Before car detailing, wax only existed for candle making and polishing the king’s collection of Most Improved King trophies. Give your car the royal treatment with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $75 for one exterior wash and interior detailing for a small or medium vehicle (a $150 value)
- $95 for one exterior wash and interior detailing for a large vehicle, truck, or SUV (a $200 value)
- $36 for three exterior washes for a small to midsized car (a $75 value)<p>
For both types of services, an experienced technician travels to the vehicle of your choice with cleaning products and equipment. During the exterior wash, he scrubs the car’s shell by hand for 30 minutes. During the four- to five-hour interior and exterior detailing service, he vacuums the interior and extracts dirt and odours using high-temperature steam. After removing dust and grease from seats, he restores leather’s sheen with conditioner and shields vinyl from UV rays using protectant products. The tech then erases streaks and smudges from window glass and washes and waxes the exterior. If the paint is scratched, he may use a rotary polisher to buff away a thin layer of the paint’s clear coat.<p>
Raptor Mobile Auto Detailing
On paper, Kevin Toms might be mistaken for Picasso. His knowledge about paint is extensive, and he can spot a subpar etching in seconds. Instead of using this expertise to paint and sculpt, Kevin makes automobiles gleam through his business, Raptor Mobile Auto Detailing. Most days, doors and hoods serve as canvases for his buffing skills. Armed with rotary and random-orbit polishers, he erases scratches by removing an ultrathin layer of the vehicle's clear coat. To make the exterior as smooth and shiny as Orion after a hot-lather shave, he chooses polish and wax that's tailored to the needs of its paint type and colour.
Scratch repair isn't Kevin's only specialty. A human cleaning machine, he travels to homes and offices to detail cars, trucks, trailers, and emergency vehicles. There, he washes car shells by hand and deep-cleans interiors using vacuums, hot steam, and conditioners formulated especially for leather. To ready vehicles for sale or display, he can also polish chrome rims and aluminum checker plates.
