Why Is Car Detailing So Expensive?

Updated: Apr 22, 2022


One of the biggest obstacles that holds people back from getting a full car detail is the price, and not understanding just what they’re paying for with the full car detailing cost.

Recently, we had a client who booked an appointment with us and was amazed at the end result we were able to produce on his new vehicle.

He told us after the car detailing service, “You know, I was initially pretty skeptical of your pricing when I booked you guys, but after seeing everything that went into it and the results, I totally get it now.”

This is a common reaction we get from people, and it’s in large part to people not understanding the amount of materials and work required to complete a high level car detail, and just how much better a full car detail is than the car wash.

How Much Does a Full Car Detail Cost?

An interior and exterior car detail (or a full auto detail) typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,000 depending on the detailing package.
