Merkel Auto Detail
At Merkel Auto Detail, the technicians' work is genuinely detailed. Their careful work is most apparent in their signature exterior and interior detail, which is a veritable smorgasbord of 17 cleaning services. That list ranges from tire dressing and mat shampooing to smaller-scale tasks, like cleaning the inside of the gas cap and de-linting the vehicle's bellybutton. The mobile team visits cars wherever they're parked and will happily come back for a free follow-up cleaning up to four days after the original detail.
“This is a great company. They did a superb job. They ran late and moved the service a day later so they gave me an upgrade.”
