, allowing soft cloths to sweep in and remove the debris without scratching the paint or wiping off the car's smirk. Technic Auto Center also offers services such as headlight restoration, paint sealant, and sap removal at à la carte rates.
For nine years, the car buffs at Luxury Detail have maintained local automobiles of all kinds with meticulous detailing, restoration, painting, and repair. After gaining a reputation for its painstaking care and knowledge of luxury and unusual models, the family-owned shop expanded to a second location, now operating two shops in San Carlos and Sacramento. Standard car washes and detailing rely on eco-friendly products and the human touch, which allows for gentler and more precise attention to smudges and grime. Full detailing services even conclude with a q-tip finish to ensure sparkling perfection in the giant metal ears of every car, boat, and motorcycle. Window tinting, paint-less dent removal, and ClearBra paint protection further enhance modes of transit, and complete restoration allows the team to lovingly rescue rare coaches before releasing them back into their natural habitat of the bumper-car rink.
The vehicle virtuosos at Vanegas & Sons rejuvenate roadsters during a 2.5-hour express detailing service. Each treatment begins with a gentle and thorough hand washing of external surfaces including doorjambs, wheel wells, wheels proper, and rubbery rollers. Techs then manually treat minor scrapes, scratches, and regrettable DeLorean tattoos then rub car coats with a clay bar, freeing automobiles of surface contaminants to leave the car with a smooth and clean shine. Car caretakers dry cars with chamois microfiber towels and blasts of compressed air, subsequently coating them in premium carnauba wax, which safeguards vehicle surfaces and sleekifies its finish. Inside, vacuums suction up dust, dirt, and nests of sentient french fries, carpets welcome spot-cleaning, and floor mats bathe in deep steam cleaning.
Today's Groupon gets you a car wash, wax, and light interior cleaning at Keatley Detail, a new premium carwashery that pampers autos with the tender care most people reserve for friends, pets, and lonely mail carriers. You get a Stage One detail, which includes a thorough exterior wash that scrubs the bugs off the grill, gets the grime off the wheels and wheel wells, and rubs the muck off the underside of the bumper. The interior cleaning squeegies away peanut butter smears on the window, wipes off peanut butter on the dashboard, cleans the peanut butter out of the center console and door jams, vacuums up globs of peanut butter embedded in the carpet, and spoons old peanut butter out the ashtray to make a peanut butter sandwich. Then Keatley's detail-devotees slather your ride with a thick coat of wax until it gleams brighter than burning barrels of peanut butter.
Expert auto polishers at Premier Auto Detailing restore vehicles to their new-car shine with a menu of auto-detailing and hand-wash services. Each detailing service, much like getting a makeover next to Deepak Chopra, improves both interiors and exteriors, as the detail-orientated staff meticulously shampoo carpets, clean windows and rims, remove any oxidation, and protect paint from the sun with waxes.
The detailers at Auto Spa execute four treatments designed to restore cars, trucks, and SUVs to their glory days of flaunting shiny, flawless coats on the showroom floor. The team breaks out the sponges and soft cloths to hand wash exteriors—including wheels and tires—and adds meticulous touches such as clay-bar treatments and sealants to protect paint jobs and seal in gloss. They also tackle interior grime, refreshing carpets and mats with vacuuming and shampooing, conditioning leather and vinyl, and excavating fossilized french fries under seats.
