Watsonville Auto Body’s technicians bring diverse training and certification—ASE and I-Car Gold Class Professionals, to name a few—to every damaged car that limps into their facility. Seldom do vehicles limp out, though, thanks to the techs’ meticulous collision repair and finish matching that returns frames, finishes, and fenders to their straight-from-the-factory glory. Structural ailments aren’t the only ones they remedy, though; onsite detailers also combat aesthetic blemishes on the inside and outside with washing, waxing, and buffing services. Watsonville Auto Body offers a lifetime warranty on all of their repairs as well as courtesy transportation within the immediate vicinity.
At Almaden Valley Window Washing, a small, family-run business operating for more than three decades, technicians use only child- and pet-safe cleaning products to oust gunk from homes' interiors and exteriors. Grime fighters free windows of light-blocking filth and relieve gutters of accumulated foliage or broomstick fibers dropped by migrating witches. The handy team can also refurbish houses' insides with home repairs or remodeling. Always attuned to homeowner's satisfaction, the company's landscape architects use meticulous techniques when coiffing hedges, installing gutter protectors, or painting decks with glow-in-the-dark bull's eyes for arriving UFOs.
At Deep Reflections Auto Detailers, clients don’t have to be an expert in automobile care to know they’re getting efficient, high-quality service. Techs take the time to explain to each customer—in layman’s terms—the condition of their vehicle, and they make customized recommendations based on each vehicle’s needs, from interior and exterior cleaning and detailing to paint touchups for the dark circles under an exhausted minivan’s headlights.
Staffers execute this thorough detailing with polymer-based Zaino products that polish and protect auto exteriors. When paint jobs need extra attention, they first restore luster with 3M and Menzerna products before applying Zaino as a finishing touch. While they specialize in durable shines, their detailing includes comprehensive cleanings with hand washes, vacuuming, vinyl conditioning, carpet shampooing, and more.
At The Car Spa, detailers use soft cloths, hand waxes, and shampoo to bring soiled vehicles back to a shiny state. Their sole focus is to remove interior and exterior filth, whether it’s a coffee spill soiling the carpet or a smudge of road grime tainting the finish. They target everyday wear with wash packages that include soft-cloth washes and a clear coat.
More advanced blemishes can be undone with a detail package; treatments such as buffing, polishing, and leather conditioning rekindle the car’s original glow and make it proud to roll down the assembly line at its 10-year factory reunion.
At Serio's Custom Detailing, a staff of speck-hunting specialists waits to restore buggy buddies back to their cleaner, shinier, more idealistic selves. The all-inclusive detailing service, known as the Full Auto Transformation, pampers painted surfaces with a hand wash, a chamois dry, and bug and tar removal. Technicians also break out a clay bar to pluck tiny contaminants from the car's surface and slop on two coats of a polymer sealant wax that grants long-lasting gleam. To cancel out window filth, the staff polishes windows inside and out, then rids doorjambs of grime and leftover toast crumbs before heading inside with vacuums and hot-water extractions to deep-cleanse carpets. A conditioner and a UV protectant team up to lustrate leathery surfaces, and any trunk gunk gets forcefully ejected before the detailing session comes to an end. Though each Full Auto Transformation takes a minimum of four hours to complete, service times vary depending on cars' original dirtiness.
The experienced techs at AJ Auto Detailing have been revamping rides for 28 years with an array of detailing services. Using ultra-purified water, technicians wash exteriors by hand before slathering painted surfaces with industry-standard polymer sealers and carnauba wax. They also eradicate oxidization, perform complete interior details, and steam clean engines to remove grease, oil, and any carrots lingering from the car's last collision with a produce stand.
