Are you thinking about getting your car detailed? Wondering what you need to do to prepare ahead of time? Here are the basics behind what you can expect in your car detail and how you can set yourself up for a great experience.

5 Crucial Things to Know About Your East Valley Car Detailing Service

1. Plan ahead when scheduling your car detail.
Getting your car detailed isn’t like a car wash where you’re in and out in several minutes. You’ll want to allow a few hours for the car detail professionals to make your car look its best. That’s why at Signature Auto Detailing, we come to you. Many of our clients choose to schedule a car detail during the day while they are at work. We’ll even go to your place of business. As long as we have space to work, we’ll go anywhere you want us to within our East Valley and Scottsdale service area.

2. Remove your personal belongings from the interior before the detail.
In a survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Cooper Tires, it was reported that on average Americans spend 18 days a year in their cars. So, we certainly understand the kinds of personal objects that make time in the car a little more bearable. But it will be much easier on the car detailer if you remove those personal items first. After all, you want a clean car and a thorough job. If the detailer must navigate around your items, that’s harder and takes longer.

There are different levels of detailing. If you know what’s important to you and you can communicate that to your technician, they can ensure your needs are met and that you’re satisfied with the work. Additionally, if there’s something about your vehicle that bothers you, address it with the technician. If they know about a defect or blemish, they may be able to fill it in, cover it up, or pop it out. If they can’t fix it through a detail service, the technician may suggest a car paint correction service to help with the scratches or blemishes. At Signature Auto Detailing, we also want to respect what’s important to our clients. What’s important to you is important to us. For those who live a greener lifestyle and are looking for ways to reduce their impact on the environment, but they still want a clean car, we offer a waterless car wash. Additionally, if you have pets who love time with you in the car, talk to the technician about a deep interior detail. You’ll be surprised how much pet hair we can pull out of your vehicle.

4. Make sure there is ample space around your vehicle for the detailer to work.
A detailing technician can come to you for greater convenience. However, you need to ensure there’s ample room for them to work. Being parked in a tight spot at your office next to two other cars is not ideal. After all, you don’t want your office neighbors complaining to you about water spots on their finishes, do you? Instead, find an area at work that offers plenty of room or pull other vehicles out of the way if you’re at home.

5. Say goodbye to the car wash.
If you’ve selected the ultimate form of protection for your car and opted for a paint correction/gloss enhancement or ceramic coating, you don’t want to take your car to a car wash afterward. Car washes will scratch your corrected paint and the coating’s protection will fail. If you stay away from the car wash and follow the suggested maintenance plan, your ceramic coating will keep your car’s paint looking fresh-off-the-showroom floor for up to three years. A pristine look for very little upkeep.
