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 5 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.
