Driving a shiny car is a great way to experience luxurious transportation without the hassle of chartering a yacht or riding a peacock to work.

Click here for a list of valid service areas.
Bay Area Mobile Auto Detailing's technicians arrive at the customer's location armed with pressure washers, buffers, and steam cleaners and ready to thoroughly detoxify dirty cars. During a two- to four-hour Diamond detail, the traveling techs blast clingy tar and road film from the frame with a hot-pressure washer. After shining the rims and touching-up tires, detailers purify the body paint with a clay bar and buff the frame to a velvety finish before ensuring auto pigments are as glossy as a laminated dolphin with two coats of carnauba wax and emblazoning polish.
Meanwhile, techs prep interiors with a vacuuming and a spot clean before flushing-out stains in the seats with sanitizing shampoos and steam cleaning the carpets. Then the detailers administer an engine de-greasing, peeling performance-obstructers, such as layers of grime and the remains of the last stegosaurus, off the motor before dispelling residual slime with a pressure wash. To cap off the extensive service, the car tenders clarify headlights with a restoration for renewed visibility.
