Vehicles pulling out of Matt & Jeff's Car Wash gleam like a car that just emerged from the showroom or one of Henry Ford's thought bubbles. This full-service facility promises multiple ways to reinvigorate your automobile, from express washes to advanced details. Everyday since 1996, either Matt or Jeff (the owners) have been on site to give personal attention to their customers. This special level of service has contributed to the business being voted Best of Marin multiple times. The wash tunnel coats cars in 60-day wax, clear coat protectant, and Rain-X, while detailers use duel-headed polishers, carpet steam cleaning, and clay magic on the interior and exterior. Premium imported polishes and waxes from Brazil, Germany, and Australia are utilized. There's also an onsite gift shop that sells unique gifts, candles, and greeting cards. They even have a School Fuel program where, for every gallon of gas they sell, they give 1 penny to schools. So far they have given over $170,000.
A gleaming Rolls-Royce parked front and center is not an uncommon occurrence at Keatley Detail, long the most trusted South of Market operation for an automotive deep clean. Interiors and exteriors alike emerge looking factory-fresh after one of their detailing treatments. Unlike the typical brushless car wash, Keatley offers a membership program of a few details per month, to keep that paint job shiny and maximize the resale value, should you ever look to sell your ride. Even waiting for your car to be cleaned is an upscale experience, with a waiting room that offers free WiFi, coffee and water. For fine-toothed detailing or to buff away the latest scratch and scrape that inevitably comes from parking on the street, Keatley Detail is the place to go.
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 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.
