Below are the most frequently asked questions we hear at Tan’s Auto Detailing.
How long does it take for a full exterior and interior detail?
Usually 3-5 hours depending a lot on the condition and size of the vehicle, if the vehicle
needs shampooing and pet hair removal it will be closer to the 5 hour mark.
Just Interiors usually take 2-3 hours and just exteriors usually take about an hour and a
half to 2 hours. Buff and polishes usually add an additional 1-2 hours to this.
Where are you located?
I’m located out of Washougal, WA. But I service all across the Vancouver and Portland area.
What if I’m outside of your normal service area?
I will drive pretty far (up to an hour) for a detail if the job is big enough. (full detail, with buff
and polish for example) and if my schedule can accommodate the drive time. If it’s a smaller job
I either won’t be able to do it or I have to charge a little extra
Are you certified? / Is there a certification required for detailing?
I did take a detailing class when I was starting off but they did not give out certifications because
there is no law requiring or any logical point on giving out a certification. This is a big
misconception with detailing, no certification is required. Some places sell certifications online
but these are normally either a scam or someone just trying to use it as a selling point to their
customers. Unlike becoming a personal trainer, chef, security guard and so on, there is no law
requiring a certification for detailing. Which means there is no restrictions to someone selling or
giving out on
How much experience do you have? / How long have you been detailing professionally for?
I’ve been detailing professionally full time for 2 years now and have done hundreds of vehichles.
All my employees have been trained by me personally. Aside from hands on experience I also
spend a lot of my free time researching new equipment and products and trying to further
educate my self to become an even better detailer.
What will the buff and polish get out? Will it get out scratches and oxidation?
Every vehicle is different and I can never give you a 100% yes or no on if a scratch or
other paint imperfection will get removed. But typically when I am using my most
abrasive compounding polish the following get removed.
Other paint (someone hitting your car and rubbing their paint on yours for example.)
Do you have deals for multiple vehicles?
Yes, I cut $15 off each vehicle when you schedule more than one
Do you offer discounts?
