Mobile Car and Marine Detailing

What is Car Detailing?

Car detailing is a thorough cleaning and conditioning process of both the interior and exterior of the car. Car detailing is much more than just a car wash. The detailing process involves paying attention to very specific areas of a car that are subject to dirt, dust and harsh weather conditions. Car detailing involves not only cleaning a vehicle but also highlighting and showcasing the best attributes of your car.

Why Regular Car Detailing is so important

First of all, If you like driving a nice-looking clean car, then you need to keep your pride and joy in pristine condition by having your car regularly detailed by a Gold Coast car detailing professional. If you own a car, you need to make sure that you care for your vehicle and maintain all aspects related to car detailing in order to keep both internal and external surfaces protected from the harsh environmental elements that come along with Gold Coast living. As a result, keeping your car lasting longer and maintaining its value. 

Car Detailing

Full Detail /Car wash

The first step of car detailing is to start with a car wash. We make sure we use only the best car shampoo in order to keep the car paintwork from being damaged. Using a cheap house detergent or cheap car shampoo can affect the polish on your car and in some cases lead to your paintwork being damaged. When washing your car, we use professional high-density sponges and wipes. When complete we use a soft chamois to gather all of the excess water, avoiding large water droplets drying out and leaving stains.


Vacuuming and Cleaning

Once we have washed your car, we move on to the vacuuming and cleaning of the interior. We use power vacuums that suck out the dust and dirt particles buried deep into the carpet and upholstery. If you live in a hot climate like the Gold Coast, where we use recycled air conditioning regularly then the interior of your car needs to be regularly vacuumed. This is because the interior of most cars is a closed confined space and therefore can be a breeding ground for dust mites, and bacteria. We use high powered vacuums, and anti-bacterial cleaners to remove all dirt and grime, then apply protective coatings, and optional fragrances to carpets and upholstery

Shampoo Seats and Carpets

All the car’s upholstery will be shampooed as well as vacuumed to remove the stubborn dirt and stains. Leather interiors will be scrubbed and conditioned so that all traces of dirt is gone. Vinyl and plastic surfaces will be completely cleaned and dress with a specialized product. Finally, all glass windows and surfaces are cleaned and fully polished.

Leather Cleaning/Conditioning

Cleaning and maintaining your car leather upholstery when it is brand new from the beginning is the best way. They’re pricey, so it best to take care of them.Vinyl and leather need special care and products to maintain a rich appearance. Our professionals are uniquely trained in vinyl and leather services.

Paint Protection and Correction

Getting your car regularly detailed keeps the paintwork protected and increases the life of the paint and the car itself. An occasional cut and polish are highly recommended to bring back any paintwork that has faded or been exposed to the harsh Brisbane and  Gold Coast outdoor elements. The salty air causes major problems to all vehicles on the Gold Coast and it is important to have that salty residue washed off cars regularly. A professional polish adds a barrier between the paintwork and the salt air, protecting the car from rust.

Cut and Polish

Cut and polishing, it is important to use the right compounds and polishes with the right pads and machines along with the right technique to achieve the perfect finish. It is vital to apply that perfect pressure on the cutting machine to give the pad that perfect heat. Experts at Shines Detailing have many years of experience in the field so rest assured that we will give your vehicle the love it needs.

Buffing Swirl Removal

Marine Upholstery Detailing

Marine upholstery can normally be cleaned quite easily using a soft bristle brush and upholstery cleaners removing sunscreen, dirt, mould and mildew etc.  Then a marine vinyl protection layer must be use to prevent unwanted staining and sticking again.

Restoring Marine Gelcoat

Unlike car paint, detailing marine gelcoat requires different grades of compounds and sometimes even sanding. Gel coat correction, after years the gelcoat becomes porous and stained. To clarify the good news is that almost all gelcoat can be restored.

Motorbike Polishing and Detailing

Motorbike detailing, from a full detail to chrome and alloy polishing this bike even got a ceramic coating. Always be careful using a high-pressure water blaster on a motorbike and using compress air to dry the bike. As you can see cleaning, polishing, detailing will take a long time.

Ceramic Coatings

Ceramic paint protection adding value to your vehicle. A Ceramic Coating enhances the deep gloss look of your car’s paint, adding to the depth and clarity of your paint.  When a vehicle has a Ceramic Coating, water will bead on the paint in return the car will clean easier. This means that dirt and stains will have a more difficult time sticking to your vehicle, and when you wash your car it will be much easier, in return less scratches and maintaining the deep gloss look

Cleaners and Coatings

As part of our Gold Coast detailing service we also dust and clean the car air conditioning vents, dashboard panels, gear stick compartments and underneath the seats. When cleaning the seats, we use manufacturer approved cleaners and coatings that suit the surface material

Mag Wheels and  Rims

Mag wheels can make or break a car. They are often the showpiece of most high performance and luxury cars. Unfortunately, they are always touching the ground, and are the part of the car that gathers the most dirt. Mag wheels are often designed with hard edges and angles that make then look great, but also makes them more difficult to clean. Brake dust is the biggest contributor to wheel dirt and is continuously being deposited on your mag wheels each time you use your brakes. We take the time to clean all areas of your mag wheels, including the intricate nooks and crannies, as well as your brake calipers.
