Things to Check When Choosing a Detailer

The issue of car maintenance is one of the most important factors when it comes to determining its value later on. The problem with this concept, however, lies in the fact that you can’t do it all on your own. For this reason, locating an ideal car wash is paramount. This is why it’s incredibly important that you find the right detailer. Still, how does one tell right from wrong? In order to answer this pivotal question, here are several things you need to check when choosing a detailer.

The range of services

Washing your car in the standard way may be something that you’ll need most often, however, it’s not all that you’ll ever need from a detailer. Other than this, from time to time, you’ll also need things like headlight refurbishment, oxidized paint removal, polishing, chrome cleaning and the removal of rust from chrome. Depending on the needs of your vehicle, you may also prefer a detailer that offers hand washing and drying. Sure this tends to be a lot more expensive, yet it’s something that gets you a lot of value for what it’s worth.

The location

Another thing you need to keep in mind is the fact that keeping your car looking new requires regular maintenance. The longer you let particles of dust and smog, as well as bird droppings, stay on your car’s bodywork, the more damage they’ll do. Sure, the vehicle may appear just dusty but these are actually harmful particles, some of which contain chemicals that can deteriorate your car’s outer layers. Since you’ll have to take your vehicle there quite often to prevent it, the location of the car wash is paramount. Not only will this save time but it will also reduce the time and resources spent on the commute. Therefore, Sydneysiders should start looking for quality car detailing in Sydney.

The cost

Naturally, due to the fact that you’ll need these services quite often, what you’ll also need to check is the cost of their services. Here, there’s no general rule and you need to survey the detailers in the area and compare their prices. Remember that you don’t necessarily want to go for the cheapest of options. Think about why this particular option is so cheap. Think about it, if you were to undergo a surgical procedure, would you be willing to do so with the cheapest, least experienced surgeon just because they’re the cheapest?

Accessibility of services

Ideally, you would want to look for detailing services that are available 24/7. Why? Well, mostly because you never know when you’ll find yourself in an emergency to clean your vehicle. Of course, this is far from being a priority and it’s usually not a problem to wait until the morning. The thing is, however, that you don’t really have to do this. Therefore, having 24/7 services available is a nice plus.

Interior detailing 

For a luxury car, the interior is just as delicate and important as the exterior. This is why you need someone who is skilled and experienced when it comes to cleaning leather, luxurious upholstery, expensive car carpets and fine windows. Keep in mind that all of this is more complex than it sounds and pay attention to the fact that just because someone claims that they can do this it doesn’t mean that they really can. Before trusting them with your vehicle, make sure to check if they know what they’re talking about. The simplest way to do so is to look for reviews and ratings online. Thanks to Google Reviews and Google My Business, this is no longer that hard.


In the end, choosing a detailer may seem like a lot of work but it’s something that you need to do properly only once and then you get to take your vehicle there for months and years. Also, keep in mind that the chance that they’ll actually damage your car isn’t substantial. This means that if you are unhappy with their services, you can always change your detailer.
