About Shine & Dandy Auto Detailing
Hi, my name is Chris Fabbrini of Shine & Dandy Auto Detailing.
- Wheel wells
On a case by case basis, I also do headlight restorations on:
The full detail includes:
- Interior shampoo
- Cleaning the dashboard, door panels and headliner
- Cleaning and conditioning the leather seats
- Clay bar
- 4-step process on the exterior
I will make your look brand new. I also do basic washes which includes vacuum interior, dust the interior off, wash dress tires, clean windows inside and out.
The full detail takes about 4-8 hours to complete and the wash takes about 1-2 hours to complete. I've been doing this for over 20 years. I service all of AZ and I will travel out of state to Colorado and Missouri.
My company is unique because I take my time to do the job right and make sure the client is happy with my job. When I detail a vehicle that's for sale it generally sells in 2 days in one instance it sold the same day.
So if you’re looking for an excellent detailer then you have found the right place. Contact me!
You tried the rest, now come try the BEST!!!
Questions and answers
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
How long he has been doing this, how well is he on dark colored vehicles, If he guarantees anything you might want to go somewhere else because you can't make that remark. No detailer is ever going to be able to get kool aid or any other juice like that out of carpet. How long will it take to do the job? A good detailer takes about 4-8 hours depending on the vehicle. Will you remove the seats that are removable? That's the best way to clean it the right way.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
I would recommend clients who want to save money the cheapest way to do that is to get your vehicles exterior done. You can make a car look great just by doing a 4-step process on the exterior. If your interior is really dirty even a vacuum and dust off of the interior can make it look good. I do really well on interiors too.
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
I worked for a body shop and was able to get them the highest rating on Angie's list and was still unappreciated. I love working with cars and just let my work do the talking. Just give me a chance to prove it to you. I also detail for a Limo company and did for Universal Pictures. I've detailed for various used car lots but never was as happy as detailing a clients car.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
I average about 45 per year and wanting to make more. I'm honest about my services and would like to double or even triple my average so I can help more clients out by making their vehicles look really good and also help keep their vehicles value at the high end. The better the car looks the more money you will get for it. I'm the only one who can make it shine like new.
- How did you get started?
I got started detailing when I was 10 years old, by doing car washes for people in my apartment complex because I needed to make money to support my family. When I was 15 I started working at a used car lot washing cars then moved into detailing at the same lot. I love making cars look great and it shows in my work. All I ask is that you give me a chance to prove it to you.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
I will offer them any other service that's needed, I will come out every 2 weeks to wash their freshly cleaned vehicles to keep them looking new. I will also offer them if they refer me to 5 people they will get their next detail free. What ever my clients need, I will be able to do it for them and I generally need about a day notice.
- What brands or products do you work with?
I work with a variety of products. The major product I use is called adams polishes and use their interior products to clean the carpets and seats to really good condition. I also use Meguiers as well as Purple power degreaser. I found out that this stuff works really well and would never go and use anything else.
- What types of jobs are the most common?
The most common jobs are the mini vans and SUVs. I would like more uncommon cars to detail like the exotics and high end luxury. I also detailed a lot of show cars that won trophies at the major car shows including best of show. I detail a lot of sedans and coupes. The other common car is the classic muscle cars like the Firebird and Mustang.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
I specialize in full detailing making interiors and exteriors looking brand new. I make dark cars look new with no swirl marks and chrome look remarkable. I also make engines look clean from the factory. I also specialize in classic cars as well as exotics and everyday vehicles. I do limos and party buses.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
I recommend looking on the internet, like I have a Facebook page for my business for right now and I have before and after pictures of vehicles that I detailed. I have classic cars all the way to exotics on there as well as high end luxury and everyday vehicles. The other thing to recommend is that they have their phone number and when the soonest appointment would be. If your looking you need to have your schedule handy and an area where you can have it done at.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
What i wish clients knew about my profession is that it takes time to make the vehicle look good. I can't just go over to their home and detail their vehicle in 3 hours and expect to have a top notch detail job. It takes about 4-8 hours, the average would be around 6 hours. The jobs are phenomenal and you won't believe the vehicle when you see it, looks better than any car wash around.
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
The most frequent questions are whats my availability, how much do I charge, do I leave swirl marks in the black vehicles, what do I do for that price.
My availability is usually 1 day notice depending on where you live in AZ, or if your out of state it would be at least a week.
My prices vary depending on vehicle and what you want done.
I never leave swirl marks in the paint, but I can remove them really well.
What I do for a full detail is the interior shampoo, leather cleaned and conditioned, headliner cleaned, dashboard, door panels, engine, wash, clay bar, 4 step process on the exterior, clean and polish the wheels, clean and dress the tires, clean the wheel wells and the windows inside and out. Also to make sure that the client is very happy with the job and tell them about my referral process.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
The project I was proud of the most was when I worked with Universal Pictures detailing for a movie they were shooting in AZ. If they called me again I would do it in a heartbeat. I couldn't really decide but any persons car I work on I'm proud if the job that comes out. I like seeing the smiles of peoples faces when I get done with their vehicle. It makes me feel good that I can help people out that way.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
Something that clients don't know is that I'm honest, a very dependable person, a hard worker, willing to do what it takes to earn your business, a self starter, and motivated to make your vehicle the best it can be. I will be there when I say and if I'm late I'll call you ahead of time to let you know. I want to earn your business that's my goal.
