    Jake and his professional team restored our seven year old Murano and now everyone thinks it's a new car. He worked such wonders even my little grandkids complimented us on our clean car, wow they noticed! We were so impressed we scheduled Jake to take care of the car on extended maintenance. We love it when Jake comes over to work his magic. He even recommends repairs to keep our car young.

    I had my Black 06 Cayman S detailed by Jake. I can't believe what an incredible job he did. I spoke with Jake on the phone and he walked me through the different packages he offers. He came to my house and evaluated my paint and recommended a package and it wasn't the most expensive one he had, he didn't try sell me something I didn't need. I didn't think my paint was bad at all until he worked his magic! Wow what a difference, when he tells you he can give depth to your paint and give it that wet look he is not lying!!! The inside of the car looked just as good, spotless!! Really, really impressed so much so that I'm on his maintenance plan. Can't wait to see what he can do with my 06 Range Rover Sport which was just detailed by another company and it doesn't look half as good as my other car. Jake is a true professional and I highly recommend him for your detailing needs. The products you can purchase from Jake to keep your paint looking great are truly impressive as well. After a few weeks and the car being rained on I thought, "well that's the end of that detailed look". To my delight, I used the product that he advertises on the front page of his website and the car looked like it had just been detailed again, it was awesome!!!! If you're looking to restore your paint or to just maintain what you have do not go anywhere else you're just throwing money down the drain!!!

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. If you are looking for a detailer you should always consider their qualifications. If a detailer has been in business for a long time they may have just been doing it wrong for a long time ask who trained them and ask for a certificate. Would you hire a doctor who didn't graduate medical school. Well detailing courses aren't as intrusive as medical school but when it comes to taking care of expensive cars their importance cannot be understated.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Sealant versus Wax. Some older car guys say that sealant is bad for paint, but things have changed drastically in the last 10 years with regards to detailing technology. Wax does protect your car, but some of the best car waxes in the world only last for a couple of weeks. On the other hand sealants can last for over six months and sometimes longer offering the same kind of protection and shine.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. This question in the detailing industry is three parts. Are you Professionally trained and certified? If so let me see the certificate.
Second, do you use acids for wheel cleaning and waterspot removal?
Acids are an outstanding shortcut for detailers saving time and money, but they can ruin your paint and the finish on your wheels. No matter how good they say they are at using these chemicals they still are slowly ruining your paint and wheels along with other things.
Thirdly, Ask for references and before and after photos. There are many people out there calling themselves detailers that have no business around your car, check them out first.
