Making sure your car is as clean as the day it followed you home is important for maintaining man/machine friendship, which, if neglected, can lead to heartbreak and engine failure. Solidify your bond with today's Groupon: for $55, you get an executive detail for a small or medium-size car from Miranda Detailing (up to a $110 value). Customers outside a 15-mile radius from Miranda Detailing's location may incur a travel fee of up to $15.
Miranda Detailing's husband and wife team of mobile car swabbers corners unsuspecting vehicles in their driveways, divesting them of built-up dirt and impacted insects through executive detailing sessions. Metal-coddling microfiber sponges in hand, car cleansers anoint sedans, hatchbacks, and small SUVs with a ph-balanced shampoo before thoroughly polishing away dirt and grime until chassis reflect the smug gazes of vain roadside cones. Trunks and interiors are lavished with similar care as techs vacuum upholstered surfaces and wipe down hard surfaces with gentle water-based cleaners. A durable machine-applied wax tops off the treatment, adding an extra layer of gloss and protection that can last for up to three months.
Designed for autos in fair to moderate condition, the executive detailing session does not guarantee that excessively stained or pet-hair-ridden rides will be fully cleaned in the allotted 60- to 90-minute time slot, though upgrades are available. Trucks, SUVs, minivans, and larger vehicles may incur an additional fee of up to $30, depending on their size and how much they kick and scream in protest of bath time.
