Should I Use A Detailer Directory - Find Detailers?

Not 100%, these are normally paid services and will be given a higher ranking depending on the more they paid over the quality of the work. Directorys are normally running as a pay to advertise service, so shouldn't be used for a booking based on the listing information.

How Should I Find A Detailer?

Ask around, normally you will be looking for a detailer because of hearing the buzz word "detailer" from a friend or family member. Look for the years of service, go and see or arange a appointment to meet the detailer and see the quality of work before proceeding.

Dont Book On The Quality Of Photos?

Can I Get My Car Paint Corrected In A Day?

Simple Answer: NO, a full paint correction would normally take 3 to 7 days, anyone offering paint correction in a day will at best be only offering a single stage enhancment, full correction can be around 3 to 4 stages taking days. On a side note professional paint correction will start around £350

Still Unsure Who to Choose?

Look for a IDA Detailer - International Detailing Association - Find an IDA member near you! IDA members agree to operate under a Code of Ethics.

Can I Really Choose a Bad Detailer?

YES! The detailing industry is currently unregulated, which means there are no standards, licenses, or laws that govern the industry. While low startup costs and lack of regulations create a great opportunity for young entrepreneurs to start a business, it also allows just about anybody to purchase some products and label themselves as a "detailer."
