What if my car isn’t that dirty?

If your vehicle simply needs to be spruced up, we recommend you take a look at our express detail service.

What determines condition?

If your upholstery is heavily soiled, you can’t recall the last time you’ve cleaned out your interior, use your van for frequent long road trips, haul fertilizer, transport your lovable pet with you everywhere you go, or your car is a glorified soccer kid hauler, then the service will likely fall under our higher price range. For excessive odors, please ask about an ozone service.

Customer preparation prior to mobile service

  • If possible, please remove any large loose items in the interior as this will determine the final service cost upon the initial in-person inspection.

Frequently Asked Questions

 Not all stains are the same. Some are easier to get rid of than others– one key factor is the type of stain itself – for example, organic stains like food or drink spills may be easier to remove compared to oil-based stains like grease or tar. Additionally, the age of the stain plays a significant role, as older stains tend to set in and become more stubborn over time. The location of the stain is also crucial, as stains on fabric upholstery may be more challenging to remove than those on hard surfaces like plastic or glass. Lastly, the cleaning products and techniques used can greatly impact the success of stain removal, with some stains requiring specialized treatments for complete eradication. Autodetail DMV has a wealth of experience and expertise. We have the right tools, the right products, and the right techniques to deal with various situations. However, even with the right tools and expertise, we may only be able to reduce some stains rather than remove them completely.

 The amount of time it takes to clean your car can vary depending on the conditions of your vehicle. We can give you an estimate of 2-5 hours. In rough interior conditions, our service takes around 4 hours. The size and condition of the vehicle play a significant role. Larger vehicles or those with extensive dirt, stains, or pet hair may require more time and effort to clean thoroughly.The type of detailing service chosen also affects the time frame. Basic exterior wash and interior cleaning may take less time compared to a comprehensive package that includes paint correction or ozone treatment.

 We expect the seats to be dry before we complete the service. The passenger and driver’s sides are usually the first to be serviced so that they are dry by the time the service is complete. We understand that you have a lot of work to do, so we do our best to make it as simple as possible for you. However, the drying time of the seats, carpet, and mats after our car detailing service can vary depending on several factors. Factors such as humidity levels, temperature, sunlight, ventilation, and the type of cleaning products used can all influence how long it will take for your vehicle’s interior to dry completely. We recommend allowing about 2 hours for the drying process to ensure the best results.

Interior detailing is the process of cleaning and protecting every inch of a vehicle’s interior. From vacuuming carpets and shampooing them to conditioning leather seats, it’s a labor-intensive and time-consuming process. Professionals use specialized equipment and top-of-the-line cleaning materials to do just that. This level of detail requires a lot of time, experience, and attention to detail, especially when it comes to dealing with tough stains or sensitive surfaces. Products used in detailing are usually premium-grade to guarantee the best results and long-lasting results, which adds to the cost. The cost of interior detailing reflects the depth and quality of the service. It’s not just about cleaning, but about preserving the interior of your vehicle.

There are many reasons why interior detailing is worth it. The first is that it helps to extend the life of your vehicle’s interior surfaces. It helps to keep upholstery from cracking, leather from fading, and plastics from discoloration. The second reason is that it improves the driving experience. Clean and fresh interiors improve comfort and create a more enjoyable driving environment. Lastly, if you’re looking to sell your car, detailing your interior can increase the resale value of your car as it often indicates that it’s been well cared for. All in all, it’s worth investing in interior detailing if you want your car to last longer and your driving experience to improve.

Most professionals agree that a full detailing should be done at least two to three times per year, or four to six times per year. The frequency of your detailing regimen depends on the level of wear and tear you experience on your vehicle.

If there are lingering smells in your vehicle, you may want to consider an ozone treatment. An ozone treatment involves using ozone gas to eliminate odors, bacteria, and other contaminants in a vehicle’s interior. This process helps to freshen up the air quality inside the car and remove any lingering smells that traditional cleaning methods may not be able to fully address.

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 🙂
