In a previous blog, we reviewed the most common kind of vehicles we detail and what they say about Utah. So for this one, we plan on switching things up a little! This blog will review some of our most unusual vehicle requests and the stories behind them. Of the thousands of vehicles we have worked on, these few stand out to us for a variety of reasons. Enjoy this little peek into our detailing world!
When we get calls for vehicles that are larger we usually expect common descriptions. Rvs, boats, and motorhomes top the list each year. So when we got a call and asked for the vehicle description, being met with “it’s a mammogram truck” was not what we were expecting whatsoever! It was an unusual vehicle.
Sure enough we came out a week later to clean a big pink mammogram trailer to get it ready for a media appearance. This made the work extra rewarding, since we were helping a medical team focus on their mission while we took care of the details.
Mercedes EV Commercial Shoot
Multiple times a year we work on big events like car shows and conventions, where out detailers work tirelessly throughout the day (and sometimes the night) to keep cars shining and show ready. However, in late 2018 we got to help with a new kind of project- a commercial for a new all electric Mercedes.
We went to Park City for a few nights as the stand-by detailer. As the car was filmed over a few days we would take time between shots to shine up the vehicle and make sure no dirt or winter road salt affected the vehicle and ensure windows were clear for the cameras to see through. It was a unique experience we enjoyed talking about for awhile, and even got to see the fruits of our labor in the commercial a few months later!
When people think of vehicle detailing they usually think of cars, trucks, or buses. While all of those are accurate, did you know we also detail airplanes?
It’s true! Planes are a vehicle we detail occasionally at an hourly rate. We wash the outsides, buff and polish, and apply paint sealants, but we also handle interiors and shampoo carpet. There isn’t much we cannot do when it comes to planes, and we enjoy the challenge. If you have a plane, consider calling us up!
Detailing motorhomes, as we have mentioned a few times already, are not uncommon for us to work on. They are especially popular during summer and fall holiday seasons! However, we had one unique motorhome unusual vehicle detailing experience that stands out among the others.
This motorhome had become the home of someone who had become disabled and then all on top of that, his home had started to fall into disarray. Rather than turn down the job, we were able to send out some detailers to help do some deep cleaning and refer him to the correct service providers for other repairs he needed done. Considering we mostly clean exteriors, this was a unique motorhome situation for us- one we were glad to help with!
Did you know Lamborghini has made trucks? We didn’t until someone came to us requesting theirs be detailed!
We detailed a Lamborghini LM002 from the 1980s, a vehicle now 30-40 years old. It had been kept in great condition and mostly just needed some extra love and cleaning on the inside. Considering we are often exposed to older cars from events, this one was especially interesting because it’s a design we had not seen before.
Do you have a car or vehicle that could use some detailing? No matter how popular, rare, uncommon or common it is, we would love to help! You can take a look at our services, give us a call or text us at (801) 412-9274, or fill out a Request Form anytime. You have a lot going on, live your life, let us take care of the details.
