The crew at BLS Mobile Auto Detailing understands the importance of science as it relates to cars. They take the time to understand the chemistry behind the products they use, ensuring to employ spot-free water polishers, cleaning agents, and paint restoration chemicals. They specialize in exotic and luxury cars, but also expertly care for cars of all makes and models by performing meticulous procedures such as hot-water upholstery cleaning, windshield treatments, and leather rejuvenation—and pass many of their basic techniques on to customers through instructional videos. They also perform details for specialty craft such as motorcycles, RVs, trucks, and planes.
The technicians at The Detailsmith don't treat their business as a factory. They think of it more as the workshop of a fine craftsman, where they draw from a well-honed toolbox of degreasers, stain removers, and polishes to ensure their efforts endure far past the next rain storm. In fact, they only schedule two jobs a day, which gives them plenty of time to peruse each nook and cranny with an electron microscope. They practice their detailing handiwork on an elite client list that includes the Sonoma County Office of Education, the Sebastopol Police Department, and the City of Santa Rosa. One of their signature services is the presale prep, performed for the likes of dealerships and private clients alike. The service gives cars a head-to-toe makeover using clay bars, professional-grade sealants, engine cleaners, and interior conditioners that repel UV rays.
Mobile Pro Detail is a fully self-contained car wash on wheels. Its technicians travel to homes and business armed with their own supply of water—which they filter and de-ionize to prevent spotting—and set to work detailing all manner of vehicle, from cars to airplanes. Each of their professional-grade cleaning products is nontoxic, and their process complies with EPA regulations, bringing autos show-room shines without drawing crowds of protesting redwoods.
Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, can trace their auto-repair roots back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop?just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with more than 30 locations, dozens of employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.
