What our customers are saying:
"I contacted Rob at SB Auto Detail to recondition my wife's 2004 Toyota Sequoia Limited. The Sequoia is a great SUV for our family but is 8 years old, has 150000 miles and hauls our 4 kids around on a daily basis. We have had it detailed before but it is always pretty much the same -a superficial clean and a lot of oily products inside and outside and a simple wash and wax. SB Auto Detailing is much different. I was shocked when I saw the results. The paint looked like new. The headlights were restored and brilliantly clear. This alone really changed the look of the car. The black faded trim was restored and looked incredible. The roof racks were grey before and were now back to black. The interior was equally impressive. The carpet and mats had been completely restored and they were dry. The leather seats were clean and almost as good as new (considering the use we give them I was super impressed with the improvement). We had been considering purchasing a replacement SUV due to the high mileage but we love the Sequoia and my wife was so happy with the with the car looked she said she prefers the Sequoia over anything new, so all in all Rob saved me having to consider buying a replacement vehicle. Rob and Nick at SB Auto detail are super cool and professional. They picked up the car and returned it in like new condition. I cannot recommend these guys enough."
What our customers are saying:
"Rob and his detailing expertise took care of my black station wagon with ease. The paint had rub marks in it from a previous waxing and Rob took care of them. The finish is smooth without rub marks and the shine is amazing! My 4 year old car looks brand new! He also took all the stains out of my cars carpets. Wonderful, at home service by a friendly and trustworthy gentleman!!!
Rob had previously restored the paint on my husband's 10 year old truck after a bizarre chemical spray adhered to the paint. None of our attempts to remedy the paint had worked. One buffing job by Rob and the truck looks better than new.
We are scheduling our other car with him soon!!!"
