SplashTek Mobile Auto Detailing

Summerville, SC

About this pro

How does your service stand out?

A lot of detailers use old buffer pads to compound vehicles. And they cause more damage than they mean to repair. We always use a clay bar treatment before we buff to ensure a clean surface so that we don't buff even the finest contaminants into your paint. And we use the best DA polisher and paint restoration products available to restore paint to as close to like new condition as possible without painting your vehicle. There's more to it than just that. We have the know how and right equipment as well as products.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I like when I get to feel the smooth paint of a polished vehicle with my hand and daze into the reflections at the end of a long day.

    They never fail me. Chris' crew was able to buff out the damage that I caused myself by trying to correct my own paint. I honestly believed that I was going to have to get my car painted. I take very good care of my vehicle. And nobody can please me besides SplashTek, when it comes to detailing. There's no way I would ever take my vehicle to anybody else. The flawless results that I look for are almost impossible to achieve. But, somehow, they do exactly what they need to every time. It really has a lot to do with their steps and procedures. They don't cut corners. And they know what they're talking about.

    Mold and mildew covered the interior of my truck, after the flood. And SplashTek was able to remove the bacteria and make my vehicle smell brand new. Not only that, looks better now then when I first purchased it.

    Thank you!

    Nobody locally even knows how to detail anywhere near the level of quality that you get with SplashTek. They helped me fix what the car wash did to my paint with their dirty car wash brushes. My car had swirl marks all over it. But!!! Chris & his crew were knowledgeable, kind and willing to bend over backwards to make my beat up SUV look better than when I first bought it.

    Chris advertises on Angie's list and on his website a $99.95 full interior detail for small cars and trucks. However a Toyota Corolla is not considered a small car. When I refused to pay 25% more for my Toyota Corolla he told me it was Angie list that misrepresented the cost. However his web site also claims to do a detail on small cars for $99.95.

    Made my day! Thanks so much! I was certainly a pleasure!

    So far they have been working constantly and have been doing a great job. They got here exactly when they said they would. They've been absolutely great and extremely friendly. Let me know what they were doing and why they were doing it. I got the full package for my mother as part of her birthday present and I know she's gonna love it! Thanks guys!

    Hello, Sir! This is the owner of SplashTek. Thank you so much for the review. It's so nice to know that I have a good team put together, after 5 years of being in business. Finally, I can rest and grow the business thanks to these guys. They're faithful and always do a great job! I'll be sure to let them know. It means a lot to us. Thank you!!!!

    I scheduled my full detail and headlights to be done while I was at work. Chris and his team arrived promptly and got right to work. They spent over 3 hours detailing my wife's Corolla and all I can say is WOW DUDE! The interior had not been cleaned in years, and the exterior hadn't been washed in months. They made the car look absolutely show room ready. It's like having a brand new car! Chris and his team definitely went above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend Splashtek to my friends and family.
    Chris B. Sep 10, 2014

    It's always a pleasure just to see you. And it was more than a pleasure to serve you. Thank you for the business, Sir!

    Chris and Sheridan did a great job on our Jeep and Camry, one is "lived in" and the other just made a cross-country trip. I chose the full exterior and interior detail, and they sparkled inside and out. Chris is right on time, very professional and personable. I could not be more pleased. Their service was a surprise gift for daughters. They LOVED it! I recommend their services without reservation. (And Chris is honest; he found $40 between the seats, rang my doorbell to put the money in my hand. I had no idea there was cash in the Jeep.)
    Chris B. Jun 1, 2014

    The pleasure was all ours. Thanks for everything. We're so glad your daughters were pleased.

    Boat Detailing
    Verified Review
    Outside of the boat looked really good but the inside of the boat had multiple spaces that were left dirty or untouched. Overall I would consider going with this service again but next time it will be done when I am present so I can double check their work prior to completion and payment.
    Chris B. Apr 24, 2014

    The boat was chipping on the inside because the gel coat was gone, since this boat hasn't been well kept and was in horrible shape. We had to actually remove a lot of barnacles from the bottom, which was very difficult and time consuming. And we did a full detail on their Lexus SUV, which is currently for sale, and wasn't mentioned in this review. We, unfortunately, had to be delicate and remove a lot of build up at the same time. And because our standard method wasn't compatible with the worn boat curtain, Etc., our delicate process was obviously not tough enough. And the happy median isn't obvious to the customer. However, we did come back a second time and make sure we did our best. Plus the service technician has 15 years of boat detailing experience. Please scroll down and continue to read our reviews. This isn't your typical situation. I wish there was more we could do.

    They arrived a few minutes early, got right to work, car and truck looked great when they got done, price was as agreed. I think the truck took a little longer than expected, but there was no suggestion of added cost. Very happy with the service and the finished product.
    Chris B. Apr 10, 2014

    Thanks. An old customer from next door to you happened to recognize us that day and scheduled 2. And the neighbor across the street got her Mercedes done. It was fun. Sorry it took so long. I'm was so glad to see the end result.

    Chris is a miracle worker! Milk spilt into the trunk of my mother's car and we couldn't eliminate the smell, no matter how thoroughly we cleaned it. After he spent hours cleaning, her car looks and smells brand new. Thank you Chris, for a fantastic job!

    Meeting you and your family was the most pleasant experience you could ask for from a customer. I was happy to go the extra mile for such a kind people. Happy New Year! Merry Christmas! See you someday I hope. Thanks!!!!

    Chris was on time, professional and performed as expected plus some. The inside of our Highlander suffered from years of car pools and fast food exposure, both inside and outside look like new. Thanks to Chris for a first class job. Will certainly use him again.
    Chris B. Oct 25, 2013

    I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to spruce your Highlander up. Thank you, Sir! Much appreciated!!!

    Chris did an excellent job compounding, polishing and waxing our 2012 BMW X5. Even with the notoriously hard BMW clear coat (that befuddles many pro detailers) Chris was able to get 75-80% correction on the swirls and RIDS. The price was right and Chris is a professional that you would do well to work with.

    Thank you for taking your time to carefully review SplashTek (me). This is a proud 4 stars from you that we gladly receive. I know you were hoping for perfection. However, I do believe that if I attempted to cut any deeper that there was a chance of cutting too deep. I'd rather be safe than sorry. It could've been 0 stars. Thanks for the way you worded it.

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love what I do. Refer to my biography.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We spend a lot of time dusting and prepping interiors before we do anything else. And we spend a lot of time washing exteriors and removing fine impurities before we wax over harmful matter. Most of the jobs we do are easy because most of our customers are regular customers. Some like a lot of wax, some ask us to touch up spots in their carpets and and seats. And we love to lotion leather to make it last longer and make the car, truck van, etc. smell just like new leather. We restore a lot of headlights and use acid on on most types of rims clean deep and make those babies shine like no tomorrow.
