All it takes is a few weeks of driving those country roads to lose that showroom shine; a couple of carpools with a sweaty Little League team to lose that new car smell; and an unfortunate mishap with a ketchup packet to soil that pristine newness; but whether your vehicle is new or years old, Bill the Buff Man can reacquaint you with luxury driving!
Only about 10% of car and truck owners have their vehicles detailed on a regular basis, but if you are thinking about having your vehicle detailed for the first time, you will quickly get addicted to driving and riding in an exquisitely clean, safe, “like-new” vehicle all the time.
Furthermore, automotive detailing and automotive paint correction are the most cost-effective ways to protect your long-term automotive investment, and to be guaranteed a higher trade-in value when you get ready to sell!
Common Misconceptions About Detailing
Detailing is just for new cars?
New cars do not roll off the showroom floor completely flawless. Even if it comes straight from the manufacturer, and especially if it comes straight off the lot, your new car has been manhandled by delivery personnel, service techs, salespeople, and numerous potential buyers!
Your new vehicle has been exposed to railroad dust, highway freight contamination, and pollution from sitting in storage lockers and on outdoor lots near waterside docks, railway stations, and other industrial areas.
Sure, the dealership cleans it up for you and gets it shining, but most dealerships do not employ a professional detailer who knows anything about automotive paint or how to properly buff out a shine. The result is often little more than a quickie car wash with swirl marks, holograms, and even light scratches.
Bill the Buff Man will prep your new vehicle so it is free from scratches, swirls, streaks, water spots, oxidation, or holograms; and provide you with a detailed list of recommended Sonax Car Care products to use, and talk to you about adding a long-lasting protective coating that will help maintain that sparkling finish you just purchased!
My car is old and the paint is all cloudy. It needs to be repainted?
Bill the Buff Man and Shae Morrissey specialize in cleaning and safely removing oxidation, fine scratches, and paint flaws caused by the sun, bird droppings, bug splatter, and the effects of environmental fallout on aging single stage paint.
Dull paint cannot be washed off or even buffed to a shine without highly advanced detailing techniques like clay bar to clean the paint, followed by a trained multistage paint correction using abrasives and a buffer.
Honestly, most of BTBM clients cannot believe the results of their aging vehicles after Bill and Shae work their magic! So many car and truck owners were certain a respray was their only alternative.
My car stinks and the seats and carpets are stained. Cleaning won't help?
Just like on the outside, BTBM uses some of the most advanced products and innovative techniques available to thoroughly clean and restore aging interiors including removing stains from fabrics and carpeting and removing bacteria that causes bad odors.
Detailing is just an expensive car wash?
Absolutely not! At the average car wash, you get little more than a superficial rinsing. Some car washes use abrasive textiles that leave fine scratches, which build up over time and dull your new paint. For an extra $10, you might get a worker to quick-vac your carpet, dust off your dashboard, wipe down your steering wheel, and spray some air freshener, but all they are really doing is displacing surface dirt and covering up any odors while leaving behind the bacteria that causes them.
BTBM thoroughly cleans and reconditions your automobile inside and out. The goal is to revive, restore, maintain, and protect both the interior and exterior of your vehicle to as close as possible, showroom condition!
Washing is only the first of many steps in the detailing process, and we may even recommend additional steps such as paint correction, steam cleaning, or the added protection of automotive coatings.
BTBM will always explain these services thoroughly, and advise you honestly. Remember!
Regularly detailing your vehicle helps maintain the maximum value of your vehicle!
