Answers

How long does the service take for an average car or truck?

The average length of time for a Palms Detail is about 3 hours, depending on the condition of the vehicle. The Pure Paradise Detail can take as long as 3-4 hours. Exotic and vintage vehicles are generally all-day jobs

You even supply your own water?

Yes. In fact, Paradise Mobile Detail uses conditioned water that is processed through a commercial grade softener in order to eliminate water spots and speed up the detail process. Soft water is also much gentler on your paint than regular tap water. This is especially important on luxury vehicles where the factory applies the paint to give it a deep luster. If you have a luxury vehicle, it is especially important to make sure your detailing is done with softened water and a ph balanced soap. If you have a luxury vehicle and would like more information, please call or email us…whether you use our services or not, before letting just anyone perform a detail on your vehicle.

Can you really detail at my office?

Yes. Our units are completely equipped, including water and electricity. In fact, we do most of our details at offices and corporate complexes as long as permission is granted by the management.

Do you have a minimum for a service call?

We require a minimum of $100 per service call. We have many clients that arrange to have service done at the same time as their co-workers or neighbors in order to facilitate this.

Do I need to be there during the service?

We prefer the client to at least be there when we arrive and before we leave. We don’t require anyone to be present while we do the work, though.

I don’t own a luxury vehicle. Why should I have my vehicle detailed?

The main reason is to maintain the value of the vehicle. Your car is exposed to the harshest of elements everyday. While we don’t realize it, the chemicals in the air, dirt from the road, and nature’s other elements (especially the sun, bugs and birds) do a great deal of damage to the paint surface of our car. We tend to be pretty tough on the interiors as well. Dirt gets ground into our seats and carpets every time we sit or twist in our seats or get in and out of our cars. This dirt wears down the fibers of fabric and the surface of leather and over time, we end up with tears in our fabric and carpet or cracks in our leather. Additionally, there’s the peace of mind you get when driving a car that is always in showroom condition. After all, that’s why we like buying new cars, isn’t it—for that “new” feeling? It relieves stress and makes our daily drives and commutes a little more bearable when we don’t have to sit in a dirty car. We maintain our engines, transmissions, tires, etc., but we never stop to think about the value that our car loses by not maintaining it’s appearance. In comparison to the cost of the vehicle, detailing is an inexpensive way to keep it’s value and make our everyday commutes a little more enjoyable!

How often should I have my vehicle detailed?

While you only need to have your car fully detailed every 3-6 months, depending on your driving habits, you should still have it cleaned every 4-6 weeks. If you’re a road warrior and spend a lot of time on the road, you may want to have a basic service done as much as every week. It really depends on your needs. High-line cars should be meticulously cared for at least every week to 2 weeks to maintain it and keep as much of it’s original condition, value and luster as possible. It really depends on your personal usage and the level of concern you have for your vehicle.

Is it true that bird droppings and bugs can ruin my paint?

Absolutely! This should be handled as soon as it happens. The chemicals from these elements are naturally acidic. They can and will eat through the clear coat on your vehicle and can eventually even get through the paint. Detailing can only do so much if it’s not taken care of promptly, and it’s certainly cheaper than having to have an entire area of your vehicle repainted.

Can you detail in any weather?

We cannot detail when the weather is below freezing. We can detail on rainy days as long as it is not raining while we are performing the service.

I own a luxury vehicle. Is there anything special I should know?

The great thing about luxury vehicles is that not only are they nice to own and drive, as long as they are well cared for, they can be great resellers when you are ready to move on to a new vehicle. Aside from mechanical neglect, appearance is the number one thing that will determine a good resale value on a luxury vehicle from a poor one. Paradise Mobile Detail offers no-hassle service agreements designed with the luxury vehicle owner in mind. These programs are designed to offer the maximum benefit to the owner while at the same time alleviating the concern of maintaining your vehicle’s appearance. We take care of it all for you on a set schedule.

I own an exotic vehicle. Are you qualified to detail exotic cars?

Absolutely. In fact, not only are we qualified, we also cover an extra level of insurance in order to work on exotics which is something that you may not find with other services. We strongly recommend making sure someone has a higher than standard level of insurance before allowing them to do work on such a large investment.
