Austin Pruett Owner/Founder

My name is Austin Pruett, owner and founder of Fort Worth Auto Detail in Fort Worth, Texas. Below is the story of how Fort Worth Auto Detail came to be and some of my background in auto detailing. 

Moving to Fort Worth, Texas ​

In 2015, I married my high school sweetheart and moved halfway across the country - from Atlanta to Fort Worth, Texas, to attend seminary. We were young, broke and didn’t know anyone in Texas, yet we were incredibly excited about the new opportunities ahead.

Losing Work in 2020

Four years later, I graduated with 3 masters degrees and was excited to start my career. Enter 2020. I had verbal offers for teaching jobs, but they all failed to materialize. Because of the pandemic, I was unable to find a position and I was unfortunately laid off by the marketing company I worked for at the time.


2020 was a tough year for everyone, no doubt, including our family, but there was a lot of good that came from it, too. In May of 2020, my wife and I welcomed the birth of our first child - a baby girl named Sofia. Isn’t she precious?

 I knew I had to provide for my family, but I did not know where to turn.

Founding of Fort Worth Auto Detail

Growing up, I drove beater cars. They were great and got me from point A to point B, but after many hot Texas summers with no AC, my wife and I decided it was time to upgrade. We purchased a 2018 Mazda CX-5 GT with working doors, AC, and heated leather seats. I was ecstatic. 


Then I realized, “This is one of the biggest purchases of my life. I have to protect it and take care of it, but how do I do that?” That’s when I discovered the wonderful world of car detailing.


When I first heard of auto detailing, I thought it was a rather pretentious name for a car wash. I soon realized there is a lot of skill and technique involved in properly caring for a vehicle. I becamed obsessed - reading every article, watching every YouTube video, any piece of information I could get my hands on.


From there, I began taking care of my own car, then my wife’s car, then friends’ vehicles, then family’s, and on and on the list went. I saw more and more that I could really provide value for people. I fell in love with auto detailing. That’s when Fort Worth Auto Detail began. 


Before using our auto detailing service, most clients don’t understand the work that goes into detailing, but they are fully convinced of its value after seeing their vehicle shine and the dedication and labor that goes into their car detail. 

I'm grateful to have been able to turn this hobby into a business.
