The cleaning technicians at Technic Auto Center spruce up vehicles inside and out without shedding a single drop of water. The team uses environmentally friendly products, organic compounds, and a waterless wash system during each of their interior and exterior detailing packages. The waterless system captures and lifts dirt particles from the vehicle?s surface, allowing soft cloths to sweep in and remove the debris without scratching the paint or wiping off the car's smirk. Technic Auto Center also offers services such as headlight restoration, paint sealant, and sap removal at ? la carte rates.
The vehicle virtuosos at Vanegas & Sons rejuvenate roadsters during a 2.5-hour express detailing service. Each treatment begins with a gentle and thorough hand washing of external surfaces including doorjambs, wheel wells, wheels proper, and rubbery rollers. Techs then manually treat minor scrapes, scratches, and regrettable DeLorean tattoos then rub car coats with a clay bar, freeing automobiles of surface contaminants to leave the car with a smooth and clean shine. Car caretakers dry cars with chamois microfiber towels and blasts of compressed air, subsequently coating them in premium carnauba wax, which safeguards vehicle surfaces and sleekifies its finish. Inside, vacuums suction up dust, dirt, and nests of sentient french fries, carpets welcome spot-cleaning, and floor mats bathe in deep steam cleaning.
A gleaming Rolls-Royce parked front and center is not an uncommon occurrence at Keatley Detail, long the most trusted South of Market operation for an automotive deep clean. Interiors and exteriors alike emerge looking factory-fresh after one of their detailing treatments. Unlike the typical brushless car wash, Keatley offers a membership program of a few details per month, to keep that paint job shiny and maximize the resale value, should you ever look to sell your ride. Even waiting for your car to be cleaned is an upscale experience, with a waiting room that offers free WiFi, coffee and water. For fine-toothed detailing or to buff away the latest scratch and scrape that inevitably comes from parking on the street, Keatley Detail is the place to go.
The experienced technicians at The Bay Detail start each of their interior and exterior detailing services with a lofty goal: returning the automobile in question to the way it looked before it left the showroom floor. Starting outside, detailers hand wash exterior, remove paint imperfections with clay, and detail the trim all the way up to where the engine's tiny horses sleep. They pay similar attention to car interiors, whether they're restoring the vinyl, protecting carpets and floor mats with Scotchgard, or simply vacuuming up stray potato chip. In addition to their detailing packages, techs also perform more extensive services, including headlight restoration and window tinting.
Precision is key at Lee Auto Body & Mechanic. Whether the repairs are technical- or cosmetic-based, the staff uses advanced technology to help return automobiles back to their original states. For example, technicians use computer-assisted frame-measurement technology to repair body damage. This ensures that the end product possesses the original factory specifications, meaning it will look the same, drive the same, and still fit into its favorite tarp.
The techs use new technology on the cosmetic side of things, as well. Whether they’re performing minor touchups or major paint jobs, their factory-quality color-matching tools and state-of-the-art finishing systems keep cars’ original colors intact, unless customers opt for a complete auto-body makeover. In addition to all this, Lee Auto Body also restores vintage cars, rekindling their former glory with expert body and paint work.
For more than 30 years, Paul Dickerson has done his part to beautify the Bay Area's hilly streets. A fully insured car detailer, he cleans, polishes, and restores coaches out of an auto shop stocked with deluxe tools. An eco-friendly LaserWash cleanses cars without any contact from disgusting human fingers. Steam machines scour engines, restoring a like-new shine to pistons. Wet sand smoothes and polishes paint, and clay bars bounce dirt and grime hanging out in the tiny pores of car paint. These tools fit neatly into the back of Dickerson's cargo van, which he uses for mobile details. When he's not caring for cars, Paul devotes himself to giving back to the community through Fuel for Change, a program that transforms auto and gas profits into resources for humanitarian projects.
