My question is are they doing what I should expect for a quality detailing? (I'm not sure I like the power wash since I have some rust spots starting and I'd hate to see the paint get picked off - but I figure I can just let them have my garden hose - it's a mobile service) I know we have some experts here so I figured I'd pick your brain... Thanks!

Exterior Detail Includes:

A smooth wash of the exterior with a 3500PSI power washer removing all lose substances. Soap and brush wash entire automobile. The exterior is hand clayed for extra smooth results on the paint. A heavy duty buffer and a high speed polisher are used for waxing and polishing removing minor scratches and rough spots leaving a new shiny smooth surface. Clean tires and whitewall's with special tire dressing and dust brake remover, clean wheel-wells. Wheels are degreased and shined. Oxidation & minor scratches are removed with Cleaner Wax. All chrome, plastic and rubber is cleaned. The finish is then polished and hand waxed with "Wet Wax" and "Re-new-It" sealant. Exterior windows are cleaned with a Universal protectant streak free. Door jams and trunk jam are cleaned and degreased. Under carriage and wheel wells are cleaned and degreased. All paint is sprayed with Dry Wash solution giving a shiny new look.

Interior Detail Includes:

The interior leather and/or fabric upholstery seats are vacuumed and scrubbed with a brush as well as a lotion and/or spray applicator and/or dressed with leather lotion and/or special spray. The backs of the front seats are cleaned. All buttons, nob's and controls are cleaned. All carpeting is vacuumed, shampooed and scrubbed removing foreign substances and odor. Floor mats are pressure washed. Ceiling is vacuumed and scrubbed with special spray applicator. Center console and dashboard area is all precisely cleaned and refinished. Trunk area is vacuumed and shampooed as desired. All windows and mirrors are cleaned streak free. Doors and door jams are cleaned and degreased. Underneath seats are vacuumed and cleaned. Interior scent is sprayed as a long lasting odor resistant throughout the automobile.

Seems a little steep but I am sure the C.O.L. is much steeper than where alot of us are from too so that is relative.

Congrats on the recent graduation and upcoming wedding!!!

Congrats Scott! Enjoy the moment and if it allows you to be free for a few more hours it is worth it with everything you have going on.

Which beach are you going to?

Trust me, with what the wedding and honeymoon are costing me... this is CHEAP It's basically a treat for myself (that, and the thong I bought Kelly for the honeymoon on the European beaches )

Believe it or not... the $210 is actually one of the better prices I found. The local car wash wants closer to $300 for the same service. Some other places charge around $150 but they don't do the polish and wax, just the wax. If I wanted just the wax I might as well do it myself at that point. Welcome to Boston. Of course, Boston has to be one of the most expensive places to live in the country.

As for where we are headed on the honeymoon we are starting in Greece and working our way along the northern Med to Spain. Lots of nice beaches to hit in 5 weeks! I can't wait.

yea i know where you're coming from....there are times when i feel like paying someone to clean my truck up....only problem is im too tight with my money that being said hell its your graduation and bachelor party...so throw that money down and have a good lookin ride all week long....i would take better care of my truck if it was newer, its a 95 which is new, but not brand-new...so it gets the older truck treat with less care mentallity...plus its hard to wash it knowing that 5 days out of the week its parked at a muddy jobsite and i hop in it muddy and covered in saw dust....makes it hard to want to clean it up when its like that....any way congratulations on graduation

My friends know better than to mess with my truck.

They all drive much newer and nicer cars and have seen my revenge. It never comes immediately, but it always comes.
