Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have any questions about Auto Detailing Vancouver before you call?
So, down below, you’ll find a few of the most common questions we get from clients – and our answers!
What are the advantages of using an auto detailing service?
Regular detailing not only keeps your vehicle looking its best. However, it has additional advantages. Auto detailing helps to protect surfaces such as upholstery and dashboards, allowing them to last longer and look newer.
Detailing your vehicle is also an important part of routine maintenance in order to keep everything clean and in working order.
Where can I get auto detailing done?
The name says it all: auto detailing! We can come to your home or office to finish your detailing job as long as the workspace is not obstructed by things like crowded parking or low hanging tree limbs.
How long does it take to detail an auto vehicle?
Your personal detailing experience is determined by a number of factors. First, because of the size of your vehicle, these times will vary if you have a car or SUV.
A full detail usually takes 6 hours, while an interior or exterior only detail takes 4-5 hours. When we have completed your pre-clean checklist, we will be able to provide a more specific time frame.
Is steam preferable to soap and water?
In a nutshell, yes. Not only does steam consume less water, but it also leaves no residue behind. Steam is also an excellent disinfectant and a powerful degreaser that does not require the use of any chemicals.
How frequently should I detail my car?
At the very least, once a year. When considering selling your car, you should always have it detailed so that it not only increases its value but also appeals to buyers. When you list your vehicle for sale, you should have it detailed about a week before listing it.
Consider how frequently you use your vehicle as well as its current maintenance schedule. If you spend a lot of time on the road, you should consider detailing more frequently to keep everything clean and in working order.
In some cases, detailing your vehicle 2-5 times a year is beneficial. Detailing, like oil changes and other fluids, should be part of your maintenance routine.
When is the best time to detail your vehicle?
The best time to have your vehicle detailed is before the winter months begin in earnest. Detailing your vehicle can keep its performance up to par while also keeping it looking its best during the harsh winter conditions.

I have a friend who can clean my car for less money. Why not go with him?
Your friend is unlikely to be a professional with the necessary training to bring out the best in your vehicle’s appearance. Because he is not a professional, he is unlikely to have all of the necessary tools to thoroughly clean the vehicle.
Your friend is also likely to be lacking in proper insurance and licensing, which increases the likelihood of damage occurring.
