Highly rated fully mobile exterior detail

Make Your Car Shine Again

Has it been a while since you last waxed your vehicle? A few months or years?Maybe you just bought a new vehicle and want to make sure it starts on the right foot. If so the Full Wash & Wax package is what we recommend!

Not only will you see a big difference in the appearance, but  your vehicle will be protected and vibrant while on the road. Each package is optioned with you choice of protection (the standard 2-month wax or 10-month sealant). 

If you enjoy glancing back at your car, you’ll love this service as it doesn’t take much time to get done but provides a drastic exterior refresh.

I've always detailed my own cars myself and used to do this as a side hustle in the past. That being said; if I was going to have someone else detail my car, I was going to make sure their work and reviews looked high quality. I decided to have a full interior and exterior detail on my car in addition to sealant and a polish job. I think the photos speak for themselves but I was very satisfied and impressed with all aspects of the service from Erick. Punctuality, communication, quality of services, and costs for offerings. I would 100% recommend him to anyone; whether you are looking for touch up wash, or a full on detail and paint correction; you will NOT be disappointed!

The service was fantastic. I had my car detailed in anticipation of proposing to my (now) fiancée. He arrived right on time at my work and had everything finished just in time for me to leave at the end of the day. Amazing quality, and he went above and beyond! Totally worth it, and would do it again.

Erick and his team did a fantastic job on the interior of my husband’s large SUV! It needed some serious TLC and they were able to have it looking as close to brand new as possible. Booking was quick and easy and they were very responsive. 10/10 highly recommended. Thank you so much Erick and team!

My car needed some TLC after several years of neglect and a recent collision repair. Erick applied his deep knowledge of paint and interior materials to help me choose the highest value services, and then executed them with great care.

Auto Detail DMV rocked the full detailing and paint repair for my 17-year-old car. Highly recommend—solid communication and deeply knowledgeable of the craft. Whatever you need to read here to convince you to give them a shot, pretend you’re reading it now.

Great job on our 2 cars! They sparkled when he was done. I found Erick’s service online, not a referral, so I was a bit hesitant. Glad we took a chance on this enterprising young man! Erick gave me prices upfront with the caveat that he may need to adjust when he saw the cars. One didn’t need interior detailing and the other just needed minor interior cleaning, to include removing some light blue jean bluing from the drivers seat. He adjusts his prices based on the work needed; not a “one price fits all” like car washes. He did not try to up-sell us services. We will definitely use him for our cars again and again.

I am very happy I hired Erick for washing and detailing my wife's car. The car came out looking great and it was conveniently done at our home. It was not hard to get a convenient appointment. But most importantly Erick is a very friendly and hardworking guy who cares about a job well done. He is very easy to work with. I highly recommend!

I had not used a mobile detailing service before and had read about other people's bad experiences with some firms. However my dealings with Erick were straightforward and very professional. HIs services were clearly listed on the website as well as in the proposal, and it was easy to make an appointment and communicate via text and email. Erick arrived at exactly the promised time and met a schedule constraint that I had. The car (large SUV) looked great and Erick also pointed out some minor scratches that he could repair in the future if I acquired a paint kit from Toyota. All in all a very satisfying first experience and I will consider his services again on my other vehicles.

Erick was extremely professional and prompt in the initial communication and was very happy to answer all my questions and doubts. On the day of the appointment he was extremely punctual and he a did a fantastic job of detailing the interiors of my car. Before the service there was lots and lots of pet hair in the car and whilst I expected them to be taken care of, what I finally got was more than I had expected. I would strongly recommend Erick for car detailing. He is also very flexible and reasonably priced.

Erick was extremely professional and prompt in the initial communication and was very happy to answer all my questions and doubts. Erick did a great job detailing my vehicle! It had been a while since I'd gotten my car cleaned and it was not in the best condition. Erick told me it's take about 2 - 3hrs to finish the job and he was right on target. My car looks brand new and smells great. He took out strains I thought would never come out of my car and has a good eye for detail on what needed to be done. Would definitely recommend and would definitely hire again for another detailing.

Erick was extremely professional and prompt in the initial communication and was very happy to answer all my questions and doubts. Erick did a fantastic job! My husband’s truck was difficult to drive because it was such a mess 🙂 The typical mess from a large dog, hiking, fishing, road trips, etc. We traded vehicles for a bit and I immediately scheduled a detail. 90% of the dog hair is gone. There’s no evidence of dirt or grime. Every inch of the interior is clean! I can drive to work without fear of being covered in dog hair now! Erick was friendly, on time, efficient and professional! I will certainly use Erick again in the future.

Erick was extremely professional and prompt in the initial communication and was very happy to answer all my questions and doubts. With being a Mom of two, and one on the way. I needed my vehicle detailed very badly. We are always on our way to some sort of sports so we literally live in our vehicle some weeks. It was a wreck. Erick came and saved the day. He did AMAZING! My carpets were shampooed as well as the seats. He was able to clean the center console and it looked BRAND NEW. He even detailed the third row seating! Overall, my husband and I were so impressed we're gonna get the rest of our vehicles done by him as well. Very thankful for Erick's help with this nesting Mama 🙂

Full Wash & Wax (Exterior Detail) FAQs

Does Autodetail DMV service all of the greater DC metropolitan area? 

Yes, Autodetail DMV will come to any location in the DC greater metropolitan area. Some of our service locations include Arlington VA, Bethesda VA, Centreville VA, Great Falls VA, Herndon VA, Mclean VA, and Tyson’s Corner VA.

Do you need access to water? 

While having access to a water spigot will sometimes aid in speeding up the process, we are 100% fully mobile and do not require a water hook-up.

Will this package remove any scratches in the wax process?

Contrary to popular belief, applying wax, even by machine, does not remove any physical defects in the paint. The reason why scratches appear less apparent after being applied is due to the wax filling in the scratch, causing an illusion that it has been reduced. For extensive paint restoration, check out our paint enhancement and paint correction services!

How long will my car stay clean and shiny?

This is going to be dependent on where the vehicle is stored, general day-to-day use, and your maintenance methodology.

If you wish your car to stay looking as new as possible for as long as possible, we suggest ensuring the upkeep of your choice of clear coat protection. Autodetail DMV – Mobile Car Detailing offers a standard ceramic wax that provides 2-4 months of protection, a more durable paint sealant with 10-12 months of protection, or a ceramic coating with 2 full years of durability.

If you properly wash, dry, and wax your vehicle, the results will stay for much longer than compared to if you use a harsh automated tunnel wash.

What does “decontaminating the paint” mean?

Decontaminating the paint is a phrase used for prepping the paint. In most cases, it’s simply claying the surface or using iron removers to remove the road matter embedded in the clear coat. Decontaminating the paint is essential prior to buffing or polishing.

Can wax remove scratches and swirl marks? 

Applying wax can help minimize the visibility of minor scratches and swirl marks on the surface. It is important to note that while wax can improve the appearance of these imperfections, it does not actually eliminate swirl marks. To achieve this, we will need to polish the paint, which you can read more about here. 

What is the benefit of waxing my car?

Waxing creates a barrier that protects the paint from UV rays, pollutants, and external elements. Additionally, it enhances the shine and simplifies the cleaning process.

How long does a wash and wax usually take? 

The duration of an exterior detail typically depends on factors such as the size of the vehicle, its condition, and the specific services requested. On average, the process can range from a couple hours to a few hours.
