Attention to Detail: The Benefits of Auto Detailing
Auto detailing can often be overlooked by car owners, but when it is done right and by an expert it can take years off the look of your vehicle. Professional detailing does not only benefit old, run down cars, it is also a great way to maintain and preserve the look of a new vehicle.
We can’t expect to keep the same car forever, selling or trade-ins are inevitable over time. An unkempt interior and exterior reflects a lack of regular vehicle maintenance and this can ultimately diminish the resale value of the vehicle. Most people will associate a lack of maintenance with a neglected engine and be hesitant to purchase, so do yourself a favour and clean your car.
Make that first impression count!
Let’s be honest, driving a nice, shiny car is much more rewarding than driving a dull, dirty one. A clean vehicle reflects your personality. It shows that you care about your car and promotes a positive overall image. This is particularly important if you use your vehicle for business, the cleanliness of your vehicle will leave a lasting impression on the people who see it!

Q) Does auto detailing really increase the value of my car?
It is reported that the average Canadian keeps their car for 5+ years before selling or trading it in for a new one. As people keep their vehicles longer they are exposed to more wear and tear such as; small scratches and dings, seasonal factors causing rust such as road salt and ice, and UV damage from the sun. These same seasonal factors will also affect your vehicle’s interior, salt and mud covered carpets caused by messy winter boots, and in the summer we all know how easy it is for the beach to end up on our car seats.
