  • Please help me find a good professional car detailer (Brisbane South)

    I am new to this forum. Please forgive me if I am not familiar with the rules and regulation here.

    In about four months I would have

    1) a new large 4WD for paint protection & interior protection & windows tinting.
    2) a nearly 5 yo Toyota Kluger for paint correction and paint protection
    3) an over 10 yo Holden Berlina station wagon for complete detailing prior to private sale.

    After that I am looking for a yearly detailing. So this is not just a one off service.

    All the cars have been/will be parked under the sun 5 - 6 days a week.

    After some research, so far I found 4 on the net but have no experience with any of them.

    In no particular order

    1) Detail Evolution - Mobile Auto Detailing

    4) Preferred Mobile Car Care Brisbane Division

    Some observation from their web sites :
    Detail Evolution is probably closest to me and he does Windows Tinting.
    Fab's Car Polishing & Mobile Car Detailing sprays Opti Coat with spray gun and applies two layers of it. I guess that is good and you might get a thicker coat but you have to pay $99 for the Opti Coat warranty. What? Why is that an option? I thought it should be included regardless.

    The first two detailers use Opti Coat/Opti Guard

    The last two detailers use Ceramic PRO 9H

    Queries:
    1) How do I choose between Opti Coat/Opti Guard and Ceramic PRO 9H?? Which would be more suitable for my case in the long run?

    2) How important is the interior protection for leather, vinyl and fabric?
    or is it a waste of money and you might as well have a thourough detailing job done when come to sell it eg http://www.detailparadise.com.au/sho...obs-Gold-Coast

    3) How important is window tinting when come to protect the interior of the car from the harmful effect of UV ?

    4) Do you have any experience with any of the above 4 detailers?

    5) Are there any others that I should also consider (or you might have experience with or know of a good professional detailer that you can recommend).

    Please feel free to post or message me.

    Thanks.

    Tint will block out UVA and UVB rays and cut down the heat.

    Interior protection isn't as vital as exterior protection but still worth doing.

    A front sun visor is worth getting as well for summer

      What is front sun visor? Those things that you unfold and put above the dashboard and behind the windscreen (after you have parked the car)?

          Choosing a detailer for your vehicles is the same as choosing any trades person to do work for you.
          Check them out online, as you obviously have. Several of them are members of this forum which generally shows they have experience, willingness to help others, a desire to learn more and an interest in detailing beyond it just being a job.
          If you like what you've seen of them online then give them a call to discuss your requirements. Things like drop off and pick up of vehicles or if it can be done on site. The days and times the vehicles are available for working on. Even though your 4WD is new it may still need some paint correction before protection.
          Then if you like what you hear over the phone organise to get a quote. You may be happy with a good estimate over the phone without the vehicles being seen, or you may want the vehicles inspected and given a firm quote.
          In the end it's your personal preference based on how happy you are with the price, the examples of previous work and the personality of the detailer.

                All of them are really good and professional. I have been in to Nano Shine too. They do it perfectly. Also I recently tried Ceramic Protection Brisbane for electronic rust proofing and window tinting and I super love their service. Love the results and the staff their.
                Car owners are concerned about preventing rust, but not everyone agrees in the power of electronic rust proofing. We offer 10 Year corrosion Warranty!

                  This is the first live and proper detailing post I've seen on here in weeks !
                  I'd suggest a minimum of a visit to their premises to get a feel for the substance and how well organised the place is.

                      I just had my car detailed in Timeless Car Cleaning in Nothgate Queensland. You can get a quote or an estimate on how much it would cost you for the detailing service that you need. Check out their site.
