Is there a good detail shop in Tampa?

I just want to take my car somewhere and have them take out all the scratches and get rid of all the swirl marks professionally. My car needs to be beautiful again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like they do nice work but, for those prices you can buy your own Premium Adams PC kit and have the tools and supplies to maintain your car for a long time.

True but this is for people who do not want to or do not have the knowledge to do it right. Like I said you get what you pay for in terms of level of detail I have seen $300-$400 detail jobs and they do not do half of what these guys do it's not for everyone but if you want it done right you have to pay.

If you can hold off until the Camaro Rally in March we will have an Adams rep on site we are in talks to have him hold some detailing seminars

We provide professional paint correction and detailing, but are located in Pompano. We have the best guy in the business. He details all the exotics for The Auto Toy Store and other local dealerships.

Worth it if you want to make the trip

I haven't used them yet, but it's an owner/operator setup and while I was having my car clear bra'd next door, I watched him for quite a while. IMO, he details a car like it should be done. I've always detailed all of my cars, but I'm going to let him do mine.

I do know a few top detailers in West Central Florida, if you want perfect then be prepare to pay for their services. Be careful of the ones who use the same wash bucket to wash everyone's car and are very low ball in prices.

There is this guy who comes and does 6 cars every Friday at the company next to mine. One bucket, Two rags & NO WATER. No joke.. He waterless washes 6 cars from the same bucket (a cheap waterless wash brand) and i always see him wash bottom to top and rubbing the piss out of the paint with nothing more than a wet thin rag. I watch him wipe down wheel wells then straight to the hood. The first car he washes every time is a white Mercedes AMG 63.

I shake my head every week when i see him. I'd like to both him and the cars owner.


He asked if i wanted my car "detailed" and i told him no way, my car has never been washed by anyone but me by hand since day 1. He had the nerve to tell me i was probably doing it wrong and should let a professional take care of it.

Exactly most of the detailers I have seen on web sites are $200-$400 and they estimate 3-5 hours to properly detail a car top to bottom inside and out you are going to spent 15+ hours with removing wheels, taping off the car ect.... Like I said you get what you pay for.

The price is up there, but my intention is to have him do it once (clay bar, wax, full detail, etc) then I'd do any detailing from there. So for me, spending 300.00 one time for an excellent detail job is worth it.
