We at Onsite Dealer Solutions (ODS) wanted to provide some answers to popular car detailing questions that we receive on a regular basis. Peek at the questions below to see how best to address your cars appearance and the car detailing profession in general.
What is car detailing, and what does it involve? A: Car detailing is a thorough cleaning and restoration process that involves cleaning, polishing, and protecting every part of a car's exterior and interior. This includes washing and waxing the exterior, cleaning, and conditioning the interior surfaces, and restoring and protecting components like the wheels, tires, and headlights.
How often should I get my car detailed? A: The frequency of car detailing depends on various factors, including how frequently the car is used, where it is driven, and how it is stored. Generally, it is recommended to have a full detailing service performed every six months to a year. However, you may need to have your car detailed more frequently if it is exposed to harsh environmental conditions or heavy usage.
How much does car detailing cost? A: The cost of car detailing varies depending on the type of service, the location, and the condition of the car. A basic detailing service typically costs between $50 and $150, while a more comprehensive service can cost anywhere from $200 to $500 or more.
Can car detailing remove scratches and dents? A: Car detailing can improve the appearance of minor scratches and scuffs by using polishing and buffing techniques, but it cannot fix deep scratches or dents. These issues may require more extensive repairs, such as paint touch-ups, dent removal, and wet sanding. A good way to protect your car from future dents and scratches would be to utilize ceramic coating or paint protection film.
What is the difference between car detailing and car washing? A:Car washing typically involves a simple wash and rinse of the exterior of the car, while car detailing is a more comprehensive cleaning and restoration process that involves cleaning, polishing, and protecting every part of the car's exterior and interior.
What are some of the best car detailing products on the market? A: There are numerous car detailing products available on the market, including high-quality car wash soaps, detailing sprays, polishes, waxes, and protective coatings. At Onsite Dealer Solutions, we provide the very best solutions and solvents to get cars looking brand new again.
Can I do car detailing myself, or should I hire a professional? A: While it is possible to do some aspects of car detailing yourself, such as washing and waxing the exterior, it can be challenging to achieve professional-level results without the right expertise. Hiring a professional car detailing company can ensure that your car is properly cleaned and restored to its original condition.
How long does car detailing take? A: Car detailing service duration depends on the type of service provided, the team doing the work and the condition of the car. A basic detailing service can take a few hours, while a more comprehensive service can take several hours or even a full day to complete. ODS can complete detailing jobs in a few hours versus days, ultimately decreasing the time inventory and customers sit waiting for the work to be completed.
What is included in a full car detailing service? A: A full car detailing service typically includes washing and waxing the exterior, cleaning, and conditioning the interior surfaces, and restoring and protecting components like the wheels, tires, and headlights. It may also include engine detailing, leather restoration, and paint correction.
