Auto Detailing: Choosing a Service You Will Love

There's nothing preventing you from washing and cleaning your own car, unless you have a disability of some kind. People pay for a professional auto detailing service for one of two reasons (or a combination of both): they don't feel like doing it themselves, or they want the job done to a level they aren't able or willing to meet themselves. But even if the first reason is more to the point than the second, no one wants to drive away wondering what exactly they paid for and why. Here are some tips that will help you choose a company that won't disappoint you with their service.
Find Multiple Packages
The best auto detailing companies will give you a choice when it comes to the service you want. The more expensive services will net you more work, while the basic package should get your car clean. It should be up to you to look at a list that details these packages so that you can pay only for what you want and nothing more. Having such a list will also ensure that you know what you're getting. You won't have to drive away with that wondering feeling that so many lesser companies tend to leave you with.
Hand Work
You should never pay for auto detailing that is just going to be run through a car wash machine. You can get that for $5 at most larger gas stations and it will take much less time. Make sure the people doing your car are actually going to get their hands dirty. They haven't yet invented a machine that can wash a car the way a human with the right tools can. Besides, the only machines that can come close are actually rougher on your car than you probably want. Not to mention the fact that they have no way of knowing if they missed a spot. Insist on hand work.
Don't just take an auto detailing company's word for it when they tell you they are the best in town. We live in an age where reviews, ratings, and complaints are but a Google search away. Don't let this opportunity get away from you. Browse online and see what people recommend. Throw a shout-out to your Facebook friends. This is one of the best advantages of having a friend list filled with people you barely know. Even strangers will rush to recommend or slam a company they had dealings with. Use this information to make a good choice.
