What is Detail ?

( Product + Equipment + Expertise ) X Time = Detail

If there ever was a “formula” to explain detailing it would be my formula above.

Detail needs the use of quality products, specialized equipment as well an expert/ise to do the job. It also takes time! Miss any element you skew the result!

Detailing goes beyond the normal services you would get at a car wash, valet center or spray painter. These businesses work on a production basis. The more cars through the more money they make. To do this they need to spend as little time on your car. They will also always look at ways to lower cost particular on Products, Equipment and labour force. So If you buy “detail” from sources such as these, the results will be always be equal to it.

Detailing is intensive and thorough cleaning, polishing, restoration and protection of any part of a vehicle whether its the exterior or interior.

To get a better idea of detailing consider these examples showing the lack of detail: 

  1. A body shop may polish the car but leaves traces of polish everywhere …
  2. Car washes, valet centers and even body shops typically uses only one machine, one pad size and cost cutting polish products to get any and every car out and done in the same way. This approach will leave many areas of the car underdone, unrefined and likely with holograms, burned edges (i.e. no paint!) and damaged or stained rubber and plastic trim.
  3. 3 Stage polishing – this is a throwback to older polishing systems using non diminishing compounds. Today’s technology minimises these steps perhaps down to even one like in our Paint Enhancement package. To give you great look and preserving your paint!
