Like their drivers, even cars need regular bathing and pampering to look their best, too. If your vehicle is looking the worse for wear, it’s high time to give it the best auto detailing service in Ottawa.
If you want to know more about auto detailing, read on until the end of this listicle for some helpful FAQs.
In the next section, we’ll take a look at the costs associated with this service.
How Much Does Auto Detailing Cost in Ottawa?
Some auto detailing shops in Ottawa offer their services a la carte. However, since it’s practically a spa for cars, it only makes sense to offer them in packages for a full-body treatment, as well.
We took a look at the pricing scheme of some shops we’re reviewing today. Below are some estimated costs for common auto detailing services they offer.
|AUTO DETAILING SERVICE||ESTIMATED COST|
|Interior detailing (carpets and seats vacuuming, door panels and mats steam cleaning and shampooing, door jambs degreased, mirrors polished, etc.)||$140 for cars (sedans)|
$160 for trucks or SUVs
|Exterior washing (washing and drying by hand, wheels detailing, tires dressing, etc.)||$40 for cars (sedans)|
$60 for trucks or SUVs
|Washing and vacuuming only (window and wheels/tires washing and interior vacuuming)||$50 up for all vehicle types|
|Washing and waxing by hand (wash and dry by hand, complete interior vacuuming, polishing of windows and mirrors, door jamb degreasing, wheels detailing, wax coating)||$80 for cars (sedans)|
$100 for trucks or SUVs
Please note that detailing costs are likely to be higher for bigger vehicles like SUVs and trucks. Some special services could also be accommodated within bundled services at an additional cost.
The Best Auto Detailing Shops in Ottawa
Ready to get your car feeling and looking brand new with the best auto detailing services in Ottawa?
If you’re wondering which shops made the cut, we based the criteria on the following:
1. JREK Autocare
|SERVICES||Car detailing packages, ceramic coating, paint protection film, odour removal, gift cards|
|ADDRESS||1638 Carling Ave, Ottawa, ON K2A 1C5|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Friday 7.30 AM – 4 PM|
Closed on Saturdays and Sundays
We’re starting off this listicle with a Better Business Bureau-accredited shop that’s consistently gotten an A+ rating since 2004.
JREK Autocare is proud of its quality control that includes internal training of all its staff members complete with a review and guarantee. Each detailing procedure also comes with a before and after “look over” using a LED light inspection to guarantee a thorough clean.
Its car detailing packages come in three tiers: bronze, silver, and gold. The pricing is definitely more expensive than most, with the bronze package starting at $295 for cars, $320 for SUVs, vans, and trucks, and an additional $50 for extra-large vehicles.
However, since its most basic detailing services run for three and a half hours and come with a one-year ceramic sealant paint protection plus vinyl or leather conditioner, these prices could be seen as fair.
The company also offers a salt stain removal guarantee which comes with every comprehensive package and spot shampoo service. If clients discover road salt on their vehicle carpets a week after being serviced, the JREK team can steam clean them again, free of charge.
