Car detailing in Canberra?

By Emily Morris 17 November 2017 29

Your car is a big investment, so keeping it in tip-top condition is something worth doing. And when it comes to keeping it clean and pristine, it’s all in the details.

In this article, we’ve made a handy list of the top 3 Canberra car detailers based on feedback from satisfied customers.

Things to look for in a good car detailer

Each car detailer received great feedback from our commenters, but before we hear from them, let’s talk about what a good car detailer should offer.

  • Experience. If a detailer’s been around a while, chances are they know their stuff. Make sure to pick one who’s up to date on the ins and outs of the business.
  • Punctuality. No one likes unexpected delays, especially when waiting to get something important back. A good car detailer won’t keep you stranded that extra half day, your sparkling clean car will be back when to you when they said it would.
  • Attention to Detail. Detail is in the name: a good detailer won’t just give your vehicle a once-over, they’ll carefully revitalise every nook, cranny, surface, and section inside and out!
  • Passion. You need someone who takes pride in their work: a real car lover who wants to see their face reflected in your polished hubs, a perfectionist who’ll see to every spec on the windscreen.
  • Friendly Service. You want to see a smiling face when you hand over the keys, Canberra’s best car detailers always keep customer service in mind and strive to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.
  • Fair Price. While an impeccable car detailing job costs more than a trip to the drive-through, it also shouldn’t break the bank – a good detailer sets reasonable prices that work with your budget.

just had my car done a few weeks ago by Mach1 detailing Specialists. i was amazed with the job that they did they made the car like it just came out to the showroom.

they were very easy to deal with and quick to book. they called me up on the day to reschedule due to there being poor weather planned for the day witch i thought was fantastic ( nothing worst than just getting your car cleaned and then it rains).

the day that they come the car i was expecting them to arrive in some old van thing or a station wagon but to my surprise they arrived in a ford GT witch got me thinking that these guys take pride in what they do.

they did a walk around the car with me to point out any damage or any concerns that i had and then they started with the cleaning. it took about 3 hours for them to complete the car. and as i said before it looked like it had just came off the showroom floor.

i will be using these guy for all of my car cleaning needs and would recommend them to everyone

give them a buzz and visit there website http://www.mach1detailing.com.au

Has anyone had a water damaged (just carpets) experience? Mrs Chops car stinks after the last onslaught of rain and really needs a propper steam clean – or carpet replacement. Just wondering costs and will it ever be new again?

What’s claybar, pls?.

It’s a piece of putty like stuff that you rub gently over you paintwork with a cleaning solution to remove dirt that has become embedded into the paint. Your car needs to be already really clean before you use it, otherwise it will scratch the paint. I used to use it on my show cars but the two days it takes to properly detail a car to this standard is probably overkill for the daily drive.

🙂 Thanks. Sounds pretty good.

I had Time Tunnel in Fyshwick do a car for me some years ago. Pretty disappointing for the price.

Send out the word and try and get Damian to come up here for a few days!

According to DA (FI’s forum), there are already works afoot to make this happen! Sounds like it could possibly be a regular thing, too.

Good times, indeed… I’m sure you’ll hear about it if it eventuates

A poll is up on DA (final inspection’s forum) to see how many people would be interested in a Canberra-based clinic, or to have Damien do some detailing work up here. Looks as though it could be a goer for March if enough people express an interest…

Just be aware that Waves list on their “menu” that they use Armorall. Every detailing site/forum I’ve come across since starting to read about detailing claims that that Armorall is a bad idea – something to do with the silicons mixed in the cleaner in it make the material you are applying it to dependent on it. If you dont apply it regularly thereafter and let it dries out then you can start getting cracks in your dashboard.
