Frequently Asked Questions

Mobile Detailing FAQ’s

How long does an appointment for car detailing take?

The size of your vehicle and the services requested will dictate the amount of time needed for your appointment.

An interior detailing with shampoo would take, on average, about 2 hours.

An exterior detailing, with wax finish, would also take on average 2 hours.

If you asked for both services, you’d be looking at 4 hours, on average.

What do you need from me to detail my car?

Just the keys, please. We can handle the rest!

What happens if the weather isn’t cooperating?

As we are performing detailing services outside, temperatures must be 5 degrees or warmer, with no rain and no strong winds.

I live in a building with a parkade. Can you detail my car there?

We can only complete interior detailing inside parkades and garages. Due to height restrictions, we cannot fit our vans in parkades, therefore we cannot complete exterior detailing for those customers in a parakde.

Do you detail in the winter and summer?

We can complete interior detailing in the winter if the customer has a heated garage or a heated underground parkade.

(One note about underground parkades (and garages) is that we cannot get our van inside the parkade/garage, therefore we cannot power wash your vehicle. This means, we cannot do a proper exterior detailing. Be sure to provide all your details when booking!)
