Very happy with the work I have had done there, plus the owner is a pretty cool guy.

Interior cleaning discounts attract rif-raf. He's smart for doing that. The place I worked for you wouldn't believe the crap we got in the fall during our "cheap full detail special". Cars that take 6 hours to clean = no money to be made

Most people could give a crap about their cars. THe only time they want it "detailed" is when their interiors are so nasty and stinky that they can't stand it anymore. And they are too lazy to do it themselves. Then people will bitch because the nasty stain they left there for 5 years won't come out.

I always loved the "I spilled a gallon of milk a month ago and now it smells" Had you brought it to me then I could have shampooed it quick and prevented me having to soak with enzyme cleaner and do an ozone treatment on top of doing the carpets....

not a bad deal... sucks that groupon rapes on charges to make money. I looked into it and unless you do it religiously for your business it seems like you lose on money.

Don't buy it, just call me and Ill give you the same price.

We do alot of upselling, book several call-ins out of groupon, and only about 80% that purchase them actually redeem them, so in the end its not bad for us.

true, thats where it works out nicely. when you sell a bunch and maybe half of them remember they even have it or that it expires.

Kev- how much to clay bar, black gold (only) and wax my truck? With interior detail? Im apprehensive to buff it as there's no swirl marks in it yet, but definitely some fine scratches throughout from using towels to dry it. If you have a product/ process that won't create swirls in sunlight, I'm all ears tho

That's my thought... I used to do used car details so it was more about making them presentable than perfection lol, I just don't have the time anymore to do the giant truck the right way... black nonetheless lol.

With the Oct discount we can do $150. I do have a fine polish that we can use with the softest foam pad that should do the trick for you.
