Are you a car enthusiast?

Did you Just buy a new car and already notice small scratches from the dealership?

Do you take your vehicle to the local drive through car wash?

Do you have a pet?

Do you have kids?

Do you smoke?

If you answered YES to any of these questions your vehicle most likely needs a Detail.

Most detail services that are provided are simply a wash,wax and vacuum. We do not consider this a detail here at AIS, but we refer to this as our maintenance wash and we recommend that your vehicle receives one of these maintenance washes every few weeks for a proper maintenance regime .  what we consider a true detail is getting your vehicle in the absolute best condition possible, not just covering up any potential problems. This means hours of correcting the paint with the best techniques, tools, and products that are on the market today.  Using these correct techniques we can remove all defects that are achievable while conserving your clear coat.  As for the interior, We go above and beyond to fully reset your interior and eliminate any unwanted lingering contaminates. Once again, We use nothing but the best tools and techniques when it comes to attacking those unwanted lingering smells, stains, and debris that has accumulated over the years.  A True Detail may take up to 20hrs plus to fully reset your vehicle and that is why we have built a shop here in uptown to provide a professional experience like no other. 

Give us a call, email, or stop by the shop during business hours to receive a quote from us. As we do not have a set price for any detail we must first understand the needs of the client and the condition of the vehicle to properly diagnose what detail is best suited for you . We are a APPOINTMENT ONLY shop so please do not show up expecting a detail that day unless scheduled. 

As we tailor each detail to the needs of the clients we do not have a set time per detail. Where our maintenance wash usually  takes about an hour to fully complete. A full detail depending on the size of your vehicle can take anywhere from 6 hours to 20 plus hours. For example, on a bronze detail for a four door vehicle, it takes on average around 3 hrs for the interior detail to be completed. Including the wash it takes around another 3 hrs for the exterior detail to be completed. The time of the detail will vary depending on the color, the size, the type of vehicle, and  paint used on your vehicle. All ceramic coating we recommend that your vehicle stays with us over night to properly cure in a protected environment.
