Shire Car Detailing will come to you.

As Mobile Car Detailers, we cover all of the St George & Sutherland Shire and most parts of Sydney.


Why you would want a post-purchase detail…

So you finally found that used car you’ve been dreaming about. The body looks good, no respray & no rust. You’ve seen the service history and had it inspected by a mechanic anyway – just to be sure. What about the things you can’t see? There are lots of tricks that people can employ to hide defects on a car when selling it and even with the best of intentions people can and do mislead others. How many times have you read a car advert where the owners says “constantly had food spilled in the interior” or “used to transport 4 dogs on a daily basis” or “smoked in for the past 10 years”…
exterior detail

With a post-purchase detail, the first thing we do is strip away any of the masking agents that were applied before posting the car for sale. This could include Vaseline on the body or a glaze that hides swirls. The next step is to get it looking as good as it possibly could. Finally, we protect the paintwork and restore any faded trims.
