Before you make any calls, you should decide whether you want a car wash or a detail. A car wash will remove surface dirt. A professional detail focuses on the details. They are completely different services with very different price structures. Some professional detail services need to be performed inside to be done correctly. Although a mobile detailer can perform many of these services, they may need access to a garage to do it.
The first thing most potential clients ask a detailer is usually “how much do you charge.” Of course you want to know how much you’ll be paying, but in order to give you a price a professional detailer is going to need more information and the best way to do that is to inspect the vehicle.
Before choosing your car detailer you may want to ask them some of the following questions: How long will it take? Do they need access to your utilities? What forms of payment do they accept? What products and equipment will they be using? Lastly, are they willing to listen to your concerns and explain how they intend to address them? Building a trusting relationship will help you feel more comfortable with your detailer.
