How Much Does Car Detailing Cost and is it Worth It?

Keeping our cars clean inside and out helps avoid certain repairs, increases resale value and makes them more fun to drive. But is car detailing worth it? With prices ranging from around $30 to $150 and sometimes more depending on the size of your vehicle, it is not the cheapest car care option. Being pricey doesn’t automatically make it overpriced though for what you get. So, why should or shouldn’t you get it? Here we discuss some factors to help you decide if car detailing is for you.

How is Auto Detailing Different from Just Washing?

Detailing is, simply, more of everything and then some compared to a wash. There are different levels of detailing that range from just a few extra steps than your regular wash all the way up to “showroom” type packages designed to get your car looking just about new – inside and out.

Therefore, yes, you will notice a difference in appearance over even the best wash and wax. Cost and Frequency

The costs associated with detailing can vary widely depending on which services you want performed. Everything from around $30-$50 all the way up to a few hundred for larger vehicles that need a thorough cleaning inside and out.

On average, getting your car detailed once a year is usually enough to enjoy the benefits of the service. However, the cheaper detailing packages are often closer to a typical wash and though they are quality services, their effects will wear off faster making it necessary to get them done every 2-3 months.

What are the Advantages of Auto Detailing?

More Comfortable Interior: Even those of us with the best intentions about our cars still manage to track in dirt, spill sticky drinks and accidentally leave some fast food wrappers behind in the back seat. All of these things can contribute to unpleasant smells, sticky spots, worn interior materials and an overall dingy look. Auto detailing for your interior thoroughly cleans these areas to give your car a fresher look, smell and feel.

Increased Resale Value: Both the interior and exterior condition of your car will contribute to the value your car retains. Car detailing can help keep your exterior paint in good condition and preserve both leather and cloth interiors for better comfort now and better value later.

Convenience: Though car detailing takes more time and costs more than a car wash, the results are far superior and there is a good chance there is a mobile car detailer in your area. These mobile units come to your home or business with everything they need to get the job done.
