If customers come into the shop at Five Star LLC Mobile Auto Detailing, they won't have to wait around while the detailers scrub their cars' interior, remove bugs and tar, and steam clean the trunk. That's because the shop offers pickup and drop-off services for clients who need to go home or go to work. Convenient as that sounds, there's actually an easier way to enlist the detailers help: schedule a mobile detail, during which the technicians will work their magic at the customer's workplace, driveway, or private shrine to John Candy, "Candyland."
Armed with their in-house line of cleaning products, Downey Company Protec's detailing technicians clean vehicles during in-shop and mobile detailing services.

While waiting for services, customers can nab bottles of Protec's products—car-wash concentrate, exterior gloss preserver, or spot remover—for at-home auto pampering.

The fine cheese party-plate of detailing, Liquid Luster’s mobile service provides a variety of cleansing treatments in a conveniently portable format.
