Armed with biodegradable products safe for children and pets, White's Mobile Detail's team of experts carefully cleanses vehicles at patrons' parking spots or at its Pleasanton facility. Staffers treat autos to weekly, bi-monthly, and monthly check-ins, or dole out one-time deals with a range of detailing packages. They hand wash and dry exteriors, preserve paint’s luster with Meguiar’s wax, and dress tires to protect them from dirt and the sniffles. Indoors, the team releases snarling vacuum hoses to suck debris from the cabins and trunk, and massages carpets and upholstery with shampoo and leather and vinyl surfaces with conditioners. White’s Mobile Detail treats vehicles of all sizes, from cars to extra-large SUVs, and totes all its equipment to off-site locations.

During the oil change, an experienced technician removes the worn-out filter and purges old motor oil, then replaces them with a fresh filter and up to five quarts of standard vehicular blood. The full engine inspection includes a thorough diagnosis of all your auto's mechanical components from its gears to its belts to its throat dangly. Owners of the newly rejuvenated motor carriage receive a computerized evaluation that details existing issues and points out potential future complications. The entire service package, including the oil change and inspection, takes about 45 minutes—long enough to lounge in the waiting room, peruse a few magazines, sip a cup of complimentary coffee, or twiddle the thumbs of a fellow waitee.
