Event for the 2020 Nissan Titan

At Onsite Detail we offer detailing event services. We really enjoyed the different challenges that come with detailing event services. Earlier this year we had the opportunity to work a multi-day event washing and detailing brand new 2020 Nissan Titans for an event put on up in Wanship, Utah. We would come in at the end of each as the trucks were coming back in. They had been out all day with Nissan, photographers, press and other influencers. Some of these trucks were for offroading. Some went out fishing and others just drove routes to check out some of the cool new features.

When they rolled back in we were able to check them out as well as we got them all cleaned up and detailed. As expected the offroading ones were covered in dust and caked in mud. Being the middle of November in the Utah mountains is was quite muddy in certain areas. Luckily throughout the event we had pretty good weather and didn’t get hit too hard with any rain or snow.

Some of the Titans went out pulling trailers and other toys to show their towing abilities as well. At this event we did have to adjust a little as the trucks came back at different times each day and and sometimes they came back pretty dirty inside and out. We really enjoy working these types of special detailing events and have really learned that changes in the detailing event services happen and adjustments need to be made. The team in charge at this event stayed on top of things and communicated well with us so that we could provide the best service possible. There was a couple nights that ran late and we were running into lighting issues. We ended using the lights from other trucks as spotlights to finish up the washes and then we could move into the parking garage for final touch ups.

We really enjoyed the opportunity of working on these cool trucks and meeting new people. If there are any types of detailing events that are need of vehicle care and cleaning and detailing maintenance we are very experienced in everything from car shows, film sets, auto events, car or drag races or even just vehicle displays. Our team can handle big and small jobs. As Utah’s #1 mobile detailing service we can also travel to the location of events and travel to various locations of the event as well.

Winter with Onsite Detail

Winter with Onsite Detail is awesome for you and your vehicle. Lots of people have tips for how to prepare for winter when it comes to cars. Lots of it is good- check your oil, gets snow tires, remember to take it slow on icy roads and avoid snow plows. Some of it is less than good, like throwing hot water on a frosted windshield. (Definitely do not do that!)

Preparing your vehicle for winter doesn’t have to be so complicated, and here at Onsite Detail we have plenty of services to help get you ready for a Utah winter. To keep it simple, this article will list the services we can do to help you, including a special limited-time deal at the end, so stay tuned!

Wash & Wax

We have a secret- we don’t use just any regular old wax. We use a hand paint sealant, which is more hydrophobic and protects from UV rays. It causes water to bead and fall away, and it lasts for 3-6 months. That’s a winter season and then some!

Cleaning your car with a Wash & Wax service before and during winter really arrives not only prepares it for the near future, but also protects your vehicle from any dirt that can damage it faster that you collected from the summer and fall. Even if you have already begun collecting salt on your wheels, we are happy to clean and protect your vehicle’s outer layers!

Headlight Restoration

Headlights are crucial in the dark months of winter, but even they need a little love. If you find your headlights are fogging up, we can help! For only $30 per pair of headlights, we can clear haziness caused by oxidation. This will dramatically increase brightness, which makes your car safer to drive in the dark and fog. Plus, it can help make a car look newer, which makes it a fun add-on!

Interior Detail

While weather typically affects the outside of cars, interiors should be considered as well. Mud and snow track in vehicles, and when it’s cold it’s not fun to clean the car despite this being a social and busy time for many! Any bacteria from trash, milk spills, or rotting food may be less prominent in the winter, but the warm seasons will mean they come back with a vengeance. You’re busy enough with the holidays, so let us clean the interior- your Christmas party dates will be thankful!

Windshield Treatment with Glassparency

Want to save money on wiper blades this winter? This is just one benefit of the many that comes with having us treat your windshield or windows with Glassparency. The rain, snow, and slush our cars get make seeing out of our windows difficult, and when the sun does come out, the ice around us can make a strong glare. Driving in Utah is hard enough!

Glassparency is a service and product we put on your windshield to help reduce glare and make it easier to clean. The biggest benefit? Liquids just glide right off! Customers who have gotten it say how they barely need to turn on their wipers when it rains because the Glassparency takes care of it for themselves. And with winter promising a few messy weather days, why not treat yourself to it? It won’t be for just one winter either, as it comes with a three year warranty! Speaking of which…

Detail My Mommy Vehicle? Is it Worth it?

Is i t worth it to detail my mommy vehicle?

Detail my mommy vehicle? Is it worth it? Back when I was detailing full time I would sometimes hear moms say things like, “I don’t really know if it’s worth it to get my car detailed, it’s going to be dirty again by next week”, or “I’ll probably need to have you come back very soon”. These might be thoughts you may or may not have had in thinking about getting your vehicle detailed. If we had this mindset with our homes, offices and other places we spend a lot of time, those places would never get cleaned and be pretty nasty and honestly unhygienic. There are many reasons to get your car detailed

For those with kids, a messy roommate, spouse or pet, you know that one hour of effort in cleaning can be easily reversed by a toddler in about 2.4 seconds. I totally get it. It’s a daily uphill climb to keep things clean and organized… but you know what? You still try to keep up with cleaning or a least tidying up. So I hope you can get a sense of the importance of having the same mentality with your vehicle. Especially if it’s your everyday vehicle, used for commuting, hauling kids and pets, bringing home loads of groceries, etc.

Detailing a dirty messy vehicle like that may sound about as annoying as trying to nail jello to a tree and keeping it clean may sound about as grueling as picking up leaves with a toothpick, but we’re here to help. We often get the minivan or SUV that is overdue for some love and help make it look, feel and smell like it was not recently the scene of a toddler melt down or soccer team victory party. Many of these vehicles that are used for your everyday errands may include vans and SUVs but that doesn’t exclude sedans and trucks that may be used as well.

It Is Worth it

Today I’m going to go over a few reasons why it’s not only a good idea but totally worth it to keep up with a regular deep cleaning of your everyday driver – even when it might be getting dirty all over again in the very near future. 

If you really think about it, the fact that your vehicle is going to be dirty again soon should be good reason why and a good idea to keep up with regular cleanings. If the “dirty messy monster” is going to be visiting again soon, without regular cleaning or detailing each visit will leave your car more and more dirty and gross. Who knows what could be going on and growing at the bottom of this mess. Especially with kids and if meals or snacks are going to be a part of your travels.

The Cheeseburger Story

I had an experience when I was detailing that involved finding a hidden treasure in the midst of an apparent dumpster explosion. As I was picking up all the trash I got to the carpet and discovered a moldy McDonalds cheeseburger. After dry-heaving my way through cleaning it up, I came to the conclusion that I was pretty sure it wasn’t biodegradable at that point. Although it was sprouting a whole new world under the cover of the cardboard and paper bag paradise.

You’d be surprised how big of a difference just taking the trash out of your car can make. Most of the time it’s the easiest part of the detail and can also make the biggest visual difference. Trust me, you don’t want to find a moldy cheeseburger (or moldy anything for that matter) in your car one day.

Don’t Be Embarrassed

Another reason that it is a good idea to keep the family taxi cleaned is because you never really know when someone else will need a ride. Going back to having a messy house, you know how horrifying it can be to let guests into your home when it looks like a bomb went off. The same thought process could be applied with having a dirty vehicle. Everyone has either been on the giving or receiving end of a ride and has either seen or had to throw bottles and trash in the back seat to open up room for a passenger. One of the easiest ways to keep your vehicle looking good is to at least keep the trash cleaned up. Having an Interior Detail done at least twice a year is highly recommended as well. It is much more motivating to keep a car clean when you put a little bit of effort into keeping and maintaining the clean. Which brings me to my next reason for keeping a clean vehicle.

Be Confident

Along with being motivating to keep a clean vehicle clean. It will also help with your confidence. It can be surprisingly empowering knowing that you have a clean car. I know that keeping your everyday vehicle is a lot easier said than done but I promise that it’s worth getting done. And if you don’t think you have the time to get it done. In addition to our in-shop detailing services we offer mobile detailing services as well. A good chunk of the business that we do are people’s everyday vehicles. People that don’t have time to drop cars off at our detail shop and we get that. Life doesn’t stop and we don’t expect you to put everything on hold so you can get your vehicle detailed. The mobile aspect of our company has brought us a lot of success and has allowed us to get to people that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to get their vehicle detailed.

Maintenance Detailing

Frequent cleanings and details will also help protect the value of the vehicle. We offer yearly packages to help with the headache of keeping vehicles cleaned and protected. If/when the day comes to sell your vehicle, you will want to show a potential buyer that you have taken care of your vehicle. If someone can see that you have taken good care of your vehicle on the surface, they will automatically know or assume the vehicle’s overall condition is great as well. They will be able to determine that you have been taking care of things below the surface. If they can see, touch and smell that, they will be more confident in purchasing a vehicle that has been well taken care of.

I hope I helped you learn something today or at least shed some light on something that may sound like a headache. For those of you who may still not be sure if you should detail your mommy vehicle on a regular basis let me just share what a few of our customers have said;

“I’m so impressed. I am a mother that works full time and has two large dogs. My car was embarrassingly bad. I splurged on a full detail and couldn’t be happier. I had no idea my car could look new again. Thanks!” – Jennifer, American Fork, Utah
“These guys were actually recommended to me from a coworker. It was my first time getting my car detailed. To say i’m satisfied is an understatement! I have two Australian Shepard’s who are a mess. My car was in desperate need. He did an AMAZING job and was so kind. He spent a good amount of time on my car, and it looks brand new! Very cheap considering all he did. Thank you so much! Will use these guys in the future, and I highly recommend.” – Michele, Sandy, Utah
“I am trying to sell our van and I had Onsite Detail come out and perform a interior detail and was amazed at the job they did! Our van looks brand new inside! They were timely and professional and I am definitely using them again.” – Melissa, South Jordan, Utah
“I’ve been a monthly customer for ten years. The price, convenience, and impeccable quality can’t be beat!” – Erica, Orem, Utah

As I mentioned before, we are here to take away the headaches and the effort that it can take for a consumer to get their vehicle detailed. WE WILL COME TO YOU! You don’t need to leave your house. You don’t need to find another vehicle. You don’t need to make ride arrangements for your kids.

 

Let us know how we can help you and what you need done. We would love to be able to help make your life a little easier if we can. We look forward to hearing from you! Safe Travels!
