There is something special about driving a really clean vehicle. In Central Florida, we are bombarded with dirty driving situations: road construction, afternoon rains, muddy streets and the unforgiving Love Bugs! When we factor in the unyielding rays of the sun, our cars and trucks can really use some tender loving care. And that is just for the outside. After hauling kids around for weeks, picking up home project supplies, and leaving fast food remnants behind, our cars, both inside and out need to be revitalized. The problem is that although we all appreciate a clean vehicle – they just seem to run better – finding the time to do it ourselves is difficult, if not impossible. Thankfully, here in East Orlando, we have Patty’s Auto Detailing to take away the burden and make our chariots sparkling clean and shiny once again.
With the economy still in the recovery phase, most people are holding onto their vehicles in lieu of purchasing a new one, doing all
they can to make their cars and trucks last. Owner and Operator of Patty’s Auto Detailing, Antonio Jimenez, knows what his customers are looking for when they bring their vehicles to him for detailing. “I know I delivered great service when my customer takes that first look at their car and I see a smile on their face or when they say ‘my car hasn’t look this good since I the day bought it,’” says Jimenez, who has been in the business for seven years and does most of the work himself. “I have worked alone for five years but this past year I needed help so my wife has been a great addition.”
Patty’s Auto Detailing is a mobile detailing service so they go to where the customer needs them. They carry their own water and electricity so they can do the work in a workplace parking lot, home driveway, or wherever the customer prefers to have the customer detailing performed.
Patty’s Auto Detailing doesn’t just do washing and waxing. The company also provides paintless dent removal, getting rid of those unsightly dents without having to repaint the vehicle. Of course they also provide hand washing, waxing, and interior shampooing and detailing. They’ll even perform headlight restoration, removing that foggy film appearance that creates a safety hazard on the lens of headlights. Patty’s Auto Detailing will also take care of any painting problems such as paint overspray removal, paint swirl removal, and will provide a paint sealant to protect your transportation investment.
Jimenez knows that people are busy and that the services he provides makes people feel good during their commute around town. He says that the hardest part of his job is getting potential customers to understand the importance of having their car detailed by a professional. “Car wash tunnels can mar, scratch paint, put swirls on paint, and they do more harm than good,” he says. Every customer with him, however, gets the same golden touch treatment: “Whether a client has a Toyota Corolla or Maserati, I treat them with the same respect. I never try to oversell the customer; I only tell them what they need to have their car look the same or better than the day they bought it.”
Riding in a shiny, clean car is just pure fun. Knowing a detailing specialist that works with integrity makes it all the better. Patty’s Auto Detailing will travel as far east as the Wedgefield/520 area, and covers Oviedo, Avalon, Winter Park, Dr.Phillips, Metro West, Oakland, Kissimmee and St. Cloud.
